Man, there's nothing quite like old-school speed metal. Is it a bit dated? Sure. But it still shreds so damn hard. The sheer, raw musicianship on display is out of this world. Really fun record.

This album was really good. The speed or the drums the wails of the guitar and even though I'm not the biggest fan of the singers voice, it mixed so well with the instrumentals. I cannot say enough good things about the guitar work. The album starts strong with "holy wars..." but ramps it up with the next rrack("hanger 18") and even these 2 songs are a great showcase of the masterful guitar work. Also to note the drums fit so perfectly and just punch up the entire album. This is one of the greatest metal albums I've ever listened to, it's so relentless with its speed and precision. Even when it lets you take a break from head banging it(" five magics" 4 songs in) still delivers a true metal experience.

OK, this one really surprised me. All those years ago as a teenage metalhead I quickly discovered that thrash metal just isn't the right subgenre for me. It simply didn't appeal to me and that included all the old legends such as Slayer and Sepultura (which I rated 1 and 2 stars respectively, when it was their turn in this album generator) and also Megadeth. For some reason Rust In Peace hit me in a completely different way this time though. It just sounds really good, the riffs are great, the groove is exactly right, the voice fits perfectly, the songs are well-structured; just a great album - regardless of if my teenager-self would have agreed or not. We learn and grow, I guess.

Not an ounce of flab on this album. Crisp, lean, melodic, rhythmic, and incredible management of audio dynamics. One of the best in this genre. Standout tracks: Holy Wars, Take No Prisoners

Not quite a five for me, but where do I begin ..... Holy Wars, Hangar 18, Tornado of Souls and Polaris to start... impeccable muscianship, Mustaines lyrics , their high point for sure - they don’t make it like this anymore kids 😕

Whoa, what a lead in on Holy Wars. If you don't like guitars, you do now. Incredible work and at such a pace! Sorry, hard to type with a melted face. The album doesn't always keep up with the opener but it's still pretty impressive. The first 4 tracks are awesome from a music standpoint (Mustaine's voice is annoying). The next 3 are still good but each is up and down (awesome sequences surrounded by so-so ones). Tornado of Souls is a good example; it really cranks up around the 3min mark then settles back down to decent around the 4min mark. Of the final 3, I didn't care much for Dawn Patrol (My Creation was ok but brief) but the title track is almost as good as the first half of the album.

In general I enjoyed this album. I'm not a huge fan of thrash, but I can appreciate it, particularly the great tone and precision. I have to ding this album for two reasons. The first is probably not fair, but there were times I felt like I was listening to Tenacious D, particularly songs like Holy Wars...the Punishment Due, Take No Prisoners, and Lucretia. These songs made me think of songs like Car Chase City and the Metal. It's not fair to ding an album because of songs that parody the style, but I had a hard time taking it seriously as a result. The other ding is deserved: there's a lot of lyrical cheesiness: "Welcome to our fortress tall" in Hangar 18 (but, to be fair, the song rocks). "A snake you were when we met" in Poison was the Cure. "Thermal count is rising/in perpetual writhing/the primordial ooze/and the sanity they lose" in Dawn Patrol (but I like the bass line in the song). "Immense in my girth, erect I stand tall" (Rust in Peace...Polaris). Ugh.

The fourth album from Megadeth is just as "thrashy" as one would expect. The thrash metal songs whips you around from one to the next, but never getting boring. If you like fast, nasty jams on guitars and drums - including many guitar solos - than this is the album for you. The album was popular at release due to Megadeth's many tours with other prominent rock and metal bands, so it was no wonder that only 4 years later the album was certified platinum. This album defined a genre of metal music at the beginning of the 90's, and is still widely regarded as one of the best albums out there for thrash metal. Helluva-rocking good time!

A fantastic record that really has it all. Hot guitar solos, riffs, a huge vocal range, and smart if somewhat edgy lyrics. Way ahead of their time. Somehow all their songs sound unique here. Hanger 18 is my favorite song off the album. I don't see any weak points here, so I'd have to rate it 9/10.

