DAVE MUSTAINE shares riff from upcoming MEGADETH album

03-08-2021

Dave Mustaine has shared another song snippet from MEGADETH’s upcoming album.

The MEGADETH leader offered a brief preview of the track at the end of a promotional video for his account on Cameo, which lets users hire celebrities to record brief, personalized video messages about virtually any topic. Check out the punishing new riff starting at the 22-second mark in the YouTube clip below.

Earlier in the week, Mustaine revealed in a Cameo message that MEGADETH’s long-awaited sixteenth studio album is “almost done.” He added: “I’m just listening to the last little bits right now. Kiko’s (Loureiro, guitar) stuff is all done. We should be turning this in any day now. We’ve been turning in individual songs, and right now it’s down to just approving the last couple of songs. So, keep your fingers crossed and hold your breath. It won’t be long till there’s a new MEGADETH record.”

Last month, Mustaine confirmed that the new MEGADETH album will be titled “The Sick, The Dying And The Dead”.

Dave previously floated “The Sick, The Dying And The Dead” as a “tentative” title for the new MEGADETH disc during a January 2021 Zoom chat with fans.

Mustaine has yet to reveal who played bass on the new MEGADETH album after David Ellefson’s tracks were removed from the LP following his dismissal from the band in late May.
