Megadeth announce 2015 Australian tour with Children of Bodom




Thrash metal legends and one of the "big four" of heavy metal MEGADETH are touring and they are bringing Finnish death metal lords Children Of Bodom along for the ride. With shows announced in Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne and Perth it going to be a tour with lots of metal signs in the air, while thrashing their long hair for their fans. Having sold over 50 million records worldwide, earning platinum certification in the US for five albums and receiving 11 Grammy nominations, Megadeth are legends of the heavy metal scene.

They were scheduled to tour as part of Soundwave 2014 but pulled out citing a disagreement with the promoter when they suddenly tweeted on Twitter "Due to circumstances beyond its control, unfortunately Megadeth has to cancel their Australian dates". Their last time in Australia was five long years ago, was a part of the No Sleep Til festival in December 2010.

This will be Megadeth’s first tour with their new lineup, featuring Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler and Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro. Megadeth as recently finished recording its fifteenth album in a Nashville studio. This new 13-track collection called Dystopia, is due for release on the 22nd of January 2016.

Dave Mustaine told Revolver magazine about Megadeth's forthcoming album: "There's a lot of riffing going on in there, that's for damn sure," he said. "There's a lot of solos, a lot of pounding drums and bass. I knew from the start that I wanted to go back to my roots, and I wanted to make a thrash record". The new album will also feature two cover versions with 'Melt The Ice Away' by Budgie and 'Foreign Policy', a song by Fear.

Have a sneak peak of 'Fatal Illusion' from the forthcoming album, Dystopia.

Having sold over 50 million records worldwide, earning platinum certification in the US for five albums and receiving 11 Grammy nominations, Megadeth are one of the true legends of heavy metal music. The band's mascot, Vic Rattlehead, regularly appears on album artwork and remains one of the most iconic images of modern metal music.
