Megadeth Thirteen subsection tinkering[edit]


Thirteen has been compared by band members to any of several previous Megadeth albums. Mustaine had at first noted that the new album was turning out to be "more like Endgame."[1] However in an interview in June 2011, Mustaine declared that the album was "Different, a hundred percent different, unlike anything we've ever done before because the guitar sounds are different, it sounds really super-modern." He went on to compare the sound to "really old classic [Black] Sabbath and with a little bit of a modern edge of Queens of the Stone Age kind of thing."[2]

When Ellefson was asked if Thirteen could be compared to any previous Megadeth album, Ellefson said that the album "kind of fits in around the Countdown to Extinction album" but noted that it would depend on how the album is mixed. [3]

When being interviewed by Amy Kelly of Ultimate Guitar, guitarist Chris Broderick compared some parts of the album specifically to Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?, Rust in Peace, or Countdown to Extinction, but also stated "I've been likening it to a very diverse CD. It's not one of those ones that you'll put it on and every song sounds like the last one. It's got everything from anthems to more radio friendly stuff to hard-hitting thrash and some cool, dark-sounding stuff."[4] In another interview in late August of 2011, Broderick commented "[...] But I’ve always likened TH1RT3EN to almost like a cut in time from each CD of the past Megadeth discography so you know it’s got stuff that hearkens back to Peace Sells all the way up to Countdown to Extinction to Endgame [...]". He also repeated comments apparently made by Mustaine that the sound was "un-Megadeth" and elaborated by saying "it’s a sound Megadeth has never done before the guitars are completely different sounding."

Studio album by Megadeth
Released Late 2011
Recorded 2011 at Vic's Garage[6]
Genre Heavy metal, thrash metal
Label Roadrunner
Producer Johnny K
Megadeth chronology

13[7] is the thirteenth studio album by the American heavy metal band Megadeth. A release date has yet to be announced but is expected in the late-2011[8] or early-2012 timeframe. This is the third and final album due in the band's current contract with Roadrunner Records. It is the first Megadeth studio album since The World Needs a Hero in 2001 to feature bass guitarist and founding member Dave Ellefson.

As per contractual requirements,[9] twelve songs are expected to appear on the album[10] with one of those being a bonus track for the Japanese market.[2]

Writing and recording[edit]

Being interviewed in July 2010 about the success of Megadeth's previous release, Endgame, drummer Shawn Drover revealed that the band had already started "talking about [a new album]" and explained that although the band was in "tour mode", there were a "couple of ideas" that the band was starting to work on.[11] In a later interview regarding songs that the band is recording for its 13th effort, Mustaine elaborated that the material is a mix of songs Mustaine had written earlier in his career, and some are new compositions written for the album.[9]

On November 17, 2010, Dave Mustaine made an official announcement via the band's Megadeth Cyber Army Chat Room that Megadeth would soon start recording for their thirteenth studio album, and recording would be done in in Vic's Garage (Megadeth's studio). Of the upcoming effort, Mustaine said; "So, right now I have Ken Eisennagel, you may remember him from the last two records doing engineering for all of the pre-production phases of Megadeth records? Well, he is here [Megadeth’s studio - Vic's Garage] going over all of the new Megadeth stuff that I am working on… believe it or not we have five songs almost finished for the new Megs record already!"[12] No title or release date was announced.

In an interview after a show in Auckland, New Zealand, Mustaine noted that the upcoming record is the last one on his current contract with Roadrunner Records. At the same time, he mentioned that Roadrunner was trying to give the band a "huge new deal", but expressed frustration with the label, saying that "The treatment's been terrible over the years, and I just don't want it." Mustaine stated that he would "rather retire than continue to play like that." Mustaine then stated that in the future, the band might release albums independently instead. Nevertheless, Mustaine exclaimed that the band's new record would be "great" and that the songs were "really good", with Mustaine wanting to do his utmost to live up to his contractual obligations, in spite of the alleged treatment by the label.[13][14]

Speaking to Ultimate Guitar in December of 2010, bassist Dave Ellefson said that "There's some ideas that we're now starting to individually compose", but clarified that the band would not be hitting the studio until 2011. However, Ellefson called those song ideas "very heavy", speculated that the songs would be influenced by the band's (then) recent live performances of the entire Rust in Peace album, and said Megadeth fans would not be disappointed by the new record.[6]

On January 31, 2011, Mustaine posted on Twitter: "In the studio today working on guitar parts! Love you all. DSM", suggesting that the recording process for the follow-up to Endgame has begun.[15] It was revealed during an online chat with Megadeth's fan club, that five new songs for the next album were completed. Mustaine also noted that the new album is turning out to be "more like Endgame."[1] However in an interview in June 2011, Mustaine declared that the album was "Different, a hundred percent different, unlike anything we've ever done before because the guitar sounds are different, it sounds really super-modern." He went on to compare the sound to "really old classic [Black] Sabbath and with a little bit of a modern edge of Queens of the Stone Age kind of thing."[2]

