Reseña de álbum

The release of 2009's Endgame brings with it a startling realization: if first-generation thrash metal fans had been polled about which of the genre's "Big Four" — Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, and Megadeth — would prove to be the most resilient and consistently prolific over the next quarter century, the only sure-fire consensus would probably have been "well, anyone but Megadeth!" And yet, 12 studio albums and 150-plus songs later — more than any of the other three have managed — that's exactly what's come to pass. It hasn't been easy, and it's rarely been pretty along the way, but despite a few weak efforts, mostly self-inflicted controversy, and no end to verbal diarrhea, none of those other platinum-busting thrash titans have been as productive as Dave Mustaine's bunch — all of which stands as a testament to the man's stubborn drive to prolong Megadeth's career against all odds, including drug abuse, his unfulfilled vengeance against Metallica, and even a religious reawakening! Of course, one shouldn't overlook the fact that Megadeth have always been a band in name only, thus allowing their leader to cope with voices of dissent by simply showing them the door. The "group" was also broken up for a short spell in the early 2000s while Mustaine recovered from nerve damage to his hands, after which he struggled with inspiration, creative direction, and a never-ending parade of henchmen before finally recovering much of that old Megadeth "mojo" (sonically, lyrically, and even where the cover art was concerned) on 2007's effective return to form, United Abominations. Best of all, this momentum carries on into Mustaine and company's second release for Roadrunner, Endgame, whose title apparently refers to "coming full circle" rather than any sort of goodbye, and finds the latest iteration of Megadeth — debuting new guitarist Chris Broderick(ex-Nevermore, Jag Panzer) — working primarily within their technical thrash comfort zone (think Peace Sells through Rust in Peace), with only a few latter-day elements and rare experimental diversions.

As such, deceptively simple guitar-shredding master classes like "This Day We Fight!," "1,320" (surprisingly, written about "funny car" racing), and first single "Headcrusher" are cut from the same bloody cloth as "Wake Up Dead" and "Set the World Afire," while politicized rants such as "44 Minutes," "Bite the Hand That Feeds," and the title cut recall old stalwarts like "Peace Sells" and "Holy Wars." And for those who enjoyed Megadeth's early-'90s shift away from incessant thrashing toward the more "civilized" (but pre-sellout) Countdown to Extinction and Youthanasia albums, there are more methodical and melodically sweetened cuts like "Bodies Left Behind," "How the Story Ends," and "The Right to Go Insane." Indeed, the only song here that breaks entirely from vintage Megadeth templates is the elaborately named "The Hardest Part of Letting Go...Sealed with a Kiss," which surely owes its orchestrated string backdrops to the European metal perspective afforded by producer Andy Sneap, and tells a "love story" about entombing one's beloved behind a brick wall à la Edgar Allan Poe's The Cask of Amontillado. This one anomaly notwithstanding, however, Endgame is arguably the least commercially concerned Megadeth album since Rust in Peace some 20 years earlier, and by touching on so many of the favored songwriting styles of those early years, it should not only give their typically opinionated fan base very little to kvetch and moan about, but also throw new fuel upon the flames of Megadeth's unlikely longevity.

A MUST HAVE!!! (even if you are not a Megadeth fan, which is blasphemy!)

Yet again, I am amazed by Dave Mustaine's genius... Endgame is one of my favorites from the great Megadeth, coming in at numbah 4 tied with the 2007 masterpiece, United Abominations. The only albums i would say are better than this are: 1. Rust in Peace, 2. Killing is my business... and business is good!, 3. Peace Sells... But who's buying? I would go on, but would rather get down to the new work, Endgame... I give it an 11/10, because of the way Mustaine combines the new and old to make something amazing. Definitely the shining album of this year! A MUST BUY!

Their Best Work

This album has it all. Amazing solos, amazing lyrics, amazing drumming, and pretty much everything you could ask for.

Wooo... Never saw this return to old school thrash awesomeness coming!!!

I admit to being a Megadeth fan since 1987, and the recent efforts were loved because of fond memories of Peace Sells, Rust, and So Far... I bought this like I buy every Megadeth album, but one listen driving into work this morning and I was frickin grinning from ear to ear - Dave has really returned to old school form. To me, this album is like a winning lotto ticket - I hoped it would be awesome but expected less. I would say its perfect blend of So Far... (compare Dialectic Choas to Into Lungs of Hell - like fricking awesome stripper twin sisters.. both hot as hell and worthy of drool) and Rust.. seriously... a sick surprising return to form and I am the winner here. Get it. Now.

Biografía

Género: Rock

Años de actividad: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

After he left Metallica in 1983, guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine formed the thrash metal quartet Megadeth. Though Megadeth followed the basic blueprint of Metallica's relentless attack, Mustaine's group distinguished themselves from his earlier band by lessening the progressive rock influences, adding an emphasis on instrumental skills, speeding up the tempo slightly, and making the instrumental attack harsher. By streamlining the classic thrash metal approach and making the music more threatening,...
