Ha!!!!!!! What a day!!! (15.III.2006)
I'm so happy, I cannot express how much just in words, we should all gather and have a party of the year. hahah
I want to thank you all for so many warm words, support, and greetings. I can't answer to everybody - so I want to thank you all here, I really appreciate that!!!
The biggest thanks should go to mr. Dave Mustaine - who is one of the greatest persons on the whole metal scene, and for me personally - the man who made music which was always close to me (since '92 when I've heard Megadeth for the first time).
I would like to thank also the persons who encouraged me so strong and still believed that I'm gonna make it: my sister - Kamila, my ex (Anna), my eternal brothers Pawel G. & Kamil S., and the whole wolf pack from Cracow (especially: heavy asses from Witchking band: [link]
Salutes to all artists who were in this contest!!! There were many works that really kicked asses! And I'm real lucky that I was the finalist. Cheers for you all!!!
Thanks also to the LTD & DA, for a great guitar!
It came to me like star from the sky - I needed a new guitar to record my new Nepenthe stuff, and I was prepaired to buy a new one (maybe it's little ironic and funny - it meant to be a Jackson guitar hah
Iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiihaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaa !!!!!!!!!!
NOTE: Full view very recommended
I wanted to do a work that is upgrade/update of Vic, not to do something completely new. I'm listening Megadeth since '90, and lot of my friends too, so I tried to think in the way of Megadeth fans - when they will see the new Vic. I tried to make something that will cause that they will say:
"Oo, that's something new...",
not: "What the hell is this? What a crap... Megadeth went under...".
So I it's a Vic figure design, not a cover or stuff like that. Megadeth can use it just like they want to, putting him in some new situation or scene.
My other versions ov VIC:
Killing is My Bussiness remake: [link]
VIC ver.5: [link]
VIC ver.7: [link]
That's also a great moment for salutes to Dave Mustaine and Megadeth. I grew up on their music, and I have maximum respect for that. I hope the Megadeth will still deliever us the sonic pleasure like it was through all these years.
