The Bloody-Disgusting reader’s choice for Best Megadeth Album has been chosen! After 12 days and thousands of votes cast, a winner has emerged. We whittled down an album each day until we came to the ultimate face-off: 1990′s Rust In Peace and 1992′s Countdown To Extinction. Both albums have been lauded by fans and critics alike as classics, not only of the band but also of the metal genre as a whole. But which album emerged as the winner for all of you? Head on below to find out!
Megadeth will release their new album Super Collider on June 4th.
1990’s Rust In Peace has emerged the triumphant winner and is hailed as the Bloody-Disgusting reader’s choice Best Megadeth Album! The album stands as the ultimate testament to the band’s legacy. With scorching tracks such as “Hangar 18” and “Take No Prisoners” (my personal favorite), Rust In Peace will forever withstand the test of time and reign as one of the greatest metal albums ever released.
