Product Description

CD Description

Megadeth announce the release of their thirteenth album, titled Th1rt3en, the follow-up to 2009's End Game. The album includes the track "Sudden Death" - the first new recording featuring the re-united “Daves” (bassist Dave Ellefson and frontman Dave Mustaine) that was included on 2010’s Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock video game – a Grammy nominated single that proved Megadeth were back to their best.

BBC Review

Last year Megadeth bandleader Dave Mustaine published a ghost-written autobiography that was so "unputdownable" that were it available in a laminated edition readers would have taken it into the shower. For a man whose defiant sneer is known to metal fans the world over – despite a particularly chequered recording history, the group’s previous album, 2009’s Endgame, entered the US Billboard charts in the top 10 – the songwriter came across as being a sensitive and at times even vulnerable character. Amid tales of heroin addiction, of being fired from his job as lead guitarist with Metallica – a wound which although calmed still refuses to heal – of taking so many drugs that he fell asleep on his arm and almost called time on his career as a guitarist, as well as getting through more band members than The Blue Man Group, the book chronicles a life populated by enough inner demons to launch a horror movie franchise.

It’s a shame, then, that Th1rt3en is not quite as compelling as the man who created it. Even so, at their most unremarkable Megadeth remain group entirely incapable of recording a boring album. This is due to the fact that Mustaine – a man who Slash described in his book as being "a riff machine" – usually packs each song with at least twice as many ideas as are strictly necessary. Over the years this instinct (it is much more than a mere tactic) has produced tracks of the quality of 1990’s pretty much untouchable Holy Wars… The Punishment Due. It has, though, also produced more than its share of stinkers, a fact which affords the release of any Megadeth album an air of unpredictability.

Unusually, then, Th1rt3en – fittingly, the quartet’s 13th CD – is something of an unremarkable affair. Not a bad album, but not one for the ages. Songs such as the title-track and the quite brilliant Sudden Death do stir the senses, but elsewhere much of this work is a quiet burn rather than a sudden rush. On the one hand it’s at least something that Megadeth aren’t attempting to squeeze themselves into younger men’s clothes. But on the other, longtime fans of the group may miss the twists, not to mention the bite and snarl, of previous albums. --Ian Winwood

I've been a lifelong fan of the 'Deth, well until Mustaine started swapping members left right and centre which removed a lot of the magic. Thirt3en has restored my faith however! The band are showing that they still have something to prove, unlike Metallica who have nothing to show, apart from the fact that they are smug millionaires who can do as they please. Megadeth have done the opposite and got hungry again. Previous album 'Endgame' and Dave Mustaine's recent biography show that the band are trying to claim their place in metal history by force rather than sitting around waiting for the Rock n Roll hall of Fame to come knocking. This record pummels you in the face from the word Go!
Opener 'Sudden Death' is riff-tastic in it's tight deadliness and also shows that Shawn Drover must be one of the best drummers on Earth! Seriously, he is up there with the guy out of Mastodon or Joey from the 'Knot and has rejuvenated the band to their most fullest of potentialisms. From here on in its obvious the band are going for the jugular, each song is tight, well written and executed with a great sing/shout-along metal chorus. The addition of Producer Johnny K who does some writing also on the album really has helped them pull their best tricks and licks out and being a muso myself I sat there in awe at the greatness of some of the riffs, just like I did in 1990 woth 'Holy Wars'. The return of David Ellefson and the resurrection of older songs written by the 'definitive' line-up (when Marty and Nick were in the band) should have fans salivating, and they didn't disappoint either.
'Public Enemy No 1' was a bit of a weird choice for the big comeback single, kicking off with a verse riff that sounds like something Iron Maiden would do but 'Whose Life (Is it anyway?

In 2010 when Megadeth were in the middle of 20th anniversary tour for metal masterpiece "Rust In Peace" as well as playing the album from start to finish most of the other material played was also older tracks from the likes of "Peace Sells", "So Far, So Good..So What? and "countdown To Extinction" only a couple of tracks from current album "Endgame" made the cut, this trend would continue during the Big Four Tour. Also original bassist Dave Ellefson was back in the band for the first time since 2001 and now we have album number 13 from Megadeth called "TH1RT3EN". To keep with the going back in time theme there's even new versions of old songs included.

Ellefson's returning influence can be heard on album opener "Sudden Death" as his bass opens the track alongside some tribal drumming a classic Megadeth guitar riff, the song is a great way to open the album and the playing is really tight throughout. The first single chosen was "Public Enemy No.1" which has a galloping riff and a snarling Mustaine, what more could you ask for? Interestingly "New World Order" is an old song, a demo version was originally included on the 2004 remaster of "Youthanasia"(so the classic megadeth line up of Mustaine, Friedman, Ellefson and Menza get a writing credit), the new version is newly recorded and of course newly produced giving it a new sheen. "Black Swan" came from the "United Abominations" sessions and has nothing to do with the film of the same name.

Th1rt3en is a nice, well-produced album. Is that what you want to hear from Megadeth? Nice?
Well, I don't anyway...This album is more in the vain of Cryptic or Youthanasia rather than the great Peace sells or Rust in Peace or Endgame but without the novelty those had at the time of their release.
Rather short tracks, predictable structures, silly lyrics (Black swan).
A bit of a let down, even if as a whole the album remains pleasant and somehow a good piece of heavy metal due to the abilities of the band members, it is also very patchy.
I'd rather they came out with something a bit more complex and more up-tempo. Some seem to say that this is a more mature album, and if it the case for some tracks such as the title track, most of the songs are a bit too "friendly" for me.
It might be more suitable for iTunes format, but as an album it fails, and since I don't care for downloads, and still consider an album as an entity, I can't help but being disappointed by 13.

Medageth are recognised as one of the `Big Four' thrash metal bands, which includes Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. Whilst in rehab in January 2002, Dave Mustaine fell asleep with his left arm over the back of a chair, caused compression of the radial ulnar nerve. This resulted in him being unable to grasp anything with his left hand and he disbanded Megadeth. The band reformed in 2004, but there had been an acrimonious split with long-time bassist, Dave Ellefson, and he did not play on `The System Has Failed' (2004), `United Abominations' (2007) and `Endgame' (2009).

Mustaine and Ellefson both became committed Christians and finally managed to leave their issues in the past and resume their friendship. The line-up became Dave Mustaine (lead vocals & guitar), Dave Ellefson (bass & backing vocals), Chris Broderick (guitar & backing vocals) and Shawn Drover (drums) for the release of `Th1rt3en' (2011). Mustaine stated "I started playing guitar at 13 and this is our 13th record and I was born on the 13th. As soon as I said I was going to call it 'Thirteen', I started noticing 13 everywhere. They never used to have 13th floors in hotels but now they have them again." The album was produced by "Johnny K" Karkazis (Disturbed, Sevendust, Soil).

Whilst some critics would like to reflect on past glories, it is time to move on. Let's face it, if any band keeps churning out the same stuff it just becomes monotonous. The album could be seen as a return to form and includes new tracks and updated versions of old demos. `Sudden Death' harks back to technical trash riffage and can also be found on the 2010 Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock game. My personal favourite is `Public Enemy No.
