Jackson Guitars have posted a video clip of Megadeth's David Ellefson in San Diego where he is working on bass overdubs for the band's new album.

In the video, which you can see below, Dave takes us through some of the bass guitars he's been using in the studio.

Dave Mustaine was asked in a recent interview with Pure Grain Audio how the new Megadeth album is sonically different to that of 2009s 'Endgame'?

"[It's] different, a hundred percent different, unlike anything we've ever done before because the guitar sounds are different; it sounds really super-modern," he said.

"If I was going to say it sounds like a particular band, I would say it sounds like really old classic Sabbath and with a little bit of a modern edge of Queens Of The Stone Age kind of thing.

"But then again, with the twists and turns of music that Megadeth has been famous for over the years, you never know how it'll turn out.



Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.


As well as shooting the band several times in England, this collection includes images from a session at the band's rehearsal room in Boston. Littered throughout is a mixture of live and off stage photos including a selection of photos taken at London's famous Marquee club when they were joined on stage by Jimmy Page.

This limited edition hardback book, presented in a flight case and printed on silk paper, is an opportunity to own a unique selection of photos, most of which have never seen the light of day before.

This unique item is presented in an aluminium flight case and will be published in late November. Earlybird subscribers who order by 31st October will have their name printed within a dedicated page in the book.
