MEGADETH Streams New Song “Fatal Illusion”

Thursday, 1st October 2015

A brand-new MEGADETH song, “Fatal Illusion,” is available for streaming below.

Due as a digital single on October 16 via Universal, the track is set to appear on the band’s forthcoming fifteenth studio CD, which was recorded earlier in the year in Nashville, Tennesseee. The production duties on the follow-up to 2013’s “Super Collider” were handled by MEGADETH mainman Dave Mustaine and Toby Wright (ALICE IN CHAINS, KORN). The CD was mixed by Josh Wilbur, who has previously worked with LAMB OF GOD, ALL THAT REMAINS and GOJIRA.

MEGADETH last Friday (September 25) launched a countdown clock online at the band’s official web site that is scheduled to hit zero on Friday, October 2 at 1:00 p.m. EDT (10:00 a.m. PDT). While there are no hints whatsoever on what fans can expect when the countdown ends, it is widely believed that it will coincide with an announcement of the first details of the group’s upcoming album, which is rumored to be titled Dystopia.

n a July 27 online chat with members of MEGADETH’s official fan club, the Cyber Army, Mustaine revealed the track listing for the band’s forthcoming album. It is as follows:

1. Death From Within
2. Fatal Illusion
3. Conquer… Or Die!
4. Lying In State
5. Me Hate You
6. The Emperor’s New Clothes
7. Dystopia
8. Bullet To The Brain
9. Last Dying Wish
10. Post American World
11. Look Who’s Talking
12. The Threat Is Real
13. Poisonous Shadows
14. Melt The Ice Away (BUDGIE cover)
15. Foreign Policy (FEAR cover)

The new MEGADETH album will be the band’s first to feature LAMB OF GOD drummer Chris Adler and Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro, best known for his work with ANGRA. They were recruited earlier this year following the departures of drummer Shawn Drover and Chris Broderick, who have since launched a new project called ACT OF DEFIANCE.
