MEGADETH veröffentlichen “Warchest”

Oct 9th, 2007

Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Capitol/EMI have collaborated to create and deploy the ultimate Megadeth boxed set called “Warchest”, which will be released on October 12th.

The 4-CD+DVD collection features more than six hours of digitally remastered content, hand-selected by Mustaine, including 30 audio and video tracks making their global release debuts, and an additional three tracks that have never before been released in the U.S.  Warchest’s October 12th release caps Mustaine and Capitol/EMI’s in-depth Megadeth catalog remastering and restoration campaign, which has encompassed the band’s Capitol studio albums, while also adding new audio and video collections to the band’s arsenal.

“Warchest“ is the ultimate MEGADETH-collection, completed with digitally remastered album-clippings, soundtrack- and compilation-versions, previously unreleased live- and studio-recordings as well as interview-clips from more than 20 years of band history. On top of that, one finds a complete 75-minute-live-set from the “Clash of the Titans”-tour from 1990, a DVD with highlights from a show from ’92, the year of the release of “Countdown to Extinction” in this jewel box – two historical shows which are released for the first time ever. The cover of this special box is an ammunition belt which shines in 3-D – the 36-page-booklet, refined with a text by Ian Christe plus a clearly arranged discography and uncountable pictures and photos are part of the box, too.

Dave Mustaine says: “This is by far the best and most voluminous insight into everything that has to do with MEGADETH, and is at the same time a real crash course in Heavy Metal. Thinking back to the most important and most notorious shows and all line-up changes it was a real adrenalin kick to listen to this box. I just have to give it to my old band colleagues, no matter how turbulent the times were, they played marvellously without turning a hair, and I love every single moment of this collection!”
