August Music: A sweet ‘deth’ in the company of metal legends

Also playing in the capital this coming month are Interpol, Mac Demarco and Daniel Lanois

For those of you who missed out on Metallica at the Royal Arena, heavy thrash-metal band Megadeth might be a viable alternative to getting your fix of energetic head-banging.

Fronted by former Metallica original lead-guitarist Dave Mustaine, the prominent band began their career as far back as 1983, stunning crowds three years later with their first major label album, Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?

Megadeth have an impressive collection of songs in their arsenal, place a strong focus on controversial complex political themes.

With over 50 million records sold, the thrash-metal group helped write the book on this genre alongside prominent metal legends Slayer and Anthrax.

The controversy surrounding the band’s lyrics and music videos has done little to suppress the rise of this major player.
