Megadeth has over the past few years made it a habit of performing some of their most iconic albums in their entirety live. Megadeth started it all back in 2010 with the 20th Anniversary of Rust In Peace. They then followed it up with a tour performing Countdown to Extinction in its entirety to rave reviews from fans and critics alike. The band followed that up with the amazing Super Collider album that had them making the best metal album since Iron Maiden’s Virtual XI. So where does Megadeth go from here? Well leave it to Over The Top Metal News to tell you all before anyone!
Our Arizona based correspondent Jim McGovney recently ran into Dave Mustaine in the produce aisle of Fry’s Grocery Store in Glendale, AZ and after giving Megadave himself the opportunity to pick out the perfect butternut squash approached him to try and get some 411 on what Megadeth has been up to. After Mustaine grilled Jim on his grocery choices and ridiculed him for the abundance of Poptarts in his cart, he was very excited to share some amazing news with him.
“Megadeth has been trying to figure out how to take everything to the next level. What can Megadeth do that will truly wow the fans and blow their minds? We’re going to be hitting the road in November and we’ll be performing Kill ‘Em All in its entirety.”
Jim reminded Mustaine that Kill ‘em All was actually a Metallica album to which Mustaine replied, “I know that dipshit. Maybe if you didn’t eat so many Poptarts you wouldn’t be so stupid. As you know, every song on Kill ‘em All I had a hand in creating so needless to say it might as well be a Megadeth album played by third rate imposters. Metallica can’t even play Kill ‘Em All so why not let a band who can actually pull it off do so? Have you accepted Jesus Christ as your personal savior?”
Awkwardly Jim said, “Look! Lars Ulrich!” and when Mustaine turned to look he ducked into the cereal aisle. Over The Top Metal News will have more on this developing story as soon as we can run into Dave Ellifson at one of his worship band’s performances.
