Editors’ Notes

Thirty years after Dave Mustaine put together Megadeth following his infamous stint as Metallica's lead guitarist, he's returned with Megadeth's 14th studio album, a mix of the thrash he pioneered and other hard rock styles. After the expected high-speed chase through synthetic-opiate addiction in "Kingmaker," Mustaine does the nearly unthinkable and slows the band down for the arena-rock challenge of the title track. "Built for War," however, returns with a gnarled and twisted riff that's sure to confound the legions of guitar warriors who see Mustaine's leads as challenges to be mastered. "Dance in the Rain" contains a few monologues and a guest vocal from Disturbed's David Draiman among the nearly danceable rhythms: a far cry from the abrasive militia attack of his best-known work. "The Blackest Crow" adds a banjo (!) to a tune nearly suited for an Appalachian murder ballad. A cover of Thin Lizzy's "Cold Sweat" is an inspired choice and much closer to Megadeth's current sound than anything from its debut album 30 years ago.

Customer Reviews

Not Traditional Megadeth, but a Great Album In My Opinion

Lots of people were hating on this album, and I don't see why, it may not be like what they have done before, but why would you want it to be, it would get boring. I like the style of the album, and just the overall feel. Another great work from Megadeth.


AMAZING ALBUM. Dave still hasn't lost his touch!

The most inconsistent band in metal.....

Is by far Megadeth. I can't begin to describe how disappointed I am in this album. 13 was in my opinion a fantastic semi return to form with riffs and that snarl in Dave's voice that we all love. Endgame as well. But this? This is I guess Dave's Risk part 2. It's bad. I know David Dramin had something to do with this and it shows. No riffs or hooks and I don't know what Dave is doing with his voice. I know there will never be another "Rust" or "killing is my business...." But I just can't believe this is the same band anymore.

Genre: Metal

Years Active: '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,...
