Released: September 2, 2022 | Universal Music Group The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!
MEGADETH’S explosive new album The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! features twelve new songs from the titans of thrash metal! Produced by Dave Mustaine and Chris Rakestraw, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed, Grammy® award-winning album Dystopia, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! brings together everything that’s exhilarating and distinctive about MEGADETH. From the blistering throwback fury of “Night Stalkers” (featuring Ice-T) and first single “We’ll Be Back,” to the more mid-tempo and melodic “Soldier On!” and the very personal title track, with its enthralling twists and turns.
The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! was recorded at Mustaine’s home studio in Nashville, Tennessee, with guitarist Kiko Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren. Bassist Steve DiGiorgio temporarily stepped in to record the album.
The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! melds the ultra-frenetic riffing, fiercely intricate solos, and adventurous spirit the quartet is known for, all laced with signature virtuosity and precision and Mustaine’s singular sardonic snarl. This album combines all the crushing musical motifs that have made MEGADETH both repeat metal disruptors and revered genre flagbearers.
