MEGADETH ANNOUNCE “KILLING IS MY BUSINESS…AND BUSINESS IS GOOD: THE FINAL KILL” DELUXE RE-ISSUE OF ICONIC DEBUT ALBUM


unnamed (21)MEGADETH have earned their spot as one of metal’s most influential and respected acts over the past 35 years. Over the course of their career, the band have sold 38 million albums, notched six consecutive platinum efforts—including 1992’s two-million-selling “Countdown to Extinction”—and garnered 12 Grammy® nominations and one win for Best Metal Performance on their most recent album, 2016’s “Dystopia”. Onstage they continue to be a world-dominating metal force, shaking stadiums from the U.S. to Bulgaria as a key component of the recent milestone Big 4 concerts, as well as playing their own shows to massive crowds in every corner of the globe.

Hailed as “The Best Thrash Metal Debut Album All Time” (VH1), legendary thrash metal trailblazers MEGADETH will continue to celebrate the band’s 35th Anniversary with a deluxe re-issue of their revolutionary debut album, “Killing Is My Business…and Business Is Good!”

The band has partnered with Century Media and Legacy Recordings for a June 8, 2018release in North America & Europe, and in Japan on June 6, 2018, via Sony Japan.
“Killing Is My Business…and Business Is Good – The Final Kill” has been completely restored to DAVE MUSTAINE’s intended vision. This rare gem includes the full original album, along with 7 live audio tracks from VHS tapes found in MUSTAINE’s own attic!
In addition to the bonus live tracks, the re-issue also features MEGADETH’s 1984 3-track demo and the previously removed cover of “These Boots”, that has been added back to the record with recut vocals true to Lee Hazelwood’s version.
