Megadeth Streaming Two New 'Super Collider' Tracks
Thrash titans Megadeth have officially premiered two new tracks off their upcoming record "Super Collider." Titled "The Blackest Crow" and "Built for War," the songs prove that despite being three decades into their musical career, Dave Mustaine and co. still have some fresh tricks and the will to experiment with their music. This mostly goes for "The Blackest Crow," the banjo-driven tune with some clear Bluegrass influences. Featuring a few neat slide guitar fills, the gloomy mid-tempo jam clocks in at just under four and a half minutes and is inspired by the Alzheimer's Disease battle Mustaine's mother-in-law is going through. The frontman also discussed the previously announced guest appearance from country icon Willie Nelson, explaining that their schedules simply couldn't line up. Mustaine also admitted sending the cut to country star Miranda Lambert, who rejected the offer. "Although she declined, her manager was polite enough to reportedly say she didn't feel she could make the song better," the frontman said. "I was very flattered." You can check out "The Blackest Crow" in the player below (exclusive by the Rolling Stone).
The second tune, "Built for War," is less experimental and more direct, in-your-face heavy track. Upbeat tempo, rocking riffs galore and somewhat of a warmongering bridge are all the reasons you need to check this one out as well. "I think Megadeth is a very unique musical outfit and [we've] stood the test of time," Mustaine said while commenting the new song. "We're almost 30 years old and we're still relevant, [and] we're still making good records." You can listen to "Built for War" in the player below (exclusive by Grammy.com).
As the fourteenth Megadeth record, "Super Collider" drops tomorrow (June 4) via frontman's Universal-powered label Tradecraft. Apart from the two latest songs, the album was also announced with the title track single and "Kingmaker."
