Dave Mustaine On New Megadeth Album: “We’re Trying To Keep With That Real Heavy Thing”

During an interview with Kerrang!, Dave Mustaine offered a bit of an update on the new Megadeth album. According to him, the band are trying to keep things “heavy.”

Mustaine said the following:

“We’re trying to keep with that real heavy thing. ‘Dystopia‘ was more of us doing what makes us feel good; there’s a lot of super heavy, fast drumming at the end of some songs. My son was in here two days ago and when we were doing ‘Dystopia‘ he was listening to the songs and making comments, and the ones he commented on were the ones that got the best response.

When he came over this time, we were working on a song that has the tentative title ‘The Dogs Of Chernobyl‘, and the intro riff has kind of a Hungarian guitar part, kind of like something Mercyful Fate did on Into The Coven. The song comes in super powerful and strong, and my son goes ‘Oh god that’s heavy as hell!’ and I just started laughing.”
