David Ellefson Seems… Uhh… Excited For The New Record, Maybe?
Usually when the band is at the beginning of their record cycle, you hear cliché phrases like "this is our heaviest record yet" or "this is some of our most progressive material to date" or "we really went back to our roots on this one."
Megadeth's David Ellefson went a different route when asked about the new material on the "White Line Fever" podcast:
"Well, I'd like to think it's not gonna be a stinker, that's for sure."
You'd like to think?? Aren't you in complete control of if said music is "a stinker" or not? David continues:
"I'd like to think it's gonna be a pretty kick-ass record."
Your lack of confidence in the new material is a bit troubling, David. What else?
Yeah, I'll tell you, there's a couple of things on there that are certainly heavy, but they're very forward-thinking for Megadeth — in a good way; not some pop right turn or anything like that. So I'd like to think when the record says 'Megadeth' on it, you're gonna get Megadeth inside of it.
Well if the record says Megadeth but the music inside of it is not Megadeth, then that seems to be a problem at the printer, doesn't it?
Anyway, we can't really tell if this will be a stinker or not until we hear the material, so we'll reserve judgement. But I do recall hearing Mustaine say that their last album, Super Collider was forward-thinking and we know how good that turned out.
