Inside Dave Mustaine’s Warchest
Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Capitol/EMI have collaborated to create and deploy the ultimate Megadeth boxed set: Warchest. The 4-CD+DVD collection features more than six hours of digitally remastered content, hand-selected by Mustaine, including 30 audio and video tracks making their global release debuts, and an additional three tracks that have never before been released in the U.S. Warchest’s October 2 release caps Mustaine and Capitol/EMI’s in-depth Megadeth catalog remastering and restoration campaign, which has encompassed the band’s Capitol studio albums, while also adding new audio and video collections to the band’s arsenal.
Armed with digitally remastered career-defining album cuts, soundtrack and compilation sides, unreleased live and studio performances and interview clips spanning more than 20 years, Warchest is the ultimate Megadeth compendium. Included in the trove are a full 75-minute live set from a night on the 1990 Clash of the Titans tour and a DVD of highlights from a 1992 stop supporting Countdown—two historical shows, both making their release debuts on Warchest. The set’s custom “vac-u-form” packaging showcases a 3-D ammo belt on its front and a 36-page booklet with an essay by Ian Christe and a comprehensive discography, complemented by an array of photos and images.
Dave Mustaine says, “This is, by far, the best and most comprehensive look at all-things-Mega if you had to get a crash-course in metal! With some of the most famous, and infamous, shows and any of the fluid, or flammable, lineups, listening to this box set when it was all done was an adrenaline surge. I have got to hand it to my past band mates, they played great for how turbulent times
