Megadeth
 
Hi all,

Okay so I know they've been around since the early 80's but I've just really started listening to Megadeth and really liking what I've heard so far so what im after now is, what are the best songs and albums, in your opinion that I can download from iTunes to get a proper taste before I go out and buy albums?

No doubt this will turn into a conversation about the Megadeth/Metallica issue lol

Haha, the 2 are inseparable. They are like peanut butter and jelly.. 2 totally different taste, different textures and they go hand in hand.

Megadeth started off in the speed/thrash metal days. Megadeths sound has changed over the years. If your looking for good Megadeth that shows the diversity in thier music check out the albums "Peace Sells, But Whos Buying ", "So far, So good, So What", "Rust In Peace" and "Countdown To Extinction."

To this day Countdown to Extinction is still my favorite. Check out thier Wikipedia page for some good reading ---> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Megadeth

I think its good for the younger generation to check out where thier favorite metal bands got thier inspiration, cuz Megadeth is more than likely one of them.

I'm a huge Megadeth fan. Countdown to Extinction, Hangar 18, Peace Sells, Killing is My Buissness, and even United Abominations are all great albums.

I'm going to see them with Children of Bodom, In Flames, Job For a Cowboy (I hate them) and some other band on Gigantour! Yay!

BTW, their new guitarist is sick.

Songwise, check out

Peave Sells
Sweating Bullets
Mechanix
Symphony of Destruction
Hangar 18
Killing is my Buissness
Tornado of Souls
And many more

And if you eventually REALLY REALLY REALLY like Megadeth, go buy the warchest. It's a box with every song ever written by them.

Oh, and Rust in Peace...Polaris (2 differant sounds, both good) Are good too. I think Rust in Peace is an album, too.

Countdown to Extinction is the masterpiece and the classic line-up. It's a must have for any metal fan. All the tracks are great, but Captive Honor and Ashes in your Mouth stand out.

Re: Megadeth
 
I suggest you check out the track "Holy Wars ..... The Punishment Due". One of my favorite metal songs.

Megadeth does nothing for me.

Songs: Sometimes.

If you can get past Mustaines vocals, Megadeths a great band. Check out Countdown to Extinction, Holy Wars, Hangar 18, Mechanix (which is a 4 Horseman cover/tribute or something, never really got the deal with that), She Wolf, and Kill the King.

"Rust in Peace" and "Countdown to Extinction" - Is all youll ever need.

As for the albums they released after around 1992 - Try to imagine they never happened. :(

WarrenM 05-06-2008 03:58 PM

Re: Megadeth
 
Dude ... some of their recent stuff is great! After 1992, let's see... I loved some of the stuff on "Cryptic Writings" and I really like "The System Has Failed". Some great metal on that album.

But yeah, some weak sauce as well, no question.

Ben Tormey 05-06-2008 04:07 PM

Re: Megadeth
 
I have to say the only reason I listened to "The System Has Failed" is it had Vinnie playing!

Big Chris 05-06-2008 07:14 PM

Re: Megadeth
 
So far, So good......So what!

Has to be the best Megadeth album. R.I.P is also great. IMO they started to slide after R.I.P.


Killing is my business....And business is good. Blows. I mean, 'These boots are made for walking'!!!! Dave!!!! What were you thinking!!!

I still remember that day back in '94 when I walked into a local music store knowing spat about metal, and I wanted to listen to it so bad that I picked up an album that caught my eye: Countdown to Extinction by Megadeth.

Even though I don't listen to them that much nowadays, that album is the one that got me into metal, and there are no signs of ever quitting.

So yeah, everything from the 80's is a must listen, and, of course, Countdown.

The...why exactly are you here on this thread?
If you have no positive things for Megadeth, just don't post at all...

All due respect and everything, I just dont like it when people do that.

Ok i'm going to buck the trend here, I think "youthinasia" is an excellent album. Of course I think rust in peace and countdown to exctinction are brilliant as well, but everyone has already mentioned them already lol. I also like listening to a lot of the songs off the latest 3 albums as well, "the system has failed", "United Abominations" and "Endgame". Maybe not your "classic" megadeth but i think they're good if you're into your metal music. Also got to agree about Dave, he really is the sort of vocalist you either hate, or can just about tolerate LOL.

I agree. Megadeth's sound did change over the years but they are still a great band. I love their early stuff but I like Cryptic Writings and A World Needs A Hero too. Even though I can pick out some things I like on it, Risk is probably my least favorite.

Spot on mate, easily their best album and they should get back on Heroin because they never wrote as good an album as this..........every track is a monster...

Duckenheimer 05-10-2011 04:57 PM

Re: Megadeth
 
The remastered version of Peace Sells and the original version of Rust In Peace are my two favourite.

I have to agree. Why read, think, type, post, check back (usually for the possibilty of inciting an online argument) and expose yourself to threads that do not interest you.

I love Megadeth and have been a fan since about '88. My favorite lineup is of course the countdown crew. Best albums for me are..
-countdown
-rest i. peace
-peace sells
-youthanasia
-cryptic writings

Re: Megadeth
 
Peace Sells is my fav. Gar Sams drumming on that record was sensational. R.I.P GAR

I fully agree - Gar Samuelson was a great skilled drummer with jazz background.

Rock In Peace - Gar!
