Former Megadeth drummer Nick Menza has revealed in a recent interview that he is working on a brand new project called The Atomic Disintegrator. His new book entitled Nick Menza: Megalife will be released in both physical and digital form later this year.
Here is the excerpt from the interview regarding the new project:
“I’ve got another record in the can right now that I’m ready to put out — THE ATOMIC DISINTEGRATOR, it’s called; that’s the name of my new project. And it’s very heavy. I’m very pumped. And I’m kind of looking to see to get some other players in there — whether they’re known guys or unknown guys. ‘Cause right now it’s just me doing everything and I can’t very well tour on that by myself. But I can definitely release a couple of tracks and see where it goes from there. I’m trying to do a cartoon with it for TV and a comic book. And it’s really cool. The whole concept is THE ATOMIC DISINTEGRATOR… It’s got some governmental, conspiracy, alien stuff in it. It’s mostly about current stuff that’s going on in the world. And the music is very metal, but more contemporary style — like MESHUGGAH-type, OPETH, GOJIRA. It’s heavy.”
