Short Megadeth post~
some people are die hard Megadeth fans, i'm not one of them. Truth be told I'm not overly fond of thrash in general, that being said however sometimes theres a scratch that only some Megadeth can itch.
Hanger 18 I think is my favourite, the video definitely plays a part into that though, its this super 80s over the top cheesy roswell story with kickass costumes and effects and shit and over top of it all you got these flailing guitars and clean vocals with just a slight grungy edge, solid bass and drum work as well. the groove around ~2:49 is super funky
speaking of itches that need to be scratched Use The Man is a song about heroin addiction
its super raw feeling though and reminds me of alice in chains at times, especially at the start. by the end though its back to full on megadeth. i like the call and response that they use for the chorus where its as though the dude talks to himself in the different vocal styles, ive had conversations with someone in the mirror like that a few times on shrooms. nothing as dark though, anyway another good song though~
it wouldnt be a megadeth post without Peace Sells though, classic track off the 2002 album Vice city soundtrack :3
The intro is 100% amazing. i quote it out of context all the time and nobody catches it ;_; but the first half is basically disgruntlement rolled up into a groovy paste and extrapolated on and the climax is an explosion of all that energy with obvious political and social overtones. very fitting for GTA
turns out there are more megadeth songs that i like than i thought now that i'm actually going through them all...
heres Tornado Of Souls. good driving song if you need to fly down the highway at way too fast. the instrumentals are on point with a great solo ~3:10
I'm gonna close this out with another classic, Rust In Peace...Polaris, i'm pretty sure the premise is there is a space station (Polaris) with a nuclear arsenal that it then unleashes on the world to usher in a new age of ice and death. spreading disease like a dog. Fun stuff
