After their sensational last output "Super Collider" (2013), Dave Mustaine is back with David Ellefson, Chris Adler (LAMB OF GOD) and guitarist Kiko Loureiro (ANGRA) – and with a new studio album. The output will be named "Dystopia" and has been recorded at the beginning of the year in Nashville, Tennessee. Dave Mustaine and Toby Wright (ALICE IN CHAINS, KORN) produced the album while the mixing was taken over by Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, ALL THAT REMAINS, GOJIRA, etc.). The legend has returned and proves that they still belong to the best of the genre.
Perfect. Just perfect.
Perhaps the long time dream of Dave Mustaine to top his ex-bandmates from METALLICA is going to be finally fulfilled with the latest MEGADETH effort. “Dystopia† has in perfect measures everything that made MEGADETH the force to be reckoned with. Great catchy melodies, over-the-top musicianship, perfect production, you name it. Their new guitarist Kiko Loureiro from ANGRA fitted into the band as if they were playing years and years together, moreover the tracks penned by him are very hard to distinguish from Dave’s ones not having the songwriting credits in front of your eyes. The chemistry is absolute. I have no idea how “Dystopia† sounds in digital, but on the good old vinyl its just a monster. The artwork is also much more convincing on LP format. Top grade.
