Dave Mustaine Of Megadeth

Dave Mustaine Confirms New Megadeth Album Title


Last week saw Megadeth vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine officially confirm the long-rumored title of the band’s forthcoming sixteenth studio album. During a video greeting purchased through the Cameo service, Mustaine stated the record will indeed be titled “The Sick, The Dying And The Dead“. A brief preview from a rough mixing session for the album’s title track could briefly be heard in that video as well. You can see that video now over at

A release date for the record has yet to be announced. The bass tracks for it however were recently re-recorded by a new mystery bassist currently thought to be Testament‘s Steve Di Giorgio. David Ellefson‘s previously recorded bass tracks for the album were scrapped following his firing from the band earlier this year.
