Megadeth’s David Ellefson Releases Thunderous New Song ‘Hammer Comes Down’
More Life With Deth is the upcoming new memoir from Megadeth bassist David Ellefson, serving as the follow-up to My Life With Deth. This time, the memoir will be released with a companion album titled Sleeping Giants, and a new single off it called "Hammer Comes Down" has been released today.
The album will be compiled of a few new songs, featuring guest artists, F5 demos and unreleased material from several of Ellefson's projects. "Hammer Comes Down" features Eric AK on vocals, Mark Tremonti, former Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland and Sacred Reich guitarist Joey Radziwill on guitars and ex-Machine Head drummer Dave McClain.
Sleeping Giants and the book are expected to be in stores July 16. Listen to the song below.
Ellefson has also been busy working on Megadeth's new album and staying positive while Dave Mustaine undergoes treatment for his recent throat cancer diagnosis.
"Thoughts and prayers are always welcome. Dave has started his treatment. We've been in Nashville for the last almost month and a half working on the album, so we were sort of watching this all unfold before us," the bassist recently said, and the band remains optimistic.
