Megadeth: Listen To The New Song 'Headcrusher' Right Now
0
A brand new Megadeth track entitled "Headcrusher" is available for listening by calling Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine's number (866.597.6342) at TheLiveLine, a service he launched that enables musicians to connect to their audience over the phone. For more information, click here. "Headcrusher" comes off Megadeth's twelfth studio album, "Endgame", which is tentatively due in September through Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded at the band's brand new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California Vic's Garage which was named after the legendary and iconic Vic Rattlehead character. "Endgame" was helmed by Mustaine and acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (Exodus, Nevermore, Arch Enemy, Machine Head). Sneap also manned the boards for 2007's "United Abominations". Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Headcrusher", "1,320", "How The Story Ends" and "This Day We Fight!" According to a press release, "Endgame" "boasts the technicality, ferocity and snarl that's synonymous with Megadeth and Mustaine. It's a violent masterwork that represents Mustaine's best work in nearly two decades. In a musical world dominated by bands that make generic, blanket statements, 'Endgame' finds Mustaine, once again, making informed and substantial lyrical declarations about the state of the world we live in." Commented Mustaine: "Thematically, I've never been known to be a silent bystander in a world that needs our participation. As more is revealed about our former President's legacy, a little-known yet staggeringly frightening document which was signed into law, named 'Endgame', has been uncovered. The album 'Endgame' is the most energetic music offering I have penned in over a decade and is far more believable than knowing someone signed 'Endgame' the document into law. The album is also the perfect 'ass-kicking' music to listen to once you are done reading the aforementioned document!" In short, it's the Megadeth record that fans of classics like "So FarSo GoodSo What?" and "Rust In Peace" have been chomping at the bit for. "This new album is my proudest moment since the famous (or infamous) 'Rust in Peace' album," Mustaine added. "With this album, I am also very excited to be introducing my new lead guitarist, Chris Broderick, to the world. I have always felt lucky to have had top shredders in that position, but after touring with Chris in support of my last album, I couldn't wait to get into the studio and see what he could do." Thanks for the report to Blabbermouth.net.

    I really think that's going too far, can't he just let people to listen to it on the Megadeth website ? Cause instead now everybody's listening to a painfully bad version on youtube

BUT, let me get these facts straight. Douche Mustaine, who publicly and openly supported and voted for George W.

With tirelessly vigilant advocates like Mustaine, who needs a tyrant? Stick to the riffing, Dave; you are the best at that. But maybe outsource the intellectual heavy lifting. he OPENLY said the single reason he voted for Bush was because it was either Bush or Kerry, and Bush was the lesser of two evils. Dave has always said he awaits the day that Al Gore decides to run again so he can vote for him, and I perfectly understand that. Do you understand the concept of "not voting"?
    Do you understand the concept of "not voting means no complaining when you don't like a president's choices"? If he didn't vote, then Kerry got in and did something he was totally against, it would look hypocritical. Seeing as he did prefer one to the other, as opposed to them being equal, then his political views needed to be casted in a vote.

    DAVE MUSTAINE IS NOT THE FOUNDING FATHER OF THRASH METAL. HE DID NOT INVENT IT. He played it and made it popular, BUT HE DID NOT INVENT IT. (sorry, off topic, but just refering to what the site said).

    Because he always says he nailed Kirk's girlfriend.

    its not true. Megadeth said they would be touring with one of the bands theyve been having a feud with for many years. But that band turned out to be Slayer. Theyre playing four shows in Canadian Carnage.

    Valid points, all. I'm just saying Dave's track record as a "luminary" is a little tarnished by the fact that the evils he now decries were *already* on the record in '04 when he tossed a vote at King George. Maybe he'll do a solo album called, "Hoodwinked."
