Dave Mustaine wants to form another Metallica

It’s been my a dream of mine to see Dave join Metallica on stage, and I kinda lived that dream when I attended the Big Four Sofia show and they all played ‘Am I Evil’ together for the first time. Dave seems to want to take that a notch further:

I’ve talked to Lars and James about me and David [Ellefson] doing a supergroup record with Lars and James. Well, James never said ‘no,’ but it’s still kind of out there in the air. I’m gonna keep hammering on him. It’s on my bucket list.

Really? That sounds to me like Metallica all over again. Now, a few thoughts on the matter:

1. Supergroups never work properly. The chemistry of the musicians is way more important than the individual talent or fame, so putting the best musicians in a room together will not guarantee success. The whole concept is flawed to begin with. The only thing separating this would-be supergroup from others is the fact that they did play together before, but it’s still a shot in the dark.

2. There’s a reason this didn’t work the first time. Three big egos clashing. They have quite the history, would they really be compatible now, with all the extra baggage?

3. Wouldn’t it be a bit hypocritical if James would start a side project after forcing Jason not to make one himself?

Don’t get me wrong, I’d pay good money to see this ‘group’ live, but something about the whole process seems like it will just fail, mostly on a personal level, but probably on a professional one as well. I’ll be the first to listen to their songs if they do pull it together though.

5 albums to rock your weekend

Picture this: It’s a Saturday night, you’re all alone eating cold pizza, watching crappy television. Everyone else is out having a good night, and you’re home alone crying and using the tears as lubricant to masturbate with. Life couldn’t get any worse, right?

Wrong, you could be me. The picture above is of what is commonly known as a ‘female’. I’ve heard of them before, although I have yet to see or speak to one. But enough about that. If you’ve got nothing to do on this Saturday evening, why not join me as I list five perfect Metal albums that should brighten up your day.

So what are you waiting for? Make the jump in front of a car. I know I will soon.


Shawn Drover loves his new album

If you didn’t realize by now, musicians love hyping up their upcoming albums, and things are no different with Shawn Drover of Megadeth. It’s not like he’s biased or anything, but apparently the album is ‘still metal’ and sounds ‘awesome.’

Guys, by the way, we’re gonna write some articles this week, and they will be awesome. I mean, honestly, they’re fucking brilliant. Metal and literally brilliance.

Watch the interview above and then stay tuned for more amazing writing from us. Kings!


New Megadeth song leaks!

A new song from Megadeth‘s upcoming album, TH1RT3EN, has leaked. Dose of Metal, of course, has it exclusively.

It’s actually pretty awesome, a very happy-go-lucky song… The lyrics are a bit redundant, the vocals are a bit high-pitched and there’s no guitar solo, but overall it’s the quintessential Megadeth song.

You can listen to it right here:

Spoiler: You got Nyan Cat Roll’d! Hey, give me a break, it’s Saturday and I’m bored.


Peace sells… But only 2,000 people are buying!

The numbers are in! The 25th Anniversary Reissue of Megadeth‘s classic album Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying? has underperformed. Only 1,800 copies were sold in the first week and no, Lars Ulrich’s liner notes didn’t help.

Frankly, today album sales are down, anyway, so I don’t know how bad Megadeth really did. I mean, some bands don’t sell albums at all, so who expects reissues to bring in the big numbers?

I’m not a big fan of reissues, really. The same album, just more expensive. You have to REALLY like that one album to buy its reissue, and as popular as Megadeth is, I’m sure just 1,800 diehard fans bought it, the rest of the metal community shrugged it off as just another milking strategy.

Oh and, if you’re wondering what Lars wrote, here it is:

“Whether you heard this record for the first time in 1986, or you hear this record for the first time today or tomorrow, Peace Sells is a great heavy metal album. Nothing more, nothing less. It has stood the test of time. And will continue to do so.

“But who’s buying?” — in-fucking-deed.
