MEGADETH picture
Megadeth is an American thrash metal band led by founder, front man, guitarist, and songwriter Dave Mustaine. Formed in 1983 Los Angeles, California with bass player David Ellefson following Mustaine's departure from Metallica, the band has since released twelve studio albums, six live albums, two EPs, thirty singles, thirty-two music videos, and three compilations.

As a pioneer of the American thrash metal movement, Megadeth rose to international fame in the 1980s, but experienced numerous line-up changes, due partly to the band's notorious substance abuse problems. After finding sobriety and securing a stable line-up, Megadeth went on to release a string of platinum and gold albums, including the platinum-selling landmark Rust in Peace in 1990 and the Grammy nominated, multi-platinum Countdown to Extinction in 1992. Megadeth disbanded in 2002 after Mustaine suffered a severe nerve injury to his left arm, but following extensive physical therapy, Mustaine reformed the band in 2004

MEGADETH Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good!

Not many albums say pure revenge and anger like Megadeth's debut album. It's rough, it spits, and it has all the pissed off energy to deliver a balls-to-the-wall thrash/speed metal album. Plus how can you not love a title that is so campy like this one but still feels like a big middle finger? It's not much like Kill 'em All, it doesn't feel like a band that hasn't found their sound like Fistful of Steel, and its album cover doesn't out-camp Show No Mercy, and all the better for it.

There's something real cathartic about letting all your built up emotions out in the form of music, and that's exactly what makes Killing Is My Business...and Business Is Good such an enjoyable and aggressive listen. Put yourself in Dave Mustaine's shoes, and I'm sure you'd be pissed to no end too if you got kicked out of a band that you committed yourself to. This certainly has the well-written music to back up that anger though with frantic speeds, killer riffs, colossal drums, Mustaine's signature sneering vocals, and Ellefson's sweet bass grooves.

Probably the most well-known song on the album is "Mechanix", which Mustaine originally wrote for Metallica, and you can tell when listening to it. It would certainly not sound out of place on Kill 'em All, but also fits right in with what would become Megadeth's signature sound. The title cut is one of my favorites, and actually kind of sounds like a precursor to Soundgarden's "Nazi Driver" from 1988's UltraMegaOK. "The Skull Beneath the Skin" is another favorite, with absolutely killer riffing and almost jazzy basslines.

Depending on what's most important, the remaster or the original might be the best choice. The original has a rougher production, but the cover of "These Boots" is completely in it's snarky uncut form. The remaster has a much better and louder production, but unfortunately "These Boots" is censored. The censor is even more obnoxious because it actually has bleeps rather than just cutting of words. So whichever is more important to the listener will determine which version to get.

While I think Kill 'em All is probably the best big four debuts, Megadeth's isn't far behind at all and seems more focused. It's got spitfire angst with great music to back it up. If you're pissed off, and a Pantera album isn't around, grab the next best thing with one of Megadeth's first four albums. Hope you found this review album, feel free to comment!

MEGADETH So Far, So Good... So What!

Album · 1988 · Thrash Metal

voila_la_scorie
I remember this being my first purchase of 1988. The cassette was in stores in January and though the date on the back said 1988, I couldn’t help but think that the music had been recorded in 1987. I loved the first three tracks on “Peace Sells” and was looking for more of the same. Though I did not find what I had hoped for, this album was in a way better because with “Peace Sells” I rarely felt like listening to anything after the first three tracks but “So Far, So Good… So What” I liked well enough for all the songs except “Mary Jane”. I later replaced my cassette with a CD, which remained for many years in a box until recently when I dug it out and put it in my iTunes library. In the meantime, I had acquired at last “Countdown to Extinction” and had ordered the remixed/remastered editions of “Peace Sells” and “Rust in Peace”, the latter being an album that failed to impress me back in the day and had finally been sold off to a second hand CD store some years ago. In eager anticipation of a large Megadeth moment coming on soon, I listened to “So Far, So Good” and thought that the sound was not so good. I ordered the remixed/remastered version of that album too.

This is a short album. I thought so back in 1988 and I still think so, though this new issue has four bonus tracks, early recorded versions of four of the songs when Paul Lani was still the producer. It begins with the instrumental “Into the Lungs of Hell”, which I always enjoyed. The great lead guitar melody does threaten to start sounding repetitive but is saved by the building tension in the music. I was shocked to hear on the remixed version the addition of horns in one part. This was not how I remembered the song! I had already put the original CD in a bag to take to the second hand CD store but now I have decided to keep it. The horns have spoiled that part of the music for me.

