After nearly three decades, selling more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning 11 Grammy nominations and scoring five consecutive platinum albums, Megadeth founder Dave Mustaine premieres Megadeth’s 14th studio album "Super Collider" tomorrow.
Dave describes “Super Collider" as more about the metaphoric climax from having a good time with other people, which is comparable to those atoms colliding with one another, and the orgasmic explosion which comes after it.
Tracks on the album include “Built for War” inspired by Dave's martial arts lessons, “Off the Edge,” a song about a world gone mad, shares the album with tales about teenage pregnancy in “Beginning of Sorrow,” drug addiction in “Kingmaker”, a declining economy in “Dance in the Rain”, an arsonist in “Burn!”, betrayal in “Don’t Turn Your Back on a Friend” and even his mother-in-law battles with Alzheimer’s in “The Blackest Crow” and “Forget to Remember”.
The "Super Collider" title comes from the world’s largest and highest energy particle accelerator which allows physicists to smash atoms in the hope of discovering the origins of the Big Bang Theory and is pictured on the album cover.
As usual for a Heavy Metal dude Dave is a pretty deep thinker.
