Megadeth Demoing 'Really Heavy' New Material
According to a recent Facebook post made by bassist David Ellefson of thrash metal band Megadeth is currently writing and demoing some brand new material for their next album; the follow-up to their 2013 release Super Collider. Above is a picture of Ellefson and Megadeth front man and founding member Dave Mustaine jamming out new riffs.
Ellefson says, "Dave and I are in the studio this week in California working up some of the new riffs. We're having fun, just throwing it down and keeping it chill. These are essentially writing demos at this point so just grinding out the tunes like a metal band should. More to come…."
Drummer Shawn Drover also confirmed through a recent Facebook post of his own saying that the band is working on new songs and also went on a little further to indicate that these songs will be much heavier than the previous album. He states:
"Spent this week in the studio with Dave tracking demo 'ideas' for the next record-Some really heavy riffs going on here and if I say it you know its true."
No doubt Megadeth is going back to making heavier material due to how the previous album which was more pop rock than thrash metal was not too well received. Fans of course will most likely be a bit skeptical about this, so whenever Megadeth is ready to show what they have cooked up the long time fans can decide for themselves as to whether they have been true to their word.
