Smoke, stale beer, and sweat filled the air of the Hollywood Palladium as metal legends Megadeth took to the stage. With massive LED screens behind them, they put on a spectacular performance that could have rivaled most arena shows. A sea of smiling faces and screaming voices filled the sold out venue that Sunday night. The lighting was spectacular and the massive pillars of smoke that burst from the floor added to the intensity of the show. Water bottles, shirts and shoes flew through the air as wave of devil horns flew up to the sky. (One shoe even hit me in the back of the head).
American Thrash Metal band Megadeth is easily one of the biggest names in metal today, being credited as one of the “big four” bands of the genre with Metallica, Anthrax, and Slayer. With 15 full length albums and their new album Dystopia which debuted at number three on the billboard 200 chart, they continue to reestablish their relevance even after all these years.
