24K Gold CD Mastered from the Original Master Tapes Plus Four Bonus Tracks
MoFi Version Mixed by Megadeth Leader Dave Mustaine
Megadeth’s Countdown to Extinction is one of the most brilliant and precise metal records ever released. The 1992 set features obsessive band leader and virtuosic guitarist Dave Mustaine exploring personal demons, social problems, and world issues with a rapier wit and savage frankness that earned the legendary band critical accolades, mainstream exposure, and commercial success.
Countdown to Extinction merges the best of all worlds—prescient intelligence, outspoken lyrics, crushing energy, memorable riffs, and giant hooks. This is music that’s at once rugged, contagious, and gorgeous. And, to a man, note-perfect. Couple the recording process with Mobile Fidelity’s remaster from the original master tapes, and what you have a record that sounds as good as any hard-rock album on the planet.