When this came up I was not thrilled about more metal. Oh well, here goes... "Holy Wars... The Punishment Due" started and I was liking what I was hearing in the opening guitar. The lyrics were melodious expressing sentiments I could agree with. Is this me liking a Megadeth song? On to "Hangar 18" and I'm really digging it. Somehow I've plugged into this and... can repeated exposure to metal bands in this project turn me into a metal-head? "Take No Prisoners" takes off like a rocket. The guitar streaks through the opening and locks in on the melody as the drum starts kicking its ass. Fantastic stuff! The lyrics come in and… wow! If thrash metal has hooks Megadeth knows how to write them. Blown away by this song. "Five Magics" takes things down a notch and makes me want to get back into Dungeons & Dragons. Typical of their songs there are several killer guitar solos, not what I typically think of as my thing but man these are good... Is it me or is this album a lot of fun? "Poison Was The Cure" opens ominously and then explodes into Megadeth's high-speed thrills. Even if you hate this stuff you're delusional if you can't recognize the talent behind it... I love the witch cackle kicking off “Lucretia” and its lyrics. Yes, this is me loving some Megadeth. “Tornado of Souls” rocks! Incredible song. The music is intricate. Incredible performance. Then the guitar solo… holy crap! Wow wow wow! “Dawn Patrol” switches to a more ominous tone and much slower pace quite suitable to the seriousness of the lyrics. It is more frighteningly applicable today than when it was created. Should have heeded this song in 1990…. Who knew to go to Megadeth for environmental action songs? “Rust in Peace… Polaris” is sung from the perspective of a nuclear missile. Cool! Takes me back to my youth until I realize there are still nuclear missiles pointed at most of us today...may they all rust in peace. Feel like I'm getting a little Halloween treat as "My Creation" treats us to some Dr. Frankenstein serenading his monster. Love the abrupt ending. I'm sitting here with my hair blown back and a huge smile on my face... I went from dreading this listen to listening to RUST IN PEACE four times through already. I did not expect a topical, comprehensible, melodic, technical, downright fun listen... a real surprise!

An absolute class in Thrash Metal. There's honestly nothing new I can add to this album's discussion, but I'll try anyways. The overall sound is great, but Dave's singing might not be for everyone, I'm honestly inbetween liking Mustaine's vocals or not, since I don't dislike them but feel like Metallica's James Hetfield can give his songs the vocals they deserve, especially in the detour from thrash they were doing around this time (Load and Reload) and definitely in the actual thrash albums like Master Of Puppets, Ride The Lightning and my favourite: 2008's Death Magnetic. I honestly haven't been able to listen to any Anthrax or Slayer yet, so I can't compare the stuff that they were releasing at the time to this, but overall even if the output from those bands just happened to be better at the time, this is still definitely worth a listen if you enjoy Thrash. Dawn Patrol sucks ass though, jeez Dave stick to high lyrics

RIP will always hold a special place in my heart, as well as metal history. The latter because IMO this was so good that this is why thrash had to fade out, there was no topping Dave’s new crew’s chemistry and his ability to balance harmony and anger. The former because this is one of the first metal CDs I got and fell in love with. And even if I ever have to sell off my collection, there is no way that I would part with my 1990 first edition- the remaster that reverbs Dave’s vocals is just not it. But this sounds as technically perfect as ever, even the (likely deliberate) imperfect moments. And I’ll always go to bat for “Dawn Patrol”, which is a neat little interlude before the deadly finish. I don’t think that I can give this a full A due to Dave’s politics and Junior’s recent problems. I’m still willing to compromise for 5 stars and accept that Dave has always had his foot in his mouth (we wouldn’t have “Holy Wars” if he didn’t say some particularly insensitive shit, for instance), and Junior’s creepy behavior is a seemingly more recent development. All I know is that I feel like putting it back on.

I thought this was going to be passable, but didn't have high hopes. I thought I knew what Megadeth sounded like and I didn't think I liked it. Turns out I was wrong and this is a great album! I listened to it all the way through like 4 times in a row. I don't really care for Mustaine's vocals, but they're easy enough to get over. The rest is excellent. 5/5

A band I somehow missed completely when they were around. Definitely heard the band's name a lot, and I knew Dave Mustaine's name as well, but had not listened to this album or any Megadeth before. I almost never listen to any thrash metal (very little metal of any kind, really -- nothing against it, just not super into it), but I am really enjoying this album. They play amazingly well, so wild and airtight at the same time. How can they stay in time so perfectly well at that speed? Wow. The guitar playing is fantastic. I'm indifferent about the vocals, although the style makes sense for what they are doing. Definitely have respect for what they created and recorded here.

