Quien no ha oido hablar alguna vez de megadeth? Para mi, el grupo de trash por excelencia. Junto al Rust in Peace y ahora el nuevo álbum Dystopia, Countdown to extinction és de los mejores albumes del grupo.

Todas las canciones són un festival de Riffs duros típicos del trash metal más puro, y de solos de guitarra y bases de bajo increibles. Si además le añadimos la voz "pesada" (en el buen sentido de la palabra) de Dave Mustaine, tenemos una auténtica obra maestra del género.

Respecto a los riffs ya mencionados anteriormente, podemos destacar el de la mítica "Symphony of destruction" o "sweating Bullets", que en este disco podemos disfrutar a tope. El baterista Nick Menza [Descansa en paz, Nick :(] nos demuestra un increible repertorio de ritmos con la bateria, ideales para las canciones de este género, con esos canvios de ritmo extraordinarios y precisos.

En conclusión, un disco que todo amante del Trash deberia tener en su colección. My top 3 de canciones és:

3- Skin o' my teeth
2- Symphony of destruction
1- Sweating Bullets (obra maestra vocal)

On the Spanish Edition of this LP, the song This Was My Life is missing, it appears on the sleeve of the album but the song is not listed on the label, and Side A ends with Sweating Bullets, so it is only 10 songs, not 11.

For a Picture disc, it sounds pretty damn good. And i might get rocks thrown at me for saying that, but the remaster souds like a ton of bricks!

Dave Mustaine rage for his cousins Metallica success had always been like gasoline for the motor of his creativity. The continue competition pushed forward every limit of thrash metal music: aggression, speed, structural complexity and melodic research. After the storm generated by Metallica black album, Mustaine tried to fight Ulrich & Co. in melodic territory, slowing the vortex of riffs and simplifying the architectural complexity of the songs, in search of the perfect mid tempo riff to headbang and easy listening melodies to sing in live concerts. The result is a good album - great at times! - of classical heavy metal with the typical shrill and metallic Megadeth sound. But there is no trace of Mustaine schizophrenic lightning: so the magic of the past faded away looking for commercial success.

This is for anyone that's given this a low rating, how does the MoFi pressing sound quality-wise?
