Today’s Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival interview is with Megadeth guitarist Chris Broderick, who joined the band nearly four years ago alongside original bassist David Ellefson (who we interviewed last year), Shawn Drover, and of course, Dave Mustaine. We spoke about the new album, TH1RT3EN, who he would love to see play on the 2012 Gigantour, his thoughts on the Jag Panzer break up and the Nevermore situation, and his thoughts of horror.

Okay guys, here’s a question for you: What would you want the most for your man cave? A big screen LCD TV? A life-size replica of Jason Voorhees? Well, in the MLB fan cave, apparently they needed to have Dave Mustaine behind a pane of glass ready to do a guitar solo at any given notice. Check out the very chuckle-worthy clip after the jump.
Dave Mustaine was recently interviewed on the Texas radio station 97.1 The Eagle Rocks during the Rockstar Mayhem Festival circuit. On there, he admitted to some rather interesting news. News that might send metalheads into a frenzy. Apparently, Mustaine approached Metallica‘s James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich and brought up the possibility of a supergroup. The band would be rounded out by Megadeth bassist David Ellefson. Hetfield apparently said no, but Mustaine has said, “…but it’s still kind of out there in the air. I’m gonna keep hammering on him. It’s on my bucket list.”
Megadeth have made it official: TH1RT3EN, their 13th studio album, will be released on Nov. 1st! The new album features 13 blistering tracks from the thrash metal legends and will be the first album with bassist David Ellefson recorded since 2002′s Rude Awakening.
Twenty five years ago, a metal album came out that became a benchmark for all metal albums afterwards. It became the inspiration for an entire generation of up and coming kids who were rocking out in their parents’ garages: Megadeth’s Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying? In celebration of the 25th anniversary, the band has rereleased a remastered edition of the classic album and Bloody-Disgusting has a copy to give away. However, it’s not just any copy. Nope, we’ve got the limited edition box set that includes five discs, three LPs, and a whole lot more! Check out all the details after the jump!
Konami has released a trailer for their upcoming video game NeverDead that features a new song from metal band Megadeth, entitled, yup, you guessed it, Never Dead. The game apparently revolves around an immortal protagonist that, while unable to die, can be dismembered completely, causing the player to roll the hero’s head around picking up the severed limbs. It is slated for release later this year. Check out the trailer with the new Megadeth song after the jump.
Avenged Sevenfold have released a video for So Far Away off their latest album, Nightmare.

You can check out the emotional video after the jump.
After the success of their west coast date, the Big 4 (Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax) are taking their show to the Yankee Stadium on Sept. 14th. To build up the hype, and let’s be honest, there isn’t much they can do to hype up this show more than it already is, a trailer was released mixing shots from Yankee Stadium with live clips from the Big 4 bands.
Slayer guitarist Jeff Hanneman shocked and delighted audiences at this past weekend’s Big 4 show when he, unannounced, walked out on stage to join Slayer for two songs. Jeff has been in recovery ever since contracting necrotising faciitis, the infamous flesh-eating virus, and needing surgery to remove the infected flesh. Check out a picture of Jeff after the jump where you can see the scars on his arm from the operations.

Rockstar Energy Drink has announced the tour dates as well as this year’s line up for the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival. All the info is past the break and you all should be pretty excited with the line up this year. Who are you excited to see?
Metallica has announced the only American Big 4 tour date for 2011: April 23rd at the Empire Polo Club in Indilo, California (the same venue as Coachella). The Big 4 tour is Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax. Here are some comments from Metallica:
Motorhead is in many ways the runt of the Metallica/Megadeth/Anthrax litter. Though not thrash metal by any means, Motorhead still had the raw energy and attitude of aforementioned bands and was, at least back in the day, as recognizable a name. However, aside from a few big hits, they fell to the wayside as the rest of the pack went on to bigger and better things. But that doesn’t mean that Motorhead has lost any of its tenacity or drive to keep on keeping on. So with that, they have released their latest album, ‘The World Is Yours’. How does it fare? Check after the jump for all the details.
Bloody Disgusting has scored the exclusive album artwork premiere for DevilDriver’s upcoming album, ‘Beast’, which is slated for a release date of Feb. 21st, 2011.

Make sure to also check out our exclusive interview with singer Dez Fafara HERE.
German metal sensation Accept refuse to sign those AARP papers and will be doing a second headlining run in N. America starting April 9th, 2011.
