drummer Shawn Drover
gave a fresh studio update, reporting he had spent a week with frontman Dave Mustaine
demoing ideas for the next album. And it'll be a heavy one."Spent this week in the studio with Dave tracking demo 'ideas' for the next record,"
the drummer noted via Facebook
. "Some really heavy riffs going on here and if I say it you know its true."
As reported, Mustaine has confirmed that the band will start "piecing together"
the new album as soon as the current tour is wrapped up.
When it comes to the actual studio entrance, Dave hinted at a possibility of reuniting with producer Max Norman
, who was in charge of production duties on the group's classic efforts "Countdown to Extinction
" and "Youthanasia
.""He had gotten out of making records and he's back into making records and I thought, 'I wonder what it would be like to maybe try one song with this guy and see if we can catch lightning twice,'"
the frontman told Full Metal Jackie
. "It's just neat to be in that position where you can do stuff like this."
In the most recent Megadeth-related news, Mustaine has delivered a guitar rendition of the US National Anthem
for Dinesh D'Souza
's upcoming movie "America
