Megadeth Asking Fans For Guest Singer Suggestions

Thrash titans are asking you who would you like to see appearing as a guest singer on their upcoming studio release.

Ultimate Guitar

Thrash titans Megadeth are currently working hard on a new studio release in the Vic's Garage studio in San Marco, California. After revealing that the album has entered the mixing stage, the band is now asking which guest vocalist would you like to hear and see working with Megadeth.

"Any ideas for a guest singer on a track? I have a few ideas, but wanna know what you think", stated the group via official Facebook page.

The record itself was recently announced as "dark, heavy and fast", so the guest vocalist should probably fit into this description. The fourteenth studio album will be produced by Johnny K, known for his previous work with bands such as Disturbed, Sevendust, Machine Head and Staind.

James Hetfield, Bruce Dickinson, Alice Cooper, Till Lindemann of Rammstein, Zakk Wylde and Alice Cooper are just several of the candidates fans have singled out. But what are your opinions? Who would you like to hear on a new Megadeth album? Would you like to see James Hetfield working with Mustaine again? Or perhaps his godfather Alice Cooper? Metal legend Bruce Dickinson? Or maybe Oderus Urungus from GWAR? Post your thoughts in the comments section below.

    it's gotta be a thrash singer, so Phil Anselmo, Joey Belladonna, Jame Hetfield, Tom Araya or Robb Flynn, Lemmy could also work
    I'm not sure if that would work out well, but it would still be cool to hear Lemmy on a Megadeth song \m/
    let's be serious... i mean, i would like to see that, but lets face it, it would be a total waste, hetfield has such a regular voice, Mustaine should get someone with a great voice, i would like to hear Kai Hansen from Gamma Ray in a megadeth song, or someone like Chuck Billy from testament
    A guest spot by Hetfield would help them sell a lot of copies of the album, or the MP3 song at least.
    How about Alice Cooper or Alice Cooper?
    Or Alice Cooper.....
    I would prefer Alice Cooper, tho
    john petrucci and Chris broderick could be interesting.
    Lil wayne
    Wayne Newton!!

    When I saw Till on this list, I thought about it, and it makes complete sense. He definitely needs to do some guess vocal work. I wouldn't mind seeing Bruce Dickinson on there (he probably will be since him and Dave are good friends). Of course the likes of Tom Araya and James Hetfield need to be on the list. They're probably the best 2 singers of the Big 4.

    I think Bruce Dickinson would be a very interesting choice, his vocals can easily fit on some thrash songs, just listen to "Be Quick Or Be Dead".
    Serj Tankian (SOD) or Ian Fraser Kilmister, though i guess he won't be able to keep up the pace due to his age (Motorhead)
    that chick singer from Benedictum. dont remember her name, or someone who contrasts but compliments Daves singing.
    Talking seriously, I'd suggest Soren Adamsen (ex-Artillery's vocalist). Though he had quit Artillery, I think he is still the one of the best thrash metal singer of today.
    Once again, by the time I got to the god damn comment box, I had been scrolling for so long, chasing the little ****er, that I no longer even remember what I wanted to say.
    Glen Danzig and Liam Gallagher. They could call the song "Why Don't All These Little Assholes Love Me?"