I enjoyed this one. A lot. Surprise! When the first track, "Holy Wars...the Punishment Due" started, I thought, "I'm noticing the guitars and I like what they're doing. I'm noticing the drums and I like what they're doing. It's not boring and it's not noise. I'm moving with the music." Dave Mustaine, as I would notice through the whole album, did interesting, varied, and effective things with his voice. You get that change in tempo and the scary deep voice comes out, and it was so cool. "Take No Prisoners" employed a heavy metal backup call-and-response chorus, and I realized that there needs to be more of that. This one made me want to move my body. "Five Magics" went from the anti-war themes into a bit of geekery. Extra points for bringing "wyverns" into it. Extra points for the Exorcist voice effects and the demon backup singer "Possessed with hellish torment!" I love the cackle at the beginning of "Lucretia." And this song gets a little jazzy and swingy in a way I much appreciate. "Lucretia rocks away...yay!" "Dawn Patrol" is a 30-year-old warning about climate change done in a creaky, creepy voice. "We end our lives as moles." "Rust in Peace...Polaris" was inspired by an anti-nuke bumper sticker. Wow! Last comment is that while I usually have a hard time with guitar solos, I really liked these, and I couldn't tell you why, but I did.

I've actually never listened to Megadeth before this album. I wasn't that much into metal in my teens although I liked some. This album was intense.

I have heard a few Megadeth songs, but not many. Fun fact: Marty Friedman (guitarist) went to high school here in Laurel, MD. Mustaine’s vocals… take a bit to get used to. But the musicianship is clearly there. You can clearly see the line of evolution from Metallica to Megadeth.

I've listened to a lot of metal throughout the years, but to this day, 'Hanger 18' remains one of my all-time favourite metal songs, and my favourite Megadeth track. It's no secret that the shortcoming of Megadeth's music has always been Dave Mustaine's voice, but on 'Hanger', he manages to mostly avoid his signature squeaky, nasally sound and deliver a decent vocal performance that really works with the rest of the song. Then again, this being Megadeth, we're here for the guitar virtuosity of Mustaine and, on 'Rust In Peace', Marty Friedman. And holy shit, is that on full display in 'Hanger 18'. The solo trade-offs in the final portion of the song, interspersed with that fantastically heavy riff, is just genius. Putting aside my love of that particular track, there's lots to enjoy on this album. 'Holy Wars' is another Megadeth staple, and for good reason - the face-melting nature of its opening, its well-known flamenco-style interlude, the sheer head-banging goodness of the remainder - yeah, that's a hell of a track. Fortunately, while many of these other tracks are forgettable vocally and lyrically, god damn does the music really shine. 'Take No Prisoners' and 'Five Magics' are great examples, particularly the insane guitar solo work at the end of 'Magics'. And then, after what's a gradual, slow-paced beginning to 'Poison Was the Cure', it just erupts in this incredibly energetic, thrash-y riff that carries the song into its brief yet brilliant ending solo. The remaining songs on the album are all worthwhile, particularly 'Tornado of Souls'. 'Dawn Patrol' is a surprising addition, bringing a much slower-paced, brooding element to the album. All in all, a seminal album of the thrash metal era, and arguably Megadeth's best. 4.5/5.

I still prefer Metallica. Something about Mustaine's vocals just seems a bit off to me, but there is no denying that this is a fun record and that the guitar could disintegrate a young child off the mortal plane. The album art is really funny to me for some reason. Gently stroke the alien tube.

I have always tended to avoid Megadeth because I really can't be bothered with Mustaine's voice, his guitar wankery or his bleating about Metallica being mean to him. As a general rule I prefer my thrash more punk and less ginger but I surprisingly really enjoyed the shiny big hooks and proto-prog metal bits going on here.

Decent on first listen, was playing Tony Hawks 2 at the time. Title track was the main stand out and also the 2nd song on the album - Hangar 18, with an honorable mention to the instrumental type opening which was great. First listen definitely piqued interest, but have not got many natural compartors as not as punky as my usual heavy guitar stuff. Think it warrants a few relistens to properly judge.

While not my go-to genre, it is hard to argue with the musicianship and skill that are on display in this album. Megadeth has swooping melodies and solos as they play hard and fast in an album that shows why they are held in such high regard among Metalheads. The weakest part is the vocals, which lack any sort of bite - especially in comparison to Metallica, the spawning group for Megadeth.

