Members of MEGADETH's official fan club, MegaFanClub, are now able to view a six-minute video featuring the band's British producer Andy "Undie" Sneap (NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, EXODUS) describing the process of mixing the new MEGADETH track "Headcrusher" at his studio in Derbyshire, U.K. Watch Andy work at the mixing console and listen to "Headcrusher" from MEGADETH's forthcoming album, set to be released in September via Roadrunner Records.
Says Sneap: "It's certainly old-school MEGADETH — that's what I like."
MEGADETH's twelfth studio album was recorded at the band's own Vic's Garage studio in San Marcos, California.
Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Nothing Left To Lose But My Mind", "The Hardest Part of Letting Go... Is Saying Goodbye", "Bite The Hand That Feeds", "1320", "How The Story Ends", "This Day We Fight" and "Endgame".
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 recently stated about the band's new CD, "It is fast, it is heavy, there is singing, yelling, speaking, and guest voices (maybe not singing — more like in 'Captive Honor'), the soloing is insane." He added, "We have some great song concepts, like 'Nothing Left To Lose' is a song about having been wiped out, like so many Americans, from the recession and potential depression years of 2000, or 'Bite The Hand That Feeds', which is a song about the greed of the fiduciary leaders of the financial world and how they just didn't care about the responsibility they had to the public. There are also songs like '1320', a song about nitro fuel funny cars (something I enjoy), 'How The Story Ends' and 'This Day We Fight', both inspired by warrior creed from the great Sun Tzu with the use of drums and flags in ancient war, and an impassioned plea from Aragorn to his loyal fighters in 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, respectively. I also have some bizarre songs, like 'Headcrusher', which is about the medieval torture device, and 'Endgame', which is about a bill that ex-President George W. Bush signed into law that gave him the power to put American citizens in concentration camps that are actually called 'detention centers' here in the United States, and a favorite lyric of mine on this record about the North Hollywood bank robbery of 1997 (or 1998)."
