MetalItalia.com and RockNRollRadio.it conducted an interview with MEGADETH guitarist Chris Broderick prior to the band's June 5, 2010 concert in Milan, Italy. Watch the chat below.
A new MEGADETH track called "Sudden Death" will serve as the finger-busting finale to the forthcoming Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock game. The band's mainman, guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine, tells RollingStone.com the track is brutal, and "I'm sure some fans will think it's the greatest thing we've ever done. But other people will say it sucks. That's just the way of the world."
Unlike previous Guitar Hero titles, the upcoming Warriors of Rock features a story-based adventure mode, voiced by KISS' Gene Simmons. To advance through the game, players will have to tackle tricky tracks like BLACK SABBATH's "Children of the Grave", SLAYER's "Chemical Warfare" and THE CURE's "Fascination Street". But to beat the game's last stage boss, players will have to master MEGADETH's "Sudden Death".
"I thought it was a great idea for us," Mustaine tells RollingStone.com. "We've had experience with games in the past, and our songs have been in sports games and Grand Theft Auto, but we never really got into the Guitar Hero thing. When they talked to us about doing this, I never imagined it would be something this honorable."
"The Right To Go Insane", the new video from MEGADETH, was shot in South El Monte, California and directed by Bill Fishman, who also helmed MEGADETH's last video, "Head Crusher", the Grammy-nominated first single from the band's new CD, "Endgame".
As previously reported, the March 31 MEGADETH concert at the Palladium in Hollywood, California was filmed for a forthcoming DVD.
