Megadeth have just released the latest track from their forthcoming album, Super Collider. Super Collider will be the bands second studio album with original bassist and founding member, David Ellefson. The record will also be the first on Mustaine’s new label, Tradecraft which is in an imprint on Universal Records and will be released June 4th. The song which is entitled “King Maker,” runs at about four minutes.
Musically, “King Maker” is very reminiscent of old school Megadeth circa Countdown to Extinction, but it also has a modern feel and sounds like it could go on the band’s 2008 release, Endgame. I particularly enjoyed Mustaine’s vocals throughout the track as he delivers verse after verse with his signature snarl. Ellefson’s bass sounds tight and hold Chris Broderick and Mustaine’s riffs together sonically. Shawn Drover’s drums also sound tight especially the double bass which he implements subtly and with masterful ease.
