    This San Diego thing is like taking a dead beaten horse, bury it, resume it and beat it again

    Honestly, if it wasn't for the printed graphics, I would've bought at least one VMNT. I got a In Deth We Trust Zero as a birthday gift last year, the thing is surprisingly good and the neck is super confortable.

    it's a stylized picture of the Large Hadron Collider. There were lots of memes about it back in the dark days of proto memes. Look up "Large Hadron Collider Meme" and you'll see it. So the album has a picture of a particle accelerator/collider as the album art. I actually wanted to like the album just because I liked the art. The rest is spot on though.

    Got bored so I took a photo of the 50th Anniversary V and photoshopped what I thought would be a cool Mustaine Gibson

    we're almost back to the Y2KV.
    I think I'll keep my black/gold KV2 and that will do the trick ;)

    If you have a Jackson made between the '80s and '00, I'd say hang on to it for sure ;)

    I had the pro kv and the y2kv
    The pro i was bothered by the kahler saddles that were too high despite a set up
    Y2kv wasnt as edgy as a real kv ;)
    So sold them and bought a kv2. It has lived but changed parts to have it black and gold like a grover jackson mustaine i saw one day on reverb. Looks great now ;)

    Obviously, neither Dave nor whichever company won the rose owes it to the internet populace to cater the 24hr gear hype cycle, but also BOOOOOOO NOW I'M BORED WITH THIS.

    Not a chance in hell. BC Rich hasn’t had its shit together, whoever has owned it, for over 10 years. No way he’d step into that mess.

    If it’s Kramer, I’ll fucking puke. Those aren’t even made in the US.

    BTW, he just posted a notice on IG that an announcement will be made by 2/28. He’s pictured with the two sharp horns of a black V sticking out from behind his head.

    You’ve got to be out of your fucking mind of Endgame was just “OK” for you. Wow.... It’s the best album they did since RIP and Countdown. Chris’ playing took the band several steps up. It’s too bad the two after that were letdowns and Dave & Chris never seemed to be on the same page.

    “OK”. I just can’t....

    And who gives a shit about what the cover looks like?

    Yeah I got that part at the time, it's just a really lazy cover. It's a literal first page google image search album cover.

    It's all subjective. To me Endgame some really fun moments, some really fun riffing but the vocals/lyrics and song arrangements aren't on the same level as an album like System. It's certainly not a bad album. It's alright which is more than be said for TWNAH, 13 and Supercollider. I would put Endgame above Dystopia. Pick a random song from Endgame and chances are you'll have some fun riffing and solos. If album covers didn't matter bands wouldn't bother with them. They're a big part of the presentation of an album IMO. Anywhere near as close as the music itself? No, but it's part of it.

    Im saying this as a HUGE megadeth fan.
    The system has failed, united abominations, endgame and dystopia were all 75% pretty damn good. Thirteen has too good songs on it but the tone is trash, supercollider has the opening song and then its alllll downhill from their.

    13 was just an easy cash in, with re-hashing some old songs on it. Like "lets give the label an quick record...
    Endgame and dystopia are the best they did in the last 10 yrs.
    I understand Broderick leaving after the last 2 records.
    The guy is a beast, too technical sometimes but Mustaine could have used him better.
    Kiko fits maybe better in Marty's shoes( I would have seen Gus G too strangely) and I hope Dave lets him bring some ideas...
    anyways...still waiting for that V...

    Dave said around the recording/release of Thirteen that he wasn't happy with how Roadrunner was treating the band, plus it was their last contractually obligated record. Given half the songs were just old demos/B-sides re-recorded (plus one song that wasn't even meant for an album), it was pretty obvious that the album was just a rush job to get out of their Roadrunner contract.
