Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine treated fans to a snippet of a new song “Life In Hell” taken from the band’s upcoming album. Mustaine previewed the song in a Cameo video for a fan named Gabe.
In the Cameo clip, Mustaine wishes Gabe a Merry Christmas before telling him, “I will play you something that’s been recorded already and is special. How would you like to hear a little bit of the new album? This is song two from Side One. It’s called ‘Life in Hell’.”
“There you go. A little special surprise for you, buddy,” Mustaine continues. “So I think that makes you the first person in the outside world — outside of the studio and the band and my family — that’s heard any music from the new record.”
Hear the preview below.
While we don’t have many details about Megadeth’s upcoming album, Mustaine has mentioned that it is slated to be titled The Sick, The Dying, and The Dead. This album will be the first without longtime bassist David Ellefson, who was fired from the band earlier this year after an “embarrassing” video surfaced of him in a compromising virtual encounter with a young woman.
