MEGADETH Mainman Reveals New Songtitle

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine was interviewed by Jose Mangin, program director for Sirius XM, on March 18, 2010 in Scranton, Pennsylvania. During the chat, Mustaine spoke about a recently recorded MEGADETH song which will be used in an as-yet-undisclosed project later this year. "That was a top-secret track that we haven't been able to announce where it's getting directed to," he said. "It's a song called 'Sudden Death', and appropriately so. And it's a pretty long song — it's not our usual three-to-four-minute length; it's more along the lines of... I think it's about five minutes long.

He continued, "We were approached to do a track for a specific purpose and we delivered it, and they said, 'Can you do more solos?' And I thought, 'Pfft, are you kidding?' That's like asking a guy, 'Do you wanna have some more sex?' So I went back in there and I went, 'Solo, solo, solo.' And I called Chris [Broderick, MEGADETH guitarist] back, and I said, 'C'mon back down here. Let's have some more fun.' And all you could hear was engines revving and brakes screeching out in front of the studio when he got there. You know, that's what we live for — is playing now."

Audio of Mustaine talking about "Sudden Death":

MEGADETH kicked off its "Rust In Peace 20th Anniversary Tour" on March 1 at the Knitting Factory in Spokane, Washington. Also appearing on the bill are TESTAMENT and EXODUS.

MEGADETH recently finished filming a video for the song "The Right To Go Insane" in South El Monte, California. According to bassist David Ellefson, the clip "has a very twisted and demented storyline. It was much different than what I thought it would be. It has no band footage at all. It's a very twisted and intriguing story."

"The Right To Go Insane" comes off MEGADETH's latest album, "Endgame", which was recorded at Vic's Garage, the band's brand new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California. The CD was helmed by Mustaine and British producer Andy Sneap (EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD).
