MEGADETH: First Sample Of New Music Available

MEGADETH's official fan club, MegaFanClub, has released the first video footage from Vic's Garage, the band's recently built recording studio in San Marcos, California where the group is completing the songwriting process for its new album, tentatively due sometime next year via Roadrunner Records. The December 20, 2008 clip includes footage of guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine and drummer Shawn Drover jamming out to a brand new song. (Note: You must a member of the MegaFanClub in order to view the video.)

MEGADETH's forthcoming LP will be the group's first with guitarist Chris Broderick, who replaced Glen Drover at the end of last year. The CD is once again being helmed by acclaimed British producer Andy "Undie" Sneap, who produced MEGADETH's last album, "United Abominations" (May 2007, Roadrunner Records).

In a recent online posting, Mustaine stated about the band's new material, "I am more excited about this new record than I was with 'United Abominations' or anything in the last several years. . . I am not saying that this is 'Rust In Peace 2'! But I can say that the five out of nine songs I have arranged, I like and love them all, and every one of the songs has one or more of the strong points of me as a guitarist being showcased instead of me writing songs for radio — radio that won't play us anyway. . . This is really going to be a record that will make a lot of people that thought we couldn't do it anymore sit up and take notice."
