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 United Abominations

Album · 2007 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"United Abominations" is the 11th full-length studio album by US thrash/heavy metal act Megadeth. The album was released through Roadrunner Records in May 2007. It´s the successor to "The System Has Failed" from 2004 and features an almost completely new lineup since the predecessor, as the only remaining member of the lineup who recorded "The System Has Failed (2004)" is lead vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine. Mustaine has brought in the Drover brothers Glenn and Shawn (Eidolon) on guitars and drums respectively and former White Lion bassist James Lomenzo was brought in to complete the quartet lineup.

The material on "United Abominations" is the sound of Megadeth as we know them. Melodic thrash/heavy metal featuring sharp riffs, a skilled and well playing rhythm section, great guitar harmonies and blistering solo work, and Mustaine´s distinct sounding snarling vocals in front. Mustaine has increased his melodic singing over the years, and his most raw snarling has decreased, but there is generally a good balance between the two styles on "United Abominations". He also talks/sings on some parts and Cristina Scabbia of Lacuna Coil performs guest vocals on the re-recording of "À Tout le Monde (Set Me Free)".

Initially I didn´t understand the idea of re-recording a song, which in its original form is already a Megadeth evergreen, but I must say that this re-recorded version is quite the treat. "United Abominations" is overall a very well written and for the most part instantly catchy and memorable album, but a little criticism would be that it is frontloaded with the best quality material. The first five tracks on the tracklist are all great and the above mentioned re-recording of "À Tout le Monde (Set Me Free)" is also a highlight, but some of the closing tracks on the album aren´t that remarkable ("Burnt Ice" is quite a nicely fierce thrasher though). Mind you there´s nothing of a bad quality here, just a couple of tracks which aren´t that memorable beyond their playing time (and there are some pretty awful lyrics which mare "Amerikhastan").

"United Abominations" features a powerful, heavy, and detailed sounding production, which suits the material perfectly and does what the best production do...make the material shine. Upon conclusion "United Abominations" is a step up in quality from the 2004 comeback album "The System Has Failed". Megadeth sound like a band on this album and not just a solo project by Mustaine released under the Megadeth monicker (which "The System Has Failed (2004)" pretty much was). And that´s not to take away from "The System Has Failed (2004)" which is a great album in its own right, but to my ears this one just sounds more like a "real" Megadeth album. A 3.5 - 4 star (75%) rating is deserved.

MEGADETH The System Has Failed

UMUR
"The System Has Failed" is the 10th full-length studio album by US thrash/heavy metal act Megadeth. The album was released through Sanctuary Records in September 2004. It´s the successor to "The World Needs a Hero" from 2001 and features several lineup changes since the predecessor. The only remaining member of the lineup who recorded "The World Needs a Hero (2001)" is actually lead vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine. Several different things led to the big lineup shuffles, and the first was Mustaine disbanding Megadeth in April 2002, because of a serious arm injury, which made him unable to play guitar. Mustaine received intense physical therapy but it still took months before he could play guitar again.

The writing sessions for "The System Has Failed" started out as a Mustaine solo project, but because of contractual obligations the project adopted the Megadeth name. Mustaine called his old friend and co-founder of the band bassist David Ellefson, but the latter was unsatisfied with the financial terms of the deal Mustaine offered him and refused the offer to return to Megadeth. Instead Mustaine opted to bring in session musicians for the project. Former Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland was brought in to record solos and lead guitar parts, Jimmy Sloas was brought in to record bass, and Vinnie Colaiuta to play drums. The latter is mostly known for playing on many jazz/fusion releases by various artists, but also for playing with Frank Zappa in the late 70s and early 80s. A very skilled drummer and quite the capacity.

Not surprisingly the high level musicianship is one of the greatest assets of "The System Has Failed". Colaiuta brings something a little different to the rhythm part of the band´s sound (while staying true to the core sound), and Poland delivers one blistering melodic solo after another. Mustaine sounds revitalized after the rather limb "The World Needs a Hero (2001)" and his riffs are sharp and his vocals strong. His unique voice will always be an aquired taste, but he arguably puts on a good performance here. It sounds like the hiatus (although it was forced upon him) was actually good for him.

