megadeth2012Megadeth has officially completed recording its new album, Super Collider, for a June release via Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine‘s new label, Tradecraft, which is distributed by Universal Music Enterprises [UMe]. Mustaine sang the very last note on the album earlier yesterday [Wednesday, March 13) at his Vic’s Garage studio in San Marcos, california. The next step in the process is to finish mixing the album.

Commented Dave via Twitter: “More 13 weirdness… We finished the record on 31313. 13 of 14 songs used; song 13 left off. It was 13 years since we tracked ‘Silent Scorn’.” [Horn player Bob Findley played on the track Silent Scorn from Megadeth‘s 2001 CD, “The World Needs A Hero”, and is a featured guest on the song A House Divided on the new album.].

Super Collider is Megadeth‘s first release its recent split with Roadrunner Records.

With the recent acquisition of EMI, UMe now brings together Megadeth‘s classic, 14-year, seven-album Capitol catalog, which includes one multi-platinum release [’92’s Countdown To Extinction], four platinum records [’86’s Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? ; ’88’s So Far, So Good… So What?; ’90’s Rust in Peace; ’94’s Youthanasia], and one gold [’97’s Cryptic Writings]. In all, the band has scored five U.S. Top 10 albums [including 2007’s United Abominations and 2009’s Endgame] and two Top 5 releases, with 2011’s Th1rt3en debuting at No. 1 on the Billboard Hard Rock Albums chart.

Megadeth‘s latest album Th1rt3en has sold around 119,000 copies in the United States since its November 2011 release. The CD marked the recorded return of bassist David Ellefson who was part of the band’s classic lineup from 1983 to 2002. In a move that delighted the band’s legion of diehards, Ellefson returned to performing live with Megadeth in early 2010 and has remained a fixture on the stage ever since. This was the first time Ellefson has played on a Megadeth record since 2002′s Rude Awakening.
