EDITORS’ NOTES

Getting booted from Metallica may have been the best thing that ever happened to Dave Mustaine. Since he founded Megadeth, the band has achieved thrash immortality thanks to their razor-sharp guitar screeches, breakneck chops, and politically charged imagery. On the 1990 landmark Rust in Peace, a growling Mustaine drips bleak nihilism over deliriously complex songs already soaked in primal fury. At times, the singer/guitarist has pushed the group toward a slower, simpler kind of heavy metal, but as 2016's Dystopia proves, Megadeth always return to their roots in gory, anti-everything thrash.
