Megadeth celebrate their 35th Anniversary with the release of Warheads On Foreheads, a 35-track, career retrospective on 22nd March 2019. The anthology spans their entire studio recording career, from their first album, Killing Is My Business… to their 2017 Grammy® Award winning release, Dystopia and will be available as a three-CD set, a four-LP set and a digital edition via UMe Recordings.

You can pre-order the boxset here. A limited edition, four-LP set pressed on silver coloured vinyl will be available exclusively through the band’s online store – here – with deluxe bundles to be announced.

“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 U.S. 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!)”.

On 15th Febuary 2019 the band will also reissue two of their iconic records with 2001’s The World Needs A Hero and 2004’s The System Has Failed through BMG each remastered and featuring bonus tracks. Both CD’s have been out of print for five years and will be back on vinyl format for the first time in 15 years.

Here’s five of our favourite moments from Megadeth’s 35 year career:

1. Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?

2. In My Darkest Hour

3. Symphony of Destruction

4. Wake Up Dead

5. Sweating Bullets


I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
