Chris Poland born December 1, is an American musician, best known for being the former guitarist for American thrash metal band Megadeth from to and again for a brief return in During this time, he recorded the albums Killing Is My Business And Business Is Good! But Who's Buying? However, his parts were not used for the final album. Recently, he has been associated with the progressive metal band Redemptionwith whom he has recorded two albums and made a live guest appearance.
Poland began playing the guitar at the age of 7 in Dunkirk, New York. He says that he learned timing, rhythm and feel from playing with Gar while adding that playing with him made him a better player. Megadeth had been co-founded the previous year by Dave Mustaine who previously played for fellow thrash metal band Metallica and David Ellefson.
After seeing Samuelson perform live with Megadeth, Poland went backstage and suggested an impromptu audition as a lead guitarist. Poland thereafter became a full-time member of the band, along with Samuelson drumsMustaine lead vocals, guitarand Ellefson bass. However, Poland left Muezzin - Spontan Music Trio - Live Im Tunnel Am 12.3.1987 band during the tour to support the album due to a business dispute and was temporarily-replaced by guitarist Mike Albert.
Poland later rejoined the band to record their second album Peace Sells The album was highly acclaimed critically for both its instrumental and lyrical complexity, and is today considered widely to be one of the defining records of thrash metal. Poland has often commented in interviews that the fact that the band had been playing the songs from the "Peace Sells. Mustaine later referred to Poland as "an Chris Poland - Rare Trax guitar player—he can play circles around me".
In Julya conflict arose between Mustaine and Poland regarding a T-shirt contract that Poland claimed to have been left out of. Poland quit the band in protest leading to an ongoing feud between the two musicians.
So What! Mustaine wrote a song called " Liar " about Poland's drug use and lifestyle. Chris Poland - Rare Trax would regularly dedicate it to Poland during live performances. After leaving Megadeth, Poland was successfully treated for substance abuse, and joined punk rock legends The Circle Jerks as a bass player. Although he did not record with the group there are several bootlegs and videos on YouTube featuring Poland on bass with The Circle Jerks.
Written mostly while on the road with The Circle Jerks, inPoland released Return to Metalopolishis first recorded musical output post-Megadeth. Shortly before recording Return to Metalopolis, Poland agreed to record demos for Megadeth's fourth album, which was to be entitled, Rust in Peacebut declined what would be the first of two offers to re-join the band permanently in this instance partly because of his concentration on his solo album, and the fact that, since most of the album's music and arrangements had already been written, Poland felt that the scope for his input would be limited.
Guitarist Marty Friedman joined Megadeth later that year, and adapted some of Poland's guitar solos for the release version of Rust in Peacewhich would go on to be one of Megadeth's most critically praised albums.
The demos recorded for the "Rust In Peace" record can be found as bonus tracks on the remastered version of "Rust In Peace," which were released by Mustaine without Poland's permission, in There is about Chris Poland - Rare Trax album's worth of B-sides from the debut recording as well as rehearsals of several songs the band was working on for their sophomore effort that have never been released.
