MEGADETH HERO STICKER
HERO - STICKER
For Dave Mustaine revenge is a dish best served piping hot, as the ousted Metallica guitarist set his sights on his former band, and vowed to be, “…faster and heavier than them.”
Settling the score would have to wait until Megadeth’s second album Peace Sells…but Who’s Buying, which caught the attention of Capitol Records.
With the backing of a major label, Mustaine’s audience and influence on the world of Thrash Metal grew, giving him a larger platform for his boisterous political opposition towards the U.S. Government and the Military Industrial Complex, found in hit singles “Peace Sells”, “Hangar 18”, and the prophetic, “Symphony of Destruction”.
Ravaged by drug and alcohol abuse, Megadeth took on many different incarnations over the years and even led to a brief breakup in 2002.
Influenced: Pantera, Arch Enemy, Lamb of God, In Flames
