Thrash metal legend Megadeth annihilates Manila this Sunday

Megadeth Live in ManilaIf you want to avoid a nuclear explosion, stay away from the World Trade Center in Pasay City on Sunday, July 29.

But why would you? Why would you miss the Voldemort of thrash metal, the Sauron of symphonic destruction in a show that took decades to make it to Manila?

Yes, boys and girls, thrash metal legend Megadeth is set to unleash a nearly two-hour wall of chugging guitar riffs, anthemic choruses, hyperspeed drumming and two decades-worth of heavy metal classics for the heavy metal Filipino faithful.

Pioneers of thrash metal

Formed in 1983 in Los Angeles, California by guitarist/chief songwriter Dave Mustaine, Megadeth is considered one of the pioneering bands of the American thrash metal, the outcome of the mashup of British heavy metal and hardcore punk.

Together with other bands like Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax, Megadeth created and popularized the genre and went on to influence countless other bands in its wake.

With technical virtuosity and aggression, Megadeth is said to be the most proficient of ‘em all—writing songs characterized oftentimes by fast-paced rhythms, dizzying tempo shifts and distinctively intricate lead guitar playing that blurred the lines between rock, metal and even jazz.

30 million sold worldwide

With over 30 million albums sold worldwide, 13 studio albums, nearly 30 hit singles, 32 music videos and 10 Grammy Award nominations under its belt, Megadeth promises a Manila show that’ll blow the roof off the concert venue.

Tickets are available at at SM Tickets for 4,710 pesos and 2,930 pesos. To get a discount of 1000 pesos, present 10 Colt45 crowns at SM Tickets in SM North EDSA, SM Megamall and SM Mall of Asia.
