For a heavy metal band that’s been around for nearly three decades, selling more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including 11 Grammy® nominations, scoring five consecutive platinum album; including 1992’s two-million-selling, 'Countdown to Extinction', Megadeth’s founder, leader and primal guitar-slinger and lyricist Dave Mustaine feels the best is yet to come.
Currently working in their studio in San Diego on their 14th studio album titled 'Super Collider', Mustaine, along with bassist Dave Ellefson, drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick, are looking forward to its release in June 2013.
With a newfound energy with the band, Mustaine is raring to go, preparing for his latest tour, marking the 20th anniversary of their best-selling Countdown to Extinction album. Mustaine added, “Shawn, Chris and David have all been feverishly contributing some great music and I believe we are doing our best work ever together in the studio right now!”
Mustaine formed Megadeth in Los Angeles in 1983, and with a string of five consecutive platinum and multi-platinum albums Megadeth became one of the biggest bands of the mid-’80s and ’90s, boasting such arena anthems as “Symphony of Destruction”, “Peace Sells, But Who’s Buying”, “Holy Wars”, and “Sweating Bullets”, along with the top singles in 1997/98 off Cryptic Writings, “Trust”, (No. 1 track) “Almost Honest”, “Use The Man” and “A Secret Place”.
