Kublai Khan  


Kublai Khan was once promoted as "featuring ex-Megadeth guitarist Greg Handevidt", and indeed Handevidt was the original second guitarist in the band, having moved to California with high school friend Dave Ellefson and hooking up with Dave Mustaine shortly after Mustaine's departure from Metallica. Handevidt left after a few months, returned to Minnesota, and formed Kublai Khan. Not surprisingly, Annihilation does sound somewhat like early Megadeth -- though the production was a bit thin, the songs were energetic and interesting, really a pretty good album in its day. The band broke up within a year of the album's release. Bassist Mike Liska has played in various (non-metal?) local Minnesota bands over the years, and most recently has been in a band called Tim Mahoney And The Meenies.
