  • Megadeth, Bleeding Through and ex-Machine Head Members Team Up for New Song
    POSTED 8 Jan 2020

    The Permanent Decay - Phil Demmel + Dave Ellefson

    It appears as though a new metal collaborative track has surfaced online, combining the talents of founding Megadeth member David EllefsonBleeding Through vocalist Brandan Schieppati and two former members of Machine Head, Phil Demmel and Dave McClain!

    The song is titled 'The Permanent Decay', and has carries a raw metalcore sound which harkens back to the early-mid 2000's. According to Demmel, the song was originally written in late 2016 for Machine Head's record Catharsis, but was left out of the final product.

    Check it out below, then keep scrolling for the members' statements on the collaboration:

     Phil Demmel, whose wife plays in Bleeding Through, had this to say on the team-up:

    “I had some tracks I had written and submitted for a previous band, that were never used, and I really liked them. Dave McClain and I had worked some of them up, and I kept thinking of who would be perfect to sing on it. My wife plays in Bleeding Through with Brandan, he ended up writing all the vocals, and singing on it, and it came out killer. Ellefson and I had been talking at NAMM last year about doing something together, so when this came up, it was the perfect opportunity to do that as well. We don’t know if we’re a band, we don’t know what we’re doing, other than that we all played on this song, and that we dig it. No one knows what the future holds.”

    Meanwhile Dave Ellefson says he jumped on the chance to branch out:

    “About a year ago when we were doing Metal Allegiance at the Anaheim House of Blues, I mentioned to Phil that we should collaborate on something together. And as the year went by, he contacted me back in October about a track, and he sent it over to me, I loved it.

    It was fun to work with Brandan, who is so respected in his genre, I always love playing with innovators, and in this case, I’ve had a great experience and friendship playing with Phil, and to be able to branch out and play with Brandan, and to be back playing with Dave McClain who played on ‘Hammer Comes Down‘ on my ‘Sleeping Giants‘ album, was really kinda reuniting the family in a way, but at the same time stepping out into some new turf, and a new sound, for me, that we kinda touched on on ‘Sleeping Giants‘ as well.

    I love to branch out and work with a new cast of people, and dive into different styles and genres of metal, and that’s really what this was all about.”

     We'd love to hear more from these guys in the future! What do you think?
