David Ellefson (Megadeth, Altitudes & Attitude, Metal Allegiance) on The MetalSucks Podcast #274
David Ellefson of Megadeth, Altitudes & Attitude and Metal Allegiance is our guest this week, discussing all of his current projects. We discuss the new Altitudes & Attitude album Get It Out, the classic rock n’ roll influence behind the the songs and the writing process between he and Frank Bello (also of Anthrax). We also talk about his realization that the rock n’ roll lifestyle is an illusion after finding success in the industry, the difficulties he had adjusting to life in Los Angeles after moving from his native Minnesota, the difficulties of creating music during the ’90s, the balance of serving the mainstream and thrash communities, which reviled Megadeth record he prefers more, Risk or Super Collider, and how he balances so many different projects at once.
Petar, Brandon, and Jozalyn discover what incels are and create a divorce attorney for them, chime in on the Gene Simmons vs. Ace Frehley drama, and discuss the rumors of Tool’s new record arriving in April.
