Megadeth & Metallica

Recommended Posts

Is this argument still going on with Megadeth and Metallica I both honestly think they are both utterly amazing bands. I have seen both live and they are both godly. Not to imagine Dave Mustaine is a god so the performances should be godly ;) I am glad that metallica kicked mustaine from the band because Megadeth would not have been created and Metallica would not have existed due to three members both trying to seize control of the band. This was bad with "some kind of monster" imagine how bad it would have been with Dave involved. Anyways both awesome. Super epic!

Re: Megadeth & Metallica the argument i have seen most is "who's better Dave or Kirk" by my opinion Dave is by far a better guitarist, not to say kirk isn't good, hes great both metallica and megadeth are amazing bands ether way

Re: Megadeth & Metallica Listen to the Dream Theater cover of Pantera's "Gemetery Gates" for some reason Dave Mustaines solo sounds really really bad, I know dave's a good guitarist but he doesn't seem as professional as john petrucci or Steve Vai, neither does Kirk Hammet

Re: Megadeth & Metallica Both bands are great however I would argue that Dave Mustaine is a far better guitarist than Kirk (at least when it comes to rhythm & riffs) Vocal wise I prefer Hetfield from the first four albums as he is less whiny... but hey Mustaine is really unique! Overall there shouldn't be an uproar between fans, just appreciate the thrash :) anything metal is better than Bieber.

Re: Megadeth & Metallica For a while now, Mustaines voice has sounded like shit. . He's exhausted, And it sounds whiny.. Hetfield has lost some of his punch, But it sounds better than mustaine.. As a Metallica fan, i have to say Metallica, But Megadeth is a good band too.

Re: Megadeth & Metallica i think both of the band's careers are on a downfall but i would have to say megadeth are the better band overall now. maybe back in the 80's metallica would have struck it for me but if we're basing this off overall career then megadeth gets it

Re: Megadeth & Metallica Megadeth has never caught my attention but I'm a die hard Metallica fan. I don't really know why I don't like Megadeth but I find them somewhat boring and I can't really get a grip around their texts as whole.

Re: Megadeth & Metallica I like both Metallica and Megadeth, but I certainly like Metallica way more than Megadeth. I can't really explain why. It may just be because I've been listening to Metallica my entire life, so I'm more used to their sound. But... meh, there's just something about Megadeth that I can't get into.

I agree that both bands are fucking EPIC!!!!! But in my opinion Metallica is a lot better even through the nineties I enjoy all of their stuff. I'm not saying that I like St. Anger but if it was made by a band that wasn't as great as Metallica,it probably wouldn't be too bad of an album. I won't ever say that Megadeth shouldn't ever be considered better than Metallica because opinions differ, but IMO Metallica is better.

Both are over-rated in the extreme. Neither has done much, if anything, of merit for over twenty years. Comparing the first four albums of each band I'd take KIMBABIG over Kill 'Em All, PSBWB over Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets over SFSGSW and Rust In Peace over Justice.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!
