Megadeth frontman Dave Musatine, has been recently interviewed by Keith Carman of ChartAttack.com. You can view a few passages below:

On his band's latest effort, “United Abominations“:

“I don't know how long the band will be around for or if this will be our last record, but it's certainly the best we've done in a long time. There's a warmth and chemistry in the band that has been missing for a long time. The new members are surprising me because they've been a blessing. They're the right fit, which is exciting for me. They've gotten used to the idiosyncrasies of this band and are energized.”

On MEGADETH's musical evolution:

“I write the music myself and you can tell when a band is going through the motions. When you have to deal with group problems, you tend to turn your ears off. There are only three things that cause problems: women, money and religion. What else has started any war? When I eliminated those problems, I could write more enjoyably.”

On what people expect to hear from a band called “MEGADETH“:

“I see a band's moniker as their face. There's a reason the face is where it is and the ass is where it is.

“There are some bands I won't even listen to because the name offends me. It portrays them as something instantly. Still, on a musical level, I'm not going to make a [affects country tone] Meg'erdeath record any time soon. There's a history to this band that we live up to. Stylistically speaking, this is what I'm good at, and the heart of the music is all that matters.”
