David Ellefson: Megadeth are the “greatest thrash band in the history of the world”

Metal Hammer

David Ellefson has credited Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine as being the brain behind thrash metal, while stating that the band are “the greatest thrash band in the history of the world”. 

The bassist made these bold claims in a new interview with Chris Akin of The Classic Metal Show, when asked what his new project with Sons Of Apollo vocalist Jeff Scott Soto, titled Ellefson-Sono, will sound like. “I look at it like this,” he replied. “When people come to me, they go, ‘Oh, dude. It’s thrash,’ and, ‘It’s heavy,’ it’s, like, I’m already in the greatest thrash band in the history of the world, so I don’t need to do thrash anywhere else. I do that in Megadeth. I play with the guy who invented the genre.”
