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 Crush 'Em

Single · 1999 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners

July 5th, 1999.

Megadeth were performing on an episode of World Championship Wrestling’s Monday Nitro. It seemed odd that a metal band would perform at a wrestling event, and much like Kiss did a few weeks prior, it bombed. Nobody wanted to see it. Nobody did see it. And it accomplished nothing.

Except for changing my life.

Performing ‘Crush ‘Em’ to coincide with the return of wrestler Bill Goldberg from a break (Goldberg starred in the movie Universal Soldier: The Return, of which this featured on the soundtrack), the song played repeatedly over the following weeks, and 12 year-old me was absolutely hooked!

‘Crush ‘Em’ itself is a huge departure from Megadeth’s typical sound. With the 90’s coming to a close, Dave Mustaine tried his hand at writing mainstream rock songs, hoping to appeal to bigger audiences with the album ‘Risk’. He failed. Big time. But ‘Crush ‘Em’ served one purpose, and it served it well. It was intended as a sports anthem, with hopes that it’d be played in arenas at games, and for a while, it was. With its pounding bass line and thunderous guitars, the chanting of “Crush! Crush ‘Em!” is tailor-made for getting crowds psyched up. It’s simple, it’s catchy, it’s effective.

As for this single release however? Meh. There’s just two songs. An album version, and a radio version, which basically skips one verse and the outro. Nothing special, nothing fancy, no gimmicks or novelties. Just two different versions of ‘Crush ‘Em’. Fantastic song, and I genuinely mean that. But don’t bother getting this single unless you’re a huge, huge fan that absolutely must own everything regardless of how pointless it might be. Just get the ‘Risk’ album instead.

And yeah, that is a recommendation for ‘Risk’. That album is awesome!

MEGADETH The World Needs a Hero

Megadeth took a huge risk (no pun intended) with 1999's 'Risk' album. In a bid to gain more mainstream success, the band shunned the thrash metal genre they'd popularized in the 80's and turned to a radio-friendly rock sound. It didn't pay off. Big time. Dave Mustaine and his crew had egg well and firmly on their faces, and nobody likes egg on their faces.

So by the time 2001 rolled around, the band had used up their one and only "gone back to their roots" cliché (every band that's been around long enough gets to do this at least once). The problem was, with 'Risks' massive failure behind them, and with rising tensions between artist and record label, this truly feels like a band, and in particular, a man (Mustaine), who is lacking enthusiasm and who's heart isn't in it.

For the record, I loved 'Risk'. Just saying.

With 'The World Needs a Hero', there's definitely a metal vibe again. But the music just seems pretty lifeless and rigid. The crunchy riffs are back, but everything seems so stoic. The spite and hatred of Megadeth's earlier days is long gone, having been replaced by some of the most mundane lyrics imaginable. While some of the songs are pretty decent, everything just seems so uninspired.

Guitar legend Marty Friedman, who left the band after the 'Risk' tour, has been replaced by Al Pitrelli of Savatage and Trans-Siberian Orchestra fame. This is actually really cool, because I love those bands, but unfortunately Pitrelli doesn't really have his own unique voice like his predecessor. And the interplay between Mustaine and Pitrelli doesn't produce anything noteworthy.

Still, this album does have its merits. '1000 Times Goodbye', 'Moto Psycho', 'Promises', 'Dread and the Fugitive Mind' and 'Disconnect' are all decent enough songs, but not really much to shout about if I'm honest. 'Return to Hanger', a sequel to one of their biggest hits, 'Hanger 18', serves as a weak attempt at capturing some of their thrash era glory, and things are capped off with 'When', a diabolical rip-off of the Diamond Head classic 'Am I Evil' (which is only a classic due to Mustaine's former band Metallica... the irony of it all).

Overall, this isn't a bad album, but it really sounds like a group that are burned out and in need of some new inspiration. While the world needs a hero, it feels like this band needs a break. And on that note...

MEGADETH Sampler 01

Promos, fans club and other releases (no bootlegs) · 1999 · Thrash Metal

I found this 1999 promo CD in a second hand shop for £1 and, being the collector that I am, had to purchase it, even though it offered nothing I didn't already have numerous times over. Released as a digipak with a plain black cover featuring the bands logo, this unnamed sampler, which conveniently has 'Sampler 01' on its spine, consists of a handful of totally random Megadeth songs that don't seem to flow or show any coherence whatsoever.

But that's okay, right? I mean, it's only intended for promotional purposes. And while there's a couple of songs I'm not overly bothered about, there's still a good representation of the bands career, up until that point, of course.

The sampler includes 'Crush 'Em', the lead single of the bands then-upcoming 1999 release 'Risk', as well as classics such as 'Holy Wars... The Punishment Due', 'Symphony of Destruction', 'Peace Sells' and 'Train of Consequences', all are fan favourites, as well as the bands cover of the Sex Pistols classic 'Anarchy in the UK'.

No doubt you'd have to be a serious uber-fan to track this CD down at this point. Especially as there's countless compilations far exceeding this in song variety and duration. But still, it's Megadeth damn it! There's no denying the quality of the music here, and if you're a super nerdy collector like me, then picking this up for a £1 just to sit on the shelf is an acceptable price to pay.

MEGADETH Live Trax

Live album · 1997 · Thrash Metal

martindavey87
Megadeth's 'Live Trax' is an EP released exclusively in Japan in 1997, and it's a fairly mundane affair which I'm not going to dwell on for too long.

The sound is alright, although Megadeth have never really had such a great live sound, and it certainly doesn't convey well in these recordings, which are taken from dates in 1995 and 1997. Dave Mustaine's voice could be considered an acquired taste at the best of times, but he certainly struggles in a live setting, even in his younger days, as is evident here.

There's six actual tracks, although there's technically seven songs, as 'Reckoning Day' also has 'Peace Sells' tacked on afterwards. The song choices are fine, consisting of tracks like 'Angry Again', 'Tornado of Souls' and 'A Tout le Monde', and the musicianship is of a high standard, especially as this is the "classic" line up featuring Marty Friedman on guitars and Nick Menza on drums. However, to tell the truth, there's just nothing remarkable about these recordings.

Maybe I'm just taking the idea of these types of EP's too seriously, but this is a pretty forgettable release. It's nothing special, and other than some cool imagery (the look of the CD certainly fits in well with that era of the band's music), this is only worth getting hold of if you're a huge fan.

MEGADETH Cryptic Sounds: No Voices in Your Head

EP · 1998 · Thrash Metal

martindavey87
Released in 1998, 'Cryptic Sounds' is a Japanese EP featuring instrumental versions of tracks from Megadeth's 1997 album, 'Cryptic Writings'. And what can I say about it? It's... okay?... I guess?

I mean, they're basically karaoke versions of Megadeth songs. Right?

The playing is tight and the sound is punchy ('Cryptic Writings' is probably one of my favourite Megadeth records), but this is definitely a novelty item for die-hard fans. One cool little addition is that all the vocal melodies from the original compositions are being played on guitar here, which is kind of cool, but not really. And the first half of 'She-Wolf' is played acoustically, given it a very lively and upbeat vibe.

For what it is, 'Cryptic Sounds' is a pretty cool CD to own, and there's no disputing the quality of the music, but I don't think I'll ever this over the original album with vocals. Definitely an item for collectors to track down and then probably never listen to.

MEGADETH That One Night - Live in Buenos Aires

Movie · 2007 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
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

Movie · 2002 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
Kingcrimsonprog
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.
