This isn’t a very complex song, save for the solo, which every song seems to do a good job of providing, but damn that riff is crushing! Thundercracker appears to be the one commanding the remaining Decepticons before Megatron returns; while not an outright error, it's a bit odd as based on what's understood about the Decepticon hierarchy, it seems like Soundwave is the highest-ranking one present. It's delivered with the usual dark lyrics and violent imagery, but overall is still very new for the band and I'll still take it any day over the far right wing drivel that permeates United Abominations or Endgame. Pure hilarity and monster riffs/solos make this one for me. Architecture of Aggression is one of my favorite tracks on the CTE. Many fans consider this the album when Megadeth finally sold out. This Was My Life is a self-sarcastic song by Mustaine. I don't want to come off as someone who just hates songs because they're popular. View credits, reviews, tracks and shop for the 2012 Cardboard Slipcase CD release of Countdown To Extinction (20th Anniversary Edition) on Discogs. Its fairly simplistic, and while the verses are easy to memorize, they're nothing too profound. This also has some of my favourite lyrics by the band. Again: Make no mistake, this definitely works, and if this album had ended one track earlier it would’ve been a big miss. An even more rare instance of Mirage firing his. There are also now guitar hooks added into the choruses. A bold move as it helps him share more of his worldly views and might get Megadeth into circles where they weren't present before and adding a layer that people can more easily relate to. This is it, this is the Countdown to Extinction. Not to mention the album contains one of the most overrated “thrash metal” songs ever, up there with “One” by the neutered Metallica. 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. It has less sibilance even on the inner tracks. So why did this album get a 40% and not a 90%, per se? 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.’ Your aim's improving, Megatron! Watch the video for Countdown to Extinction from Megadeth's Countdown To Extinction for free, and see the artwork, lyrics and similar artists. The lyrics are referring to the U.S. political system and how it helps the poor get even poorer! Anyways, Architecture is the song on this album I find gets stuck in my head the most. The rest of the songs are fairly unremarkable but there's nothing truly atrocious. Watch the video for Countdown to Extinction from Megadeth's Countdown To Extinction for free, and see the artwork, lyrics and similar artists. 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. How DID Teletraan I get that image of the Decepticons flying along? We'll make them regret undooming themselves. They like to think they're being deep and edgy without wanting to go the extra mile of alienating the alpha males at the bar. Or better still, "Sweating Bullets," another huge track that was everywhere. Killer song! Menza’s skillful drumming gives the appropriate push to the songs and Ellefson offers the best with his steady, firm bass lines. The solos retained their style and tempo while the lyrics still spelled out to us listeners an impending doom. Starting with the lyrics and Mustaine's vocals, one would not expect this to be a release that charted at No.2 with such themes as contained in 'Sweating Bullets', 'Captive Honour', or the nerdy 'Psychotron'. It is a mature song and well-composed but it sounds like it was meant to hit the radio charts. Unfortunately, this album did not sell nearly as well and did not quite get the recognition it deserved. Of course, all of Megadeth’s albums are known for their amazing production. I'm partial to Aggression, My Life, and Psychotron, but there's some other songs of close or similar quality. Originally written for With this new decade, metal as a whole seemed to be changing. Why do I hate "one of the greatest Megadeth songs of all time" you may ask? Not only was Dave and Co. able to channel the essence of heavy metal and power metal but they were able to exude the sounds with an unmistakably dark vibe. This reason, along with the still-present yet commercialized guitar technicality and precision, is the reason “Countdown to Extinction” is a FAR superior heavy metal album than “Metallica” was. It tries to be bombastic or dynamic but in the end is too held back for its own good. With Countdown to Extinction they replaced the speed of PSBWIB and RIP for catchier songs with memorable melodies and radio friendly. Take away the hyper-aggressive nature of Rust, but keep the song writing