Story by Early Coffee
Things got much clearer later on with "She-Wolf" and "Trust" that their derailed train was firmly laid back on track. Dave Mustaine and Chris Broderick traded guitar riffs back and forth like two bullies on a seasaw as thunderous basslines smoked from the return of Dave Ellefson.
Megadeth's lyrics are ripe with intense themes that include politics, war, addiction, personal relationships and religion. Good honest American heavy metal with internal rage rooted in the loins of thrash that they helped create. Shawn Drover was a madman on drums. His explosive open handed drumming style was hard at the helm all night long. Mustaine's voice boomed like an ominous thunder on "Symphony of Destruction." He percieves how the masses are being led to their own destruction by our political leaders. The heavy melodic beats of "Peace Sells" followed suit. Dirge-like melodic riffs, which play continously throughout the duration of every song.
Peace might sell, but who's buying? A message for the masses perhaps.
