Back in October 2005, Dave Mustaine (vocals and rhythm guitar), brothers Glen (lead guitar) and Shawn Drover (drums), and James MacDonough (bass) played to a rabid crowd in Buenos Aires, Argentina. First of all, this dvd was long overdue. The band roared through classics and a few songs from The System Has Failed while the crowd went nuts, even singing along to the guitars. I at first was a little skeptical about buying it because the setlist on the dvd is incomplete (they played Skin O’ My Teeth, The Scorpion, Die Dead Enough, Angry Again, Train Of Consequences, Of Mice And Men and Sweating Bullets that night, but they’re not on here), but that skeptism went away right as it started.
In case you don’t know by now, the band is putting out a new album on May 15 on Roadrunner Records called United Abominations. A demo of the song Gears Of War is online, as well as the first track off the album entitled Sleepwalker. Expect some old school metal when you check out the new cd.
