13 Sums Up Megadeth

(Banana 101.5) Megadeth bassist David Ellefson recently gave a track by track breakdown of their new album 'TH1RT3EN', and says that the title track sums up the entire arc of the band.

Megadeth has had a 28-year long career. It would seem nearly impossible to encapsulate that entire experience into one song, but bassist David Ellefson says the album's closing track does just that. The recently returned bassist told Music Radar of the song '13′:

"It really epitomizes the story of Megadeth. Before starting the record, Johnny K had read Dave's autobiography, and I think that helped him understand Dave's psyche, as well as what Megadeth is all about. As the song was being developed musically, the words started to spill out onto the page, largely from Johnny's conversations with Dave. If you ever wanted to hear a song that summed up the arc of Megadeth as a band, '13′ is it." More from him here