at an all time high, and you've got this Megadeth masterpiece. So, what are some of the bad elements? There are a few songs that don't seem to quite hit it off due to a lack of momentum or slightly plodding verses, such as 'Architecture of Aggression' and 'Foreclosure of a Dream', while 'This Is My Life' is the only time that I suspect I'm listening to Hetfield and co., suggested by the stomping riff and Mustaine's unfortunately stolen "Hey" before the chorus. As Megatron asks about Arkeville, Skywarp's chest intakes are colored black. Do listen. I’ve listened to this album time and time again and I don’t have to have the album playing every time I want to evaluate it, yet I had to use fucking Wikipedia just to remember these tracks, that’s how forgettable they are. A solo after the second, extended chorus? “High Speed Dirt” recycles some elements from “Skin O'My Teeth”, which itself seems like a slightly catchier rehash of the thrashier “Liar”, released two albums earlier. The playing itself is pretty good. Unfortunately, for me, this song falls a little short. But don’t cry out “sellout” as this still maintains its artistic credibility. It’s pretty much just a song about robots. Starscream plans to blow up the labs ultimate power source in order to destroy Earth and claim the universes ultimate power for himself. Despite this sharp turn in style and simplification of sound, however, the album's attitude still screams "Megadeth!". Unlike their peers in Metallica and Anthrax, they didn't completely abandon their roots with this record, choosing instead to graft solid metal structures onto a more hybridized arena rock format, stipulating a post-thrash sound not entirely mired in posturing grooves, alternative navel-gazing or strutting cock-rock cliche. I'd hafta say this is my favourite Megadeth album of the three. Besides, such a logical fallacy is very childish and juvenile. Megadeth’s fifth full-length effort starts off well. The album is simplified, catchy, melodic and most importantly emotional. Foreclosure Of A Dream is a decent ballad although Megadeth's definitive example of this style would occur on their next album. Lyrics to 'Countdown To Extinction' by Megadeth. “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. This means that when a song fails, your attention turns to what goes into the song itself. I think some other quality playing can be found in This Was My Life, Foreclosure of a Dream, and Sweating Bullets. The songs are all pretty similar, with very little distinguishing between them. One of the better intro riffs and arguably best guitar solo on this album! Also, High Speed Dirt, despite being decidedly catchy and upbeat, is about the quite dull and un-metal subject of skydiving. I like to consider this album as Megadeth’s And Justice for All….It is by far a superb album. This really is a shame as its performance simply isn't as good now. I decided I would give it a try in mono on my boombox, and sure enough it wasn't the headphones. Upon the opening of Skin o' My Teeth, I was under the impression that Megadeth were possibly staying with their thrash roots but eventually figured this is far from the case. Make no mistake, though, there is plenty of heaviness here. During the fight, Megatron receives a communication from Shockwave on Cybertron. With Corey Burton, Christopher Collins, Scatman Crothers, Peter Cullen. Gone are the unnecessary frills or the self-indulgent wanking that plagued Rust in Peace. During the battle, the Darkspear trolls and the Horde managed to escape the Sea Witch and her murlocs. The guy can play the shit out of a guitar, but apparently Megadeth "wasn't aggressive enough for him." Nick Menza is not as great as RIP but defiantly solid except for his annoying high cymbal which can get annoying. This is perhaps the only true thrash song on the album. As a result, the band has sacrificed most of the complexity that had accompanied Rust in Peace in favor of a more streamlined and polished sound. Folks will attack Metallica's self-titled 'till the end of days, but will inexplicably defend this tooth-and-nail. . Countdown To Extinction needs to be addressed and talked about from a different angle, because based off of a lot of what other thrash goers seem to bare in mind, there's a huge lack of musical understanding. The song starts off with a simple, yet eerie guitar riff, which is followed by a long spoken section in which Dave talks to himself. 