ELLEFSON – No Cover (2020)

David Ellefson announces to release a new solo album; “No Cover“. Under the name ELLEFSON the Megadeth bassist cooperates with various artists from bands like TESLA, SLAUGHTER, ANTHRAX, ICON, SLASH, etc, to make a bunch of covers of classic hard rock / metal anthems, ranging from DEF LEPPARD (look the artwork) JUDAS PRIEST and FASTWAY to W.A.S.P., NAZARETH, etc.
While recording a few cover songs for B-sides and bonus tracks for his upcoming Ellefson solo LP (due out in the Spring of 2021), David and his band, Thom Hazaert (vocals), Andy Martongelli / Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (guitars), and Paolo Caridi (drums), decided to create enough cover songs for an entire album.
The result is a fun record with a lot of talented guests that pays homage to some of his heroes with killer renditions of timeless classic tunes.
