Well I'm not too sure that bands like Metallica, Judas Priest, Ozzy, Iron Maiden, Slayer, etc. are outside of their concerts like most other bands we see today, ya know? He knows his band isn't just some band, that they are Megadeth. He knows that he shouldn't have to go out of his way to promote his own stuff, because all the bands I listed don't have to either. Megadeth is a big band, they play to both big crowds and small clubs.
Over their career, Megadeth has had (by my count) 5 Top Ten Records and 4 Top Ten "Mainstream Rock" Singles, and by that measure they shouldn't have to Self-Promote any record. I might not like Metallica, but I know it isn't Metallica's job to promote their album outside of Touring. The Label needs to do their work, and we all know how great Roadrunner is with their Artists.
Megadeth is my favorite band yes, but I know Frankie, you'll see my point.
