Megadeth Posts New Album Track-By-Track

Musicradar.com has posted a track-by-track breakdown by David Ellefson of Megadeth about the band's upcoming album "Th1rt3en," which will be released through Roadrunner Records on October 31st in Europe and November 1st in North America. You can check out an excerpt from the breakdown below.

Sudden Death: This is a track that was being worked on when I rejoined the band. I came in on a Friday, I played my part on a Saturday, and on Monday we put out the press release that I was back in Megadeth. So this song represents a real homecoming for me.

Musically, I wanted to combine a New Wave Of British Heavy Metal and a thrash style in my bass playing. There’s some great rhythmic work going on, particularly in the intro, and the riff, especially towards the end, gives me a chance to move up an octave and create tension underneath the guitars. All by itself, it’s a very exciting song. But when I think about what it represents, it’s deep on an emotional level.

Big 4 Dominate Yankee Stadium

Never in my life have I been so eager to make the 3½ hour drive from Boston to Manhattan. And as a lifelong Red Sox fan, Yankee Stadium is not a place I like. But to catch one of just two Big 4 shows in the U.S., I would have worn a Yankees jersey if I had to. Well maybe that’s going a little too far.

Me and two comrades in metal piled into my Toyota Matrix at 8 a.m. Wednesday and sped toward what we knew was going to be heavy metal nirvana. We checked into our hotel, grabbed a quick bite and hopped the D train from mid-town up to the Bronx where we were greeted by a glorious scene: a sea of black T-shirt clad warriors filing toward metal mecca. Thousands unfortunately missed Anthrax as they were stuck outside the security gates in massive lines that moved at a snail’s pace.

Too bad because the native New Yorkers set it off proper.

“It’s a beautiful day for metal,” Anthrax vocalist Joey Belladonna boomed, welcoming the crowd to the historic day. “I can’t believe we made it into this building. They never let metal in here.” Well they sure did this day. More...
