Dave Mustaine reveals the name of the new Megadeth album

Megadeth singer and guitarist Dave Mustaine said in a video made on his Cameo (Website that lets users hire celebrities to record brief, personalized video messages) account to a fan that the new album of the band will be called “The Sick, The Dying And The Dead”.


Dave Mustaine revealed the name of the new Megadeth album saying:

“If you listen real closely, you can hear in the background… There’s the Pro Tools rig with the new album, doing a rough mix. And you’re getting to hear a little bit of it in the background… This is the beginning of the song ‘The Sick, The Dying And The Dead’, which is our title track.”

Mustaine previously floated “The Sick, The Dying And The Dead” as a “tentative” title for the new Megadeth disc during a January 2021 Zoom chat with fans.

No David Ellefson basslines

Megadeth leader Dave Mustaine said in an interview with Gimme Radio that David Ellefson‘s bass parts will be removed from the upcoming album of the band and will be recorded by the replacement musician that was not announced yet. Ellefson was involved in a sex scandal recently and was fired from the band.

Dave Mustaine said about removing bass parts recorded by David Ellefson of Megadeth’s upcoming album: “I just want to thank you for all the kinds words and support as we get ready for this next tour and continue to hunt for a new bass player. We are making progress. The record’s being completed, and we’re going to have someone coming in in a couple of weeks to replace the bass tracks that we had.”

“(It) should be relatively quick,” according to Mustaine that said that a “stellar” musician. “Hopefully this will be an ongoing thing after the recording. Or we will find someone prior to the recording that will be our permanent guy going forward.”
