F5
A DRUG FOR ALL SEASONS
DEADLINE

Former Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson returns with an unexpected slant with his new quintet F5. Drawing from the lineage of nu-metal such as Sevendust and Disturbed, A DRUG FOR ALL SEASONS is a far cry from anything Megadeth did, even at the band’s most safe offering RISK Instead, Ellefson combined a stellar twin guitar assault and former Sick Speed throat Dale Steele to handle the melodic metal duties, allowing his new band the inevitable comparisons. Solid and succinct, tracks like “Dissidence” and “Bleeding” mesh hard rock’s rough and tumble approach with a modern twist, making F5 a viable outfit rather than a famous metal musician’s new side project.
