Megadeth - Endgame Review
Ever since Megadeth's return after Dave's nerve injury fans have been waiting for a true return to form, well this is probably about as close as they're ever gonna get, Endgame really does come across an inter breeding of Rust In Peace and Countdown To Extinction.
"This Day We Fight!"-Old-school Megadeth through and through. Very thrashy and extremely fast. You can feel some of Dave's old aggression in this song, a real return to form!
44 Minutes" is a simple but catchy main riff with some great vocals on Dave's part. The song hints at its thrash roots but the chorus is purely melodic rock at its best. There's some great soloing too! This is one of my early fav on the album!
Other highlights include the epic "The Hardest Part of Letting Go…Sealed With A Kiss", the fast, brutal, and thrashy "Headcrusher" and the excellent "How The Story Ends".
Endgame really is a return to form for Dave and the boys, ladies and gentlemen, Megadeth have finally returned!