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. There is a lot of lyrical diversity here. For some, this song is played out and that's understandable. release of this episode are noticeably reduced from the original; the beeping of the timer after the first commercial break, for example, is barely audible. While nothing else on here can come close to the greatness of that song, Skin O' My Teeth and High Speed Dirt are both faster paced songs with great riffs. Of course, he was twisted and evil to start with, so. The opener, Skin O' My Teeth, has a great Judas Priest-inspired feel. Ashes In Your Mouth is easily the highlight. You could pretty much hear everything on the last two as well, without this cold feeling. Probably not the initial intent, but that's what comes to my mind. After a short battle the Autobots are trapped in quicksand. It's a different yet still fantastic album. That said, the catchiness of some of the riffs is welcome, the best examples being on the rollicking opener, 'High Speed Dirt', and the bridge of 'Sweating Bullets', which are mostly the quicker numbers. 2009 — Transformers — Season One (Metrodome) 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. And it was with that in mind that, when looking back at their 1992 breakthrough wrecking ball, I found not only their biggest album to date but, in my humble opinion, their most deplorable... 2002 — The Original Transformers — Volume Three (Rhino Entertainment) Move over for death metal and grunge. Unfortunately, like many thrash bands in the 90's, Megadeth never really managed to escape the pit of metal inferiority, progressively getting worse and worse each album, only barely scrapping out a decent song or two per album. It’s another half-speed track but very heavy indeed. He is being in peace with himself and has finally realized who he is and what he can offer. But was it a failure? Nov 5, 2020 - Explore Rickky Chan's board "Countdown to Extinction" on Pinterest. song) Countdown To Extinction, and High Speed Dirt are all great songs, and while the ninth and tenth tracks Psychotron (stupidest Mustaine lyrics I've ever heard) and Captive Honour (a failed experiment using voices of a judge, or something) are pretty lame, it ends on a high note with the thrasher 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 is the first Megadeth album not featuring Vic Rattlehead, their mascot, on the cover. The traces of thrash metal are still on this album but essentially heavy metal is a more accurate description. And the songs themselves? The music speaks for itself. Youthanasia could be rightly compared to the Black Album, but this album still has traces of thrash, or at least thrash influences throughout. People who look down on CTE are pointing out very trivial things such as "it's not fast, it's not thrash". Really folks, you could be the last person on planet Earth stuck in a hangar one hundred miles away from the nearest oasis, and listening to these tracks would still be embarrassing. This is the guy who was playing in 3rd rate glam/hair bands in the mid 80s (save for Cacophony) and although he had chops, he is not metal by any means. It is one of the band’s greatest works but over time you will find yourself forgetting or skipping over certain tracks. When he learns that Starscream and Doctor Arkeville are apparently working together, he sets off in pursuit with the other Decepticons. Original sound version now out of print. The next two tracks are nothing memorable. God forbid any band lighten up in the slightest without getting attacked by critics who have a metal agenda in mind that must be followed. But on the other hand, and I am quite loathe to say this despite all the positivity I've given it, this was really when the band seemed to lose their original burning spirit. And rivalry-fueled Dave Mustaine, ever-eager to outdo his competitors, decided that the only logical path for his band to take was to also expand their sound into a more accessible format. This album is one of the only Megadeth albums which features some killer, and mostly filler material. That would be my guess. “Ashes in Your Mouth” and “Psychotron” have some catchy grooves and riffs here and there, but are otherwise forgettable, the later having really cringe-y vocals and lyrics about a half human, half cyborg (he says it's not a cyborg, but the lyrics appear to be dealing with a humanoid-robot, which is, indeed, a fucking cyborg, at least partly). Plus, the addressing of real issues at the time are all over the place, mostly political, but the self struggles are there too. 1998 — The Transformers — Autobot Edition (Pioneer LDC) — Japanese audio only. "Boy your soul better belong to Jesus.....MMHHHMMMMM....cause your ass belongs to me HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA" Snaking, weaving riffs