Megadeth have unfurled its sixteenth studio album, “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!”

 It is the first Megadeth album to feature drummer Dirk Verbeuren, the second with guitarist Kiko Loureiro.

During the album’s recording founding bassist David Ellefson was forced out of the band due to a sex scandal with his bass parts re-recorded by Testament’s Steve Di Giorgio.

Last week, Megadeth were presented plaques to commemorate the RIAA (Recording Industry Association of America) certification for platinum sales of ‘92’s “Symphony Of Destruction” and the gold status of ‘86’s “Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?” and ‘90’s “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due.”
