Megadeth with Special Guest Biohazard
Caesars Windsor welcomes thrash metal band Megadeth, along with special guest Biohazard, to The Colosseum stage on Thursday, September 21 at 8pm.
From the beginning, Megadeth has proved to be an audacious unit on the heavy music scene. They have been pushing thrash to the limits of music ferocity and instrumental virtuosity since their debut in 1985 with Killing Is My Business…And Business Is Good!
After his departure from Metallica, having co-written many songs that would appear on their first two albums, the ultra-hungry Mustaine conceived a new band, Megadeth, which would harness the cinematic song craft of the new wave of British heavy metal to radically faster tempos, heightened technical agility, complex arrangements, and punk’s primeval aggression.
Over 30 years later, Megadeth reinvented themselves with the release of their 15th studio album, 2016’s Dystopia, featuring the GRAMMY award-winning title track. In 2022, the band released The Sick, The Dying…And The Dead! which debuted at Number Three on the Billboard 200 album chart. The album melds the ultra-frenetic riffing, fiercely intricate guitar solos, and adventurous spirit of the quartet’s groundbreaking early output with the musicality and melodicism of its ‘90s songwriting, all laced with precision along with Mustaine’s singular vocal snarl and wry, lyrical vitriol.
Their greatest hits include titles like “Symphony of Destruction,” “Holy Wars…The Punishment Due,” “In My Darkest Hour,” and “Sweating Bullets.”
For their career, Megadeth has sold tens of millions of albums, notched consecutive platinum efforts, including 1992’s Countdown to Extinction, and garnered 13 GRAMMY nominations. On stage, they continue to be a world-dominating metal force, shaking stadiums and playing shows to massive crowds in every corner of the globe.
