MEGADETH Have Completed Re-Recording Bass Parts For New Album

Dave Mustaine‘s Cameo has now become a source of breaking news! We reported earlier this week, that the Megadeth frontman raised the prices of his Cameos, likely due to high demand, and it looks like it happened again. The current price is $350, quite a departure from the original $150, but still a good deal. Also, Mustaine has no problem telling fans some inside info.

Blabbermouth reports that in a recent Cameo, Mustaine revealed that the bass parts for the new album, tentatively titled The Sick, the Dying and the Dead, are done

 “I hear you’re a big pretty fan of [the Megadeth song] ‘Fatal Illusion’ right now. That’s cool. Actually, we’ve got one song on the new album — it’s called ‘The Dogs of Chernobyl’ — which is very similar to ‘Fatal Illusion’ in aggression. So I hope you like that song when you get the new record. It won’t be long. It’s a matter of finishing the parts when I get home [to Tennessee from vacationing in Florida] today and tomorrow. Our bass parts are all done. And it won’t be long.”

Last month, on an episode of The Dave Mustaine Show on Gimme Radio, Mustaine revealed Megadeth has contracted a “stellar bass player” to come in and re-track bass for the record that they’re hoping “will be an ongoing thing after the recording.”

“I just wanna 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,” said Ellefson. “We are making progress. The record’s being completed, and we’re gonna have someone coming in in a couple of weeks to replace the bass tracks that we had. Which should be relatively quick because the person we’re talking to is a stellar bass player. And 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.”

Ellefson was fired earlier this year from Megadeth due to an ongoing sexual relationship with a fan that culminated in some less-than-stellar videos being posted online. Ellefson has since admitted to having a relationship with the fan and is currently in the process of filing revenge porn charges, alongside a defamation lawsuit, against the video leaker.
