Megadeth: 'Th1rt3en' Is A Modern Classic'
Megadeth have heralded their new album "Th1rt3en" as a "modern classic" - even if they say so themselves. Speaking to the "Severe Auditory Trauma" show (via Rock AAA), bassist David Ellefson said it's the closest the band have sounded to their classic "Countdown To Extinction" and "Peace Sells..." albums for years. Ellefson says the entire album was written and recorded in a small 10-week window between a Big 4 show in India and another in Germany. "We knocked out over a dozen songs for the record which was one every five-days... Every song is really unique and kind of harking back to 'Peace Sells', 'Countdown To Extinction'". He continued: "'Head Crusher' is a brand new song from 'Endgame' yet there is a couple of the songs we worked on in our 'Youthanasia' days. That's kind of how it works in Megadeth. We'll write a riff or maybe start a composition but for whatever reason its time hasn't come yet so it doesn't get completed for a few years. In fact, the very first song Dave (Mustaine) ever showed me was a song called 'Megadeth' back in 1983 and it didn't end up on a Megadeth album until our third one when it was retitled 'Set The World On Fire'". Meanwhile, frontman Dave Mustaine has hinted in an interview (via Blabbermouth) at the possibility of more Big 4 shows.
