Megadeth: Rust In Peace Live-Shout Factory 2010 16:9 DTS- Audio DVD 2010



It's been twenty years since one of Metal's top bands, Megadeth, recorded its classic album Rust in Peace, and fans wouldn't know it by watching Rust in Peace Live, a 2010 concert marking the 20th anniversary of the release. Aside from the high definition Blu-ray presentation and a few more miles on the bands' odometer, there's no sign that Megadeth is slowing down with the turning of two decades since Rust in Peace began its march towards platinum status.

 It's clear from the opening minutes of Rust in Peace Live that Megadeth is as strong as ever; the band plays the same memorable anthems that sound as good and as fresh today as they did 20 years ago. With the same big hair, the same slicing guitar riffs that still deliver ear-splitting notes, the same timely and still-relevant lyrics, the same passion, the same energy, and the same intensely rabid fan base, Megadeth proves with Rust in Peace Live that they still have it, that they can still put on a great show, and that they remain one of Metal's top acts. There's no denying the band's place in Metal music history, and there's nothing quite like a dosage of Rust in Peace to remember why Dave Mustaine's band is tough to beat. 

The playlist for Megadeth: Rust in Peace follows the original 1990 album, and appears on this Blu-ray release thusly: 

1. Holy Wars...The Punishment is Due 

2. Hangar 18 

3. Take No Prisoners 

4. Five Magics 

5. Poison was the Cure 

6. Lucretia 

7. Tornado of Souls 

8. Dawn Patrol 

9. Rust in Peace...Polaris 

10. Holy Wars -- Reprise 

Recorded on March 31, 2010 at the famed Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles where the Rust in Peace 20th anniversary tour came to a close, Megadeth: Rust in Peace Live was the culmination of a whirlwind 22-show North American tour that saw the band reunited with longtime bassits David Ellefson, who had left the group in 2002. The tour proved to be a massive success, but that should come as no surprise to longtime Megadeth fans. A top metal band reunited, touring the country, and promoting arguably its best album? For fans, the Rust in Peace tour was an easy sell. The original 1990 album would eventually gain platinum status and, with the songs Rust in Peace and Hangar 18, earn the band a pair of Grammy nominations in 1991 and 1992 for Best Metal Performance. Twenty years after the fact, and Rust in Peace still gets the blood pumping and heads banging like few others. Rust in Peace Live proves both the band's and the album's staying power with a show that's all about the music, emphasizing everything that's good about Megadeth and downplaying everything else in favor of the album's staying power and energy while foregoing the urge to dress it up with the usual concert antics.
