Megadeth > Metallica

To start off:
I'm a HUGE Metallica fan. In fact my first 5 years of playing electric guitar was solely based on Metallica. I started off playing Bluegrass guitar with my dad, even though my soul wasn't bluegrass.

My first exposure to Metallica was hearing "Nothing Else Matters" on MTV before school waiting for my buddy to pick me up for school. I asked my brother if he had ever heard of them, and of course he had. He handed me a tape that had zero information of it. in that all the 'font' (for lack of a better word) was gone. It was a simple 'blank" tape. It was weathered, and the only thing I could determine that it was a Metallica tape was simply my brother's word. It was Master of Puppets Within 4 weeks, I had owned everything of Metallica and had thrown bluegrass by the wayside.

Long loving Metallica fan for years; devoted. Having heard Megadeth and loving a few of their songs, I was still committed to Metallica. However, years later, I've discovered that I may have been premature in my categorization of music.

Years had passed since I had really 'listened' to Megadeth. Years, as in 10+. Then, I stumbled upon a Megadeth record. While it escapes my memory at this point, the collective memory of the tunes has lead me to the belief that Megadeth is better than Metalica.

While some, to what degree I don't know, may have always held this belief, the discovery of Megadeth is a new one for me. After listening to many records, Im beginning to feel more confident in saying that Megadeth is better. Obviously, it's subjective.

Metallica's "Black" Album is equivalent to Pink Floy'd "The Wall" in terms of impact. However, Megadeth's "Symphony of Destruction", has been severely over-shadowed by the 'Black" album of Metallica. Subsequently, as it had been up to that point, Megadeth had fallen by the wayside. "Symphony of Destructions' release around the same time, was over-shadowed by the Black album.

After what was a universal success of the Black album, Megadeth seemed to finally have received the kill shot. But, if we are to look at the records and time frame comparatively, I think Megadeth got the short end of the stick.

Since then, Megadeth has sustained their status despite radio and marketing support. I've listened to several Megadeth albums/tunes from the "Black" album going forward, and I must say they are not getting the credit that is due. In some aspects, they blow Metallica out of the water. To be honest, they are quickly surpassing Metallica.

I've always been a huge fan of Megadeth since the Mechanix type songs. But since Peace Sells Who's Buying album, Megadeth has gotten the shaft. By a LONG shot.

TLDR....but oh well.

Metallica definitely went more mainstream with the Black album and even more afterwards, plus they started doing some stupid shit like that Lou Reed thing. Meanwhile, Megadeth pretty much kept doing what they had always been doing.

Dave Mustaine has turned into a major nutjob though.

Yep. Megadeth seemed to do what they've always done; radio be damned. I think there are so many 'Metallica' fans that are missing out on Megadeth/Metallica (Kill 'Em all, "Ride the Lightning" ettc) type music they've never heard because it's never been on the radio etc.

Mustaine lost his mind??

Why? Because he decided to stop doing drugs and become a Christian?

I've seen many recent interviews with Mustaine and he's more sane now than he's ever been. He's extremely intelligent, well-spoken, and grounded.

I'm pretty sure that it's probably because, as you said, he stopped doing drugs and became a Christian. But I would also guess the fact that he's a conservative and has been outspoken about it in recent years has made cosmo cry.

I recently read his biography-very well written and entertaining. He wrote most of the songs for Metallica-but was a pain in the ass for them. Lars wanted to be the king and as long as Dave was there telling him the shut the **** up when he got bossy- Lars couldn't control the band.

They put him on the bus from new york-hungry, hung over with zero money. He had to beg for food back to LA and move back with his Mom. It is amazing he ever came back from that.

Yeah dave can be a dick-especially in his drinking years-but when you read his book-most had it coming to them and he was standing up for himself.

That last CD totally killed it-better than anything Metallica has put out in decades.

"Rust in Peace" is the best thrash metal album ever, period. I like Slayer and Anthrax, but the Marty Friedman era of Megadeth is a lineup that transcends speed metal and puts Megadeth up there with Black Sabbath and Motorhead for me.

For anybody that's never heard it, you should do yourself a favor and listen to Friedman's 1988 solo album "Dragon's Kiss".

I guess I never really directly addressed the original question.

For me, Megadeth is in my pantheon of great bands - bands that I LOVE.

Metallica is one of those bands that I "like". I actually only own one Metallica album, "Kill 'Em All".

And as to the original topic, I was a teen during the Metallica/Megadeth origins. Like Dayze, probably one of the earliest guitar riffs I ever learned was the beginning to One. And I spent a ton of time learning songs off the Kill Em All album. I loved Metallica. But I always kind of like Megadeth a little more.

Since Metallica went mainstream in the 90s, Megadeth was easily the better band to me. More recently, I enjoyed Metallica's Death Magnetic album and felt that it was going back to their roots a bit. But it still wasn't the original Metallica. Frankly, I don't think that they will ever get back that vibe.

Graduated HS in 1991.

I too loved Metallica, Megadeth, Overkill, Slayer, Death Angel, Anthrax, Testament, and too many more to name. I was skater punk, as were most of my friends.

However, I was also drawn to Ozzy, Dio, Yngwie Malmsteen, Joe Satriani, and stuff like that at the same time. I had a "thing" for guitar virtuosity.

For me, "Rust in Peace" and "Countdown to Extinction" are the perfect blend of BOTH and will always occupy a very special place in my musical psyche.

Right on, brother. Class of '90 here. The only ones of those that I didn't really get into much are Overkill and Death Angel. But definitely all of those other ones.
