ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Really nice work!" - Dave Mustaine, Megadeth
"Vital and explosive ... a terrific sound." - David Harrington, Kronos Quartet
"Amazing ... the arrangements work perfectly. The playing is spot on! All the phrasing, even note for note guitar solos – on speed cello." -Revolution Magazine

Primitivity “PLAYS MEGADETH FOR CELLO” salutes the state-of-the-art metal band Megadeth by reinventing eight passionate tracks through the intense and beautiful sound of the cello. The album resurrects such Megadeth classics as Symphony of Destruction and Train of Consequences and redefines them for cello. Thick power chords resonate through the opening of Skin O’ My Teeth, and lush harmonies permeate the choruses of Addicted to Chaos and À Tout Le Monde. Speeding riffs and blistering solos reign during Hangar 18, and deep emotions are summoned during Foreclosure of a Dream. Arranged, recorded and performed solely by cellist Loren Westbrook-Fritts, Primitivity “PLAYS MEGADETH FOR CELLO” is passionately driven and uncompromising in its intentions to bring to life the music of Megadeth through the unique voice of the cello.

PERSONAL NOTE
Plays Megadeth for Cello is a reinterpretation of the music of my favorite heavy metal band, Megadeth, one of the most revolutionary bands in the history of rock music. I grew up listening to Megadeth and studying the cello, although not at the same time. When I was 17 I started to imagine playing their music on the cello. When I composed the arrangements, I tried to capture the original intent of the songs while also transforming them into a new classical instrumentation. Sometimes my classical approach is prominent. Other times my rock influence dominates the interpretation. Both styles interact in beautifully unanticipated ways. I would like to dedicate this album to my family whose love and support made this album possible. I hope you enjoy listening to Plays Megadeth for Cello as much as I enjoyed making it.