followed by some EPIC solos by Dave and Marty round this one out. Seeking to gain power for himself, Starscream links the generator to a timer and then takes Doctor Arkeville with him to Cybertron, which is still nearby. The remnants of MegaDeth's 80s material are highly obvious, "Skin of my teeth" is super fast, and showcases Nick Menza doing a rather brilliant drum intro. The middle of the album, however, is what makes it worth buying. Once t… Let’s hope the upcoming album at least manages to be better than the era beginning with Countdown to Extinction. It essentially makes the whole album sound processed, like this was crafted in a boardroom meeting or something. As proof of his leadership, Starscream shows a badge with the Decepticon. Best Tracks:Skin O' My Teeth, Architecture of Aggression, Foreclosure of a Dream, Sweatign Bullets, Countdown to Extinction, Psychotron, Ashes in Your Mouth, Captive Honour. Dave's voice sounds really great with the melodic style of music found on this album, and are as catchy as they will ever be. Now, unlike that album, which would go on to sell 16 million+ copies in the U.S. alone, “Countdown to Extinction” is a solid heavy metal album from start to finish. One of the principle differences between 80s thrash and Power metal is the level of emphasis on structure. Skywarp: Don't worry. There was also a promo box set issued that included the album on CD and cassette. Most of the lyrics give out bitterness but at times they reflect optimism and hope. Original sound version now out of print. Lyrics to 'Countdown To Extinction' by Megadeth. The guitar has almost completely traded its quick calculated riffs for slower more melodic riffs. (And since nitrogen boils at well below room temperature, this may be the one time in. If there are songs I'd criticise, one would be Foreclosure Of A Dream, which simply doesn't manage to be interesting. WHY DO YOU THINK GEORGE LYNCH TRIED OUT FOR OZZY TWICE AND DIDN'T GET THE GIG? Wheeljack's ears flash for a single frame even though he's not speaking, and they're orange; he's missing his missile launcher. And I don’t like it. Does Megadeth do spoken word now? You can definitely hear their older stuff included in here too. Another slightly odd part of Countdown to Extinction shows up on the tenth song, Captive Honour. Rating: 8.0 out of 10 points. This time, rather than recording a heavy, technical riff-fest like they did on Rust in Peace, Dave and Co. played simpler, more melodic tunes that will appeal more to the average listener. It starts off with a couple good riffs, and suddenly we hear Mustaine talking to himself, starting out yet another great song. "This was my life" is yet another rehash of a classic song that Mustaine originally wrote of Metallica in "Phantom Lord", although a good bit slower. The drumming is not really special. I love George Lynch's playing, but he's not metal at all. God forbid any band lighten up in the slightest without getting attacked by critics who have a metal agenda in mind that must be followed. My single biggest reservation about this album and Megadeth after Rust in Peace is Marty Friedman. Countdown To Extinction did not surpass its predecessor, maybe even not Peace Sells… However, it is a great album and a countdown not to extinction but to the birth of a new life and creation for the band since it marked the end of their speed/thrash days and the turn to more straight metal forms. Again, let me go back to describing one song. For thrash goers, it's still a full on thrash record. Ecological and climate breakdown share many of the same drivers: notably, the destruction of forests and other natural ecosystems by industrial agriculture. Even so, this is prime “Beavis and Butthead” headbanging material and striking proof of Dave Mustaine’s uncanny penchant for writing guitar riffs that are both devastating and insanely memorable. Overall, Countdown's crowning achievement is that it successfully breaks into radio-play territory without sacrificing the integral ingredients that make the music Megadeth and not some other band. I was like "Hey listen to this chorus it sucks ass," and they said "did he just say 'sweating balls'?" Pretty please? The previous threat of Cybertron's orbits over Earth have passed. Many accuse Dave Mustaine of simply copying what Metallica during Megadeth's career. Next is the title track which is slow and has another very catchy chorus and cool lyrics and solos ending up as a total classic. Don't get me wrong- there are a few notable tracks which saved the album from being a total trainwreck. It's truly a stain on the band's catalogue; there's nothing enjoyable about its crappy and tedious stop-start riff, the corny spoken word narration that form the verses or the descending melody that forms its irritating hook. He provides some very good solos (along with one blues breakdown in “High Speed Dirt”), but this isn’t a shred fest anymore. This is possibly the album where Megadeth strays form the thrash roots and move into a more traditional heavy metal approach. 