Megadeth

RELEASE DATE: 8th June 2018


The story of Dave Mustaine’s fights with Metallica, which ultimately led to the birth of his own band MEGADETH is basic knowledge of every metal head out there and nothing that’s necessary to revisit when talking about the debut assault “Killing Is My Business...And Business Is Good!”. It was, is and forever will be one hell of an aggressive, no-holds-barred, maniacal speed/thrash record that now returns in its ultimate version! From the new artwork, which finally sees Mustaine’s original vision fully realized as an actual sculpture to the brilliant remix by Mark Lewis (Trivium, Devil Driver, Whitechapel), which restores previously unheard parts and performances, allowing you to experience this album with a whole new level of details and notably increased sonic force. Featuring an introduction by Mustaine, live recordings covering all album songs and the original 1984 “Skull Beneath The Skin” demo, the 2018 edition of “Killing Is My Business...And Business Is Good!” is a must for each and every MEGADETH fan! Now, rattle your goddamn head!
