Megadeth Finish Recording Sessions for New Album ‘Super Collider’
June is going to be a massive month for metal! Not only will Black Sabbath be unleashing their new album, ’13,’ but Megadeth are also set to reveal their 14th studio effort, ‘Super Collider.’ And just like Sabbath recently laid down the final tracks for their next album, Megadeth just announced to the world that recording for ‘Super Collider’ is completed!
Megadeth went straight to their Facebook page shortly after the final touches for ‘Super Collider’ were put to tape in Vic’s Garage, with the band revealing that frontman Dave Mustaine sang the last note for the record on March 13. ‘Super Collider’ will now be mixed, mastered and prepped for a June release.
Frontman Dave Mustaine is well-known for his controversial theories, but in an interesting recognition of patterns, the frontman noticed some intriguing coincidences regarding ‘Super Collider’ and its completion. The thrash legend posts on Twitter:
More 13 weirdness…we finished the record on 31313. 13 of 14 songs used; song 13 left off. It was 13 years since we tracked Silent Scorn.

It’s a conspiracy! Just kidding … but those numbers do align in a pretty spectacular way, especially due to the fact that Megadeth’s 13th studio album boasts the title ‘TH1RT3EN,’ and as mentioned earlier, Black Sabbath will release the album ’13’ in the same month as ‘Super Collider.’ Also, the significance of ‘Silent Scorn’ revolves around horn player Bob Findlay and his contribution to the track. Thirteen years after tracking ‘Silent Scorn,’ Findlay returned to work with Megadeth once again for the new song ‘A House Divided,’ which will be housed within ‘Super Collider.’
‘Super Collider’ will be the first Megadeth release put out on Dave Mustaine’s new label, Tradecraft, with an assist from Universal Music. “We have worked with some great people over the years, and it is amazing to see so many of them on the Universal team for our new record, ‘Super Collider,’” says Mustaine. “If Megadeth being here isn’t satiating enough, having Tradecraft as my own label is going to be really amazing for metal bands around the world.”
Keep your ears open for new Megadeth material and get ready for the release of ‘Super Collider’ this June!
