Dave Mustaine Shares Another Sample From the New Megadeth Album
“I wanted to let you know I’ve extended my account on Cameo,” Dave Mustaine says in a new video, “because I’ve been having such a great time connecting with all of you and answering your questions.” Which I think is a very nice way of saying “I’m making good money with this thing so let’s keep it goin’.”
Hey, fine by me! Mustaine’s Cameo videos continue to be the #1 source of intel on Megadeth’s new album, The Sick, The Dying and The Dead.
For example: we know the new Megadeth album is called The Sick, The Dying and The Dead because, after first floating it as a tentative title in January, Mustaine confirmed it via — you guessed it! — a Cameo video. That same video also contained a brief sample a music from the album.
Which brings us back to this new video announcing that Mustaine will continue to accept payment to congratulate your friend on successfully completing their court-mandated driving classes. It contains a much clearer, albeit equally brief, sample of The Sick, The Dying, and The Dead.
All my ribbing aside, the riff we can to hear in this clip sounds very promising. If the whole record sounds like this, we’ll have another winner on our hands.
You can check out the video below. Skip to around the 22 second mark if you just wanna hear the music.
Go here to hire Dave Mustaine to applaud your kid’s recent Certificate of Attendance for the fifth grade.
Megadeth have been re-recording the album’s bass parts following the dismissal of David Ellefson earlier this year. The band’s new bassist is rumored to be Steve DiGiorgio (Death, Testament, Obituary, etc.), but that has yet to be confirmed.
Megadeth begin a tour with Lamb of God, Trivium, and Hatebreed (replacing In Flames) in August, so we should know what’s what sooner rather than later.
