Megadeth Completes Recording New Album
0
On January 7, Megadeth commenced the recording process for its twelfth studio album at the band's own Vic's Garage studio in San Marcos, California. The CD is once again being helmed by acclaimed British producer Andy "Undie" Sneap, who produced Megadeth's last album, "United Abominations" (May 2007, Roadrunner Records). Tentatively due in September via Roadrunner, Megadeth's forthcoming LP will be the group's first with guitarist Chris Broderick, who replaced Glen Drover at the end of 2007. Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine has issued the following studio update: "I'm at the studio right now, Vic's Garage, and we are done! We're just right now finishing the last couple of notes on the new record, and Andy getting ready to pack his bags and head up to Los Angeles tomorrow to get ready to fly back home on Thursday. Man, this has been a long, grueling, enduring process but it's been so worth it, and I'm so excited. I'm more excited about this record then I've been in any record since back in the 1980s. I would say, probably since, well definitely since 'Rust In Peace' there's nothing that's excited me this much maybe 'Countdown' ['To Extinction'], but this is just absolutely insane." Listen to Dave's entire audio message at TheLiveLine.com or call Dave on his TheLiveLine number at (866) 597-6342. Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    Shhhiiittt. I cant wait until september. I NEED IT NOW. The thing i love about dave is that hes so involved with his fans, on the internet and such. Id love to meet him in person. Seems really down to earth.

    I'd love for Megadeth to fatten up their sound. Dave's guitar is always too tinny for my liking, compared to the sound of other metal bands. Can't wait for this, Megadeth have been consistent over the years. They keep doing their own thing.

    I love Megadeth, but every new album I kinda hope they'll go back to the sound on Rust In Peace and Countdown To Extinction. I don't expect them to become hardcore thrash again, but their thrashier stuff is superior to their melodic stuff. Even so, they haven't released a bad album yet, except Risk, and I have high hopes. United Abominations was great.

    Cool, I hope it comes out on my birthday which is in sept. That would be the best gift ever!!!!

    Quite frankly, United Abominations far exceeded my expectations. When I first heard Sleepwalker, it was my first experience hearing the new album, and at first I was like "WTF?! NO!!" but then the heavy palm muted Bb started and I was like "YES!! DAVE IS BACK!!" This album had better be that good, if not better.

    You mean Nevermore? One of the best metal bands making music today? Come on man, try to keep up... (Speaking of Nevermore, also stoked for The Obsidian Conspiracy. Hard to believe This Godless Endeavor was four years ago!) September can't come soon enough, I'm pumped to hear some insane lead work. Loomis + Broderick was a deadly combo, hopefully Mustaine + Broderick will be just as good, if not better.

    Sadly, it won't debut at no.1 on the Billboard 200. Why? Mainly since the Billboard staff: 1. Hasn't had a metal band debut there for years 2. They're mainly biased towards the "bullshit" genres of music. ex. Rap, Hip Hop, Modern R&B, etc... 3. They're *****s! I can't wait until this album comes out! UA got stale after a while, but is still a kickass album.

    Death Magnetic debuted at #1, I'm am almost positive, but I might be wrong.

    Sweet, I'm expecting some insane guitar now Brodericks in. (although Dave's awesome anyway) hope it's good!

    I can't wait for this album to come out. Seriously, it couldn't have come at a better time, I am currently mixed up in a Megadeth kick that I can't find my way out of, and I don't care! Let's hope it's released soon, as well. (We'll probably be waiting a while.)

    tie. Metallica with Burton Mustaine combo= best band ever, too bad they took out all the good and now metallica is just "one of those metal bands".

    Let's hope it turns out better than Chinese Democracy ..... but I am excited for this, should be sick

    i hope its better than united abominations. UA was just an okay album, not terrible, but very far from rust in peace

    I'm quite excited about this. Chris is a fantastic guitarist, and Dave will hopefully write some memorable songs.

    I have faith that Chris Broderick will kick unreal amounts of ass.

True ...but I would say Mustaine is waaaaay ahead of Hetfield when it comes to guitar playing ... Definitely, remember Dave was originally a lead player, but I still prefer James' voice to Dave's
    maybe James's OLD voice, but his new stuff isnt doin it for me. Thats just me though, and i would imagine it would be hard to keep the same singing voice for 20 years!

    I can't wait to see what Broderick pulls out of his ass for some soloing.

    Dave sure as hell wasn't the most talented member of Metallica.

Kinda sounded like a Nickelback album. I mean... ignore that comment. We don't want a shitstorm here.
    Lamb of God's Wrath debuted at number 2 a couple of months ago, only 2nd to Taylor Swift!! People are still definitely buying metal thats for sure!!

    I have one simple question, why the **** are people still talking about Metallica when this article is about Megadeth? I love both bands the same way. Another thing, stop bashing both bands! Who cares who's better or who's not? Either way, both bands have talented members. Megadeth has had the better hand at talented members recently. Basically, stop with the band bashing! Enjoy the fact that a kickass band is going to release an album this year.

    Except for the fact that James is a rhythm guitarist. And di anyone else notice that it said they finished recording in January and this is coming out in May?
