Optimus says that "we can't let [Megatron] and the Decepticons regroup"... but it should be obvious from the screen that they already. Plus during that critical moment of the audience beginning to look at their watches, Psychotron and Captive Honour just don't deliver. The bass is also uninspiring although the tone suits the music. With 1992’s “Countdown to Extinction” Megadeth follows the lead of Metallica, and their 1991 self titled album, by trading in their lengthy, progressive compositions for streamlined, tightly written and played songs more conducive to radio and MTV airplay. One fo the stronger tracks and a perfect opener. It's a cheesy tune to begin with and that little bluegrass/banjo interlude just sets me laughing. Every other track became a live staple for a reason, so it's not hard to pick any that don't definitively stand out; "Symphony of Destruction", "Sweating Bullets", "Ashes in Your Mouth", even the seemingly lesser-tier likes of "Captive Honor" and "Foreclosure of a Dream" given unto listeners the world over as much substance as they can/would allow. I love George Lynch's playing, but he's not metal at all. About “Countdown to Extinction” Countdown to Extinction is the fifth studio album by American thrash metal band Megadeth, released on July 14, 1992, through Capitol Records. The lyrical structure, lyrical execution, vocal effects, and the lyrics themselves. All but only a few tracks are still heavy and have that driving kick to them. According to the album's linear notes, Megadeth's main man, Dave Mustaine, was very upset that the album didn't hit the coveted #1 spot in the charts. Why do I hate "one of the greatest Megadeth songs of all time" you may ask? But it's not exactly blind hero worship; I've been awfully critical of the 'deth plenty of times, then and now, and if need be I can and will wag a finger or two at them for any questionable decisions they would undertake. There is a lot of lyrical diversity here. We'll make them regret undooming themselves. Bumblebee: Hey Prime, what do you think Megatron's gonna do to Starscream?" The Transformers ep 14 Maybe the biggest difference from the previous album, “Rust in Peace” is that Marty Friedman no longer shreds at will. Because yes, this album does have more rock elements and less metal than the other Megadeth releases. I’m not saying anything bad about these bands changing and new bands emerging, but thrash had all but died. We never do learn how he gets free. Megadeth – Countdown To Extinction Label: Capitol Records – 0777 7 98531-4 4, Capitol Records – 798 531-4 TCESTU 2175 As the Dinobots push the building back into place, Grimlock has his old head design, and Sludge has that strange yellow mouth interior again. During the fight, Megatron receives a communication from Shockwave on Cybertron. And Justice For All on the other hand, despite being Metallica's strongest commercial outing to date, received plenty of criticism from the metal community: The songs are too long; where's the bass; the production is awful; its Ride The Lightning again but even longer; etc. Ultra Magnus turns gray as he deactivates, much like Prime turned gray during his death in The Transformers: The Movie. 'Architecture of Aggression' contains some of the more overtly political lyrics, with this choice nugget: The superb musicianship is still here with Menza, Friedman, Mustaine, and Ellefson. Directed by James Yukich. The solos are still shreddinly good, as well as the bass and everything else for that matter. is catchy as hell. High Speed Dirt is another one of CTE's more kick ass songs. Mustaine must have been trying to achieve the monstrous success of the Black Album, something that doesn’t seem to make much sense considering his hateful stance towards Metallica. I loved the first book and this one is just as good. The production job in this album is one of the shittiest ever heard in a Megadeth release. Mustaine, Ellefson and his new members Marty Friedman and Nick Menza had put out a very, very strong contender for the greatest metal album of all time. I think most of his fills were pretty stock in the 70's, let alone early 90's. To start off, Menza begins with a short drum fill and Dave opens up with the riff to Skin O' My Teeth. Captive Honour has a very catchy riff and fine lines. Directed by John Walker. Much of the material here doesn't pan out so well, mostly due to not having interesting instrumentation or vocals - these tracks aren't bad or even that boring, just very plain and bland. There is thrash here and there especially on the tracks Ashes in Your Mouth, Architecture of Aggression and Skin O' My Teeth but overall the album relies a lot on emotional and catchy pure heavy metal. Even though, it's not the best the band has to offer, it's still a very good album worthy of your time. Like you! Unfortunately for Mustaine, there was a commercial ethos that he either never had the dishonesty to pursue, or never really figured out. The solos are catchy. Dave’s vocals are very emotional here, the guitar riffing is awesome, extremely catchy chorus and that solo section in the near end is just totally rules. Of course Megadeth will always be compared to Metallica, and much like the latter’s notorious self-titled album, which conspicuously came out just the year before, Countdown to Extinction can hardly be called proper thrash metal any more. What is in fact fairly interesting about Countdown to Extinction is that despite looking like a commercial album (simpler cover, more consistent song lengths, generally verse-chorus song structures) it has a lot of detail and skill added to it that takes it whole levels above mere commercialism. Releasing classics like ‘Rust In Peace,’ ‘Peace Sells… But Who’s Buying?,’ ‘So Far, So Good… So What?,’ ‘Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!’ and… yes, ‘Countdown To Extinction.’ Unfortunately, this album would only sell around 2 million copies in the U.S., which is significantly less than Metallica did. Countdown to Extinction / Intro: A5 F5 G5 G#5 F5 E5 C5 A5 A5... (let it fade for 8 bars) / Verse 1 Am F Endangered species, caged in fright, D G E Shot in cold blood, no chance to fight, Am And yes, compared to the Black Album, ‘Countdown To Extinction’ is better by far. But let me not describe this record as a slow album by far. Killer song! For those who have listened to this album, I am of course talking about This Was My Life, Foreclosure of a Dream, Countdown to Extinction and Captive Honour (although to be fair, Captive Honour has a catchy chorus, I’ll give it that). Instead of making it sound warm and inviting like the four albums before this one (we're talking thrash here, not black metal), or crunchy and powerful like the next two, this album sounds completely mechanical and artificial. The atmosphere of the guitar can be described as “doomier” than previous four albums. The choruses are catchy. It just goes to show that political messages, liberal or conservative, should never be more important than the music being played. It really did seem like a new beginning for the band, the best possible example of maintaining your original sense of relevance while being able to snag in new, different listeners in the process. Wheeljack's ears flash for a single frame even though he's not speaking, and they're orange; he's missing his missile launcher. They didn’t loose any musical credibility, or change drastically to achieve success. Songs such as Captive Honour, Countdown to Extinction, and This Was My Life, displayed this more melodic approach to metal, particularly the title track, with its fantastic bridges and interludes. Bush just because his parents do. Then there's the chorus "sweatinnnng bulleeeeets!" So why this gets hit for that, I don't know. This squabbling is short-lived, however, as Megatron returns, having survived the explosion of his starship. Despite the cries of "sellout" from some metal purists, "Countdown to Extinction" is a … This raging thrasher just might be the greatest song of Megadeth's career for the simple reason that if you were to put it on any other Megadeth album, especially the classics, it would be considered the best song on the respective record, the only question being by how many sonic miles (mileage would of course vary by the record). “Captive Honour” has a cool, bluesy chorus to it, and some cool riffing, but the opening talking narrative is just so strange and awkwardly embarrassing that it ruins any value the song may have had. Such is the case with Megadeth's "Countdown to Extinction" which, for better or worse, is MegaDave's most commercially successful album. He then reaches Cybertron in about 4 hours. This means that when a song fails, your attention turns to what goes into the song itself. Countdown to Extinction NOTE: There is a known issue with the most recent entries having screwed-up information and links. The album was nominated for Best Metal Performance at the 1993 Grammy Awards. Again: Make no mistake, this definitely works, and if this album had ended one track earlier it would’ve been a big miss. Just listen to how ridiculous, simplified, and novelty “Sweating Bullets” is; a song that while happening to be one of the band's most beloved works, is just a unintentionally comedic shell of their former selves. The solo at 2:30 is one of persona favorites along with the fact that someone's manpussy was sold. Things do pick up towards the finish as "Psychotron" rips a serrated riff and a monstrous headbanging groove with sharp leads and a perfectly goofy Deathlok theme. View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the 2012 Cardboard Slipcase CD release of Countdown To Extinction (20th Anniversary Edition) on Discogs. Peter Cullen's voice for Optimus Prime is given an unusual amount of robotic modulation in this episode. With Chris Broderick, Shawn Drover, Dave Ellefson, Dave Mustaine. One thing to understand is that although these differences are a bit subtle, they are noteworthy and are what contrast this album from MegaDeth's earlier works. The soloing is still very good, as good as could be found at the time. But all that is really beside the point: music is our business and the music is mostly okay. Nov 5, 2020 - Explore Rickky Chan's board "Countdown to Extinction" on Pinterest. With Countdown to Extinction they replaced the speed of PSBWIB and RIP for catchier songs with memorable melodies and radio friendly. Yeah right. Nothing to rival Five Magics but they are well-crafted nonetheless Megadeth trades in its lengthy, progressive compositions for streamlined, tightly written and played songs more conducive to radio and MTV airplay. Meanwhile, those that prefer the new, neo-classical shred style, would however, find satisfaction in the harmonized, dueling guitars of Dave and Marty in the song's latter half. Then there's the vocals too, which are rather odd when one