The album is being produced by American rock producer "Johnny K" Karkazis. The band picked Johnny K rather than Andy Sneap (who produced Megadeth's previous two albums) due to scheduling conflicts.[16] Drover noted that working with producer Johnny K was a "blast" and he "shares the same vision [as the band]" for the new album.[17]

On June 3, 2011, it was announced that a new song, "Never Dead", was to be included in a trailer for the video game NeverDead,[18] marking the third time in five years the band contributed a new song towards promoting a video game ("Gears of War" in 2006 to promote Gears of War[19] and "Sudden Death" in 2010 for inclusion in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock[20] being the other two).

In a short video interview from Vic's Garage, Dave Ellefson revealed that the band is "finishing up the [new] record", and that the band "might even come close to [their] deadline".[8]

In a July 2011 interview with, Ellefson was asked about the new album. Ellefson said that the album was ready to be mixed. When asked it if could be compared to any previous Megadeth album, Ellefson said that the album "kind of fits in around the Countdown to Extinction album" but noted that it would depend on how the album is mixed. Ellefson also announced that the band has been kicking around several ideas for an album title and that several of them may be announced, but no release date is yet planned.[3]

The album artwork was designed by John Lorenzi, who contributed to the covers on Megadeth's two previous albums, Endgame and United Abominations.[21] On July 7, 2011, Mustaine announced via twitter that he had chosen a title and album cover for the new album and would reveal then "asap".[15]

Odd occurances during recording[edit]

According to Dave Mustaine, the band have encountered numerous mishaps and odd occurrences. In an interview with Terrorizer magazine, Mustaine, taking note of the connection to the unlucky number 13, explained "This is our 13th studio record, and we've already had a bunch of weird things happen. Car problems, stuff disappearing, a guy who worked for me that was the most white-laced guy you could imagine falling out on drugs and disappearing...but this one's got me excited!"[22] In addition, Dave Mustaine announced on Twitter that producer Johnny K was "suddenly struck ill", and the band had ceased recording for the time being.[23] However, the band resumed recording a few days later, with K having apparently recovered.[10]

Release and promotion[edit]

Release dates have yet to be announced for the album, but will likely be in late 2011 or early 2012.


Mustaine had noted that thirteen songs have been or are being written in the sessions for the album, though only twelve are contracted for the album.[2] It is unclear if "Sudden Death" will be included on the album; in an interview, Mustaine noted that the band's label said they could include the song on the album, but Mustaine did not further clarify whether or not "Sudden Death" will appear on this release.[2] In another interview, Mustaine re-stated that the record label will allow him to include "Sudden Death" on the forthcoming release.[24]

"Never Dead" was written for inclusion on NeverDead, a third-person action/fantasy game.[18][25]

On July 4, 2011 in Hamburg Germany, Megadeth debuted a new song entitled "Public Enemy No. 1"[26]

Background and production[edit]

Guitarist Chris Poland and drummer Gar Samuelson had been kicked out of the band following the conclusion of the Peace Sells tour for disruptive behavior, including Poland's habit of pawning band equipment to pay for drugs.[28] Samuelson was immediately replaced by his drum tech, Chuck Behler.[29] A new guitarist, however, would take a while to emerge. At first, the band hired guitarist Jay Reynolds from the band Malice.[30] It was discovered however, that Reynolds was up to the task of recording, and was subsequently replaced by his guitar teacher, Jeff Young. Mustaine has since stated his regret for the way he handled Reynolds' firing.[31]

Work on the album started while Reynolds was in the band, but continued after the induction of Young. To mix the album, the label had turned to Paul Lani, who previously had remixed the band's prior album, Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?.[32] Mustaine was initially skeptical, but later became very irate with the Lani's "eccentricities" and the way he was handling things. To record the album, Lani had relocated the band to Bearsville Studios, near Woodstock, New York, ostensibly for the purpose of inspiration.[33] The final straw occurred one morning when Mustaine, who had just awoke and made coffee, noticed Lani outside in his underwear feeding apples to deer. Mustaine flew back to Los Angeles later that day, and fired Lani. Michael Wagener was brought in as a replacement. Mustaine has since criticized Wagener's "pedestrian" mixing efforts on the album, in particular, the "muddy feel".[34]

Mustaine was able to get Sex Pistols guitarist Steve Jones to perform guitar parts on "Anarchy in the UK".[35]

Super Collider is the upcoming fourteenth studio album by American heavy metal band Megadeth. It is due to be released in June (X), 2013. Super Collider will be Megadeth's first album to be released on Mustaine's own label, Tradecraft,[38] after the band's split with Roadrunner Records. Additionally, Super Collider is the first Megadeth album since Cryptic Writings, released in 1997, not to feature a lineup change from the preceding album.

