MEGADETH Launches 'Megaman Radio'

11:09 AM / Posted by metallic sucker and moslem militan /

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has issued the following update:

"I am excited to tell you that we are starting a new thing here at . . . it's Megaman radio! Er, well, not exactly Megaman radio, more like Megaman has his own radio show and you can soon listen to it!!

"My first goal is to get 100,000 listeners a week, and I am going to do stuff that the other guys won't, and that is go into a studio and take your live calls on air and they will be repeated whenever the program repeats itself. I am also going to find rare stuff to play for you, and old interviews of mine as well. I even think I am going to be able to get Shawn Drover [MEGADETH drummer] to come on once in a while and give me the full-on thrash report. However, what I really want to do besides take you on a fantastic musical journey, is I want to talk to you, so much that we have to tape a new show each week. Got it? Good! We can do stuff like ask guitar questions, talk about music I like, what makes my excited about recording or touring, and anything or everything that comes to your minds. And I am sure play tracks off of 'Endgame', our new metal offering.

"The beauty is that I love to talk to you, and I think people will greatly enjoy hearing from us on my new radio show. Remember, this is not talk radio, so there is going to be music, and more music, until you have heard every song that I dig, that made me the player I am, or maybe the music I listen in the bedroom; who knows! But we are going to be doing it."

MEGADETH's brand new track entitled "Headcrusher" can be streamed below. The song comes off MEGADETH's twelfth studio album, "Endgame", which is due on September 15 through Roadrunner Records. The CD was recorded at the band's brand new, self-built studio in San Marcos, California — Vic's Garage — which was named after the legendary and iconic Vic Rattlehead character.

"Endgame" track listing:

01. Dialectic Chaos
02. This Day We Fight!
03. 44 Minutes
04. 1,320'
05. Bite The Hand That Feeds
06. Bodies Left Behind
07. Endgame
08. The Hardest Part Of Letting Go... Sealed With A Kiss
09. Headcrusher
10. How the Story Ends
11. Nothing Left To Lose

"Endgame" was helmed by Mustaine and acclaimed British producer Andy Sneap (EXODUS, NEVERMORE, ARCH ENEMY, MACHINE HEAD). Sneap also manned the boards for 2007's "United Abominations".

According to a press release, "Endgame" "boasts the technicality, ferocity and snarl that's synonymous with MEGADETH and Mustaine. It's a violent masterwork that represents Mustaine's best work in nearly two decades. In a musical world dominated by bands that make generic, blanket statements, 'Endgame' finds Mustaine, once again, making informed and substantial lyrical declarations about the state of the world we live in."

Commented Mustaine: "Thematically, I've never been known to be a silent bystander in a world that needs our participation. As more is revealed about our former President's legacy, a little-known yet staggeringly frightening document which was signed into law, named 'Endgame', has been uncovered. The album 'Endgame' is the most energetic music offering I have penned in over a decade and is far more believable than knowing someone signed 'Endgame' — the document — into law. The album is also the perfect 'ass-kicking' music to listen to once you are done reading the aforementioned document!"

He added, "This new album is my proudest moment since the famous (or infamous) 'Rust in Peace' album. With this album, I am also very excited to be introducing my new lead guitarist, Chris Broderick, to the world. I have always felt lucky to have had top shredders in that position, but after touring with Chris in support of my last album, I couldn't wait to get into the studio and see what he could do."
