Megadeth go back to the day

Megadeth have released a video for 2004 track Back In The Day, which has never been seen before.

The launch marks 10 years since the arrival of their 10th studio album The System Has Failed, on which the song originally appeared. The concept for the promo was created by mainman Dave Mustaine.

Megadeth have also confirmed their first five major-label albums are to be made available as limited-edition vinyl picture discs.

Capitol Records originally released Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?, So Far, So Good… So What!, Rust In Peace, Countdown To Extinction and Youthanasia in two-year steps from 1986 until 1994. The new versions are remastered by Mustaine and pressed on heavyweight vinyl. It’s the first time the two later recordings have been available as picture discs.

The series is due for launch via UMe in November. Megadeth last week cancelled a string of shows, including their appearance on Motorhead’s Motorboat cruise, as Mustaine was ordered to rest for health reasons.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