considers them in context: Mustaine doesn't have an especially skilled voice as a singer, can't wail like a power metal vocalist, can't sing anthems like a stadium giant, can't even do James Hetfield's rough roar, yet he acts his way through most of the songs, using a range of styles from sombre disapproval on 'Countdown to Extinction' to tough phlegmy growls on 'Symphony of Destruction' to snarling insanity on 'Sweating Bullets', plus some more melodic moments. Again a ultra catchy melody, double bass (really soft and not fast at all). It's not a voice that is easy to get used to though once that happens he's not so bothersome. Your sole focus of this mission will be to survive attacks from the witch and her minions on your base while the horde finishes fixing the boats damaged by the storm. "Well me, it's been nice talking to myself"… The band would explore this technique again in a later song titled, Dread and the Fugitive Mind. There are flashes of awesome lead guitar here and there, but the melodies aren't quite as integrated with the riffs as they were on previous albums. You had your turn on the merry-go-round. Despite the cries of "sellout" from some metal purists, "Countdown to Extinction" is a … Extinction Countdown is the second book in the Extinction series! There are a few excellent songs on here, but there's also some less than ideal songs. But what's this? The slower riffs, tight drum fills, and carefully structured instrumentation really add to this feel. Every other album cover had Vic Rattlehead doing something cool. This works out pretty well for the boys, the technicality is missed but the melody works just fine. It does a fairly good job of making a more marketable sound and still having it sound like a Megadeth album and for the most part is a good album. Though the band opted for a lighter album (and it isn't exactly light to begin with) traces of the bands former thrash metal sound can still be found on songs such as Architecture of Aggression or Ashes in Your Mouth. It may seem selfish to blame the album for my forgetfulness, but keep in mind that I’ve listened to this album more times than I care to count and I’ve owned it for at least a year now. I'd give it ten percent for every dollar I paid for it. This is probably the third best Megadeth ever did, so it is worth a listen. One side of his face a kiss, the other genocide It alone makes this more than worthy of any Megadeth fan's collection and would not be out of place on Rust in Peace. At least, to me, it showed not even Megadeth were safe from the commercial, everyone-copy-whatever-Metallica-or-Nirvana-does-or-you-won't-be-a-success fad in the 90s that plagued and claimed so many other thash bands in its wake (thank god we have death metal and black metal). Meanwhile, the spoken verses of “Sweating Bullets” are annoying beyond belief. Friedman is still very technical and catchy with his soloing. And I'm Mary Queen of Scots. Metallica, once the biggest thrash metal band in the world, softened up their sound to a more accessible, mainstream style of metal. The reissue also has a pretty good bonus song called 'Crown of Worms' done with Diamond Head that's worth a listen. No! Countdown to Extinction is the chapter five (5) of the demo campaign and the chapter three (3) of the custom campaign, Exodus of the Horde. This definitive lineup was at the top of its game during the recording of the album; David Ellefson's bass is, as always top notch, and shares the limelight in the intro to the title track. No, this isn't the Black Album and I'm sure many a metalhead like it far more however in the terms of competing with Metallica for popularity was a wasted effort (Black Album sold 16 million copies in the U.S. alone by the end of the 90s, pretty hard to beat) and ultimately while this album turned out just fine it foreshadows Dave's willingness to do whatever it takes to get the record sales and this foreshadows another release I'll most likely be covering before christmas, I'm sure Megadeth fans know what controversial piece I'm speaking of. The songwriting is far superior and the songs aren’t as boring or simplistic. These songs are still heavy enough, mind you, but they almost certainly aren’t thrash. Mixed success, the solo's once again didnt feel as amazing as older material. Even the low-profile Dave Ellefson composed his own parts for the bass. The mixture of complexity and pounding did a lot for the performance and it simply doesn't sound right now. Have a ton of fun! So really, just because this is a step softer than works that proceed it, saying that it's generic or poorly written shows an obvious lack of musical understanding, theory, and what goes into song writing. Megadeth dropped much of the thrash out of their sound as well, beginning with this album, incorporating a more melodic heavy metal sound with slight traces of thrash still scattered about. At the time this album was released, this was definitely Mustaine’s best vocal performance. As the Autobots drive past cam, Ironhide and Ratchet's passenger side windows are HUGE. This one never gets old no matter how many times I play it. 2011 — The Transformers — The Complete Original Series (Shout! The best song on here: Ashes in Your Mouth. And at the risk of somehow ducking the real reasons behind my personal angst, I can't exactly say what it is about it that really digs at me. This album and all of the albums following it are seen to be a black