The first new Megadeth album since 2016 is well underway at this point. Guitarist and vocalist Dave Mustaine recently revealed to Out Of The Box With Jonathan Clarke that bass and drums are all recorded, rhythm guitar is mostly done, and then solos and vocals are next.
"We're in the process of doing guitar solos right now. Kiko Loureiro is at the studio with me, and we're done with all the bass and drums and almost done with all of the rhythms. We've still got little punch-ins we need to do here and there, and then it's off into singing and solo land. And then probably the last thing, which is always my favorite thing, is the ear candy."
