I don’t mean the TV show. I mean reason. Conspiracy theories, paranoia, obsession… When do people lose their minds? Is everything really like the matrix and we’re all imagining shit? Don’t get me wrong. I love the TV show. I’m a major fan of LOST. Even when it got LOST, but it has finally started to find its way again. I hope the same can be said of Heroes when it decides to return to the broadcast spectrum.
In the meantime, I’ve felt a need to bang my head. I had to dig through my archives to find a little gem by Megadeth. Normally I’d run Megadeth on a friday for a fallen friday type thing, however I occasionally get a little lost in finding new music. Not for a lack of trying, but sometimes when really good music comes across my radar and it’s not on iTunes or now Amazon for purchase, then it defeats the main purpose of promoting music to buy. Plus I reserve sunday’s for that stuff.
Also, I can run into a glut of stuff I’m not feeling and don’t feel inspired to write about. That’s my nice way of saying I don’t find it worthy of my mouth.
What can I think of about Megadeth? Well, first off, I know that the guitar playing is of the classic metal that marked years of stuff in the 80’s and early 90’s before Nirvana destroyed the style. Dave Mustane was one of the original guitarists for Metallica. Apparently he butted heads too much with James and struck out on his own to form Megadeth. The rest is history. Both rose to fame. There is beginning to be a bit of a resurgence of classic metal. Every now and then I hear about a tour featuring Megadeth. Or maybe it’s cause they’re playing a show in LA or something and I think it’s part of a tour.
Dave has a very distinct style. There is no question about it. I’m pretty sure that if someone played me a song written and recorded by Dave, I’d know that it was Dave even if I had never heard it before. That’s the tell-tale sign of an artist who’s musical DNA is imprinted to the core of everything they do. Dave’s got it. Metallica has it too. I’ve been told I’ve got it. There’s a lot to be said about that.
If don’t have any Megadeth, how can you possibly expect to bang your head appropriately when needed? Go get it now. Legally of course!
