The initial studio sessions — held at Sarm Studios, outside of London — were filmed by director Michael Sarna (ANTHRAX, OBITUARY) and are available at Megadeth.com to fan-club members. MEGADETH's last CD, "The System Has Failed", has sold around 180,000 copies since its September 2004 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
