Is it generally understood that most Megadeth fans didn't like Endgame? Just wondering because I love that album, and IMO it's the closest they've came to the RIP sound in recent years.

its actually generally understood that most people liked endgame. 13 and Super Collider are the recent albums that I believe most people did not love.

13 was crap and I still haven't even gotten around to hearing (let alone buying) Super Collider.
Endgame was pretty decent considering what happened before and after.

That's really why I was highly disappointed with 13 and Supercollider. Endgame had me very excited for what was to come. Also, I feel like a lot of people in this thread were dumping on endgame a couple pages ago IIRC.

Actually 13 was decent I thought, as was United Abominations.

I was listening to TSHF the other day, and I've always liked that album, but I thought to myself, "This is the best record Dave has ever done, tied w/ Peace Sells..."


It occurred to me that Dave makes the best music when he's in a struggle... his success brings complacency, which leads to mediocre material. A few years ago, Megadeth was a really hot band, more desired than any of the other "Big 4." Once that success got to Dave's head, the quality of music really started to suffer.

It's strange that the things Dave always seems to chase- mainstream recognition, #1 albums, etc- are the things that take him further from his rightful place in the metal community.

Has anybody heard SuperCollider? I heard some snippets from the title track, but that was it. What are the other songs like?

with the exception of dancing in the rain, I found it meh. dancing in the rain is a damn good song and Broderick actually had a good solo in it.

It's an underwhelming album, but it honestly isn't as horrible as some people would have you think. It certainly isn't Endgame or even Thirteen for that matter. It's definitely not their heaviest album. There's a couple of ok songs but Dave's voice sounds just terrible through the whole thing. I think they did a good job with the Thin Lizzy cover, which was also pretty good when I saw them live last month. On the whole, I was disappointed and I'm really just waiting for the next one...

I wasn't so keen on Super Collider, especially after how good the album 13 was. But I will give it a few more listens just to make sure.

Super Collider is average at best but Megadeth is still the best metal band out there. I've seen all the most successful metal bands and Megadeth blows them all away. What makes them so good is they are like Tool in that a lot of their music gets better the more you listen to it.

Megadeth put on a concert that blew Metallica, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Anthrax etc. all out of the water by sounding amazing, playing with energy and playing with technical proficiency. Same can't be said for most metal bands out there. I'll be back in this thread in 10 years still listening to Rust in Peace

I've seen Megadeth play in a festival sharing the bill with all those bands, I missed (most of) Anthrax and Motorhead, Deth were tighter than Sabbath or Metallica, but both put on wayyyy better shows, and had more energy. I've seen Megadeth since at a really good venue, with probably the best mixing I've heard and no doubt the best visuals, yet even with both times seeing them put together, doesn't even scratch the surface of Sabbath live.


Incase anyone was wondering RIP is an :IMMENSELY: better album than Peace sells, why? Holy Wars, Hangar 18, No Prisoners, Five Magics, Tornado of Souls, Dawn Patrol and Polaris. Lucretia and Poison are great tracks too, but I think the ones mentioned above are amongst the best Megadeth has ever pushed out.

yeah megadeths lives right now arent as memorable as many other bands particularly because the only one with some presence on stage is ellefson. Mustaine stands at his mic in the middle, and occasionally moves away to do little headbang and solo. Brodericks has a bit more presence but he still looks alot like hes following the choreography, unlike ellefson who follows the choreography naturally. and drover, well, hes drover. its not much to get the crowd all hyped.

Metallica(this isnt a bash or whatever) to me has the best live show around because of the presence of all the members and the energy brought to the crowd, the immense setlist catalog, and the different stages. You never know what youll get and every show is different.

Id very much like to see Megadeth vary up the setlists more. Mustaine could stop his "oh but theres so many songs" attitude and relearn some more songs from late 90s and 00s that arent A tout le monde and trust. the change to D tuning was a good move to improve live shows, but theres clearly more room to improve.

I recently saw Megadeth in PA and they came with Fear Factory and NON-Point. Loved Fear Factory and Non-Point was ok. Megadeth was just amazing. They are such great musicians. Mustaine played and sang with such passion -- I was impressed. The only negative IMO is the set list. I just want to see a more diverse set list. I would kill to see them do songs like Black Friday, The Conjuring, Chosen Ones, Addicted to Choas, etc....Just play some songs that aren't the norm. Broderick has GREAT stage presence as does Mustaine IMO. Can't wait to see them again...

I only just realised that Set The World Afire has no chorus whatsoever - it goes through a whole bunch of twists and turns, almost to the point of being 'progressive', but never repeats any lyrics or riffs. Are there any other Megadeth songs like that?

I personally liked Super Collider. Beginning of sorrow, built for war, dance in the rain, cold sweat are all awesome songs. I think with the song super collider they wanted to have a radio friendly single to promote their album. Cold sweat was a treat for me too because I never heard the original song and I loved it.

Maybe the reason why I like the album so much is because it kind of reminds me of The World Needs A Hero which is a favorite of mine.

Youthanasia is bad ass and when I read about how Dave got the album done in his book it broke my heart a little bit because every song on that album is awesome. He was fighting with the band and wasn't really feeling good about life so the way he words it is just like Youthanasia was thrown together. It doesn't sound like that to me but who cares it kicks ass.

The only album I didn't like was risk but breadline is still a pretty good song.

Hey guys! Just uploaded this pro shot footage of me playing Hangar 18 by Megadeth. I learned a lot of the solos by ear, as the tabs here aren't that accurate. Would anybody be interested in me tabbing out the song in Guitar Pro?
