DAVE MUSTAINE On New MEGADETH Album: It Ain't 'Rust In Peace 2'

MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine has posted the following message in the "Forums" section nof the band's official web site:

"This is the penultimate day in the studio, and I have been very secretive about where we are/were/are going to be regarding this recording because I knew I would want to invite some of you and that eventually word would get back to the boards about the songs.

"Having said that, I wasn't sniffing around the other guys posts and stuff because I have my hands full with the creation of the next MEGADETH record. I found out that Glen, Shawn, and James have all been keeping you in the loop. But you know me; I wanted to share this time with you in some way, other than text and the thought came to have Michael Sarna [video director] come over and film the entire process. I met Michael and he agreed, and we are hopefully going to release something surrounding the making of '****** ************'.

"Now, I had Michael send three brief clips over for the fanclubbers, and plan on doing the same with any snippets of myself, before we leave here.

"I am back at the place where I was writing 100% MEGADETH riffs for myself and not a label, a bandmate, or for radio anymore.

"I am not going to say what it sounds like, because that's like explaining an orgasm to a virgin, or trying to tell a blind person that the Mona Lisa really is an ugly woman by the time you stand in line 6 hours to see her at the Louvre. And to be blunt, I don't want to deal with anyone saying, 'Dave said, 'it's ['Rust in Peace 2'],' because it ain't!

"Now for something completely different: some flesh for you little hungries!

"This record will come out hopefully before Gigantour 2 and at least by the end of this year.

"We have dates on the horizon, starting around August or September, with a possible festival appearance, and some out of North American Gigantouring at the end of the year.

"Shawn did record on some of John Bonham's old drums and the union is complete between MEGADETH and LED ZEPPELIN.

"I choose this studio so that I would be out of my environment and focused, but haven't really played a thing.

"This is lead guitarist David Gilmour of PINK FLOYD's previous home, who also considered using the name MEGADEATH.

"The house and studio is beautiful yes, but also supposedly haunted, and I have fallen three times here, and can't tell you how, or why I fell, I just did. And I never fall down!

"There is a headstone in the basement of all places.

"So, that is it for now. I will be leaving for the airport Wednesday and may see some of you on my way home. And like I said, G2 info coming very soon!"
