According to Dave Mustaine, ENDGAME, the 12th studio album from Megadeth is a commentary on “the state of the world we live in.” With song titles like “Headcrusher,” “How the Story Ends” and “This Day We Fight,” Mustaine miiiight be living in a different world than the one we’re familiar with, but hey, whatever works.
Mustaine had this to say:
“Thematically, I’ve never been known to be a silent bystander in a world that needs our participation. As more is revealed about our former President’s legacy, a little-known yet staggeringly frightening document which was signed into law, named ‘ENDGAME,’ has been uncovered. The album ENDGAME is the most energetic music offering I have penned in over a decade and is far more believable than knowing someone signed ‘ENDGAME’ -the document- into law. The album is also the perfect ‘ass- kicking’ music to listen to once you are done reading the aforementioned document!”
No word on whether the album's liner notes will feature a reprint of the actual Endgame document for context, but we’re pretty sure they’ll contain at least one lushly painted skeleton.
