Review Summary: The best Megadeth live DVD to date.

Megadeth seems now to be a well rounded band in term of dvd release. They've now released a biographic dvd(Behind The Music), a live one(Rude Awakening), A video one (Rusted Pieces) and a kind of all in one dvd (The Arsenal Of Megadeth). Now it's been a year and a half since the band annonced that they will release another live DVD recorded in Argentina in october 2005. The dvd include 17 songs that went through all megadeth Discography. This DVD has basically no bonus stuff, but the thing is that it doesn't need to. For such a low price everybody that wants to see Megadeth live should buy this dvd.

Content

When you look at this setlist you'll see that some of their best song are missing. In fact the band decided to cut 6 songs from the original setlist. This is the weak point of the dvd, especially since it has no bonus stuff. The songs that were cut are: Skin O' My Teeth, Die Dead Enough, Sweating Bullets, The Scorpions, Angry Again, Of Mice And Men and Train of Consequences. The band also said that they've recorded an acoustic unplugged show to release with this dvd. In fact, you only see a couple of seconds of this show.

Performance

The band seems to have a new soul with the Drover brothers now in the band. Mustaine voices is in better shape than on Rude Awakening. The big surprised for me is Glen Drover. This guy can shred! he's a lot better than Al Pitrelli. The drum part are well played by Shawn but Degrasso was a lot better in my opinion. He was more impressive and fun to watch. The Crowd is the 5th member of this show. Wow...I must say WOW! South american crowds seems to be the best one. They're chanting over a trash riff which is kind of weird and fun. The band played their most intense song in perfection but the interting part of this show are the song that are emotional to Dave. A Tout le monde is probably the highlight of the show. The crowd is so amazing, they're singing so loud. Dave seems to be in shock. The other highlight is when they played the only risk song of this set, I'll be there. Dave dedicated this one to to the crowd. He said: ''That's you're song, remember that''. Another Strong point of this dvd is that the guitar dual are well filmed. I mean you don't see a guy buying a beer while Drover do the most insane sweeping licks of all-time. They often went on the extended stage part in front to play their solo. Drover owns especially in Hangar 18 and Return to hangar. It seems so easy for him. They also played the spanish version chorus in the extended par of Trust which is interesting. The usual encore is still Symphony of destruction, peace sells and holy wars. The shows ended when mustaine thanks argentina for being such a awesome crowd.

Pros:

Quality image and sound
Solos are perfect
Crowd chanting
Mustaine

Cons:

Too short???

Highlights:

A Tout Le monde
I'll Be There
Set The World Afire
In My Darkest Hour

cool format, but the "performance" section was your only real input as far as a personal review goes. It's a dvd, so good nonetheless.

Nah, I would say that the band got really bad after Youthanasia and then they became better (again) when TSHF was released. But thats my opinion.This Message Edited On 03.08.07

I'm not the world's biggest fan of Youthanasia either although The Killing Road and Train Of Consequences are good tracks.

I'm so angry about the fact that Skin O My teeth has been cut. Why those songs? Why cut them? the dvd is only 1 hour an a half. It could have been 2 hours without any problem.

Anything after Peace Sells kinda stinks IMO, except for TSHF...
Their new song "Sleepwalker" is pretty awesome, however.

yes, I think Youthansia is my favorite megadeth album. It has great songs that I really love on it!

And I would have to disagree Deththrasher...the system has failed I did not like at all... to me in my own opinion was megadeths worst album.

So Far so Good so What is the most underrated megadeth album. Songs like Set The World Afire, In My Darkest Hour, Hook In Mouth are classics.
