Metal veterans Megadeth have officially finished the recording sessions of the forthcoming new album "Super Collider". In a recent post via his Twitter profile, frontman Dave Mustaine announced March 13 as the completion date of the new album recording along with some interesting facts regarding the release. The record itself is set for a June release via Mustaine's own record label Tradecraft, powered by Universal Music.

"More 13 weirdness... We finished the record on 31313. 13 of 14 songs used; song 13 left off. It was 13 years since we tracked 'Silent Scorn'," the singer/guitarist stated in his Twitter post.

In case you were wondering about the "Silent Scorn" reference, it addresses the horn player Bob Findley who will also appear on the "Super Collider", and was previously featured as a guest musician on "The World Needs A Hero" 13 years ago.

Therefore, an album is just a mixing stage away from being fully complete and set for an official release. With Johnny K. (Disturbed, Sevendust, Machine Head, Staind) at the helm of production, "Super Collider" will mark the 14th release in the group's catalogue, the first one not to feature a lineup change from the preceding record since 1997's "Cryptic Writings".

The band has recently also posted a new studio update, this time featuring footage from lead guitar recording sessions with Mustaine himself and guitarist Chris Broderick.

    The small snippets of riffs and vocals makes me kinda excited, it sounds pretty damn promising.
    That would be correct, it was released 12 years ago (save for a couple months), but Mustaine stated that Silent scorn was tracked 13 years ago.
    yes i think it will be an exceptional record maybe the best of this century
    I have much confidence that this album will be leaps and bounds better than Th1rte3n, which seemed a bit lacking after having been spoiled with United Abominations and Endgame.
    What has me stoked is the fact that there are no lineup changes from the last album which I really like that. It's been too long since we've had some consistency from this band.
