Megadeth - Endgame (9-15-2009)

A Forum Thread for GameBanana

New Megadeth album!

Endgame is the upcoming twelfth studio album by American heavy metal band Megadeth, set to be released on Roadrunner Records in September 2009. It will be the first album featuring guitarist Chris Broderick, following Glen Drover's departure in 2008. Head Crusher, off the new album

Background: Members of Megadeth's official fan club, MegaFanClub, are now able to view a six-minute video featuring the band's British producer Andy Sneap describing the process of mixing the new Megadeth track "Head Crusher" at his studio in Derbyshire, UK. The album is set to be released in September via Roadrunner Records. Andy Sneap said, "It's certainly old-school Megadeth — that's what I like." Megadeth's twelfth studio album was recorded at the band's own Vic's Garage studio in San Marcos, California. Other song titles set to appear on the CD include "The Right To Go Insane", "The Hardest Part of Letting Go... Sealed With A Kiss", "Bite the Hand That Feeds", "1320", "How the Story Ends", "This Day We Fight" and "Endgame". Mustaine, Megadeth's permanent frontman, said about the album: "It is fast, it is heavy, there is singing, yelling, speaking, and guest voices (maybe not singing — more like in "Captive Honour"), the soloing is insane. We have some great song concepts, like 'Nothing Left to Lose' is a song about having been wiped out, like so many Americans, from the recession and potential depression years of 2000, or 'Bite the Hand That Feeds', which is a song about the greed of the fiduciary leaders of the financial world and how they just didn't care about the responsibility they had to the public. There are also songs like '1320', a song about nitro fuel funny cars (something I enjoy). He said the songs "How The Story Ends" and "This Day We Fight," were both inspired by "warrior creed from the great Sun Tzu with the use of drums and flags in ancient war, and an impassioned plea from Aragorn to his loyal fighters in Lord of the Rings trilogy, respectively." He adds "I also have some bizarre songs, like 'Head Crusher,' which is about the medieval torture device, and "Endgame," the title track, which is about a bill that ex-President George W. Bush signed into law that gave him the power to put American citizens in detention centers here in the United States, and a favorite lyric of mine on this record about the North Hollywood bank robbery of 1997." [2] Head Crusher was first played for the public at the Canadian Carnage Tour on June 24th 2009.
Production: On May 19, it was announced that Megadeth had finished recording the album, at that time untitled.[3] On May 26 2009, Chris Broderick posted the following on their official website : "As for the CD, I can’t believe the way the whole thing came together. It has a unique and original sound that I don’t think could have come together with any other group of people. From Dave’s snarling vocals, to James’ huge bass sound and Shawn’s dead accurate drumming it is just relentless, and with Andy producing, it focused the sound and direction of the CD. I feel lucky to be a part of it, for one thing it definitely did, was make me expand and play in different styles. I can’t wait for the release, and I hope all of you find something in it you like."[4] On May 27 2009, Dave Mustaine confirmed all 12 songs are complete and they are currently under mixing and mastering the record.[5] The album title was revealed to be "Endgame" June 18, named after the track of the same name. [6] On July 18th Dave Mustaine comfirmed via the Megadeth forums that a video for 'Head Crusher' will be shot on July 28th. [7] While mastering the album the song title "Nothing Left to Lose" was changed to "The Right to Go Insane". [8] The tracklisting on Megadeth.com was updated on August 8th, showing that a number of other song titles had also been altered, specifically shortening "Bite The Hand That Feeds" and "Bodies Left Behind". The artwork for the album was released on July 27th, exclusively for members of the Megadeth Fanclub Members, but was leaked shortly after.[9]
Tracklistings: 1. Dialectic Chaos 02:24 2. This Day We Fight! 03:31 3. 44 Minutes 04:37 4. 1,320 03:51 5. Bite The Hand That Feeds 04:01 6. Bodies Left Behind 03:34 7. Endgame 05:52 8.

    Awesome. Seems like a bunch of old time metal bands have been releasing some decent sounding stuff lately. From Alice in Chains, Megadeth, Motley Crue, etc etc.

    Just seems like they were going a bit too spazy on the guitar in that song. :( An album like United Abominations, or Youthanasia, would be awesome.

    Yeah, I know what you mean. They always have at least one song on an album like that though. So, the rest should be good! :D And seeing another United Abominations or Youthanasia would be great!

    Yeah, I forget which songs were like that on the past albums, but I do know what you mean. It's like, they unleash their hyper guitar rage on one song.

    Well, I'm glad they're doing this. I figured they would eventually, I was hearing rumors. It's just nice to see confirmation. I believe the album gets released around September of this year. Although, I'm sure it will get leaked before then.

    I knew it was coming out months ago, it was proven in an interview in Revolver Magazine. Although, it was SUPPOSEDLY, meant to come out before this, sometime around the time I first read about it. :(

    Headcrusher is a beast of a song. I got it when they put it up for free download. :D The intro and choruses are EPIC. I'm not a huge fan of Megadeth, but there are a few songs that I do love, mainly the obvious ones. Holy Wars, Peace Sells, Symphony of Destruction, Rattlehead, etc. But this song makes me think the new album will be amazinggggg.

    The new song isn't that awesome. They will never top Rust in Peace though United Abominations was awesome. Most ppl don't think so but it is my favorite Megadeth album after Rust in Peace and Peace Sells.

    Well Rust In Peace is considered one of the greatest thrash albums of all time, so it's going to take something epic to beat it. Holy Wars is just such a damn good opener. :D
