Mindcrime's Tate credits Ellefson with Future sound
Mainman Geoff's chance meeting with Megadeth bassist helped inspire lead track from The Key
Geoff Tate has revealed that a chance meeting with Megadeth bassist David Ellefson helped inspire the Operation: Mindcrime track Re-Inventing The Future.
The former Queensryche singer’s new outfit released a video for the track from The Key last month, after previously confirming that Ellefson guests on the record.
Tate says in a video feature: “A few months back I was on a plane to South America and David was on the same flight. We sat next to each other for about 18 hours.
“I talked to him pretty extensively about the album I was working on – and he came up with some musical ideas that were really interesting to me.”
The Key will be the first part of a planned trilogy and is set for release on September 18 via Frontiers Music. Pre-orders are now being taken.
