About Megadeth

Megadeath, an American heavy metal band, formed in Los Angeles. The founder of the band is vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine. The band was formed with a strong lineup in 1983. Dave Mustaine initiated to form Megadeth after leaving one of the best heavy metal bands Metallica. Megadeth is very famous for its technical and experimental music. The band’s lyrics often explain the prevailing ugly politics, war, bloodshed and relationships. Although Megadeth is a great heavy metal band, it had to suffer a lot with heavy lineup changes. More than 20 musicians have worked in the band at different times. But Mustaine and Ellefson were solid members of the band.

After leaving Metallica, Mustaine came up with strong feeling to form a great metal band and found guitarist Greg Handevidt, Ellefson and drummer Dijon Carruthers. The band seriously practiced and worked in studios. And it toured a lot to get publicity. Afterwards, it signed up with independent label Combat Records.

Megadeth’s “Killing Is My Business..’ got sold-out fine which was a debut album and it had been an independent release. “Peace Sells... but Who's Buying?” had become the band’s 1st major production. And in 1990 Megadeth produced “Rust in Peace”. Soon Megadeth became commercially much hit. Its fans were not only found in the U.S alone. The band could gain very good popularity in UK and many other parts of the world. The next album “Countdown to Extinction” could become number two on Billboard 200 Albums chart. This was the first release by Megadeth which was certified platinum by RIAA. “Youthanasia” was released in 1994 and it became top on the Billboard 200. With the passage of time it released “Risk”, “The World Needs a Hero”, and a number of popular singles.

The joining of Marty Friedman was a great thing for the band as Marty Fridman was a great guitar player and music composer. Megadeth is still one of the finest choices by the heavy metal music lovers and recommended one for understanding solid and improvised metal.
