Megadeth have a new album coming out. We’ve known that for a while now, and even known the track listing. What we haven’t heard is any of it, until now. The band launched a countdown clock on Friday that’s leading up to something this coming Friday (2). As of today, if you go to the site, the countdown remains, but if you stick around for a few, you’ll hear some drums. Unfortunately, that’s all you’ll hear. Maybe as the week goes on, we’ll get to hear more of the song, with other parts being added. And while we don’t know which of the 15 songs on the album will be released first, a hint has been given via Amazon, which suggests that there will be a single called “Fatal Illusion” available as a Japanese import as of October 16th. Will that be the song we hear Chris Adler playing drums on at the countdown site? We’ll find out soon enough.
