Megadeth w/ Black Label Society, Device, Hellyeah, Newsted and Death Division
Dave Mustaine may have been kicked out of Metallica decades ago, but he’s doing all right for himself: He went on to form Megadeth, one of the most successful thrash metal bands of all time. They’ve also been the most productive of the so-called “Big Four” of thrash-metal, out-recording Metallica, Anthrax and Slayer. In 2007, the group renewed critical interest with United Abominations, a heavily political return to form. They continued in fine form on 2009’s Endgame, and 2011’s Thirteen, their heaviest records since the ’90s. Keeping pace, they released another new album, Super Collider in June.