mark in Megadeth's career by many people. If you don’t have it, I suggest you obtain it and enjoy 45 minutes of well played heavy metal. As Megatron orders his troops to move out, Soundwave's hand is white, then changes to blue. Another fantastic track is Foreclosure of A Dream. The rest of the album follows a more mid-paced heavy metal sound. I think some other quality playing can be found in This Was My Life, Foreclosure of a Dream, and Sweating Bullets. The traces of thrash metal are still on this album but essentially heavy metal is a more accurate description. Sweating Bullets has some nice riffs and lunatic lyrics which Dave also shows well in his vocals. He was market savvy and schemed accordingly. The only track of which I don't like his vocals on is Sweating Bullets. it goes on for too long. Of course, such a view would surely piss off fans of the old albums (especially, those crybabies who hold records like "Peace Sells..." or "Rust in Peace" in such high esteem) but really, who cares right? There's a Van Halen track from the Women And Children First album that speaks of the dangers of this. Even Gothenburg Metallers, In Flames, have experimented with new sounds. This basically describes the album’s overall sound quite well. 2009 — The Transformers — The Complete First Season: 25th Anniversary Edition (Shout! This is perhaps the only true thrash song on the album. This album is "mainstream". Each individual can sort out which songs they like the most, and then they can rip those songs. Oh man i remember the good old days back in high school where i used to crack this in my car stereo ah those were the days. It does have many pluses as well. See more ideas about save earth, save our earth, extinction. ‘Sweating Bullets’ is another important song on here, as it is probably the catchiest song Megadeth has ever written. The riffs are great. Whether Countdown to Extinction turned out better than Metallica’s black album, or in fact the other way around, is the topic of another discussion. Everything about this album is a disappointment for me. Especially on the releases, the sound is crystal-clear and perfect. Captive Honour follows and let me tell you – even if it has those judge and gangster voices it’s a total classic! In the vein of Laaz Rockit's "Know Your Enemy", this is one of those albums that can be memorised after three or four listens. Following the course with Metallica’s Black Album, Speed Metal in America went Heavy Metal and commercial at all levels. A little too similar. I know production isn't easy or cheap, but Rust In Peace had a lower budget and managed to sound great. Besides, such a logical fallacy is very childish and juvenile. Countdown to Extinction by Megadeth song meaning, lyric interpretation, video and chart position As well, Nick Menza's (R.I.P.) NOT COOL. Prime's strange half-sloped windscreen design appears in the next shot, an error found in several other episodes including ". He is following a procedure of cleansing and with the help of his teammates he creates another heavy metal masterpiece. -Marcin C. I want to get this out of the way first: Countdown to Extinction is a letdown. Aggression is legitimately interesting from a certain angle. Follow-up Youthanasia is actually a better all-around record than this, though the highs here are so much higher. I want Skywarp's job." They sometimes sound a little off, such as with “Sweating Bullets” to an extent, but they generally sound good. Better sound than the German pressing. Something triggered the death of millions of people since the last book. What bass guitar?). Regardless of a change of pace Countdown is an awesome album. As for Marty Friedman, he isn't doing nearly as much as he was on Rust in Peace, though there are few albums where anyone does that much in terms of skillful leadwork, so maybe it's not such a surprise. Riffs tend to consist of pre-metalcore chugging and some stop-start patterns, interspersed with some improperly used and weak-sounding acoustic guitars. Really, this could be said about anything Megadeth had put out in the 1990s, which was all superior to 90s Metallica in every way. The solos are top notch (name a more iconic duo than Dave and Marty)- but still, the songs seem too dragged, forced, and not very motivated. "High Speed Dirt"? The songs are primarily straightforward four-minute rockers, sporting an emphasis on catchy guitar hooks, vocal lines and choruses. There was also a promo box set issued that included the album on CD and cassette. I'm partial to Aggression, My Life, and Psychotron, but there's some other songs of close or similar quality. The song that borrows the most from the band’s previous thrash sound would have to be the closer “Crown of Worms”. By releasing the ridiculously good Rust in Peace in 1990, Megadeth had achieved the pinnacle of songwriting that the thrash subgenre allowed for. After an extremely brief symphonic intro, a heavy riff explodes out of nowhere. We all know the story: the alternative/grunge wave swept metal back into the underground and everything that was supposed to be rebellious and cool in the eighties was suddenly considered outdated, clichéd and lame. Originally written for themetalvoid.wordpress.com. As displayed on earlier songs like Peace Sells, Mustaine employs what I refer to as the "Call And Answer" lyric technique, where one line asks a question or makes a statement, and the next line answers it, if you will.
