||METALFEST 2012 - MEGADETH CONFIRMED AS HEADLINER! EXCLUSIVE FESTIVAL SHOWS 2012
18th January 2012
Strap yourselves in, dear friends, because Megadeth have been confirmed to headline Megadeth 2012! The festival organisers say that the band are going to play exclusively at Metalfest in Germany, Austria, Croatia, Italy, Poland and Czech Republic and say that you won't see Megadeth play any other summer festivals 2012 in these countries!
Megadeth, who released milestone albums such as 'Peace Sells... But Who's Buying?', 'Rust In Peace' or 'Countdown To Extinction' have eternalized themselves in Metal history and are rightly on top of the Heavy Metal movement.

In almost 30 years of their career they've achieved what others can only dream of, sold millions of records and among Metal fans all over the world, Megadeth are considered to be favorites no matter what. A Megadeth record belongs to every Metal household around the globe, without doubt.
Recently the band released their new work called 'Th1rt3en'. Their last effort 'Endgame' had already proven to be a step into the right direction and 'Th1rt3en' should leave all critics speechless, once again. They sound as aggressive, raw and rampant as ever, Mustaine's distinctive guitar play appears to be hugely currish and the riffing feels sharp as a butchers knife.
Dave Mustaine's vocals sound very much sinister and the rhythm section offers those furious riffs a pounding and grooving counterpart, that makes tracks such as 'Whose Life (Is It Anyways?)', 'Fast Lane' or '13' a roaring and crushing statement of Megadeth!
