Deluxe double LP reissue of Megadeth's classic debut album!
Includes seven live audio tracks from VHS tapes found in Dave Mustaine's own attic!
Plus Megadeth's 1984 3-track demo and the once removed cover of Lee Hazelwood's "The Boots"
Megadeth have been turning their focus on the fact that it's the heavy metal rockers' 35th anniversary this year, and the promotional activities continue with a brand new deluxe reissue of their debut disc, Killing Is My Business ... And Business Is Good! on black vinyl double LP!
The subtitle of the edition is The Final Kill, alluding to the idea that the collection has been completely restored to Dave Mustaine's intended vision. The band welcomed Mark Lewis to remix the album, while Ted Jensen handled the remastering, with the new version including previously unheard parts on performances throughout the disc, including a missing drum performance that was discovered during the mixing sessions.
In addition to the original album, fans can also check out seven live audio tracks accessed from VHS tapes that Mustaine discovered in his attic. The set also includes Megadeth's 1984 three song demo and their previously removed cover of "These Boots." The track has been added back to the record with recut vocals intended to maintain the integrity of both the original song and Megadeth's own snarling rendition.
The set is further enhanced by a new album cover featuring a fully executed sculpture of the iconic skull that has been lost over the many years since the album's initial release. The packaging also includes classic flyers and band photos pulled from their archive of timeless metal moments from Megadeth's storied 35 year history, along with Dave Mustaine's liner notes.
"I am just as much amazed at the music we made as I am at the pure fact that we survived it all," says Mustaine.
