In an interview with Metal Wani’s Jessie David, former Megadeth bassist David Ellefson spoke about his and Jeff Young’s collaborative project, Kings of Thrash.
Namely, when asked about the state of Kings of Thrash’s original music, David said (via Blabbermouth):
“As we look it now, they’re probably gonna be one-off singles rather than a full-length album. And that, of course, could change, depending on how it goes in the studio. The studio has a mind of its own. So we’ll know more in a couple of weeks.”
Later, when asked about whether the music will be akin to what the project name suggests, David replied with:
“It’s interesting. Because Jeff and I… He’s a Van Halen fan, as am I. He’s a Randy Rhoads fan, as am I. A lot of my writing, even in Megadeth, [from the] ‘So Far, So Good… So What!’ [album] into the ’90s, was a lot of my participation, some of this stuff kind of swings into those areas, which I like. I think it’s pretty cool. I think Jeff and I are creating something — we’re creating a new sound. It doesn’t have to be four songs of blistering assault. It can be musical.
“It’s interesting connecting with Jeff all these years later, ’cause he’s had his own experiences musically and in life; I’ve had mine,” he continued. “And now we intersect all these years later. It’s like a family reunion — it’s, like, ‘Tell me about your life. Where have you been? What have you done? Who have you seen?’ So I think that’s the musical intersection that we’re having as well right now.”
