MEGADETH V’S METALLICA? METAL HAMMER’S DOM LAWSON HAS THE ANSWER…

Posted on July 21, 2009

It’s all been kicking off on the ole interweb when it comes to the age old debate of who’s better- Metallica or MEGADETH. Metal Hammer journalist Dom Lawson blogged recently about why he feels Megadeth own Metallica. It’s a brilliant read from start to finish and his humorous playing of the devils advocate really has woken up some nutters, making the comments at the bottom equally entertaining. Some people really need to invest in a sense of humour!

Our fave part of the entry however has to be his summing up of the new Megadeth album ENDGAME. We will leave you with that and the news that it’s out on the 14th September. I think he may like it and we think you may too…

Endgame fucking rips, from start to finish. It is remorselessly metal from start to finish, and not in an old-guys-giving-it-a-jolly-good-go kind of way, but in a state-of-the-art, teach-those-youngsters-a-thing-or-two, come-and-have-a-go-if-you-think-you’re-metal-enough-even-though-you-don’t-stand-a-chance kind of way. The band are on blazing form, whether its Mustaine and Broderick’s magnificent six-string mastery or the pinpoint grind ‘n’ thud of James Lomenzo and Shawn Drover, and every single song crackles with pure energy and real, chest-out-and-fuck-right-off attitude. Cosy obsolescence? No, sir! Metal up your ass? Yes please, and one for the horse! Endgame is a fucking fantastic heavy metal record…a thrash metal record, goddamnit…and it wipes the floor with just about everything else I’ve heard this year. It’s almost certainly the best thing Megadeth have done since Rust In Peace, and by my reckoning that makes it the second best Megadeth album ever. I’m getting slightly aroused just thinking about it…
