Head Crushing Metal Ecstasy
on March 3, 2010
Wow!!!!!!! By saying, "This album shreds, rips, and kills anything in its path," just does not do it justice. I don't have the words to explain how awesome it is. It is definitely a 5 star album. This album makes Metallica's Death Magnetic look really, really pathetic, like they have training wheels on their guitars. Nothing against Metallica, but I am so sick and tired of waiting around to see if they are going make another TRULY killer album.
.....I'm not going to hold my breath.
On the other hand, Megadeth's "End Game" succeeds on the level of metal excellence that Metallica can only wish for. Dave Mustaine and the boys revived my faith in old school metal bands. They prove here that they can still kick (_|_) and destroy anything in their path. This album is good, not because I'm a fan of the band and want it to be, but because its coolness exists without me having to think about it. That's what really makes an album great. It's when you play an album and you don't have to think about whether you like it or not, or convince yourself it's good just because you like the band. There is no "trying" to like End Game. It's just ripping metal at its finest. Very easy to like, and very enjoyable to listen to. End Game will go down as a classic release from Megadeth. Unfortunately, I can not say the same about Metallica's new album.
