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 So Far, So Good... So What!

They should have changed their name to MEGAMESS for this one. Nothing works on this for me. Where do I even begin? Well, the production? Horrible! Songwriting? Crap. Song order. Why start with an instrumental? It seems like someone just threw these together in a totally random fashion. I generally like their covers but “Anarchy In The UK” is just so cliché and I can't stand it here. Musicanship. Sorry but Jeff Young is not ready for prime time on this release. He just can't handle the duties as a lead guitarist of a late 80s thrash band. Despite this taking over 5 months to record with a major label budget it just fails to deliver in virtually every department for me. Being surrounded by two of the best albums that metal music has to offer only makes this seem even limper. They can change the title of the album too. “Look At How Much We Suck” would suit me fine. On a positive note I actually like the track “In My Darkest Hour” which probably refers to Mustaine's consistent drug use which led to this MEGAMESS.

MEGADETH Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?

PEACE SELLS BUT WHO'S BUYING is the perfect example of how excellent MEGADETH can sound when all the stars align. This album contains the best of both worlds for this band. They are still a young and angry thrash metal band with a metallic fury that is on full display, yet they managed to craft some very strong material to cast their weight. The result is an epic classic sounding metal album that still sounds excellent to this day. The musicianship has improved over the first album and the production is on a whole other level as well.

Most noticeable is the new direction in political views on this album. The year 1986 is still the era when self-obsessed hair bands were ruling the metal world and social critique was a rather new form for a band that was relatively known. The album gets the adrenaline pumping with the first track “Wake Up Dead” and doesn't stop until the very last note is played. My second favorite MEGADETH album and one that I do often revisit.

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

MEGADETH's first album is the thrash metal equivalent to many black metal demos in terms of production quality. This album is notorious for its muddy murky sound because the band took the money and binged on booze, babes and grub. No money left to pay a producer so they sacked him and finished it themselves. Although it isn't great, it isn't as bad as the later professionally recorded album “So Far, So Good...” It gives it that underground feel and feels a million miles away from the glossy over-produced album “Countdown To Extinction.”

Although it's not their best album, I really love the songs on this one including perhaps the ONLY metal version of Nancy Sinatra's “These Boots!” This album has a satisfying energetic and raw feel to it. These headbangers were hungry for success which wouldn't be far away but on this release we get a thrash fury in full flame unlike anything that came after. This album is also interesting in the way it sounds. It's not quite thrash yet and you can hear the transitioning taking place right here. A fun little album that I don't revisit often enough.

MEGADETH Countdown to Extinction: Live

Live album · 2013 · Thrash Metal

UMUR
"Countdown to Extinction: Live" is a live album release by US thrash/heavy metal act Megadeth. The album was released through Tradecraft Records in September 2013. The album was recorded on December the 7th, 2012 at Fox Theatre in Los Angeles on the "Countdown to Extinction 20th Anniversary Tour". A tour the band did to celebrate the 20th annniversary of their classic "Countdown to Extinction" album from 1992 (which on a sidenote is still the band´s best selling album). The band embarked on a similar tour to celebrate the 20th annniversary of "Rust in Piece (1990)" and released the "Rust In Peace Live (2010)" album in the wake of that tour. "Countdown to Extinction: Live" is also available in the DVD format.

The setlist on "Countdown to Extinction: Live" features all tracks from "Countdown to Extinction (1992)" bookended by three opening tracks and three closing tracks from other Megadeth albums. The setlist works well and that´s also true for the show as a whole which flows well. Dave Mustaine doesn´t communicate a lot with the audience, but he does talk some and also introduce the band near the end of the album and that´s good for the live feeling of the album because the band are very well playing and sometimes it´s almost like listening to a less polished version of the studio tracks. Dave Mustaine isn´t the best singer in the live environment and paired with a sound production that´s a bit tame "Countdown to Extinction: Live" isn´t the most interesting live album as far as sound quality goes.

Still this is a decent quality release with a well playing band and a good track selection and I´d say a 3 - 3.5 star (65%) rating is warranted.

Good reason this is one of the highest rated metal releases of all time. It just sounds perfect from beginning to end. Well constructed songs with riveting thrash fury and ripping melodic guitar solos from Marty Friedman all conspired to make an epic album. I should also mention the phenomenal bass of David Ellefson and Nick Menza's pounding drums. Only the vocals of Dave Mustaine are the part of this band that don't absolutely thrill me, but despite them this is still a masterpiece.

Unlike the previous albums which Dave Mustaine continuously found himself butting heads with producers and inevitably firing them, this album was the one where a single producer had the luxury of sitting through the entire process. The album came out at a time when glam metal ruled and was a huge impetus in ushering in the newer extreme forms of metal to the mainstream. Another album that I never tire of no matter how many times I listen to it.

MEGADETH That One Night - Live in Buenos Aires

Movie · 2007 · Thrash Metal

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

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.
