October brings Megadeth fans a career spanning collection of tunes housed in a ‘Warchest’ that’s handpicked by Megadeth founder and front man Dave Mustaine.
This set contains four CDs of music and one DVD of highlights 1992 concert recorded at the Hammersmith Odeon in London. Disc four of the set is a 75-minute set from the 1990 “Clash of the Titans” Tour at Wembley Stadium.
The set also features 30 tracks that have been previously unreleased as well as three that are making their U.S. debuts (“Architect of Aggression [demo],” “One Thing,” and “Coming Home”) and a total of 68 musical tracks are presented and 10 tracks of live performances on the DVD.
Since this is a career spanning set the band has had a change of band members during the years, beginning in 1983, but Mustaine has been the driving force behind the band as well as this box set.
The box has the look of an ammo belt, a 36-page booklet, and a discography with tons of photos. This box is a treasure trove for the band’s fans and sure to please those Deth-heads that decide to lock and load.