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. The bass is almost inaudible, the guitars seem to lack any power and only the drums are correctly produced and equalized within the mix. 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. Unlike the aggressive thrash riffs of old, this is more of a melodic rocker with an overall traditional heavy metal sound. Think about the simple yet frighteningly effective and memorable riffs from this song. As well, Nick Menza's (R.I.P.) 2002 — The Original Transformers — First Season Collector's Edition (Rhino Entertainment) That's enough history lessons, though. With Countdown to Extinction, Megadeth still produced some excellent metal. The songwriting is far superior and the songs aren’t as boring or simplistic. The sound of the pummeling guitars and drums during the intro section of the song, will surely sate the cravings of those wanting to hear more of the old albums. Such is the case with Megadeth's "Countdown to Extinction" which, for better or worse, is MegaDave's most commercially successful album. Ditto on the remaster for Peace Sells. Countdown to Extinction is the fifth studio album by American thrash metal band Megadeth. Countdown to Extinction is the fifth studio album by American thrash metal band Megadeth, released on July 6, 1992 through Capitol Records. Megadeth certainly was no slouch in the first three categories for a thrash metal band, but the entire Rust In Peace had just lost a Grammy to Metallica for one single track and it was a fucking Queen cover! The two explore a lot of the same sonic territory, this came soon after Metallica and at an analogous point in Megadeth's career, and the two share a lot of the same flaws. On Cybertron, Starscream is baffled that the Earth has not exploded and sets off back to check the timer. For some reason on this song, the tone is much harsher and just adds to the music. 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. The choruses are catchy. The drums are tight. The music is very heavy, somewhat denying the speed chapter but investing on classic, traditional metal. How times change. This is possibly the most negative atmosphere I've ever heard, and most songs are dragged down by it. 2006 — Transformers — The Complete Generation One Collection (Metrodome) It has some of the greatest songs ever written by Deth just like Metallica’s 4th album. More TIE engine as the Decepticons move to land a second later. One of my all-time favourite Megadeth tunes! -Marcin C. I want to get this out of the way first: Countdown to Extinction is a letdown. In Dave’s heyday Megadeth was great, which is why it’s all the more difficult to listen to an album released by them which is so watered down. At that point in time, metal was on the verge of breaking into the mainstream, with Metallica releasing their famed self-titled album in 1991. A sound effect more commonly used for the Road Runner is repurposed as Skywarp and Thundercracker diving to attack the Autobots. There are a few excellent songs on here, but there's also some less than ideal songs. “Skin O’ My Teeth” shows an immediate shift in sound for Megadeth. Seems almost comical in hindsight but there's no getting around how critical Countdown To Extinction is of everything Mustaine has since lovingly embraced, whether its politics, economics, the environment, or faith, old-school Mega-Dave and new-school Christian-Dave couldn't be more different. Check. Behind him, Thundercracker's canopy is still over-oranged, and his wings aren't symmetrical. It explodes quite near Starscream who is flying up to Earth, and the blast sends him crashing... just in front of none-too-pleased Megatron. Ultimately like the album Dave wanted to replicate so badly, this winds up being a perfectly decent if inconsistent foray into commercial waters, and a waste of potential given what had come before it. ", "Hey, I didn't volunteer for this geeky assignment. If I could hazard a guess though, I’d say it’s because after all of the bullshit tracks here, this arrives like a shining beacon of awesomeness and reminds us of all the good tracks on this album as well as ‘Deth classics from the distant past and make us forget about the monotonousness of the others.
