MEGADETH In The Studio For New Record
While it probably won't arrive until 2020, Megadeth has announced they're in the studio recording their new album. The new album is expected to be taken in a heavier, faster direction courtesy of ex-Soilwork drummer Dirk Verbeuren, who has revealed that at the very least there will be blast beats. This will be Megadeth's first with Verbeuren and second with ex-Angra guitarist Kiko Loureiro.
More information as it becomes available. Last we heard from Mustaine himself, there's one song he compares to something Mercyful Fate would do.
"We're trying to keep with that real heavy thing. Dystopia was more of us doing what makes us feel good; there's a lot of super-heavy, fast drumming at the end of some songs."
"My son was in here two days ago, and when we were doing Dystopia, he was listening to the songs and making comments, and the ones he commented on were the ones that got the best response. When he came over this time, we were working on a song that has the tentative title 'The Dogs Of Chernobyl', and the intro riff has kind of a Hungarian guitar part, kind of like something Mercyful Fate did on 'Into The Coven'. The song comes in super powerful and strong, and my son goes, 'Oh god, that's heavy as hell!' and I just started laughing."