“Set the World Afire” still sounds good and the CD liner notes explain how this was the first song Dave Mustaine wrote after his departure from Metallica, though it was not to appear on disc until the third album. It’s a fast, aggressive tune that show cases Mustaine’s sneering and growling vocal style.

The cover of “Anarchy in the U.K.” I always liked but the surprise for me was listening to “Mary Jane”. The music is actually much more enjoyable in parts that I recalled and the construction of the song seeming rather progressive. But on the remix I was more put off than amused at first when I heard Mustaine’s goofy monkey insanity hoot and tee-hee-hee laughter. I don’t think that was part of the original, was it? I’ve grown accustomed to it now but it still sounds goofy.

I’ve always enjoyed the second side of the album more. “502”, “In My Darkest Hour”, “Liar” and “Hook in Mouth” I can listen to straight through and feel good. The middle part of “Liar” where Mustaine is just shooting out the lyrics with his snarling, spitting vocal style would be classic if everyone else thought so. “Hook in Mouth” was often my choice for mixed tapes partly because “Set the World Afire” segued from the fading guitar of “Into the Lings of Hell” before (there is a clean break on the remixed/remastered version) and partly because “Hook in Mouth” had enough of the Megadeth trademarks: heavy guitar, aggression, and Dave’s unique way of painting a scene with his vocal approach.

While recently reading reviews and comments about the remixed/remastered albums, I found that some people were not especially fond of this album but I quite like it mostly. I would have preferred a song or two more and maybe a few more outstanding riffs like in “Wake Up Dead” and “The Conjuring” but overall I think this is a pretty good effort considering all the trouble and hassle that was going on at the time (changing producers, substance abuse, pressure to follow up the successful sophomore album, etc.). I’m comfortable with a four-star rating.

MEGADETH Dystopia

UMUR
"Dystopia" is the 15th full-length studio album by US thrash/heavy metal act Megadeth. The album was released through Tradecraft Records in January 2016. It´s the successor to the often criticized "Super Collider (2013)", which many fans felt was too mainstream oriented. Since the release of "Super Collider (2013)" quite a few changes have been made though. Not only to the musical style, but also to the lineup as guitarist Chris Broderick has been replaced by Kiko Louriero (Angra), and drummer Shawn Drover has been replaced by Chris Adler (Lamb of God). The usual suspects are Dave Mustaine (guitars, vocals) and Dave Ellefson (bass).

The changes in the lineup seem to have somewhat reignited Megadeth as "Dystopia" sounds a bit more focused and consistent in quality than many of the post-2000 albums by the band. The guitar tone and the riffs are also harder edged and you´ll find few songs here with mainstream appeal. That doesn´t mean "Dystopia" is an all out thrash metal fest though, and Megadeth still manage to balance the thrashy parts with more melodic inclined heavy metal parts. So it´s more or less like it´s always been, which means it´s in the songwriting quality where "Dystopia" predominantly sets itself apart from the less interesting releases by Megadeth. Out of the post-2000 Megadeth releases it´s closest in style and quality to "Endgame (2009)".

The two new guys bring a lot to the music. Both Chris Broderick and Shawn Drover are arguably skilled musicians, but in hindsight Mustaine might have held on to them for too long, and it´s obvious that Kiko Louriero and Chris Adler provide the music and main songwriter Mustaine with a wind of something fresh and inspiring. Chris Adler´s playing adds a dynamic organic touch to the album (although the drum production could have prosphered from a more organic tone), and Kiko Louriero´s guitar solos are varied, melodic, and shredding, complimenting Mustaine´s more classic blues based shredding well.

"Dystopia" opens with a strong trio of tracks in "The Threat Is Real", "Dystopia", and "Fatal Illusion". All three among the highlight of the album. Not all remaining tracks are as strong or as memorable as the opening tracks, but the quality of the material is generally high. The dark atmosphere, the hard edged thrashy riffs and rhythms, and the trade off guitar solos all work really well along with Mustaine´s distinct sounding voice and delivery.

