Megadeth, smegadeth? Have you ever read Mustaines lyrics? Go check
out peace sells, who"s buying? No other metal band at that time was
doing anyting political - it was all about fantasypooh knights riding, blades swinging I am the hero crap. It was punk and hardcore bands that were filling the political void, not metal. Megadeth is still real and excellent musicians to boot even though I'll admit I never cared much for Mustaine's vocal style which reminded me too much of Iron maiden.
I still love Megadeth~ People don't give Dave Mustaine enough props
for the lyrics he was writing way back - very dark/political. i'm glad he
left Metallica who never sang a song that meant anything. Mustaine's
lyrics were anti NWO when nobody even know it existed, very prophetic as it turns out.
I saw that Megadeth was doing some dates wtih Slayer, flashback to
20 years ago when I saw them together. What amazing bands still.

I'm not into the Megadeth artwork that much it's well-done, but a bit cheesy. Pretty sure that Vic Rattlehead hasn't been used because of a dispute with the artist Ed Repka.
Whatever the Mustaine issues, I think they really lost the plot AFTER R.I.P. (which was a total benchmark), but lyrically they're very interesting still.
I think Metallica are getting knocked because they seem unable to produce good work anymore...
Master Of Puppets, I actually think was more relevant to Hetfield's addiction problems, especially the line "Chop your breakfast on a mirror" - lyrically "...and Justice for all" is a decent ATS themed album.
