Megadeth

Megadeth is an American metal band founded in 1983 by Dave Mustaine – former guitarist of the Metallica group and bassist Dave Ellefson.

Megadeth’s debut album was released in 1985. It contained the song “The Mechanix”, which under the name “The Four Horsemen” Metallica published on her debut album “Kill’em All”. Mustaine was its co-author with Hetfield and Ulrich. Although the styles of the two bands differed significantly, they were often compared to each other, and the competition between the two giants of the genre is somewhat noticeable to this day.

First major success of Megadeth

The album “Peace Sells … But Who’s Buying?” was the first major success of Megadeth and today is described as one of those that significantly influenced the history and development of heavy metal. Already then the group began to be included among the leading performers of the genre known as thrash metal. The 90s brought further triumphs – the albums “Rust in Peace” and “Countdown to Extinction” are an absolute classic today. The next albums brought a softening of the sound known from previous achievements, which can be heard perfectly on the 1994 album “Youthanasia”, as well as on “Cryptic Writings” (1997) or “Risk” (1999).

Megadeth has sold over 20 million records worldwide; 6 consecutive albums obtained the status of platinum discs. Seven times in a row, the group was nominated for a Grammy Award in the “Best Metal Performance” category. During the 25-year career, 19 musicians have played in Megadeth so far. The only member from the beginning of the group’s existence is Dave Mustaine – the founder, main composer and driving force of the band.

Lyrics

Rise so high, yet so far to fall
A plan of dignity and balance for all
Political breakthrough, euphoria’s high
More borrowed money, more borrowed time
Backed in a corner, caught up in the race
Means to an end ended in disgrace
Perspective is lost in the spirit of the chase
Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream
Barren land that once filled a need
Are worthless now, dead without a deed
Slipping away from an iron grip
Nature’s scales are forced to tip
The heartland cries, loss of all pride
To leave ain’t believing, so try and be tried
Insufficient funds, insanity, and suicide
Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream
“The Congress will push me to raise taxes, and I’ll say ‘No, read my lips
Read my lips!”
Now with new hope, some will be proud
This is no hoax, no one pushed out
Receive a reprieve and be a pioneer
Break new ground of a new frontier
New ideas will surely get by
No deed, no dividend; some may ask “Why?”
You’ll find the solution, the answer’s in the sky
Rise so high, yet so far to fall
A plan of dignity and balance for all
Political breakthrough, euphoria’s high
More borrowed money, more borrowed time
Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream
Foreclosure of a dream
Those visions never seen
Until all is lost, personal holocaust
Foreclosure of a dream
Holocaust…
