Check out the full set from Megadeth Rock In Rio 2010. Megadeth once again tore up the stage blazing through an hour of songs chronicling four decades of thrash metal. If this is an early glimpse to Megadeth?s American Carnage set, thrash fans are in for a great night of metal.
All in all it was a pretty good Megadeth set list. The highlight was Megadeth ripping through the entire Rust in Peace album without a break. I thought “Trust” was an odd opener considering all of the heavier songs that Megadeth have to open a show. Sadly the band skipped over the entire Killing is my Business CD and only played a handful of songs from the second and third albums.
[adinserter name=”366 left”]Depending upon how big of a Megadeth fan you are, you will either be disappointed or happy to hear that they didn?t play many songs of the last few CDs. The majority of the set in between Rust in Peace came from Youthanasia and Countdown to Extinction.
For just a couple of years shy of 50, Dave Mustaine hasn?t lost a thing behind the mic or shredding on the guitar. He sounded better than ever and I saw Megadeth a zillion times back in their heyday in the 80s and 90s. Nothing from Marty Friedman is lost on the Rust in Peace tracks by new guitarist Chris Broderick. Seeing Dave Ellefson back in the band was also quite a comforting site for big Megadeth fans like me.
Megadeth hit the road in America all summer long on the American Carnage tour with Slayer and Testament.
