Thrash titans Megadeth have officially revealed that the work on their forthcoming release, titled "Super Colider", is nearly finished, thanking the producers Johnny K. and Cameron Webb for their input.

"A big thanks to Johnny K. and Cameron Webb for excellence in helping me create "Super Collider"! We're almost done! I am getting excited!", the frontman Dave Mustaine stated via official Twitter page.

The band has recenlty also posted a new studio update featuring Mustaine and bassist Dave Ellefson working on guitar and bass parts. The album itself is set for a June release via Dave Mustaine's own label Tradecraft, powered by Universal.

The "TH1RT3EN" follow-up was recorded in Vic's Garage studio in San Marco, California. Marking the 14th release in the group's catalogue, "Super Colider" is the first Megadeth album since 1997's "Cryptic Writings" not to feature a lineup change from the preceding record. Although no specific release date has yet been announced, several Europe concert dates have already been confirmed for the end of May and the beginning of June.

    I'm actually starting to like Dave now he hasn't said anything stupid in a while.

    You mean UG hasn't instigated a Mustaine hate campaign in a while.

    He's definitely still a tit, but this website has a horrible tendency to misquote great sources. Not like Megadeath is coming out with a song called "Right Wing Agenda"either, so I guess I don't care.

    Reporting on idiotic statements = Instigating a hate campaign? Wow...
    Theophillis
    Yeah, me too. And the rat at the end of the video is kinda cute in a bug way too.

    Wow a new release without a lineup change! wasn't betting on that! On a serious note, if anything they have released over the last few years is to go by, this should be awesome! If only Metallica could keep up with Megadeth's album release cycle!

    I hope this album will be better than TH1RT3EN. It was a decent album, but I felt there was too much filler on it.
    crazysam23_Atax
    I agree with that. There were basically 4 or 5 songs that I just skip through because they are filler. I mean, I love songs like "Deadly Nightshade" and "Black Swan" and "Public Enemy No. 1". It's just that TH1RT3EN needed to cut out the filler tracks.

    I dont wanna be a grammar nazi or anything but isn't it spelled "Super Collider"?
    crazysam23_Atax
    I don't want to be a grammar nazi or anything, but it's actually grammatically incorrect to say "wanna" and forget to use an apostrophe in "don't".

    Nice, I thought thirteen was okay, endgame was great, but I've got a good feeling on this one
    afraidtoshoot
    Is "Super Colider" the name of the album or just an April Fools' prank? Oh wait....
    electricblue2
    Word on the street is that you used "Oh Wait..." in the wrong context
    Logan_B
    This was actually awesome, the repeated same comment and then everything that was said after..and now this comment above lol
    willofsteel
    i think this guy here is trying to tell you you used 'oh wait' in the wrong context

    You used the "Oh Wait..." in the wrong context.
    Doctor.Dolittle
    Holy crap. That's a lot of replies.
    kartikc11
    and people had the patience to dislike each and every one f those. I am one with those people
    iommi600
    Dunno why, but even when it's explainable (like the dude said, his internet froze) like this case, I laugh really hard when I see a chain of negative marks like this. Oh UG, what have you done to my head...
    Bazz22
    It makes me laugh, because it means some people took the time to go through and thumbs down all of them
    benjixoath
    what makes me laugh is when they downvote the spam comments like "buy best trainers cheap prices" it's like ...great you downvoted them i'm sure the spam bot is real sad about that
    loungeact88
    Haha. I love how some random ones in the middle got the most down votes. As if they were somehow more offensive than the ones above it.

    I was hoping for an album free of government criticisms and conspiracy theories, but then I heard "Courtesy of... Big Brother!" in one of the studio updates. Hopefully it will be back to a more endearing style, a la Peace Sells, rather than the eye roll-inducing (though still good) lyrics of something Washington is Next.
    DaFjory
    If there's a song about the dog roaming around the studio, it had better be called... MegaDog. \m/
    Rob Man
    This will be good. I am looking forward to cranking this alnum up in my car with the top down this coming summer. I haven't purchased a full-length album for a while, but Megadeth will always certainly be the exception. It's good toknow that there are a few awesome bands left still making music.

    I'm really hoping with the new label and the time they had to work on the album is gonna show. Endgame and 13 were okay but I'm hoping for something that could hold up to an album like youthanasia at least. Must buy for me ethier way
    thrashmetalhed
    man in my opinion Endgame is so much better than youthanasia, and most records since countdown for that matter, I love pretty much all of the records but endgame is in the top 6 for me.
    usedillusion93
    I love Endgame but IMO Youthanasia is waaaaay better. 'Elysian Fields' alone kills everything off Endgame.
    SHaun Steel
    Ohh dear Dave has a chinchilla wtf??? On topic. I'm looking forward to getting my grubby pawz on this one.
    anvil is god
    Thirteen sucked. Maybe this won't shit in my ears.
    Wisthler
    From what it sounds, it will be more heavy and with a couple of more complex riffs than the previous album. Also don't forget that Thirteen was recorded in like 2 or 4 months, all in a rush, to be able to acomplish the contract they had with Roadrunner Records.
    bevski208
    I've never owned a Megadeth album (to my shame). However, after watching these studio videos, I'm probably going to buy this. It looks and sounds awesome.
    TheGroundZero
    Buy Rust In Peace. That is all.
    dial-a-death
    And Peace Sells. But yeah, Rust In Peace is arguably the best thrash album of all time.
    Adriansmith209
    Ummm no Reign In Blood or Bonded By Blood is way better than anything megadeth has done...they arent even thrash metal really...they are metal but not thrash dont know why they are in the big four.
    RndyW0
    Endgame was also pretty damn awesome. Some might disagree with that and Rust In Peace is definitely better. Might as well get Rust In Peace though...actually, definitely get Rust In Peace
    saint_berzerker
    Hoping for another Rust in Peace. The ho-hum mush that's been out since then has been sub-par in my opinion. The lead playing is fine, just the songs...ugh.
    doomsdayscottie
    goddamn, there are celebrity marriages that last longer than it takes for Megadeth to write and record an album
    sickassfoo
    really UG? i am a huge megadeth fan but i am tired of you guys rephrasing everything that is on twitter
    ripper992
    That's kinda how things work these days, a lot of bands release their statements through facebook and twitter, and I don't see a problem with that
