29th May 2019 0 By John Deaux

Thrash metal pioneers MEGADETH burst onto the scene in 1983, virtually inventing a genre and have earned their spot as one of metal’s most influential and respected acts of all time. Over the course of their illustrious 36-year career, the band has sold more than 38 million albums worldwide, notched 6 consecutive platinum efforts, 7 top-ten albums, and has earned numerous accolades including 12 GRAMMY® nominations and a 2017 GRAMMY® Award in the “Best Metal Performance” category for the title track “Dystopia”.
 
With sheer determination and a relentless recording and touring schedule, MEGADETH has worked their way up from headlining clubs to headlining arenas, festival and stadiums, cementing a legacy that continues to grow and spread throughout the world.
