Megadeth Aim For Classic Sound On New Album

(RockAAA) Megadeth bassist David Ellefson reckons the band's new album is the closest the thrashers have come to recapturing the sound of their classic 'Countdown To Extinction' and 'Peace Sells' albums.

The band returned to form with 'Endgame' in 2009 which Ellefson hails as a catalyst for a return to the metal forefront but he believes 'TH1RT3EN,' due for a November release, picks up where they left off.

Speaking to Tim Shaw of the 'Severe Auditory Trauma' metal show Ellefson said: "It (TH1RT3EN) came together really quickly as we did it in between the Big Four show in India and we went right into the studio and had to have it done before the next Big Four show which was in Germany. So we basically had this 10-week window where we had to arrange, finish any writing and basically record a whole album.