The sound production is professional, clear, and powerful. The sound suits the music perfectly. So upon conclusion "Dystopia" is a high quality release by Megadeth and certainly one of their stronger post-2000 releases. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

Megadeth - Dystopia

"Dystopia" is the fifteenth studio album from thrash metal giants Megadeth. Megadeth is well-known as one of the big four of thrash metal, and for creating milestone albums such as "Peace Sells...But Who's Buying?", "Rust in Peace", and "Countdown to Extinction". Unfortunately, while they have had quite a few really great releases since, their discography is a bit inconsistent in quality. I felt like the previous two releases, "TH1RT3EN" and "Super Collider", were pretty lackluster and mediocre with only a few great tracks. So how is their newest release?

"Dystopia" blows their last three albums out of the water, and it actually has a different feel to it then the majority of their later output. To my ears, it combines Megadeth's classic sound with the more modern sound of "The System has Failed" and "United Abominations". Songs like opener 'The Threat is Real' and 'Fatal Illusion' are classic Megadeth, the latter having a short but killer bassline from Dave Ellefson. The riffing in parts of the song are reminiscent of the band's classic albums. The riffing towards the end of the title track is incredibly catchy, and just try not to get addicted.

The new additions of Kiko Louriero and Chris Adler really help the band's sound, with the guitar and drums feeling a lot more powerful and punchy this time around. 'Death From Within', 'Lying in State', and 'Bullet to the Brain' especially showcase this power. The latter's chorus also has an amazing vocal performance from Dave Mustaine, combining his normal sneer and menacing melodic vocals. These menacing vocals and menacing atmosphere is also really strong in 'Post-American World' which has great soloing. There is also some really beautiful classical guitar work, especially in 'Poisonous Shadows' and 'Conquer or Die'.

The lyrics on the album are classic Megadeth, being centered around politics. While not as strong as "Peace Sells" or "Rust in Peace", the lyrics are still really strong. 'The Threat is Real' and 'Lying in State' especially have some of my favorite lyrics on the album. The cover of Hardcore Punk band Fear's 'Foreign Policy' fits in perfectly with the theme of the album, and is actually one of my favorite songs on the album. It's such a powerful song, and the chants of "Foreign Policy" just punch you in the gut.

Overall, "Dystopia" is easily Megadeth's best album since at least "The System has Failed" in my book if not since "Countdown to Extinction". If you want powerful political thrash with a modern sound, then "Dystopia" is a perfect choice. Hope you found this review helpful.

Released in January 2016 Dystopia is the fifteenth studio album from Megadeth. The first since 2013’s Super Collider which divided fan opinion for not being heavy enough and lacking thrash elements. We have also seen the departure of drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick and replaced by Lamb Of God drummer Chris Adler and Angra guitarist Kiko Louriero. Both excellent and exciting players but making it seem somehow less of a permanent solution due to their commitments to their other bands – we shall see.

Dystopia is certainly a return to the thrashier Megadeth style and a damn good album and somewhat better than Super Collider when at its best, speaking as someone who’s a fan of that release. The band plays brilliantly, Loureiro and Adler easily proving their worth and hats off to Dave Mustaine for this inspired choice. Loureiro plays some spellbinding solos and Adler whilst not quite as inventive with his playing as in his day job delivers the goods better than most would and a master of his art. This is the strongest line up since the days of Marty Friedman and Nick Menza.

When Dystopia is good it’s very good to excellent with some captivating moments – the album gets off to a great start with The Threat Is Real with its pummelling galloping riff and some stunning guitar soloing – sure to become a live favourite. The high quality is maintained for a large part of the album highlights being Fatal Illusion, Death From Within, Poisonous Shadows and Lying In State. The title track could however have sat comfortably on Super Collider and not one of the best songs here but the solo section raises it from ordinariness. The energy level is high throughout with plenty of the Megadeth groove but a few tracks rob the album of classic status, mainly towards the end, a couple of lack lustre songs in The Emperor and Foreign Policy – a cover of USA hardcore band Fear – as necessary as their cover of Anarchy In The UK on So Far, So Good…So What! The stuff of B sides.

Despite a couple of weak moments the overall quality of the songs and playing on Dystopia just about place it in the top 5 albums of their career and hopefully this line up will last long enough to make a follow up.

MEGADETH That One Night - Live in Buenos Aires

Megadeth’s That One Night: Live In Buenos Aires is arguably the band’s finest live effort and certainly one of their best DVDs. The band are absolutely on fire in terms of performance and energy, the crowd are going wild for the band and the setlist is superb, what more could anyone ask for in a concert ?

