Megadeth - Warheads On Foreheads (Greatest Hits) 180g Vinyl 4LP

Megadeth Warheads On Foreheads (Greatest Hits) 180g Vinyl 4LP 


A greatest hits album featuring 35 Tracks for 35 Years of Megadeth!!!

Metal leviathans celebrate their 35th Anniversary with Warheads On Foreheads, a Greatest Hits album featuring remastered tracks hand-selected by Dave Mustaine.


The new anthology spans the metal titans career fromKilling Is My Business to their 2017 Grammy Award-winning Dystopia.


Thirty five years ago I chose the name Megadeth for my band and I see these songs as the most efficient weapons in the bands arsenal says Dave Mustaine.


WOF is a US military term for targeting efficiency, Mustaine continues, it's all about using the right tool for the job and these tracks were created for maximum destruction (or stopping power, or something else!)


In 1984, Mustaine was determined to start a new band that would be heavier and faster than his peers. His songwriting was rapidly maturing, and he set about combining the attitude and energy of punk, with the power and intricate riffing of metal, along with direct, sociopolitical lyrical content.


With David Ellefson on bass and Gar Samuelson on drums, the band recorded their infamous 3-song demo which quickly circulated through the underground tape-trading circuit and became an underground hit leading to a deal with Combat Records.


Warheads On Foreheads starts at that beginning with the early thrashers Rattlehead and Mechanix from the bands 1985 debut Killing Is My Business And Business Is Good, an album that would lay down the blueprint and establish Megadeth as forerunners of what would later be called Thrash Metal.


Megadeth soon signed to Capitol Records and released their 1986 major label debut Peace Sells But Whos Buying?, which became the bands first certified gold record and would go on to become Megadeths first platinum selling release.


Featured on Warheads On Foreheads are The Conjuring and the track Good Mourning/Black Friday which Pitchfork describes as everything great about hardcore, plus a dose of the kind of show-off skill that makes lesser musicians fingers bleed.