I like this better than Metallica. It's tight as tight, but with a bit more noise to it. Funnier, in a deadpan, angst-ridden way. Lightning fast guitar shredding, but without descending into mere typing exercises. Punk attitude and not-dumb lyrics make this tolerable. just melodic enough to make re-listenable.

Un altre dels grans clàssics del thrash que per mi no passa de bon disc, amb algun tema destacat, com 'Hangar 18' o 'Tornado of Souls'. A l'igual que 'Reign in Blood', sempre m'han semblat més autènticament clàssics altres discos posteriors, com en el cas de Megadeth 'Countdown to Extinction'... però això no treu que sigui un dels grans renombrats de l'època, i molt disfrutable

Irgendwie geil. Tolles Tempo, sauberer Sound und Melodien, die ganz schön catchy, ja fast poppig wirken und dennoch roh genug vorgetragen werden. Gefällt mir weit besser, als so vieles ausm Genre. Dazu diese niemals verjährte Haltung zu Politik und Religion, die verlässlich Anlass zur Kritik geben. Kein Wunder, dass Metall sich von 68er Weltverbesserern abspaltete, als Hippies zum Mainstream mutierten. 3.4

Pure and simple: this album rocks. I had heard a couple of Megadeth songs before, but I had never gone out of way to give one of their albums a full listen. After giving this one a go, I would say it would be much harder to find a thrash metal album that is more impressive instrumentally than 'Rust in Peace'. The guitars and drums are SO powerful, and the production allows every single note and beat to stand out on its own. There are a ton of solos here, and they are all excellent/fit in perfectly within each track. The one thing I did know about Megadeth going into this record is their leader Dave Mustaine's involvement in Metallica during their early years. I tried to keep Metallica comparisons at a minimum and evaluate this on its own, but one thing that was apparent to me is that a lot of these songs were shorter and relied on defined riffs which are very characteristic of songs off of 'Kill Em All'. The one song that tried something different than this was the opener 'Holy Wars', and that is the best song on the album IMO. I'd be curious to know if Megadeth relied on shorter songs moving forward or if they expanded to longer/multi-part songs on future releases. While I was a fan of the music and short track lengths, I will say that I don't think Mustaine is a great vocalist. His voice never completely ruined any of the songs for me (I thought it was incorporated about as good as it could have been in the mix), but I do feel like I would have been able to take in the lyrics better and just feel an overall stronger presence if the vocals were a bit better. Overall, a great metal album with one setback that keeps it from being a great album in general. 3.5/5.

I've always thought of Megadeath as less than. Not sure why. I've never owned any, this will be the first I listen to all the way through. I appreciate the over the top silly cover, that bodes well. Holy Wars is a super strong start. Yeah, the whole album is strong. The riffs are there, it's fast and hard, the lyrics are silly. Gets the blood pumping. But still, put it all together and it doesn't quite hit the mark for me. I don't feel emotion, or sense of humor, or much besides adrenalin. I guess that's why there's more than one band in the world.

I'll just get this out of the way: I prefer Metallica. Is Mustaine trying to ripoff Axel Rose's vocal style, or is that just the unfortunate way he sings? If you just wanna rock and don't care how this album will do it for you. There's plenty of slamming metal guitar work to go around. But overall it gets repetitive and bland by the back half of the album. Mega-meh.

Rust in Peace by Megadeth (1990) What excels on this album are the guitar performances by Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman, both of whom display a virtuosity that is beyond classic. And the compositions go well beyond simple chord progressions and driving beats. They are intricate, with fulsome use of tempo changes, metric variety, wild percussive riffs, and vivid tonal colors. It’s interesting how much of the solo lead guitar work is performed by Friedman, but it seems that the final lead phrases on each track are pretty generally taken by Mustaine, as if to underscore who’s the boss. Lead vocals by Mustaine are, however, are less than dazzling. His effort to sound evil is undermined by a rather squeaky timbre (although the frog croak non-melody on “Dawn Patrol” is interesting). I mostly wanted to tune out the ‘singing’ just to listen to the extraordinary guitar work. Backing vocals by bassist David Ellefson and drummer Nick Menza don’t offer much assistance. And lyrics are well below par, focusing on themes of denunciation, vengeance, judgment, apocalyptic warnings, darkside cosmologies, unstable psyches, and angry antipathy toward the instrumentalities of the Cold War (which, in 1991, was about to come to a stunning end with the collapse of the Soviet Union—Megadeth weren’t the only ones blindsided by this one). There ain’t a lot of love here. And whatever love is expressed (“Poison Was the Cure”) is quickly regretted. Nice music for channeling one’s anger, but when you’re done you’ll want to sit under a tree and listen to the wind. 3/5

