Let us revisit the year of 1986 for a moment, because this year was probably THE biggest year in the history of Thrash Metal. Three of the biggest acts in Thrash metal released what would become their most impressive works to date. That being Metallica's 'Master Of Puppets', Slayer's 'Reign In Blood' and Megadeth's 'Peace Sells...', Three massive albums that raised the bar in Thrash Metal beyond comprehension. The only difference however, is that Megadeth still had much more to offer after this release, which is why they continue to be a favourite of mine.

"I sneak in my own house, it's four in the morning, I've had too much to drink, said I was out with the boys. I creep in my bedroom, I slip into bed, I know if I wake her I'll wake up....dead."

We all know what happens from there. Poland kicks off with an awesome fucking solo, and your brain dies from the lethal injection of metal you've just shot into your bloodstream. "Peace Sells" is the album that put Megadeth on the map. Mankind is and always will be at war with itself, much like the riffage of each instrument will be in constant competition with each other on this album. Yet ideas of peace still sell in this world. Let me ask you this, then; are you buying?

A lot of riffs seem like seperated on their own don't really blend well in the whole songs !

One of my Top 10 All-Time Overrated Metal Albums



I think most old-school thrash is a pile of rubbish, and even I find that statement amusing. This album deserves all the overrating it gets.

The title track is a little cringe-worthy but other than that this is a pretty solid thrash release. If Megadeth released more albums like this and Ruse in Peace, I'd probably even consider myself a fan.

Fantastic album, deserves more credit than it gets. Possibly the epitome of 80s thrash.

Such excellent album. Songs like "Wake up dead", "The Conjuring" and "Devils Island" kick ass.

One of the most over-rated of the classics. Killing Is My Business... may not have the sound but it had superior material. No song delivers as much as "Devil's Island".

This album fully clicked with me on New Year's Eve. In terms of song-writting and specially metal virtuosity it's one of the best thrash albums ever. Metallica were writting longer songs at this point, being more epic, but Hetfield or Kirk couldn't have come up with such exquisite riffs and catchy riffs. I still find the production somewhat clunky and the song not quite "epic", so Rust in Peace is still my favourite, but still, really awesome album from a musical staindpoint. And catchy as fuck, I don't think metal "purists" realise just how catchy good thrash and early death-metal actually was, which kinda explain why current thrash generation no longer write memorable stuff. You could translate this album in another genre and it would still be great if done wright.

Less speed more thrash than debut. Well, I miss the debut's sound, this isn't a bad album either, but I feel like it's missing something; maybe a couple of more faster tracks would fix it to as good as Killem All & Ride the Lightning. Classic stuff anyhow.

Devil's Island truly is my favorite track but overall this album is really well written and quite addictive compared to that mediocre album before this.
