Return to Metalopolis was the beginning of Chris Poland’s solo career, after leaving multi-platinum artists, Megadeth, in 1987.  The Return To Metalopolis disc has been a cult classic for years, having been reissued several times worldwide.  Lion Music is proud to share with you the only known live moments on tape from the short-lived tour in support of this classic release.  Recorded live in 1991 at the now defunct Mason Jar in Phoenix, Arizona, Return to Metalopolis Live is a chance for fans to see how this inventive material translated over into a live situation.  The recording is as is and would be the beginning of the line-up that progressed into the band, Damn The Machine, who released their self titled disc in 1993 on A&M Records.  Listening to Return To Metalopolis Live, shows how Chris’ playing has evolved over the years, but it also shows that even back then he was pushing the boundaries of the  guitar, with his trademark cutting tone and style.  In addition to a couple of studio demo outtakes from past years, we thought it would be cool to include of OHM: performing a reworked version of the Metalopolis classic, “Alexandria”.  This release is for the Chris Poland fans that have been so supportive throughout the years.  We hope you enjoy!
