Guesting on The Robbcast Podcast, Megadeth bassist and very longtime HardRadio friend DAVID ELLEFSON discussed the band's next album, which is currently a work in progress. he also talks about coffee, bass, his book and Bassstory tour, as well as time away from Megadeth. Looking back on the band's early days, Ellefson says "Megadeth started with us being in a room, and it was like this freakin' demonic possession of the music. It just drew you in... lip-curling... 'F**k, this is heavy. This is f**king scary, this is so heavy. Oh my God. This feels so wrong, it's right. This is just shit from another dimension.' And that experience, we all have that in our bands. Whatever that is, where we're connected; it moves the room."
