no rest for “rust in peace”

To put it simply, Megadeth’s “Rust in Peace” is one of the greatest metal albums ever recorded.  Any fan of metal music cannot deny this.  It also unfortunately marks the last good album Megadeth released, but hey, if you’re going to take a turn for the worse, might as well go out with a bang.  It’s been 20 years since “Rust in Peace” was unleashed, and to commemorate the event, Megadeth is doing a spring tour where they will play the entire album at each show!  I’m bummed they aren’t coming to my area, but they will be here in August on the American Carnage Tour with Slayer (rescheduled from this month), so maybe they’ll still play a lot from the album then.  Testament, also part of the American Carnage Tour, is opening for Megadeth on their spring tour, along with old-school thrashers Exodus (Metallica’s Kirk Hammett was Exodus’ original guitarist, if you didn’t know).  Testament has been around almost as long as Megadeth, Slayer and other thrash metal pioneers, but have not gotten as popular as their cohorts.  But among metal music circles they are well respected, and deservedly so.  And they will be playing their first album, 1987’s “The Legacy” in its entirety when they open for Megadeth this spring.  It’s a great album, although not nearly as landmark and awesome as their second release “The New Order.”  But what a killer show – the entire “Legacy” album followed by “Rust in Peace!”  Here are the dates – hope you can catch it.  And if you do, let us know how it was!
