When megadeth is in mexico I always have to travel, but the furthest is Mexico DF, almost 1000 kmIf you had a chance to chat with any one of the band members, who would you talk to and what would you want to discuss?
I'd choose Dave and ask him what does he think about the world pollution, if he's interested on the care of planet. This is a topic for what I'm interested and I'd like to know what he think about itDo you have a favorite Megadeth guitar solo?
Yes, tornado of soulsTo you, are Megadeth songs more feeling or more thinking?
More feelingHave you introduced anyone else to Megadeth?
I've tried, but I haven’t been successful hahaWhich Megadeth song means the most to you and why?
Tears in a vial. That song means a lot for me because in a difficult stage of my life, I heard it over and over again cause the lyrics agreed perfectly with what was happening with me at this time and helped me a lot to understand certain things and think on a different wayWhat do you like best about being in the Cyber Army?
Contests, chats with the band members and know Megadeth fans around the worldWhen did you join the club and what is your Cyber Army member number?
Dec 2012 number 12907What do you admire most in Dave Mustaine?
His strength and dedication. I feel a huge admiration for him cause as we know, behind the Megadeth that have now, there was a lot of obstacles.His life was hard. Had carencies in his childhood, drugs problems, rehabs, his neck surgery etc. So it's a pleasure to see all that he accomplished.What does being a true Megafan mean to you?
A true megafan is always supporting the band in every moment. And have to know that we are a big MegafamilyHave you got any interesting Megadeth stories for us?
Yep! at the end of the Mexico Metal fest, last year in Monterrey, my friend Alice and I was walking on The underground parking and I din't know how it was possible but David, Kiko and Dirk was in front of us. After this I went to the hotel where they was and I meet with all the guys again, including a Dave Mustaine, Dave McRobb and Adriano. Definitely one of my best experiences

Dante AlbarelliMale of the WeekMonday, January 16, 2017
We asked Dante...How long have you been a Megadeth fan?
Over 6 years now, since I was 14 years old.What was the first Megadeth song you ever heard?
Back In The Day, when I was 6 years old, in the Duck Dodgers cartoon.Was there a certain song that made you a Megadeth fan?
Symphony Of Destruction was the song that opened the door for all other Megadeth masterpieces.What are your three favorite Megadeth songs?
This is by far the hardest questions. It’s almost impossible to pick just three songs. But if I pick my three favorite albums, and pick my favorite song from each album, then I would have to choose: Take No Prisoners, Addicted To Chaos and This Was My Life.What is your favorite Megadeth album?
First album I ever heard entirely was Countdown To Extinction, so I have a deep bond with it. But the quintessential masterpiece of art (any art, of any kind and any era) is Rust In Peace.How many times have you seen Megadeth live?
5 times, and counting!What is your favorite Megadeth lyric?
Personally, the best lyrical composition is Victory, specially because of what it meant to Dave. Every person who achieves something big with great effort, is in fact, a victory.Who do you think Vic Rattlehead was when he was alive?
Was alive? I’ve seen him live 5 times… But he sure is a bad motherfucker.What's your favorite Megadeth album cover?
Due to the political implications of it’s lyrics, and the small details and hidden messages, I’d have to say The System Has Failed.What is your favorite piece of Megadeth merch?
The Vic Rattlehead ring Dave gave me himself!
Dante explains...How long you have been coming to the Megadeth forums?
About a year ago, since I first joined the Cyber Army.Have you met the band? If so, what did you say?
Yes, two times. I had a thousand things in mind to say, but the only thing that came out of my mind at the time was “THANK YOU!” Other fans know the struggle…What's the furthest you've travelled to see Megadeth?
All across the South American continent, from Quito, Ecuador to Buenos Aires, Argentina.If you had a chance to chat with any one of the band members, who would you talk to and what would you want to discuss?
It’s hard not to pick Dave, but since I’m a bass player and I do that for a living, I think that David would have a couple of tips and advices for me.Do you have a favorite Megadeth guitar solo?
You mean, besides Tornado? …Kick The Chair!To you, are Megadeth songs more feeling or more thinking?
Depends of the album, I guess. I personally feel that Rust In Peace is a little bit more thinking, due to its technical and progressive style. On the other hand, Youthanasia or So Far, So Good… So What! seem to me to have more feelings involved, anger specially!Have you introduced anyone else to Megadeth?
That’s our mission as Megafans! Family Tree members, ex girlfriends, friends and band members.Which Megadeth song means the most to you and why?
I’ll Be There. It taught me that even though persons may come and go, Megadeth will LITERALLY always be there for me.What do you like best about being in the Cyber Army?
Meeting new people, the giveaways and contests, and specially, being close and in touch with the band.When did you join the club and what is your Cyber Army member number?
New account created a while ago… Overall, a year, more or less.What do you admire most in Dave Mustaine?
His will power and perseverance in life. The struggle of making it on his own, fighting against addictions, are things that really make me look up to him as an idol and very influential person in my life.What does being a true Megafan mean to you?
Loving Megadeth above all other bands. Living your life through Megadeth’s music, getting as many people as you can to join in and share the great passion we have for them.Have you got any interesting Megadeth stories for us?
In 2014, it was the second time Megadeth came to Ecuador. It was the second half of the show. People had been throwing Ecuador flags to the stage all concert so Dave would pick them up, but he didn’t. The time came when Dave actually needed a flag so he could do this “ritual” thing when he walks around the stage with the flag and then hangs it in this mic stand. So he saw our flag, which was (very firmly) tied with wire in the front row. He asked us (me and my friend) for the flag, so we had to tear it a little bit to get it out… It was taking much more time than expected and I was very nervous, I actually had Dave Muscatine waiting!! When I finally gave the flag to Dave, he looked at me like everything was alright like if we knew I was in a bit of trouble and it was ok… And winked at me. Best moment ever at a Megadeth concert.
