35th Anniversary Anthology On 180g Vinyl 4LP Box Set!
A greatest hits album featuring 35 Tracks for 35 Years of Megadeth!!!


Metal leviathans celebrate their 35th Anniversary with Warheads On Foreheads, a Greatest Hits album featuring remastered tracks hand-selected by Dave Mustaine. The new anthology spans the metal titans’ career from ‘Killing Is My Business…’ to their 2017 Grammy Award-winning ‘Dystopia’.

“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 US 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!)”

In 1984, Mustaine was determined to start a new band that would be heavier and faster than his peers. His songwriting was rapidly maturing, and he set about combining the attitude and energy of punk, with the power and intricate riffing of metal, along with direct, sociopolitical lyrical content. With David Ellefson on bass and Gar Samuelson on drums, the band recorded their infamous 3-song demo which quickly circulated through the underground tape-trading circuit and became an underground hit leading to a deal with Combat Records.

Warheads On Foreheads starts at that beginning with the early thrashers ‘Rattlehead’ and ‘Mechanix’ from the band’s 1985 debut Killing Is My Business…And Business Is Good, an album that would lay down the blueprint and establish Megadeth as forerunners of what would later be called Thrash Metal.

Megadeth soon signed to Capitol Records and released their 1986 major label debut Peace Sells…But Who’s Buying?, which became the band’s first certified gold record and would go on to become Megadeth’s first platinum selling release. Featured on Warheads On Foreheads are ‘The Conjuring’ and the track ‘Good Mourning/Black Friday’ which Pitchfork describes as “everything great about hardcore, plus a dose of the kind of show-off skill that makes lesser musicians’ fingers bleed.”

Other songs included are ‘In My Darkest Hour’ from their platinum selling So Far, So Good, So What! (1988), ‘Hanger 18’ and ‘Holy Wars…The Punishment Due’ from their Grammy-nominated, platinum album Rust In Peace (1990), and ‘Symphony of Destruction’ and ‘Sweating Bullets’ from their 1992 Grammy- nominated, double platinum release Countdown To Extinction.

Also featured on Warheads On Foreheads are ‘A Tout Le Monde’ and ‘Reckoning Day’ from Megadeth’s 1994 platinum selling release Youthanasia, ‘Kingmaker’ from their 2013 Top Ten release Super Collider, which hit No. 3 on both the Hard Rock Albums and Top Rock Albums charts, ‘She-Wolf’ from the Grammy- nominated, Top Ten release Cryptic Writings (1997) and the title track from the band’s most recent album Dystopia.

Upon its release in 2016, Dystopia reasserted Megadeth’s place at the top of the metal world, equaling the chart impact of their early nineties output, earning the band their first Grammy, as well as rave reviews (The Guardian gave it five out of five stars and stated “Dystopia is an absolutely blistering return to the state-of-the-art bombast and refined technicality.”)

Megadeth burst onto the scene thirty five years ago, virtually inventing a genre and selling more than 38 million albums worldwide, earning numerous accolades including a 2017 Grammy Award for “Best Metal Performance” for the title track ‘Dystopia,’ 12 Grammy nominations, and scoring five consecutive platinum albums.
