Dave Mustaine confirms Megadeth album title, teases snippet of new music
In a(nother) new video on Cameo, the frontman confirms to a fan in their birthday message, “If you listen real closely, you can hear in the background – look over my shoulder, uh oh! – there’s the Pro Tools rig with the new album, doing a rough mix, and you’re getting to hear a little bit of it in the background for your birthday.
“This is the beginning of the song The Sick, The Dying And The Dead, which is our title-track,” he says.
Previously, Dave explained of this working title: “We may change that, because there’s some other titles, and I usually change the titles four or five times before I settle on anything.” Now, though, it looks as though Dave has properly “settled” – which is good, as it’s an awesome name.

Last June, Dave stated that the new Megadeth record ranked within the top five of the band’s career.
“I think this is probably in the top four records as far as towards the tip of the spear with our career and everything that we’re doing,” he said. “It’s up there with Countdown [To Extinction], Rust In Peace and probably Peace Sells. The other one I would say is Dystopia. So that would round up my top five.”
