Dave Mustaine Talks 'Super Collider:' 'I'm Not the Kind of Musician That Won't Allow Myself to Grow'
Megadeth mastermind Dave Mustaine recently discussed the band's latest effort "Super Collider," pointing out the importance of keeping the sound of metal four-piece constantly fresh and evolving. "I didn't want to make the same record over and over," Mustaine told Knac.com. "I like to explore and take chances and push the limits to try something different. So many people think a band should always sound the same but I don't want to do that. It can be a challenge to work out something new and I think we have done that." The singer/guitarist continued, "I'm not the kind of musician that won't allow myself to grow. If I hadn't taken some risks there would be no Megadeth. Some fans want you to make the same song and sound the same all the time but that is just not me." Mustaine also talked about Megadeth's longevity, expressing gratitude over the fact that the band's audience now spans across several generations. "It is really flattering for us to look out and see parents bringing their kids to experience music together and I have looked back over my life and I think of how grateful I am to still be here and that I want to be able provide a positive experience to show kids that you can have a great future in music," the frontman concluded. "Super Collider" saw its release on June 4 via Universal-powered label Tradecraft as the fourteenth record in the band's opus. With 29,000 units shipped in the US during the first week, it peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 chart.
