'Killing' was always a back burner Megadeth title for me as I would rather play almost anything by the boys except this album. Also compared to the other 3 of the big 4, I must admit preferring show no mercy and kill em' all. Therefore, it must be said 'Killing' lay dormant for many years, gathering dust and totally forgotten.
Forward to Xmas 2007. I was fortunate to receive Warchest as a gift and the very first two tracks were remastered versions of the title track 'Killing' and 'skull beneath the skin'. Now, at this point it really is difficult to put into words what I was hearing. Was this really the same piece of music I'd virtually buried almost 20 years ago in the darkest reaches of my cd collection?
The sound quality of these 2 tracks sounded absolutely stunning. I've got SACD and dvd-a., and I'm not lying by saying this 'ordinary cd' was competing very strongly along side either of those formats without even being in 5.1. These two tasters had me rushing to the computer to purchase the remastered version of 'Killing' several years after its release.
On receiving and playing the whole remastered 'Killing' it is quite clear which of the so-called big four really was top dog. Whilst not being the biggest, Mustaine and Megadeth were the baddest and the best, laying down tracks that really do stand up today even better than at the original time. The sound quality of what is on offer here is better than most new recordings by metal bands. New life breathes thru every instrument.Read more ›
The Production on this CD isn't just a marked improvement on the original either. The production goes above and beyond the call of duty, making the CD sound fresh and utterly thrilling. I'd say this is possibly the best production I've ever heard on a CD. EVER.
In a perfect world ALL Heavy Metal CDs would sound this good!
I've gotta say, this is a fine job of remastering a really bad original production, especially when you compare them to the original tracks as bonuses on this version, just to prove how remarkably different in depth the sound has come. It's a major improvement and I think all can agree needed to be done. I think this album was even left behind by me mainly for the production and not the songwriting, and I jumped straight to Peace Sells. It's a shame because musically, it was harder, faster and more technical than Metallicas Kill em All, just didnt have the production to balance the weight.
Well done Dave for turning this one around and making it sound as relevant today as it was in the era of the finest Speed Metal band on the planet!
For years, my concession to thrash has been more or less limited to the early pioneers including 'Grimacing' Dave.
To the uninitiated, the tag 'thrash' conjures images of little more than a barely discernible cacophony of Animal-from-the-Muppet-Show grade, crazed anarchy.
However, if you struggle to go for several hours without an infusion of the fully formed, heavy stuff, denial of this spectacular work should see you in the confessional and seriously questioning your musical leanings.
I simply cannot stop playing this re-invigorated version of what exploded about 28 years ago.
There is rawness aplenty but this remastered milestone is a work of production genius sufficient to enable it to stand it toe-to-toe with almost any studio recording by any artist from any genre, ever.
Maybe it is the infusion of former jazz experimentalists but the main man gnashes out a twisted cornucopia of inverted melodies that are defined by swarms of sublime guitar breaks, vocal snarls and rhythmic swirls that hold you fast in the mosh zone and compel you to headbang and explete with the enthusiasm of an unreformed, conscientious poll tax objector.
If you're the kind of purist who found early Motörhead a fairly unique tonic in the late 70s, you really should have this musical bone permanently close to hand, perpetually ready to offer up its class A, metallic marrow.
It's a pity you can't award 6, or even 10 stars out of 5 because Megadeth's first album exists alongside things like 'Melissa' by Mercyful fate in the pantheons of formative wonder.
Get it bought.

Great music, but this version (from all your music) has censoring beeps over "Boots were made for walking". This ruins the song and my enjoyment of the whole album. Read morePublished 16 months ago by JonBoy

This remaster gives the tracks the sound that was sadly missing from the original. My only criticism is the inclusion of the demos? (bad move)Published 17 months ago by The D-MAN
