Megadeth bassist Dave Ellefson was interviewed by Troy Bradley of the show "The Witching Hour" when the band hit Atlanta on this past summer's Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival Tour. During the conversation, Ellefson discusses the extremely fast recording sessions for the band's upcoming album TH1RT3EN, the whole history of the cover art to their recently reissued Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? (as well as the history of the band's Vic Rattlehead mascot, which we discussed here the other day), and his feelings upon returning to the band in 2010.

Here's the video:

TH1RT3EN will be in stores November 1, but you can pre-order it from iTunes (and get an exclusive bonus live version of "Head Crusher") right now!
