Megadeth - Rust In Peace - 1990
Then, during my Senior year, I see this album, and it's glorious Repka cover. I had learned more about Megadeth and their relationship with Metallica, by then. I had decided that Metallica was trendy, which they turned out to be, and that Megadeth were the underdogs. So, I bought this.
Of all the Megadeth albums, this is my favorite. I find it... entertaining.
I had a tough time deciding whether or not to use the original Repka cover, or one of the Repkas from the singles, as the guy is a brilliant artist. You should check out the covers to the other Metal.Thrash albums that he's done. There are some really genius ones out there.
Unfortunately, Megadeth didn't have much at all in bonus material for this album. I plugged in the Alice Cooper cover for the Shocker movie and some demos. That's all they had. I wish there were more...
I would guess that this is probably my first Heavy Metal album for Heavy Metal week, three days in. What a case of false advertising....
