Here’s More Evidence That FELIPE ANDREOLI Is New MEGADETH Bassist

Felipe Andreoli Dave Mustaine

It’s already been speculated that ANGRA‘s Felipe Andreoli is new MEGADETH bassist after Dave Mustaine posted recent Cameo video and briefly showing new bass player and his instrument.

MEGADETH current guitar player Kiko Loureiro played with Andreoli for 14 years in ANGRA and there is also a video on YouTube of Andreoli covering MEGADETH‘s classic “Holy Wars… The Punishment Due.”

But here’s something interesting. Andreoli usually plays 6 string bass, but just yesterday he took to Instagram to show photos of his new 5 string Ibanez bass which looks almost identical to the one we saw in Mustaine‘s video. Now that’s a very odd coincidence!

Check the photos below.

And here is the one from MEGADETH studio:
