I have to admit that Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Anthrax, Sepultura, Slayer, Metallica, Sabbath, Zep, and Rush used to be my staples.

Mustaine is actually a Christian now, I reckon.

wikipedia Wrote:"Mustaine began to focus on religion more directly while attending Alcoholics Anonymous meetings. Finding that the meetings were actually impeding his progress in sobriety and spirituality, Mustaine left to focus on Christianity on his own. Through this process he became a committed Christian. In line with this it has become his policy not to appear with any band that is seen as black metal or satanic, such as his declining to appear in a music festival in Greece with the band Rotting Christ, and an appearance in Israel with the band Dissection. In these instances Mustaine requested that the bands not be kicked off the bill, but that Megadeth would step-down and perform some other night, but to his chagrin the promoters kicked the smaller bands rather than deal with rescheduling the headliner."

The minus is that he is a "reborn Christian".

The plus is that he has a Prot spiritual adviser go with him on tour so he doesn't OD and get into the bad stuff, and keeps his eye on Christ in at least some form.  The other plus is there is a lot of pro-Christian imagery in his music now.

Any particular recommendations along these lines? I'm not familiar with Megadeth after Countdown to Extinction.

The System Has Failed and later.

SHF has Shadow of Deth which is a cool version of the psalm Auxilium meum a Domino



Auxilium meum a domino

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want
He maketh me to lie down in green pastures
He leadeth me beside the still waters
He restoreth my soul

He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his names sake
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death
I will fear no evil: for thou art with me
Thy rod and thy staff they comfort me

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies
Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life
And I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever

Truth be Told from the same album



This is the first tale of death in the world
When Cain struck down Abel, a family broken
Since then mankind's dominated his own kind
To insult and injure, there's no such thing as peace
Till dead do us part, till the last

Truth be told - sin lies at the doorway
Truth be told - hells open for business now
Truth be told - the soil cries out for revenge
Truth be told - and death is upon the ground
All around

The battle ain't over without spoils of war
Just cause it is written doesn't make it so
When you dance with the devil wait till the songs over
I ask myself, "How bad do I want you to live?"
My anger is near, till the last

Truth be told - sin lies at the doorway
Truth be told - hells open for business now
Truth be told - the soil cries out for revenge
Truth be told - and death is upon the ground
All around

[Solo - Mustaine]
[Solo - Mustaine]

Tribulation strikes and we're hit hard
Still you just go on your way
Head in the sand, ignoring the rain
Just like the flood in Noah's day
In his day

[Solo - Mustaine]

Can't punish those for ruining the earth
It's suicide to some degree
Because we are all guilty, guilty as sin
There will be no peace, never for you and me

[Solo - Mustaine]

Before al qaeda and bin ladin
Long before Hitler and Hussein
Ever since the first murder was committed
The verdicts always been the same
Been the same, wrong!

[Solo - Mustaine]

The cursed future just repeats the past
There's hell to pay and stones to cast
So, there will be no peace, never peace
Till the last truth be told by you and me

[Solo - Mustaine]
