Megadeth main man Dave Mustaine has been talking about his relationship with Metallica and making musical decisions since finding Christianity.
According to Blabbermouth, he has been forced to re-consider the subject matter of some songs.
"It's what the subject matter's about. I've been struggling with that. For example, 'Anarchy In The U.K.' is a song I really don't like playing because it starts off and says 'I am an Antichrist'. Well, I'm not an antichrist. Not only am I not it, I don't want to be it. I won't even be one of them."
"And as far as 'The Conjuring'... it actually has the components of a hex in it and when I wrote the song it was cool and it was vogue to be into black magic and the dark side and stuff like that - so it was really cool to have lines from a hex in it. But looking back now - being a dad, being a responsible person, being a musician who has influenced a lot of lives very positively - I look at it and think, 'I don't know if I would play that live'".
Mustaine also talked about his friendship with Metallica's Lars Ulrich who wrote liner notes for Mustaine's "Peace Sells" re-issue.
"I was really touched. See, it just goes to show you that the relationship that Lars and I really have had over the years was private, and people really did not know what it was about."
