Megadeth, This is Holland


Guitar, Silhouette, Rock, Heavy Metal, Rock 'N' Roll

One of the most influential thrash metal band, Megadeth announced a European tournee in the beginning of 2020. They are working now at the successor of “Dystopia” (2016) so there is a chance to see Dave Mustain with fresh repertoire.

Current line-up:

– Dave Mustaine (vocals, guitars); Megadeth leader and member from the beginning

– David Ellefson (bass); Megadeth member from the beginning

– Kiko Loureiro (guitars) from Brazil; also known from playing in Angra and in Tarja (ex-Nightwish)

– Dirk Verbeuren (drums) probably from Belgium; joined Megadeth after “Dystopia”; also known from The Project Hate MCMXCIX

To make sure that everybody is on the same boat: Megadeth is not a new child of Five Finger Death Punch, but one among four largest thrash metal powerhouses under the sun. This band exists since 1983 and has released 15 longplays. Especially “Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?” (1986) and “Rust in Peace” (1990) are masterpieces which each metal fan ought to know (reminder for younger readers).

The newest Megadeth album “Dystopia” (2016) is a highlight of their discography. Politically engaged, massive, creative and energetic music. In my opinion, the compositions are more interesting on “Dystopia” than on “Th1rt3en” (2011) and “Supper Collider” (2013). I would add that “Dystopia” is a bigger achievement than:

– Slayer: “World Painted Blood” (2009) and “Repentless” (2015);

– Anthrax: “For All Kings” (2016);

– Metallica: everything after “Black Album” so: “Load” (1996), “Reload” (1997), “St. Anger” (2003), “Death Magnetic” (2008), “Hardwired… To Self – Destruct” (2016).
