More than any other metal band in history, being a hardcore Megadeth fan is truly a rollercoaster ride. This is a band with multiple duds in their catalog, and yet they always seem to rebound. Think about it, they’ve truly had some bad releases in their catalog. RISK was terrible. THE WORLD NEEDS A HERO wasn’t a lot better. And yet, just when many were about to write them off, the bounced back with three straight great releases in THE SYSTEM HAS FAILED, UNITED ABOMINATIONS and ENDGAME. Even THIRTEEN wasn’t terrible, although it did have people wondering if they were falling again. ...and they did. SUPERCOLLIDER was pretty lousy, causing fans to once again wonder if this band had finally jumped the proverbial shark.
