Megadeth’s upcoming album “The Sick, The Dying and The Dead” is one step closer to competition.
Frontman Dave Mustaine says he and his bandmates have finished laying down tracks for the group’s 16th studio album, and soon they’ll be “sending the album in for mixing.” In an Instagram post, Mustaine writes, “Final step. I can’t wait to play the new songs for you!”
Although Mustaine has confirmed that the tracks recorded by ousted bassist David Ellefson have been replaced, he hasn’t revealed who’s filled his shoes for the project.
Does Megadeth have such a squeaky clean image that keeping Ellefson would have affected the band’s popularity?
