Review of "Rust in Peace - Megadeth"
Megadeth-one of the most accomplished heavy metallers in the buisness, released this album in 1990. This is by far their best album. The band have had many changes but the line up in this album was: Dave Mustaine (vocals, guitar), David Ellefson (bass), Marty Friedman (guitars), Nick Menza (drums). This is a true thrash masterpiece and probably the best thrash metal album of all time, 'Master Of Puppets' and 'Reign In Blood' by Metallica and Slayer close behind.Holy Wars...The Punishment Due (6.36) This song is trully amazing, the guitars galloping first riff, and the perfectly worked lead work amazingly well together. Mustaine's sarcastic singing voice then come's in singing about how pointless orgonized religion is and about endless holy wars. Then Friedman plays a beautiful acoustic solo out of nowhere wich fits brilliantly into the song. Then next a powerfull interlude, and many solo's courtesy of Friedman and Mustaine. The last line of the song is classic 'next thing you know, they'll take my thoughts away', absolutley classic!
Hangar 18 (5.14) This is a guitar infested riot. The chord rhythm intro is very well written and the lead/verse sounds amazing and very original. The first solo here is very well written and very fast. The bass and drums are good but there seem's almost no point to them once the guitars start on their galloping sprint to the finish solos. The lyrics here are very good also, singing about hangar 18, area 51, and the supposed secret base where aliens are being tested on.
Five Magics (5.42) This is another classic wich starts with some lightning fast riff's. Then the rather twisted sounding lead kicks in wich is very well written to accompany the bass and drums. There is an amazing bass line here also, courtesy of David Ellefson! Then in kicks the tempo and the guitars start flowing their solos. They sound perfect along with the thrashy riffs played. This song has many time changes, and many solo's wich I love and why this is my favorite track on the album.
Lucretia (3.58) An evil laugh beggining this one, before the very melodic intro played by Mustaine. The lyrics are somehwat poor, with Dave singing about a ghost in his cellar! But the whole musical side of this song is amazing, with the solo being the best on the whole album.
Dawn Patrol (1.50) I never listen to this, just a bass line and drums, with some weird vocals. Its the most pointless things I've ever heard! And it's quite disappointing thats such a pointless thing could make it onto one of the best metal albums ever!
