Megadeth detail career-spanning, 35-track anthology 'Warheads On Foreheads'

Megadeth are celebrating their 35th anniversary this year with an expansive 35-track anthology called ‘Warheads On Foreheads’.

Spanning the thrash metallers’ entire glorious career from their 1985 debut album ‘Killing Is My Business... and Business Is Good!’ through to 2016’s Grammy Award winning ‘Dystopia’, ‘Warheads On Foreheads’ will be released on Friday 22nd March via UMe Recordings.

The anthology collection is available to buy on 3CD, 4LP and digital formats with deluxe bundles to be announced.

Megadeth lynchpin Dave Mustaine comments: “35 years ago I chose the name Megadeth for my band and I see these songs as the most efficient weapons in the band’s arsenal.

“WOF is a U.S. military term for targeting efficiency, it’s all about using the right tool for the job and these tracks were created for maximum destruction (or stopping power, or something else!).”

Alongside unleashing ‘Warheads On Foreheads’, Megadeth are tentatively due to release their 16th studio album this year.

Asked by Guitar World last August if Megadeth are plotting a new album for 2019, Mustaine said: "Absolutely. For sure. A whole new record, I would say the chances are probably 95 percent. And at least one new song, I'd say it's 100 percent. No question."

He tweeted on Christmas Day: "Droogs, I'm pulling back on Social Media as things rev up re: LP 16. Not enough time to do my job(s).

"Progress is good. Music is fast and strong. All four (members of Megadeth are) contributing. Things are good. Get updates via Megadeth.com until we finish LP 16. I'm hurryin'. Really!"

Feature: 23 rock and metal albums to look forward to in 2019
