Megadeth fans have heard about the promise of a 2016 follow-up Dystopia for a few years now. Some clips from the studio emerged early in the writing and recording sessions and now Dave Mustaine has another treat for everyone ahead of the 2021 expiration – an audio clip of the new song “Life in Hell”.
Earlier this year, Mustaine announced that he had joined Cameo – a video service where celebrities can be paid to deliver personalized messages to a requested party – and he has successfully used it as a vessel for viral updates. and tactics on the new Megadeth record, titled The sick, the dying and the dead.
One lucky Cameo recipient – Gabe – got even more than expected as Mustaine opted to share a teaser clip from the upcoming album. “I think that makes you the first person in the outside world – outside of the studio, the band and my family – to have heard music from the new album,” the Megadeth frontman said after 12 seconds of “ Life in Hell “. .
And how does that sound? It’s not really fair to judge an unreleased album based on 12 seconds of music, but hey … it sounds like Megadeth! Mustaine has one of the most distinct styles of riffing in all of metal and there is no confusion between thrash legends and the rest.
Listen to a bit of “Life in Hell”, which Mustaine revealed second in the track listing, in the video below and search for The sick, the dying and the dead hopefully to be released in the spring of next year.
