First things first, this is not just a best of, this is a selection of 35 tracks to celebrate the 35th anniversary of this legendary band, with the track list selected by Mr Dave Mustaine, believing that these tracks are the “most efficient weapons in the band’s arsenal.” Having selected tracks from every release from debut album Killing Is My Business … And Business Is Good through to the most recent Dystopia, here we have the definitive selection of pure genius from one of The Big Four.

This celebration of the awesome work produced by this monumental cornerstone of Rock history really displays the vast array of quality material that we have had the honour and privilege of enjoying whilst we wait for the upcoming release which is expected sometime this year.

My advice before beginning to experience this collection is to treat yourself, set some time aside, get a neck brace ready and crank up the volume. With the majority of tracks having been remixed since their initial recording, the true intricacies and attention to detail can really be heard and appreciated. The guitar work at times is mind blowing and hypnotising, as the drums lead the pace of the tracks perfectly whilst the bass provides the perfect tones for all the tracks.

As we wing our way at breakneck speed through tracks including ‘Holy Wars … The Punishment Due,’ ‘A Toute Le Monde’ and ‘Symphony Of Destruction’ it is easy to see why this band have been at the top of the pecking order for so long. They have consistently produced top drawer music over an extended period of time whilst also remaining relevant and providing the soundtrack to so many lives.

This selection of tracks is either a celebration or an education, depending on your Megadeth experience. There are bound to be some incredible memories attached to certain songs for any Megadeth fan, whilst any newcomers to the band will instantly understand why this band are one of the most important bands in Rock and Metal history.

Warheads On Foreheads is a must have for any Rock or Metal or fan of any sub-genre of either and is an important lesson in the timeline that is heavy music. Dave and the band have their sights set on the target and this selection of tracks is only a ‘so far’ in the chronicles of Megadeth. Be prepared to be blown to pieces by this incredible collection of work.
