MEGADETH Performs At Six Flags New England: Setlist Revealed

MEGADETH played a short concert at the "Gears of War - Match Made In Hell" event on Tuesday (Oct. 31) at Six Flags New England, located in Springfield, Massachusetts. "Gears of War" and Xbox were both sponsors of the Gigantour this year, and MEGADETH has written a song entitled "Gears of War", which is slated to appear on the band's new album, "United Abominations". MEGADETH's setlist was as follows:

01. Devil's Island
02. Gears of War
03. Take No Prisoners
04. Washington Is Next
05. Holy Wars

According to one MEGADETH fan who attended the show, it was announced at the event that "United Abominations" will be released on March 20, 2007 via Roadrunner Records.

As previously reported, MEGADETH has tapped British producer Andy Sneap (NEVERMORE, MACHINE HEAD, ARCH ENEMY, CRADLE OF FILTH) to mix "United Abominations".

"United Abominations" will include a cover of LED ZEPPELIN's "Out on the Tiles", which MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has previously described as one of the CD's highlights. "It could be the best song," he said. "I think it rocks!"

"United Abominations" was recorded under the watchful eye of Mustaine and co-producer Jeff Balding. The initial studio sessions were filmed by director Michael Sarna (ANTHRAX, OBITUARY) and are available at to fan-club members. Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "United Abominations" and "Washington Is Next" (video).

MEGADETH's last CD, "The System Has Failed", has sold more than 180,000 copies since its September 2004 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The group, who were most recently signed to Sanctuary Records, were joined by bassist James Lomenzo (ex-BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, WHITE LION) in February following the departure of James MacDonough (ex-ICED EARTH).
