Dave Mustaine has revealed in a new interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station that MEGADETH recently recorded a cover of a JUDAS PRIEST song “for an Amazon project that they asked us to do.” Regarding how he and his bandmates approached the recording of the track, the MEGADETH leader said: “We went and listened to the song and charted out the performance. And going into that kind of micromanaging of the song, that minutiae production, we started to see a lot of things in the song where it seemed like there was no guide for the song. So we did everything the way that we do our recordings. And I believe it got a little more straightforward with the riffing and everything.”
A few years ago, Mustaine picked JUDAS PRIEST‘s “Sad Wings Of Destiny” as one of the albums that changed his life. He said: “When it comes to classic heavy metal, JUDAS PRIEST‘s ‘Sad Wings Of Destiny’ is definitely one of the all-time great opuses.
