Guitarist Chris Broderick and drummer Shawn Drover of metal titans Megadeth took some time to discuss the band's upcoming record "Super Collider," naming its diversity as what they like the most.
Prior to recent performance in Romania on May 22, the two sat down with Info Music and gave some personal thoughts on the entire album.
"I think it's awesome because it's so diverse," Broderick said. "I'm kind of tired of getting a CD where you fast forward from song to song and it sounds like the last song. And this particular CD, it's got stuff that has more of a rock vibe, all the way to something that has a very thrash vibe like 'Kingmaker.'"That's the kind of diversity I really like in a CD, and that's what I think fans would appreciate about this CD."
Drover fully agreed with the guitarist, adding, "Every Megadeth album sounds different, and this is no different than that. We have different kinds of metal songs, some are faster and heavier and some are a little more accessible."We're just trying to make the best songs we can. All records turn out different from the other one. But for me, it's a lot of great songs, so we're pretty happy about it," drummer concluded.
While discussing the special guest appearances on the record, Drover gave a clear confirmation that despite the rumors, country legend Willie Nelson will not be appearing on the album. He has however pointed out that he heard some of the material Disturbed frontman David Draiman recorded, adding that it "sounds really cool.""Dave saw Willie when he was in Texas and I guess the idea was brought up and nothing never came of it, but [it] would have been interesting."
Previously announced with title track single and "Kingmaker," "Super Collider" will be officially unleashed on June 4 via frontman Dave Mustaine's own Universal-powered record label Tradecraft. The group has recently also filmed a video for the title track which is set to drop sometime in the near future.
