The evil genius manages to lure the girls into his Hell House, and when they wake up from being gassed, they find themselves trapped inside an unescapable room filled with a vicious variety of devices that can kill them as well as a variety of weapons that can be used on each other.

The rules are simple: advance through all three rooms and you are allowed to go free. The catch is, in order to make it to the next room, someone must die!

With a ticking clock, and the mastermind watching, the question becomes… are you willing to kill to stay alive?”

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine Says His Bandmates Send Their Songwriting Ideas To Management & Label First

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine has was recently interviewed by 101 WRIF and talked a bit about the band’s songwriting process. Interestingly, when asked if David Ellefson and Kiko Loureiro contribute to the creative process, he revealed that he has them send their ideas to their management and label first. He said the following about that:

“Yeah, everybody does—everybody has great ideas. The problem is there’s so many great ideas. So, for me, I learned a long time ago, instead of putting our friendship on the line and cause any problems between them and myself that when they submit songs and stuff, they just submit it to management and the label, and then, you know, if they like it… ‘Cause, see, it would suck—wouldn’t it?—if they had a great song and I heard it and I was busy during the day or I had something going on that was some kind of hectic bullshit and they played this great song for me and I didn’t hear it and it was gone forever. That would suck, wouldn’t it?”
