Megadeth Rust In Peace Live

Megadeth Rust In Peace Live
When thrash forefathers Megadeth announced plans to tour in support of the 20th anniversary of 1990's Rust In Peace, excitement quickly turned to fear. Could they recreate the majestic dexterity of their finest moment? Laying such hesitation to waste within seconds of opener "Holy Wars... The Punishment Due," Rust In Peace Live proves they're no band on the wane. Nailing a spirited, yet spotless, rendition of the release, this Megadeth are clearly just as capable ― probably more so ― than the line-up that originally recorded the masterpiece. Sure, bonus material is slim, with a few career-spanning favourites ("In My Darkest Hour," "Peace Sells" and more) for an encore and a forgettable, brief behind-the-scenes rehearsal interspersed with fan ravings. The important thing is that there's rawness mixed with accomplished ability that propels this concert DVD, ensuring that Rust In Peace Live feels almost as vital and necessary as the studio album it celebrates.
