Sanctuary's first two albums are classics. Also Metal Church and Reverend.

Megadeth puts in a great show! Saw them in '99 at Ozzfest along with Coal Chamber, Soulfly, Limp Bizkit, Tool and of course Ozzy

I'm not a big Megadeth fan (haven't bought any of their stuff since Countdown to Extinction), but I'd have to say on The Big Four blu-ray I think they put on the best show. Much thicker, more aggressive sound live than their albums.

Ha! Interesting.... I have the opposite impressions. To me they are the weakest of the 4 on the disk, they sound the thinnest to me. Still not bad don't get me wrong, I think all 4 bands sound great.

Slayer sounds really good but I can't stand the sagging poop in the (leather) pants look that Hanneman is sporting.

It's subjective. We all like who we like. I have always thought Megadeth has the best catalog. Hands down. Plus you can damn near add Metallica's Kill Em All to his catalog as well. Their new cd that just released is easily in their top 5. As far as the Big 4 goes, slip in Exodus in place of Anthrax. Or maybe the Big 5. Exodus's latest cd "Blood in Blood Out" is incredible. And it might be the best sounding metal cd I've ever played through my system. Wish they remaster all the old classics like this!
As far as thin sounding???? Don't judge any of those bands based on a video.
I saw back to back nights when Megadeth and Slayer toured together. The one where they played Rust in Peace and Seasons in the Abyss in their entirety. SF and Sacramento the next night. Megadeth sounded better than Slayer in SF, where as Slayer sounded better than Megadeth in Sacramento. The venues? Either way they both kicked ass both nights.

No, no, I wasn't doing that. I was just saying how our impressions can be completely different from a single disk, nothing more - and like I said all 4 bands sound great on that disk to me.

I love all these bands and I'm certainly not judging Megadeth on that concert disk, I own so much Megadeth - including concert disks. I bought everything Megadeth put out up to and including Risk. I absolutely LOVED and still LOVE the Rust in Peace album. All time great metal album, a masterpiece. Countdown was very good and they kind of lost my interest a bit after that but I've never thought bad of them. I've seen them twice and had a great time at both concerts (99 Ozzfest and a couple of years ago opening for Maiden).

Yep, we all have our favorites and for me it's Lightning, Puppets, and Justice not necessarily in that order. That doesn't mean I don't love the other bands too though.

Thinniest "sound", yes. But the band sounded more cohesive and the rhythms much heavier than on the album. I think it has to do with how much Megadeth surprised me, because I was expecting them to be the least metal of the four. But songs like Holy Wars, were much better than the album version. They're the only band that actually gave me chills on that video. I knew some of their early songs from Rust and Peace Sells were brilliant, and I always knew Mustaine was a great songwriter, but they just never had the heaviness to excite me. But that heaviness came out live. It turned me on to watching some of their other live performances. So I bought their blu-ray "Rust In Peace" at the Hollywood Palladium and it was good too. Now I'll never be able to go back to their album versions. And I've always thought Chris Broderick was one of the better lead guitarists in metal.

Slayer is normally my favorite of those four - they're the heaviest and most evil-sounding - and I liked them 2nd best on the video. I like early Anthrax, but realistically only Spreading the Disease and Among the Living. I thought they did a good job. I'm not crazy about their singer. And Metallica, while sounding good on the vid hasn't done anything for me since the Black album. I think they did a good job playing their old songs. I guess I've heard those songs SO many times, they don't excite me any more.

Countdown was my favorite, but that's when I got into them. Youthanasia was the last one I bought, but like Countdown better. Great stage presence

Since you have the Live Rust in Peace dvd, at the beginning when you first put the disc in. Where you have play, options, extras..... the last two pics that scroll are me and my buddy. We were on the rail at that show and they show us during every song of that video. Lol

IMHO, the new Megadeth record Dystopia is quite good. It captures that classic sound from the earlier albums (but not a rehash).

You should check out the 2004 remastered version of Rust In Peace. Many remastered disks are crap but this one gives it a much fuller sound, I think you would really like it.

Smitty... if you lived closer I would make you come over and watch Through The Never.

The sound quality is sooooo much better than the big 4, or anything else I've heard from a metal band on any blu ray disk. To top it off it's in 2:35:1 so it fills my whole screen. When they play Orion at the end credits in front of an empty stadium sounds incredible. The sound is perfect.











And Justice for All doesn't suck either....

Nice! I wish this was on Blu Ray.... DVD's look like crap on my screen.

I assume you are a big Maiden fan. You would have loved seeing Megadeth and Maiden together, one of the best shows I've seen in a very long time. I want Bruce's energy.... what a show they put on.

I love Countdown too, but for me the difference between it and Rust in Peace was similar to the difference between the Black album and Justice. One is damn good and easily accessible and the other is a masterpiece and not nearly as accessible.

One of my favorite shows was the "Clash of the Titans" tour in '91 - Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax with Alice In Chains opening up. I was super happy to finally see Slayer again last year. I'm trying to talk the wife into getting me tickets for my birthday for Slayer/Testament (probably my two favorites) later this month. She said - didn't we just see them? I said, so what - it's Slayer!!!


Everyone needs to see Between the Buried & Me live. Their early albums are a little rough sounding (sound quality wise) for me. Parallax II and Coma Ecliptic are both awesome, but their live shows are incredible. Something about the vibe and energy takes them over the top for me. Of course, I get to see them where they originated so maybe they give a little more here. I live in a pretty good area for metal. I swear I've seen more bands in my 40's than I've seen in the rest of my life combined. Raleigh and Charlotte are a little over an hour away and both Greensboro and Winston Salem have decent venues for the smaller acts. Heck Gwar and Fear Factory played the same night - unfortunately one at each venue.

A friend @beastaudio lives in your area and he's been saying this for a long time - tons of great metal shows to choose from in your area of the country.

BTW, Chris Broderick, formerly of Megadeth, has a new band called Act of Defiance. I picked it up several months ago. I never posted it because I was never crazy about the vocals - but since we're talking about Megadeth ...

??? It is on BlyRay. The picture quality is incredible! The sound....not that thrilled with. For starters, they cleaned it up too much. But it was also the last show where they played 30 straight days. His voice was toast. But like I said, the video quality is stunning.

Oh, ok cool! Would you say it's only the vocals that are touched up or is it everything?

Bottom line, you need it for the video quality over your dvd. It's the best looking live concert Blu Ray I have and have maybe ever seen. Maybe because I was there against the rail dead center for all 3 bands. I'm 6'4" so it made for a great view. Lol
But seeing the video that clear and vivid, really takes me back. Love it.
