4.0 out of 5 stars MEGADETH AT THEIR BEST!!, 6 Mar. 2011
This review is from: Rust in Peace Live [DVD] [2010] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
There is no shortage Of Megadeth live dvd's and here's another one for the market, released one month before The Big Four Release that includes them, Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, so there is a chance you are waiting for that, well don't wait get this great performance now, it's Megadeth at their best, filmed on the last American date of their Rust In Peace Tour at the famous Hollywood Palladium this dvd/cd release has the whole gig and the classic album Rust In Peace played from start to finish to mark it's 20 year anniversary.

Whats more original bassist David Ellefson is back and it's been a while since Megadeth sounded so tight! Yes it's a pity Rust In Peace Guitarist Marty Friedman and Drummer Nick Menza didn't return but it doesn't take away from the performance, as soon as the opening riff of Holy Wars.. belts out the crowd go mental, Chris Broderick is a fine guitarist who compliments Mustaine,Shawn Drover has long since proved he's been the best drummer in Megadeth since Menza.

The stand out performances are Holy Wars, Hangar 18 and Rust in Peace... Polaris, theses really remind you why Rust In Peace is one of the best metal albums of all time, the sound on the dvd is perfectly mixed in 5.1 and captures each instrument brilliantly, it's also great that you get the cd of the show as well. On the dvd you get a few extra's including some rehearsal footage, you also get the six extra tracks that were played that night, it's a pity that they weren't just included to run along the main feature, these six tracks are also include on the cd and include a brilliant version of Symphony Of Destruction which still sounds as fresh now as it did in 1992 and of course they close with that famous opening bass line that is Peace Sells.

This is probably the best live Megadeth dvd have released so it's a must have for all fan's of the band!!
