MEGADETH's new video for "Kill the King", taken from the group's upcoming "Greatest Hits: Back to the Start" collection, has been posted online. Check it out:
A 17-track CD and deluxe, limited edition CD/DVD set, "Greatest Hits: Back to the Start" will be released June 28, both including a package essay written by the director of "The Decline of Western Civilization" documentary series, Penelope Spheeris.
MEGADETH's "Greatest Hits: Back to the Start" follows Capitol/EMI's 2004 extensive eight-album remastering campaign for the band's catalog and the release of the band's tenth studio album, "The System Has Failed", which debuted at #18 upon its September 2004 release (Sanctuary Records). The "Greatest Hits" tracklist, selected by fans in a poll at the band's official website, www.megadeth.com, packs 17 top hits and favorites on a 78-minute single disc, including "Peace Sells", "Symphony of Destruction", "In My Darkest Hour", "Holy Wars... The Punishment Due" and "Sweating Bullets".
The limited edition CD/DVD package is expanded to add approximately 40 minutes of video content, including a new Mega-Mix music video for "Kill the King", edited from past music videos and behind the scenes footage, seven previously unreleased live performance cuts from the band's 1999 "Risk" tour, and a preview for the forthcoming 2-DVD set, "Arsenal Of Megadeth".
To be released this fall, "Arsenal Of Megadeth" is a new career anthology including videos, live performances, interviews and Dave Mustaine's home movies of the band on the road.
Pre-orders for the two new "Greatest Hits: Back to the Start" packages will be taken at the band's official website: www.megadeth.com, just as MEGADETH's remastered catalog titles were first offered last year.
James MacDonough (bass) and Shawn Drover (drums) will once again join Dave Mustaine on the road.