The material are generally of a good quality but it´s not through and through a brilliant release. There are enough quality material here to warrant me calling "The System Has Failed" a good quality album though, and tracks like "Blackmail the Universe", "Kick the Chair", and "My Kingdom" (which are all among the most hard edged and thrash metal oriented tracks on the album) are for example pretty strong tracks, which smell just a little bit like 80s/90s Megadeth. The remaining tracks range from good to slightly mediocre, but none are bad. If I have to compare "The System Has Failed" with some previous Megadeth releases it would probably be the melodic heavy metal oriented "Youthanasia (1994)" with an occasional whiff of "Peace Sells... But Who's Buying? (1986)". The latter is mostly due to Poland contributing but the occasional appearance of a hard edged riff also point in that direction.

"The System Has Failed" features a powerful, detailed, and well sounding production, which suits the material perfectly. The sound greatly contributes to the material shining and appearing as effectful as possible. Upon conclusion Megadeth have succeeded yet again in writing and recording a good quality melodic heavy metal/thrash metal album. It occasionally makes my blood boil and the rest of the time I´m at least well entertained listening to music as well composed and performed as the case is here. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

MEGADETH The World Needs a Hero

Album · 2001 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"The World Needs a Hero" is the 9th full-length studio album by US thrash/heavy metal act Megadeth. The album was released through Sanctuary Records in May 2001. It´s the successor to "Risk" from 1999, which was an album dividing the fanbase with its more accessible hard/heavy rock/metal sound. There has been one lineup change since the predecessor as guitarist Marty Friedman has left and has been replaced by Al Pitrelli (fresh out of a stint with Savatage).

Stylistically it´s pretty obvious already from album opener "Disconnect", that Megadeth have opted to pursue/return to a more hard edged thrash/heavy metal sound, after the more hard rock/heavy rock direction of "Risk (1999)", which generally didn´t bring them many new fans. When that is said, there are still quite a few melodic and accessible tracks on "The World Needs a Hero", and ultimately it´s more a heavy metal album than a thrash metal ditto. Sure "Disconnect", "Recipe for Hate...Warhorse", and especially "Return to Hangar" (and a few others) feature thrashy riffs and rhythms, but there are just as many melodic heavy rockers featured on the album, and even a couple of ballad/power ballad type tracks. So "The World Needs a Hero" is a pretty varied album. If you put on the negative attitude, you could also call it stylistically inconsistent and an album with a tracklist which doesn´t flow well, and I think I´ll have to go with the latter opinion.

"The World Needs a Hero" features a less polished and more raw sounding production job, than heard on a Megadeth album for years. It´s not raw in the sense that it sounds like the 80s releases, but it´s slightly less polished than the last couple of albums. It´s not a particularly well sounding production though, and it could have done with some bottom end heaviness and a better sounding guitar tone.

Upon conclusion "The World Needs a Hero" is not the most interesting Megadeth album in their sizable discography. It features a couple of good songs and a lot of filler material, which when it´s written by Megadeth is still of a decent quality, but there´s seldom a moment on "The World Needs a Hero" when it feels like the band shine. So it´s a very average quality release and a 3 star (60%) rating isn´t all wrong.

MEGADETH Risk

Album · 1999 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Risk" is the 8th full-length studio album by US thrash/heavy metal act Megadeth. The album was released through Capitol Records in August 1999. There´s been one lineup change since "Cryptic Writings (1997)" as drummer Nick Menza has been replaced by Jimmy DeGrasso (Suicidal Tendencies, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, David Lee Roth, White Lion...), thus ending the most stabile lineup in the history of the band (and the lineup most fans think of as the "classic" Megadeth lineup).

While fans often point to "Risk", when speaking of low points in Megadeth´s career, it´s interesting to note that it´s actually only slightly less heavy than "Cryptic Writings (1997)" and overall sounds unmistakably as Megadeth. Stylistically the material on "Risk" is hard rock oriented heavy metal. The title of the album probably stems from the fact that Megadeth at that point in their career wanted to take some risks with their music, and in this case that meant pursuing an even more radio friendly sound than what they had done previously. They did something similar on "Cryptic Writings (1997)" and succeeded in doing so, but "Risk" was generally not received with praising reviews and many fans also felt the band had moved too far from their thrash/heavy metal roots.

To my ears the difference in style isn´t that big from "Cryptic Writings (1997)" to "Risk" though. Sure there were a few harder edged thrash metal oriented tracks on the former and none of those on the latter, but most of the material on "Cryptic Writings (1997)" is melodic heavy metal rather than thrash metal, which can also be said about the material on "Risk". There´s maybe an added melodic sensibility and an instant catchiness to the material on "Risk", but that´s about it if comparisons have to be made to its direct predecessor.

