150 Drummers Perform Megadeth's Symphony Of Destruction: Megadeth News

(hennemusic) More than 150 drummers played along to Megadeth's 1992 classic, "Symphony Of Destruction", in Sao Paulo on August 9 in an attempt to set a new Guinness World Record as the band with the largest number of drummers playing along.

The project, Bateras 100% Brazil, was conceived by Dino Verdade, owner of the biggest drum school franchise in Brazil, Bateras Beat. The project's goal is to gather as many drummers as possible to play together their own music and big hits, with the principle of sharing a killer groove.

On August 9 at Ibirapuera Park in Sao Paulo, Brazil, approximately 156 drummers - among them women, children, seniors and people of all ages - brought their own drum kits to play along to Megadeth, KISS, The Rolling Stones and Daft Punk.

On the stage to play "Symphony Of Destruction" were Amilcar Christófaro (Torture Squad), Jean Dolabella (Udora and ex-Sepultura), Bart (Whale Mutant), Edu Garcia (John Wayne) and Nana (Alma Djem), with Dino Verdade (Brotheria) conducting the band and all the drummers.

The Brazil drum event comes on the heels of last month's viral video featuring 1000 Foo Fighters fans playing the band's 1999 hit, "Learn To Fly", in Cesena, Italy in the hopes of convincing the group to play a show in their city. Read more and watch video here.
