Megadeth became two just under a year ago when guitarist Chris Broderick and drummer Shawn Drover left the band. But with new members and an upcoming album, Mustaine’s thrash outfit are back.
‘Fatal Illusion’ is the first track with the new lineup, rounded out by new guitarist Kiko Loureiro and drummer Chris Adler, and it is very good indeed! It is reminscent of the earlier strains of Megadeth, perhaps even echoing the Rust In Peace-era though that may be wishful thinking!
You can listen below and make up your own mind. It’s being reported that Megadeth’s 15th studio album will be titled Dystopia and will be released on the 22nd of January next year.