"Song A" was the album's lead single, being released about a month before the album. Two other singles were also released from Super Collider, "Song B" and "Song C". "Song A" and "Song B" both received Music videos, with "Song B" being nominated for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance at the 687th annual Grammy Awards, Megadeth's twelfth such nomination, although it lost to GrammyWinningBand's "GrammyWinningRock/MetalSong".

The album debuted at number (X) on the Billboard 200, and managed to sell about 41,500 copies in the United States in its first week. The album charted similarly in several other countries such as the UK and Argentina. Upon release, the album was met with mostly, though not unanimous, positive reaction from critics. Super Collider currently carries a score of 74/100 on Metacritic.

Background, writing and recording[edit]

On July 17, 2012, a tweet from the Twitter account for Megadeth mascot Vic Rattlehead inferred that frontman Dave Mustaine had begun writing lyrics for a followup album to 2011's Thirteen.[39] In addition, in an interview with NME, Mustaine had revealed the existence of new material, commenting: "Some of it's a little darker, some of it's a little faster."[40]

Later in July, in an interview with activist and radio host Alex Jones, Mustaine announced that the band was preparing to start work on a new studio album. He optimistically suggested a tentative release for the spring of 2013. Mustaine also clarified that the band was looking for a new label to release the album. However, Mustaine did not identify which label might be chosen.[41] The band's previous contract with Roadrunner Records was only for three albums, expiring after the release of the band's previous studio effort, Thirteen.[42]

At a press conference in Manila, Philippines during the east Asian leg of the band's world tour to promote Thirteen, Mustaine commented that the lyrical concepts on the upcoming album are mostly about life experiences, and things that Mustaine or other band members have seen on the news or have read about in newspapers. While Mustaine did not divulge anything more specific, he did claim that the new album would be "totally heavy".[43] In addition, it was announced that "Johnny K" Karkazis, who produced the band's previous record, will return as co-producer for the album. As of late August 2012, pre-production of the album was underway.[44]

On October 27, Mustaine revealed that the band was planning to enter the studio to begin tracking the new record in the first week of November 2012,[45] before leaving the studio for the American leg of the Countdown to Extinction 20th anniversary tour. The next day, Mustaine announced via the official Vic Rattlehead Twitter page that he had chosen a title and cover art for the new album,[46] though neither was revealed at that time. As with Megadeth's previous studio effort, Thirteen, work on the album was done at "Vic's Garage", Megadeth's own studio in San Marcos, California.[47]

Being interviewed by Atlantic City Insiders before a show at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, Shawn Drover stated that recording for the new album wouldn't begin until early 2013. Drover also suggested that the album might be released in the summer of 2013, rather than Mustaine's initial projection of a late-spring release. At the time, Drover said the band was in the process of composing material and determining what riffs to use on the record.[48] On December 24, 2012, Mustaine announced that three new songs were "tracked and almost done".[49]

During January 2013, several short video clips were uploaded to the band's official YouTube channel showing band members in the studio playing and recording.[50][51][52][53] Later that month, in an interview with Full Metal Jackie at NAMM 2013, Mustaine announced that the band had finished recording 11 of 13 songs that the band plans to give to the label. Additionally, he confirmed that the band was signed to a new label, but declined to reveal which label at that time.[54] Several days later, on February 1, Mustaine announced via twitter that the mixing process had begun.

On February 12, 2013, it was revealed that the album would be titled Super Collider and that the band is now signed to Dave Mustaine's own label, Tradecraft, which will be distributed by Universal.[38] About two weeks later,'s Shockwave podcast aired an interview with Mustaine in which he discussed about half a dozen of the album's songs, confirming several titles in the process. Mustaine stated also that the band was working on fourteen songs for the record.[55]

Release and promotion[edit]

The album is due to be released in June 2013.[38]

Additionally, Mustaine has announced that the band will play shows in the United Kingdom with Iron Maiden.[55]


According to Mustaine, lyrics on the album are based on "life experiences" and things that he and the rest of the band had seen in the news.[43]

On December 26, 2012, it was revealed that one of the new tracks was to be titled "Forget to Remember"[56]

Mustaine elaborated on the subject matter of several songs, noting that "Forget to Remember" was intentionally written in an ambiguous way so that it could be about either a person trying to forget about a relationship or someone who suffers from Alzheimer's disease and cannot remember. He also compared the concept behind the song to the film The Notebook. Mustaine also noted that while the title track drew some inspiration from particle colliders and the search for the "God particle", the lyrical meaning was a bit less scientific. "The Blackest Crow" was described as having a Southern influence, and will feature a slide guitar. "King Maker" was described as being about painkiller abuse and dependency.[55]


Confirmed titles include:

  • "Super Collider"
  • "Forget to Remember"
  • "Dance in the Rain"
  • "The Blackest Crow"
  • "Burn"
  • "King Maker"
