Kicking it for 30 years now, Megadeth continue to thrive with musical architect and band visionary Dave Mustaine at the helm, while the current line-up also features David “Junior” Ellefson on bass, new member Kiko Loureiro (formerly of Angra) on guitar, and drummer Chris Adler, who took time away from Lamb of God to record Dystopia.
Featuring 11 brand new tracks, Dystopia was recorded in Nashville, TN, and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Lamb of God, Gojira, Avenged Sevenfold). The result marks a true return to form, adding new blood and injecting a new burst of creative energy into the new album.
“There’s an excitement right now that I haven’t felt for a really long time,” exclaims Dave Mustaine.
For the inside scoop on Dystopia, MX2 Media hooked up Dave Mustaine with Full Metal Jackie for an in-depth conversation about the making of the record. Portions of this conversation ran as part of our syndicated program on radio stations the weekend of release.
