Megadeth’s Rust in Peace is an outstanding example of classic thrash metal - full of great riffs, speed, aggression, shredding, and time-changes. It is both heavy and technical with progressive, complex rhythms. Mustaine’s and Friedman’s multiple back to back duelling solos show the pairing to be a force to be reckoned with. The speed of their riffing is matched to perfection by Ellefson’s bass and Menza’s blisteringly quick drumming. The tracks on the album consistently demonstrate Mustaine’s impressive composition skills. The only problem with the album is that because it is so fast it is over far too quickly for me.
