Speaking to Metal Hammer yesterday, Dave Mustaine expressed his gratitude for the accolade:

“I am truly humbled to receive this award, and to be recognised by your peers for your accomplishments, is almost as gratifying as not being recognised by the police for your accomplices.”

Megadeth’s 15th studio album is out this year and the band are planning to tour throughout 2015 at festivals and on the new album’s world tour.
