Megadeath KillingReleased in 1985, Megadeth’s debut was a statement of intent. It was manic, cutting edge, and above all, dangerous.

Dave Mustaine formed the band after being fired from Metallica and that energy courses throughout the album. For many, Killing… fell short due to the poor production. It never bothered me, but if it did for you, then you’ll love this reissue. The album has been remixed and remastered, features new vocals by Mustaine on These Boots, boasts new artwork and liner notes, and includes seven live audio tracks from VHS tapes that Mustaine found in his attic, as well as the band’s 1984 Skull Beneath the Skin demo! Phew. Killing… remains an iconic album and has lost none of its ferocity.

Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good: The Final Kill (Special Edition) is out now via Century Media/EMI.
