Glen Drover:   The Sacred Shrine album will be the Original recording, as we felt that it would be cool to let people hear the beginnings of the band.
Glen Drover:   We are all very happy with the way Coma Nation turned out and we have decided to use that album as a template for the future, as we believe it is the best representation of Eidolon at this point.
Glen Drover:   Well, when we first started, we were only building the studio to accommodate the band, but now I have started recording other bands as well, which is great.

Of course, unlike his boyhood hockey idols, Drover probably won’t make his debut at the Corral by removing his helmet and standing on guard for O Canada; actually, it’s a pretty safe bet to assume the national anthem won’t be heard at all, unless Drover himself decides to indulge some kind of Hendrix-ian urge.
The fact is, for all his intensity, aggression, and power, Drover is a guitarist, not a smooth skating defenseman, and he plays not on the Calgary Flames but for another ‘80s institution which weathered some lean years in the late ‘90s to recently recapture some of their former glory.
Drover acknowledges his musicianship isn’t all that eventually got him the gig (“It’s a package deal—there’s definitely an image involved, and an attitude and work ethic,” he admits) although in a band like Megadeth, it’s a given he can play a pretty mean guitar.
