Killing is My Birthday… and Birthday is Good!
June 12 marked the thirtieth anniversary of the release of Killing is My Business… and Business is Good!, the debut album from Megadeth. And if you thought that Dave Mustaine was just going to let such an important birthday slip by without any form of celebration, well… guess again!

Lewis, who has already worked with, like, every band ever (Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Six Feet Under, Arsis, DevilDriver… the list goes on and on), added the following:
On a positive note… It's all true. Had no idea @davemustaine would announce it, but I am beyond thrilled to be a part of an album I grew up listening too. It's an honor and It really is coming along so killer. I'm excited for the world to hear what we've done with this incredible piece of metal history. #megadeth #killingismybusiness #30years
The question, of course, is: “What will be on this version of the record?” Mustaine already released a deluxe remixed and remastered version of the album in 2002, so… are he and Lewis now re-remixing and re-remastering it? Is there bonus material from the vaults yet to be released? Is there a re-recording aspect? Presumably, we’ll find out soonish…
