5.0 out of 5 stars SOMETHING FOR EVERYONE, 14 April 2011
This review is from: Warchest Box (Audio CD)
The best thing Metallica ever did was to fire Dave Mustaine as the world was given the band Megadeth and so for the next 25 years Dave Mustaine went on a personal crusade to be better than Metallica. While he was never going to compete sales wise (not many do) he ceartinly competes music wise. And thats what this 5 disc (4cd & 1 dvd) boxset proves.

Covering Megadeth from the beginning right up to 2004 album The System Has Failed, its all here singles, b sides, live tracks, demos and line up changes.

The first three discs cover all the albums with a selection of songs taken from each. But its not just the tracks lifted straight from the original albums, what you get is live versions, demos and songs that didnt make those original albums. You also get the songs that were only ever released on soundtracks such as No More Mr Nice Guy, Angry again, Go to hell (these are also available on the album Hidden Treasures. Some of the stand out tracks are Wake up dead, Five magics (demo version) and the live version of Skin o' my teeth.

Disc 4 is a live concert recorded at wembley in 1990 and is flawless Megadeth, much better than any of their recent live releases and shows why Mustaine is one of the best technical guitarists out there. Disc 5 is a live dvd and captures the band with their classic line up of Mustaine, Dave Ellefson (bass), Marty Friedman (lead Guitar) and Nick Menza (drums). This is probaly when Megadeth were at their peak and it shows in this live performance of ten songs. The standout been Holy wars.

Warchest comes in a lovely package and features a superb booklet that contains a brief history and discography and a full list of every member that has played with the band.

So even if you have all the albums and greatest hits you MUST add Warchest to your collection as a lot of thought has gone into this release.
