Thanks to for promoting Megadeth: Another Time, A Different Place!!


Bill Hale is a well-known photographer who has shot such legendary bands as Deep Purple, Black Sabbath, UFO and many others. Perhaps, he is best known to many metal fans by his excellent photo book about the early days of Metallica ("The Club Dayz 1982-1984") which we have presented here at Rockpages a while ago. Now, Bill Hale, is about to unleash his latest photo installment with a book dedicated to the early days of Megadeth with a foreword by Dave Mustaine himself! Rockpages will review this one too and needless to say we are anxiously waiting for its release date which is slated for early March. Here's the press release:

Due on March 13 via MTV Press, "Megadeth: Another Time, A Different Place" gives the audience a front-row seat into the early days and meteoric rise of this young band who would become one of the most influential groups of all time and, with ANTHRAX, SLAYER, and METALLICA, consistently touted among the best "thrash metal" bands ever to cross the stage. This is the first MEGADETH photography book and only the second book documenting their rise to rock glory, including rare, never-before-seen photographs representing a small but crucial period of time in their career. Author Bill Hale's photographs, from intimate backstage photographs to screaming, kinetic live shots, are the images of a young band prepared to take on the world.
MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine writes in the foreword, "The 'work' that you hold in your hands now is the work of a friend, who is also a 'photo-grrrrrrr-apher,' and who has captured the very essence of my career: hungry, gritty, hard, cold, impersonal, personal, and very personal. Also, the sensitive unseen side of me, which was somewhat of an anomaly with the public and left me an enigma to my peers."
