Megadeth are pound for pound a better band than Metallica. They have released consistently high quality albums for over 30 years. In my opinion there has never been a bad Megadeth album. Dave Mustaine is a true rock god, love him or hate him it cannot be denied that he is ‘Far Beyond Driven’ and his energy, determination and drive are an inspiration to us all.
The release of Rust In Peace kicked off an amazingly prolific and lucrative 3 album run for Megadeth that saw, against all odds, a band this heavy achieving huge commercial success. I saw this album as a sign that Dave was getting over Metallica and really coming into his own.
