Editorial Reviews

Megadeth s Dave Mustaine has personally overseen the new 20th Anniversary Edition of the band s most popular album, 1992 s double Platinum-certified Countdown to Extinction,
Presented in a 2CD lift-top box, Countdown to Extinction s new commemorative edition pairs the remastered original album with a 1992 concert, recorded live at San Francisco s Cow Palace, which has never before been released in its entirety. The concert audio has been newly remixed for this release.

The lift top box includes a booklet with a new liner notes essay by music journalist Kory Grow, a 24 x 36 poster and four collectible postcards.

History

Countdown to Extinction, Megadeth s fifth studio album, was recorded in Los Angeles in 1992 as rioting raged across the city in response to the Rodney King trial verdicts. American tensions weren t limited to LA, by any means, as the Gulf War was still fresh in people s minds, the state of the environment was becoming headline news, and President George H.W. Bush was seeking reelection in a heated campaign season. Out of this turmoil, Megadeth was inspired to create Countdown to Extinction, considered by many to be the band s best and most accessible album
