MEGADETH ‘DONE FOR NOW’ ON NEW ALBUM AS THEY PREPARE FOR THE UK

Posted on February 7, 2009

Dave Mustaine, main man and shredder of thrash metal titans MEGADETH has posted up the following update on the bands OFFICIAL WEBSITE.

“I am sitting in my office at 5:30ish AM and am typing this as I try to wake up. Yesterday, Andy Sneap went back to the UK for a while, as we are preparing to go out on the Priest Feast Tour. This means effectively that the recording has stopped, until we return in March/April. We finished all of the rhythm and bass guitars, as well as the drums being finished for a couple weeks now, and I think I even heard some acoustic layers. The reaction from our management, family, friends (the real critics), and my number one judge and coach Justis, has been pretty positive.”

This coincided with a post from bassist James on the bands OFFICIAL MYSPACE blog:

“Just finished my last set of bass tracks Last night. I’m really pleased and excited for you all to hear the new stuff. At this stage, it’s very cool with an old school kind of “thrash-y” vibe. Some of it calls to the old Megadeth style, which is cool and some of it is just plain HEAVY! Dave’s guitar is sounding mean and when I left yesterday, Chris was just fixin’ to put in some leads…
That’s it for now, gotta pack for the Priest Feast…”

The band hit the UK next week for the afforementioned ‘…Feast’-
