Megadeth Detail Album Reissues with BMG

Megadeth have announced expanded reissues of two catalog albums, 2001’s The World Needs a Hero and 2004’s The System Has Failed, via BMG on February 15.

Both albums, which have been out of print on CD for five years, are newly remastered by Ted Jensen (Guns N’ Roses, Mastodon, Machine Head) and include rare live bonus tracks.

The World Needs a Hero features a live version of a bonus track from that album, “Coming Home,” while The System Has Failed offers live takes of “Time” from 1999’s Risk and “Use the Man” from 1997’s Cryptic Writings, as well as “The Conjuring,” from 1986’s Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?
