Megadeth drummer Shawn Drover says fans may be surprised by an experimental drum passage on their new album "Super Collider."
He was talking to the "Metal Mayhem" show on WVOX Radio (via Blabbermouth) where he described how the new record dips into different flavors of sound to keep all their fans happy and engaged.
"There's always been twists and turns with certain tracks in Megadeth's career and there's definitely a couple on this record, too. Nothing too weird or anything like that but there's just some musical twists and turns," he said.
"There's one song on there that has some real left-field drumming in it. It's something that you wouldn't expect," said Drover. "The song starts off a certain and then it kind of kicks in and it gets more violent as it goes along. And it goes in just a lot of wacky drum fills and it was fun for me to do that."
If you're getting the impression that the album is going to be too experimental for your tastes, don't hesitate - Drover says you'll find something on the album to love, no matter what.
"I think it's got a bit for everybody, so I think the fans are really going to enjoy this record big time," he said. "You know, as soon as Dave plays guitar and steps up to the mic, it's always going to sound like Megadeth no matter what."
