has been talking with the Morning Call
's latest album "Super Collider
." While the record has divided opinion among Megadeth fans, Mustaine sees it as a distillation of the band’s career:
"I think 'Super Collider' is kind of like a really broad
[distillation] of what our whole catalog represents. There's aggressive stuff, there's thrashy stuff, there's kind of more of the heavy metal stuff. There are some of the more introspective lyrics. There are some simple lyrics and soon and so forth. I think that's what really makes the record refreshing is that it shows everything that we've done. It's almost like a biopic of our career. It's a pretty good slice of everything I've learned over the years."
Recently speaking to Lehigh Valley Live
, Mustaine also noted that his approach towards doing things isn't always crystal clear:
"I still don't what I'm doing but I know how I'm doing it. I always come back to the same stuff. I like playing the heavier stuff the most. Granted, I write songs on every record that have some radio appeal."
