Air Guitar Classics - PtI (Megadeth: So Far, So Good . . . So What)


In keeping with me nostalgic mood of late, me dragged up this gem from the golden age of thrash/speed metal. Fer me, this third outing from Megadeth captured all that was essentially good about the booming 80s metal scene - fast, aggressive & full of fooking snarling attitude.

Anyone who has heard this record will recall the nihilistic flavour of tracks such as In My Darkest Hour (vid below), Mary Jane &, best of all, the lightning fretwork on 502.

Good old Dave Mustaine may have sobered up these days & found religion, but this was when he was a nasty alcoholic-junkie full of venom & bile. And boy, did that sheer nastiness shine thru on this album. Great title, great music & great memories. Fook yeah!

Anba : the thing with rapidshare's free download links are that they limit you based on the file size. You can't download 2 files at the same time or immediately after finishing one but normally you should be able to download again about an hour or so after your previous download.

premo said...

Hey dudes

Do check out this short docu on Gorogoraoth's Gaal. Quite an interesting insight on black metal.

premo said...

Oops I meant Gorgoroth

anfield devotee said...

premo: Yes, me has seen that docu. What a shit place the fooker is staying in!!! Shit weather (rain fer months without end), blzzards & no modern plumbing! No wonder Gorgoroth thinks its hell on earth!!!

ps: Try new links, it works fer sure. Enjoy!

Anba: Yeah, me use to encounter that every so ofetn as well. They will make life difficult fer free users la, in an attempt to make you sign up as a premuim user. Sabar bro.

Anba said...

Bernard:- the funny thing is the last file i downloaded was like a week ago...
thats y sometimes i think the pc gone kukuu

Balaji:- Kesabaran separuh dari iman...hehhee

anfield devotee said...

Anba: Same here. Happens sometimes to me as well, even though me hasn't downloaded shit from rapidshare fer weeks, it still flashes that message.

Hope you managed to download this LP as it quite possibly Dave Mustaine's finest hour. Me was blasting it on the drive to work this am & boy, did it inspire some pedal to the metal momets.

Fave tracks are Liar & 502. Fooking shred attack!

I liked Euthanasia.

Ridzzy said...

woot! I like! thanks for this

anfield devotee said...

segar: Hmmmm . . . fer me Megadeth were at their peak during the first four LPs. Youthnasia, Cryptic Writings e al dah commercial sangat la. Having said that, me just downloaded their last one United Abominations & thought it quite good. Will try to post download here soon.

Ridzzy: Classic speed metal la this. Mustaine at his drug-fueled best.