The material on the 12 track, 51:38 minutes long album are generally well written, melodic, and catchy. Some tracks feature fairly heavy riffs and rhythms like "Insomnia", "The Doctor is Calling", and "Crush ´Em", while other tracks like "Breadline" and "I´ll Be There" feature a softer almost mainstream appeal. Even the most heavy tracks also feature catchy melodic sections though and "Risk" is generally not a very hard edged release.

The album features a well sounding production, which suits the material well, and "Risk" is on most parameters a quality release. While it may not be as heavy as some fans would have wanted I think it´s obvious the band put a lot of hard work and dedication into the project, and it shines through that they are passionate about the material. The performances are flawless and Dave Mustaine sings better than ever, so the musicianship is top notch. A 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

MEGADETH Cryptic Writings

Album · 1997 · Heavy Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Cryptic Writings" is the 7th full-length studio album by US thrash/heavy metal act Megadeth. The album was released through Capitol Records in June 1997. It´s the fourth and last album to feature Megadeth´s arguably most successful lineup, as drummer Nick Menza would leave the band while touring in support of the album. He was initially forced to leave the tour because of a problem with his knee, which required surgery and hospitalization. According to Menza he was fired by vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine, while still in the hospital recovering from surgery. Jimmy DeGrasso (Suicidal Tendencies, Alice Cooper, Ozzy Osbourne, David Lee Roth, White Lion...), who had filled in for Menza while he was in the hospital, was hired as the band´s new drummer.

"Cryptic Writings" is the successor to "Youthanasia" from 1994. While not selling quite as well as "Countdown to Extinction (1992)" did, "Youthanasia (1994)" was stil a commercially very successful release for Megadeth, selling more than a million copies. "Youthanasia (1994)" saw Megadeth moving in a more accessible and maintream oriented heavy rock/metal direction, and that style is continued on "Cryptic Writings", which was deliberately written with the aim of getting rock radio airplay. The band´s new manager Bud Prager adviced Mustaine to alter his lyrical approach to not alienate a mainstream audience and also to write more conscise radio friendly material.

With that in mind it´s not surprising that the 12 tracks on the 47:12 are predominantly easily accessible vers/chorus structured heavy rock/metal tracks. The trace of the band´s thrash metal past are on "The Disintegrators" and on "FFF", which both feature a relatively fast pace and some thrashy riffs. Other than those two tracks, the album only features mid-tempo heavy rock/metal tracks with a strong emphasis on melody and cathiness. Some tracks like "Trust", "Almost Honest", and "Have Cool, Will Travel", stand out a bit, but most tracks on the album are pretty standard quality heavy metal tracks and nothing out of the ordinary or particularly memorable beyond listening to the album. In that respect "Cryptic Writings" suffers from some of the same issues as "Youthanasia (1994)" did.

"Cryptic Writings" features a clear, dry, and a bit clinical sounding production, which would probably have suited hard edged thrashy material better than the heavy metal tracks featured on the album. A more organic sounding production job would have suited the material better.

So upon conclusion "Cryptic Writings" is a decent quality release by Megadeth with both some well written material but also some material which isn´t as remarkable. The playing is as always on a high level, and Mustaine´s vocals are as distinct sounding as ever too (and as much as ever an aquired taste), and objectively seen the sound production is professonal and well sounding too. Therefore a 3.5 star (70%) rating isn´t all wrong, although "Cryptic Writings" definitely is the least interesting release out of the four recorded by this Megadeth lineup.

MEGADETH Megadeth - VH-1 Behind the Music Extended

Movie · 2001 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
martindavey87
The Megadeth episode of VH1’s ‘Behind the Music’ series is pretty much exactly what it says it is; a look at the history of one of heavy metal’s most beloved bands. The VH1 name gives this a bit more credibility and authenticity than your typical unofficial band biography, and as such, this features interviews with band members past and present, as well as other people associated with the band at one point or another.

Looking candidly at Dave Mustaine’s expulsion from Metallica, the bands early days and their later attempts to break into mainstream territory, as well as Mustaine’s endless battles with addictions, other than being a bit outdated now, (being released in 2001), this is overall a very interesting watch, and a worthy addition to any Megadeth fan’s collection.

‘Rusted Pieces’ was my first music DVD purchase, way back in the year 2000, at the tender age of 13! While YouTube makes any collection of promotional music videos pretty pointless today, this was still an awesome video to watch back when I was barely old enough to shave. Featuring just six music videos and small bits of dialogue in between each song, these are some of Megadeth’s finest early songs, and have some significance to heavy metal history. However, despite that, at barely half an hour in duration, this isn’t worth owning today unless you’re an OCD collector like me, who needs to own everything.

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.
