Vic's back is turned to us, so is he leaving? I hope not. Quite a beautiful cover.

New World Order and Millenium of the Blind?! Wow... that's surprising. Is he running out of that creative spark? Haha. My interest is further piqued by this...

God, what a shoddy looking cover. Photoshop is the enemy of modern cover art.

"Deadly Nightshade".... that couldn't be a STS cover could it?

I find that highly unlikely... anyways, having 3 old songs (4 if you include "Sudden Death") on a new studio album is more than enough already, without there being covers on the album as well!

Yeah I usually think most Photoshop works are hit and miss but I liked this one. Can't say that tracklist "looks" decent, compared to Endgame. Some tracks look the sham ones that were on United Abominations. BUT IT'S JUST TITLES.

As much as I love Megadeth, I can't help but feel this is going to suck. I found Sudden Death and Public enemy pretty boring.

You're right! I missed that. I really like that song too... but what the hell. That's the third track that's already been released...
Angelic Storm - 09.09.2011 at 21:22  
Nope, "Black Swan" wasn't a Japanese bonus. lol It was a pre order bonus if you bought the album ("United Abominations") through their official website.

It's actually the 4th track that's already been released... "Sudden Death" was released as a single last year, as well as being included on Guitar Hero: Warriors Of Rock.

Ugly cover, shitty song, oh dear...
JakeTheSage - 09.09.2011 at 22:11  
The singles so far have sounded really good, if a little stale in light of how much Dave's been recycling sounds lately.

This is their last record under the current contract, which Dave says he isn't interested in renewing. I don't know if that means he'll be retiring or just picking up a new deal somewhere. He seems really proud of this and I wouldn't be surprised if he wants to make it his swan song.
iMorphball - 10.09.2011 at 01:31  
We've heard a good few songs off this record so far, -technically-. I'm excited to see the rerecordings of Millenium of the Blind and New World Order! Public Enemy and Sudden Death are great songs, and Black Swan is a great song, too.

I'm excited for this album.

Well obviously all the people who dont like the artwork or track list know everything about art, music and photoshop! Ha Ha what idiots! Who cares if its done in photoshop or a drawing by a 10 year old kid, im sure Megadeth dont give a shit about your moronic opinions anyway but why do we have to endure them too! If you dont have anything of any intelligence to say, dont bother! If your not a fan, dont listen or look. Leave the space for people who do like it, theres enough negativity in this world already thanks! Personally, I love the artwork and cant wait to hear the new album whether its got old songs or new ones, so stay metal or F..K OFF!

So just because you don't agree with an opinion that makes it "moronic"? Please, grow up! Being a fan doesn't mean you have to praise every single thing they do you know. And I fail to see how not liking the artwork or taking issue with the tracklist is somehow a proclamation of "knowing everything" about art/music. I suppose the people who do like it don't fall into that category? Yay, double standards ahoy!

Being a real fan means giving your genuine, honest opinion about said band's work. Praising all a band's work purely because it is them isn't being a fan, it's being a sheep. Just because I don't think the artwork is amazing (although it is quite a bit better than the "Endgame" artwork!), and I widened my eyes a bit at seeing so many old songs being on the album, doesn't stop me from being a fan of Megadeth. And if you think it does, you have no inkling of what it means to be a true fan of music.
R'Vannith - 10.09.2011 at 12:16  
The cover isn't terrible, also if you look close enough you can make out Vic's face in the centre. As for the song.. pretty standard fare I guess but solid nonetheless. If they can deliver an album full of such songs I'd be content.

Hey, well spotted! I never noticed that... Although his face has been hidden on a couple of their other album covers as well. And yep, the cover isn't terrible, its definitely superior to the "Endgame" cover, which was awful...

Yeah it's much better than Endgame, I think it's quite a decent album cover myself, the best one in quite a while at least.

It's the best cover since "The System Has Failed", and at least Vic is properly on ther cover this time! lol

However, looking at other artwork that will be featured on the vinyl special edition, I really think this one would have been better as the actual cover:



This one also great too! (and clever! if you look closely, you can see that each symbol represents each one of Megadeth's albums) xD



And here's another one...

Fredd - 10.09.2011 at 16:53

Fenrisborg - 10.09.2011 at 17:54  
Agreed. The album cover would have looked pretty cool without the candles.

I noticed that, and it is a very kewl feature of the cover! As for those taking issue with the candles, Id have to agree. Its not the fact that candles are there, it's the fact that the candles look as if they've been taken from an entirely different picture, and inserted into the image with Vic. It doesn't all look like the same image. lol :\
Daggon - 10.09.2011 at 23:41  
The cover artwork is quite meh, those vinyl editions are pretty sweet, but oh well...
Ah, by the way, "Black Swan"?!? Really? that awful song from the "United Abominations" album? Oh my... Also other 3 songs we already know (Sudden Death, Millennium Of The Blind and New World Order).
My expectations are too low for this album, sorry Vic.

Youve obviously got nothing better to do than sitting around complaining about bands art work and track listings, I think thats more childish than anything! Why cant you just be happy that they have a new album coming out instead of picking it to bits before youve even got it!

Well said my friend. Well said. Everyone always seems to forget that this is all opinion based. People get upset, I'm inthe same boat as you, sure I LOVE Megadeth and I will absolutely be buying this album, but is it a bit of a letdown that the cover is "eh?" or that 4 out of 13 songs I've heard already in one way or another? Too me, Yes. Now with that being said I am looking forward to these said 4 songs' reinterpretations, and heck maybe the album cover will grow with me. who knows, we shall find out in late Oct./Early Nov.!

Oh wow I completely overlooked that until now This album hasn't had my attention to the full yet anyway, with all the other stuff thats come out over the last couple of months, but I guess now it's the next one to look forward too. Hopefully having 4 tracks im already familiar with doesn't leave a bad taste as I enjoyed Endgame and would be good to see Megadeth making a real consistant comeback after United Abominations, which I initially enjoyed also but hasn't lasted well. Both tracks released so far are pretty good but nothing special but I'll keep some faith in 'ol Dave to deliver some awesome Thrash.
