Megadeth is an American heavy metal group from Los Angeles, California, formed in 1983. conspired by guitarist/vocalist Dave Mustaine and bassist Dave Ellefson following Mustaine’s departure from Metallica, the ensemble has since issued twelve studio albums, three live albums, two EPs, twenty six singles, thirty-two songs videos, four compilations and one box set.
As a pioneer of the American thrash metal movement, Megadeth rose to international fame in the 1980′s and was ranked as one of the “Big Four of Thrash”, along with Metallica, Slayer, and Anthrax, who were responsible for creating, developing and popularizing the thrash metal sub-genre. Megadeth has experienced numerous line-up changes, due partly to the band’s notorious substance addiction dilemmas. From 1983 to 2002 — and as of February 8, 2010 — Mustaine and Ellefson are the only continuous members of the ensemble. After finding sobriety and securing a stable line-up, Megadeth went on to release a string of platinum and gold albums, which included the platinum-selling landmark Rust in Peace in 1990 and the Grammy nominated, multi-platinum Countdown to Extinction in 1992. Megadeth disbanded in 2002 after Mustaine suffered a severe nerve injury to his left arm. However, following extensive physical therapy, Mustaine reformed the group in 2004 and issued The System Has Failed, followed by United Abominations in 2007; the albums debuted on the Billboard Top 200 chart at #18 and #8, respectively. Megadeth, along with their new lead guitarist Chris Broderick, released their twelfth studio album, titled Endgame, on September 15, 2009, which debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200.
In the band’s 25 active years, Megadeth has had 20 official members, with Dave Mustaine remaining as the driving force and main songwriter.
Megadeth is known for its distinctive instrumental style, often featuring dense, intricate passages and trade off guitar solos. Mustaine is also known for his “snarling” vocal style, as well as his recurring lyrical themes including politics, war, addiction, personal relationships and religious themes.
Megadeth has sold close to 25 million copies worldwide,with five consecutive albums being certified platinum in the USA. The group has also been nominated seven consecutive times for Best Metal Performance.
