In an interview conducted today at the Sonisphere festival in Knebworth, England, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine revealed that the name of the group's forthcoming new studio album will be, "13." An excerpt from the interview reads as follows:

"It’s going to be called 13. I started playing guitar at 13 and this is our 13th record and I was born on the 13th. As soon as I said I was going to call it 13 I started noticing 13 everywhere. They never used to have 13th floors in hotels but now they have them again."

I got a little distracted in this video by how rude Mustaine came across. Disappointed with the album title too.

As much as most Megadeth records these days are 50% Filler, 50% Quality you really have to feel for Dave Ellefson. He's a true professional and to be in a band with Mustaine who whenever he opens his mouth almost always says something dumb, is pretty sad.

I personally stopped listening to Megadeth, but it would be interesting to hear their new sound.

In western culture,#13 is considered 'bad luck';but in eastern cultures its the opposite-a lot of serious 'thought' must have went into this title.I side w/post #3,their releases keep getting more&more redundant.3 men & a baby when it comes to creativity..
