Megadeth Tell the World to “Soldier On!” with New Song and Video


Earlier this morning, Megadeth released a visualizer for the new track “Soldier On!” off of their forthcoming album, The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead! Full of rah-rah military themes and damn groovy riffage throughout, the song’s pretty much what you’ve come to expect from the band in 2022.

  • Does it talk about war? Check.
  • Does it talk about fighting through adversity? Check.
  • How about those guitars? Chugging riffs and soaring solos? Check.
  • Consistent, yet effective rhythm section? Check.

Yes, it sounds like Dave’s got a formula running in the band’s next offering, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing if it’s what you’re into. At this point, we’re just happy to be writing about actual music and not David Ellefson for once.

You can check out the video/visualizer below. Megadeth’s new album The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead! drops September 2 and is currently available for pre-save and pre-order.
