MEGADETH The Arsenal of Megadeth
Capitol 94633 09329 (2006)
Metal masterclass...


This DVD is timely given that many of the errant pretenders to the metal crown cite Mustaine's Men as an inspiration. On their recent tour Trivium were not averse to including 'Symphony of Destruction' in their set.

'Arsenal of Megadeth' is a fan's dream, a two disc trawl through the band's back pages right up to last year's Gigantour.

The video material from the band's MTV heyday merely reinforces their contribution to the metal genre, and their credentials as masters of four minute thrash, wonderful riffing, and consummate shredding.


There is interview footage, home video, even trailers for some of their albums. Click on after the 1990 titling and you'll also find rare footage of the great Marty Friedman's first run-out with the band.

The live concert footage here is less than satisfying and by its nature often with poor audio quality, and with only two tracks from the 2005 tour. Perhaps in the future the full length concert will emerge unedited.

But essentially 'Arsenal' is a rollercoaster snapshot of a great band, good for dipping in to, and to see the benchmark for all that followed, including modern masters Trivium and In Flames.

** Instant bargain bin fodder | * Ugly. Just ugly
