Album Review: Megadeth – Super Collider

The world’s state-of-the-art speed metal band is now MegaDave lite.

CoverThe other reviews aren’t entirely wrong. Dave Mustaine isn’t in the mood to play thrash metal, but he could have made a few good rock songs. Megadeth‘s 2013 album Super Collider opens with ‘Kingmaker’, with MegaDave snarling about wanting everything that makes him feel alright and everything that’s before his eyes, and I love that he’ll never get over how he’s more deserving than Metallica. After this candid rant comes the title track, which would’ve fit better on Cryptic Writings, because this new Megadeth album shouldn’t have been made, mainly because except these two songs, Mustaine himself isn’t really feeling it. His lack of conviction shows on all on the other tracks. What Megadeth have done here isn’t called selling out, because nobody who loves metal will ever say “Let’s make some soft music and get more fans.” Megadeth have made an album for the heck of it because they had to, and the songwriting on Super Collider is very uninspired. Dave Mustaine has written great songs even without his anger, but here he sounds shallow each and every time he tries to get philosophical. I don’t care about their Thin Lizzy cover on the album, because I haven’t even got my dose of Megadeth from Super Collider.

RATING: 1.5/5