In terms of the actual DVD; the Audio/Visual quality is top notch and the whole performance is captured well, with a good job made of the mixing, camerawork and editing. Everything is utterly professional and well handled, nothing is cheesy or over the top which just allows the music to do the talking.

Surprisingly; apart from frontman Dave Mustaine, even though the band’s line up at the time didn’t feature any musician responsible for the albums from Rust In Peace – Cryptic Writings, or indeed David Ellefson who was on every single Megadeth album until The System has Failed, the band put down a storming performance and seem to be at the top of their game, reveling in their success and fired on by the manic crowd.

(Then) New members Glen Drover on guitar, James MacDonough on Bass and on Shawn Drover on Drums are all great additions to the band, and it isn’t difficult to see why Glen lasted another studio album and Shawn remains with the band to this day.

The concert includes all the classic Megadeth material you would expect like ‘Peace Sells…,’ ‘Holy Wars… The Punishment Due,’ ‘Symphony Of Destruction,’ and ‘In My Darkest Hour,’ as well as some less played numbers such as ‘I’ll Be There,’ and the superb ‘Set The World Afire.’

Additionally, their then new The System Has Failed record is well represented and the songs fit well into the set along side all the fan favourites.

That One Night’ was filmed in 2005 and released in 2007 and is still a brilliant live document and perhaps unsurpassed by later releases. I remember being hugely impressed with it when it was new, and watching it back now my opinion has not changed at all, which is surely a good sign. All Megadeth fans should all consider picking up a copy, this is an utterly fantastic concert and would serve as a fine introduction to the band. I highly recommend it.

MEGADETH Rude Awakening

Megadeth have a lot of DVDs on the market now; from video collections and documentaries, to bonus DVDs, to official concerts like this and ‘That One Night,’ and ‘Rust In Peace Live,’ to their segments on multi-band DVDs like Gigantour and The Big Four, as well as what I suspect are unofficial DVD’s like ‘Head Crusher,’ ‘Alive In USA 2008,’ ‘Megadeth Live,’ and ‘Metal Symphonies.’

When choosing a Megadeth DVD then, you really are spoiled for choice. In my opinion this and That One Night are the two best options, which provide longest concerts with the most definitive set lists, also with the best sound and visual qualities.

Rude Awakening finds Megadeth at the end of the first period in their career, just before the break-up and before the reunion which saw the band traveling back into the territory of Thrash Metal once again, after a series of albums in the nineties that explored different territory.

This DVD was filmed in late 2001 and released in 2002 while the band were promoting their The World Needs A Hero album and features the superb and underrated Al Pitrelli on guitar and Jimmy DeGrasso on drums supporting Megadeth stalwarts Dave Ellefson and Dave Mustaine.

The first thing that needs mentioning about the actual DVD is the quality of the camera work, visuals and editing. To this date Rude Awakening is still arguably the finest and most professional video release from Megadeth. Not being filmed outdoors the makers had a great level of precision and control over everything and the stage set up and lighting helped a lot too in making this one of the best looking band DVDs of the era. Almost a decade on and Rude Awakening still looks fantastic.

The track listing is excellent and covers a lot of the fan favourite material from every album the band had released up until that point except Risk. It also contains a healthy amount of material from the then new The World Needs A Hero record which arguably sounds even better live than on record. The band’s 90s era is well served here too, as much as their 80s output and this really is a great all rounder, especially for Megadeth fans who almost like everything the band put out. Tracks like ‘Peace Sells,’ ‘Holy Wars,’ and ‘Mechanix,’ all sit comfortably beside ‘Trust,’ and ‘Reckoning Day,’ in a diverse but very entertaining set.

Some people have problems with the sound, as Dave’s vocals can be too quiet especially when he gets too far from the mic and on the surround sound mix the guitars aren’t apparently handled very well in the first half of the concert. As someone who has listened to the stereo mix for almost a decade I have never had a problem with the sound, in fact I love it. If you yourself play bass or drums you are likely to love the sound mix.

Apart from the mix, the actual recording quality and timbre of the actual individual components are phenomenal, rarely has a drum kit sounded so amazing live. Something well demonstrated during a phenomenal drum solo during She-Wolf.

All of this of course is only the main concert and you still have a brief and entertaining documentary and bonus concert on top of it. Overall; Rude Awakening is definitely something you should check out if you like Megadeth.