I used to be a bigger Megadeth fan than I am now, so this album isn't as appealing to me as it once would have been. Also, there are only a few instances where I feel Dave Mustaine's voice actually suits metal, so I did not enjoy that aspect of this album. Some of the riffs were pretty good I do have to say. Otherwise it's simply not for me.

It's possible that if this came out in 1971, when I stopped listening to Tom Jones and Sandler and Young and started listening to Black Sabbath, I would have been all over it. It’s easy to dismiss them now, since I've had no interest in the 2nd, 3rd or 4th waves of metal. But, the guitar playing is suitably over the top (and definitely catches your attention), they have good energy, nice changes of pace and the lyrics aren’t garbage. I guess every generation will spawn new metal-heads and kids born in the late 70s needed metal they could call their own.

It's energetic isn't it. So this is what my mates were listening to at school. I was happy with Faith No More. Does sound pretty much exactly like I imagined it to. Apparently massively influential, so again the curse of I've heard loads influenced by it but not the thing itself. All good metal, not massively my thing, I think I prefer my metal slightly less noodly in, always space for some of this for me but more likely in small doses. Mind you the solos and rhythm guitar for the second half of Lucretia are excellent.

I would like Megadeth at least twice as much if it weren't for Mustaine's voice which just makes me want to punch him. Musically this is great, in fact it seems a little less annoying than it was at time of release, I wonder if the remaster turned down the vocal tracks in the mix. Seriously, you know some people have a face you want to punch, he has a voice that does the same thing.

The Kansas City Royals enjoyed their first 25 years of existence as one of the model Major League Baseball franchises. They won 2 pennants and a World Series, and never finished in last place. Then around 1996, the franchise reversed course and spent a good 15 years as an embarrassment. They tried all sorts of gimmicks to still maintain fan interest they hoped would somehow remove the stench of the lackluster product on the field. The added black to their uniform color scheme for a few forgettable years. And most notably, they finally decided the team needed a mascot: A lion wearing a crown named Sluggerrr. This is really a long way to say if the team was any good, they wouldn't need to create an embarrassing mascot with unnecessary R:s in its name. The same goes for music bands. If the music is any good, it wouldn't need to create a mascot. It turns out Megadeth has a mascot, one prominently on display of this album and most of their other work. Apparently the mascot even shows up during concerts. What the mascot really tells us is that the music is not enough. It's a mask alright. But I can't completely dismiss this due to the fact that thrash metal doesn't appeal to me. There's a ton of metal and hard rock that clearly does speak to me. This just doesn't, but I can still see where there's a certain sector that proclaims this is the best thrash metal album of all time, or at least enjoys it. It was rough sledding for this author, but I found parts I could appreciate and save it from the 1 bin. It's fine for representing whatever thrash metal or guitar masterbation is. I'll also give the album artwork credit for telling me everything I need to know.

Tiedän että tää levy on klassikonnatsansa ansainnut, mutta onhan tää jotenkin tosi kesyä rässiä verrattuna moneen muuhun bändiin. Ehkä meen takas luolaani kuuntelee Slayerii ja etsimään jotain mitä vihata enemmän kun tätä. Ihan jees siis. Ps.

I am, admittedly, not a fan of metal. That being said, I find some of the songs on this album interesting and engaging. But, like so much metal music, I find it difficult to get past the puerile and heavy-handed lyricism. The opener is a shrine to handling a hard topic poorly (Is Mustaine warning the IRA against "killing for religion" or the Protestant Brits in "Holy War...Punishment Due"? Or is he warning both? Why am I unable to tell no matter how many times I read the lyrics?). I can't help but feel that there is a formula at the heart of many of these songs. I'm not convinced the formula is bad, but it makes listening to the whole album a bit dull since the songs start to run together after a little bit. I am also willing to admit that I might not have the sort of ear that can distinguish the nuances of the songs, though. In all, I don't think I'll listen to it again. 3/10 (but closer to a 2 than a 4)
