Megadeth mainman Dave Mustaine says that the band’s upcoming fifteenth album, “Dystopia”, has the “excitement” that was present during the recording sessions for Megadeth‘s classic sophomore LP, “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?”
“Dystopia” will be released on January 22, 2016. The follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider” marks the recording debut of Megadeth‘s new lineup, which includes Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with Angra, and Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler.
Speaking to Australia’s Heavy magazine, Mustaine stated about “Dystopia”: “I’m so happy with it, brother. It reminds me of when we recorded ‘Peace Sells…’ because it has that excitement. There are some songs on there that are melodic; I think that when you learn how to play heavy metal and bring melody to it then that’s a huge accomplishment. Most guys, when they play metal, they’ve got a really fast right hand but their left hand isn’t really that melodic. Once you’ve found the secret on how to write melody with metal, well, then you’ve got it. This new lineup has a really cool, honest and organic feel to it.”
