news heavy metal dave mustaine megadeth judas priest
During Megadeth’s performance at Spain’s Barcelona Rock Fest this past Saturday (July 2), frontman Dave Mustaine stopped the show to blast Judas Priest’s crew, who were setting up for Priest’s performance on the next stage. The festival is set up with two main stages side by side, allowing bands to perform one after the other throughout the day. Watch video from YouTube user “metalreporterjuso” below (head to the 09:16 mark).
“We’ll wait till he’s done checking his guitar over there,” Mustaine says in the video. He then walks over to the side of the stage, where he can see Priest’s crew, and offers the member in question his middle finger, to cheers from the audience. Returning to his microphone, Mustaine adds, “The last night of the tour, we went all the way to the last fucking night, and then some pussy over on the stage next to us has to start playing while we’re playing. How fucking pathetic, amateur piece of shit you are.” A few seconds later, Dave says, “Can we proceed now?… Fucking cunt.”
Spain’s Metal Journal reported (translated from Spanish using Google Translate): “Megadeth put their great thrash metal card on the table until Dave Mustaine got really pissed off because Judas Priest’s sound check bothered him. Then his particular character shone again after uttering a good string of insults. The concert was stopped for a few minutes that became eternal.”

Megadeth will cap a summer of global touring with the release of their 16th studio album, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! via UMe on September 2.
Featuring twelve new tracks, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! will be released on CD, vinyl, and cassette, as well as digitally through all online partners and can be pre-ordered/pre-saved here. There will also be a limited deluxe edition 2LP, 12-track album pressed on 180g black vinyl, housed in a numbered gatefold jacket with a 12×24 lyrics/credits insert, a lenticular vinyl lithograph and a bonus 7″ featuring “We’ll Be Back” and the unreleased b-side “The Conjuring” (Live).’The limited deluxe edition can only be purchased via Megadeth’s official online store, through Sound Of Vinyl, and uDiscover, and can be pre-ordered here.
The first song to be released from The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! is the ferocious and quintessentially Megadeth track, “We’ll Be Back” which is accompanied by the world premiere of “We’ll Be Back: Chapter I”, an epic, action-packed short film chronicling the origins of Megadeth’s mascot, Vic Rattlehead. Produced by Dave Mustaine, “We’ll Be Back: Chapter I” is a soldier’s tale of bravery, personal sacrifice, and the will to survive. It is the first instalment of a trilogy of videos to be released in conjunction with the release of the new album, The Sick, The Dying… and The Dead! Watch the short film “We’ll Be Back: Chapter I”, below.
The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! consolidates a furious return to form that began with the Grammy Award winning Dystopia, while pushing forward musically and marking Mustaine’s recent triumph over throat cancer. Reuniting visionary Megadeth leader and sonic architect Dave Mustaine with co-producer Chris Rakestraw (Danzig, Parkway Drive), who together helmed 2016’s Dystopia, the album was recorded at Mustaine’s home studio in Nashville, Tennessee, with guitarist Kiko Loureiro and drummer Dirk Verbeuren. Bassist Steve DiGiorgio temporarily stepped in to record the album. With the kick off of Megadeth’s recent tour, Megadeth-alumni James LoMenzo rejoined the Megadeth family as permanent bass player.
Dave Mustaine enthuses: “For the first time in a long time, everything that we needed on this record is right in its place. I can’t wait for the public to get hold of this!”
Featuring some of Mustaine’s strongest songwriting while also incorporating writing from the rest of the band, The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! brings together everything that’s exhilarating and distinctive about Megadeth. From the blistering throwback fury of “Night Stalkers” (featuring icon Ice-T) and first single “We’ll Be Back”, to the more mid-tempo and melodic “Soldier On!”, and the very personal title track, with its enthralling twists and turns.
The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead! melds the ultra-frenetic riffing, fiercely intricate solos, and adventurous spirit the quartet are known for, all laced with signature virtuosity and precision and Mustaine’s singular sardonic snarl. This album combines all the crushing musical motifs that have made Megadeth both repeat metal disruptors and revered genre flagbearers.
