Some are calling Megadeth’s latest album Dystopia their best since Rust in Peace. I wouldn’t go that far since the band has released plenty of high quality albums since Rust. I will say Dystopia definitely has a Rust in Peace sort of vibe, but then again so did Endgame, which was very old-school thrash heavy.
Drummer Chris Adler (Lamb of God) and guitarist Kiko Loureiro (Angra) definitely add a terrific adrenaline boost to the band. Adler has often said in interviews after joining Megadeth that he’s a life long fan and was incredibly excited to be part of the band. Dave Mustaine must have been stoked to have this sort of energy in the band because Dystopia blows away Super Collider by a wide margin. This is a seriously fabulous album and long time Megadeth fans should be very pleased with the outcome.
