Megadeth has been in writing mode for their 16th full-length album for a while now and while it had been suggested the band was targeting a 2019 release, David Ellefson recently said that probably won't happen. There's good news though as the thrash legends have officially begun pre-production for their new album.

"It begins," wrote Megadeth in a post on Twitter where they shared four photos from the wood-paneled room in a Tennessee home. The album will be the band's first since 2016's Dystopia, which picked up a 2017 Grammy award for Best Metal Performance for the title track. It was Megadeth's first and long-awaited victory at the prestigious awards show.

Ellefson also shared moments from the studio, posting a celebratory shot on Instagram alongside a clip of him and drummer Dirk Verbeuren cooking a vegan meal while listening to some death metal. The bassist posted an update on Megadeth's Facebook page as well, explaining the pre-production phase and that more updates will be coming as they progress.
