As we reported yesterday, Megadeth have received a Grammy nomination for Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for their song "Public Enemy No. 1." Megadeth will go up against Dream Theater, Sum 41, Foo Fighters and Mastodon in the category.
Earlier this month, Megadeth performed at the Maquinaria Festival in Santiago, Chile. Pro-quality footage from the performance has been posted online, and you can check out select clips from the band's November 12 show below.
Probably because of their shared release date and the competitive history between the bands, a lot of the negative comments on Lulu stories around here featured some variation on the theme, "I'm just going to buy Megadeth's new album instead."
In true Halloween spirit, Megadeth too the stage last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in full costume, treating fans to renditions of "Public Enemy No. 1" and "Symphony Of Destruction." You can check out video from the performance below.
Guitar World made history in Milan, Italy, on July 6, 2011, by getting Metallica’s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Slayer’s Kerry King and Anthrax’s Scott Ian to pose for group photos — the first photos ever to feature all the guitarists of thrash metal’s momentous Big Four tour.
Yet another song from Megadeth's upcoming thirteenth studio album, TH1RT3EN, is now streaming online, as they band have now premiered the song "Black Swan" via Hot Topic. You can stream the song in full below.
