So?am i the only one who is aware of this?

i think this album is absolutely great,heavier than anything they've released since countdown to extinction,that's for sure,and definately more dynamic than their last album.there are some moments that remind me of So far...So good...So what

overall a good album,not too long or too short with some ass kicking riffs and back to back solos...and thrashier,that's great :!:

Bought the album recently and wasn't expecting anything good but i was wrong. After a couple of listens the album turned out to be a great piece of Thrash :P From the badass intro Dialectic Chaos to the great last song The right to go insane the album is kickass. Great production, insane solos, good drumming, a bass that you can hear, heavy riffs and Mustaine's vocals still kicking ass, Endgame is a must have for all Megadeth fans.
Now i hope the new Slayer will be as good !
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by frost.


It is just that heavy metal musicians write in minor keys, and when you do that, you frighten people.

You have not listened very well, have you? There's been a thrash revival going on for years as part of which bot Metallica and Megadeth got a bit more thrashy again.

I did an interview with Dave Mustaine if anyone is interested in hearing it.

I didn't it a week before Megadeth toured Australia this year.

Finally a big old school thrash band that actually released an album as good as their old stuff, A lot of riffs on this are likie off the first album.

Also, Destruction > Kreator, but neither band has released a really good album since the late 80's.

I Hated "Endgame!"

#17 Post by Hansi Smurf » 31 Oct 2009 22:24

Thought "Endgame" by Megadeth was a crappier record than I expected, and wouldn't even give it a second listen. Happily, even though it was unwrapped and listened to thru just one time, local Record Store "HMV" let me exchange it for the much more valuable to me personally, "Dethklok II Deluxe Edition w/ bonus DVD", for a mere two dollars more!

I will still recommend the unremastered "Rust In Peace" and the triumphant "the System Has Failed" to any would-be purchaser of the "Heavy Metal" genre or Megadeth in particular, but would still also insist that "Rokubota" needed more experience listening to Music if the feeble hooks and poor sound-quality of "Endgame" was enuff to qualify Dave Mustaine as a genius song-writer to his ears! A competant lead and rythm guitarist is as far as I'd go with this hasty and dull performance!

If you paid money for Megadeth "Endgame", I'd expect Megadeth to give you your money back, or to give you a copy of "the System Has Failed" or "Rust In Peace" or even "Countdown to Extinction" in exchange!

Brutal!

This is coming from someone who is not into Thrash Metal, at all, and bought this album on a whim because it was 9.99 and people said it was good (this was the same day I bought BtBaM - The Great Misdirect, which is what I was actually there for). So take this with a grain of salt

Truly fantastic instrumentals. The drumming was maybe a bit uninspired, but the guitar work was top notch, and I love metal were you can actually hear the bass.

Vocals OTOH... Dave Mustaine really doesn't sound so good anymore. Sorry.

However I listen to music mainly for the instrumentals, so I definitely don't regret buying it. Not as catchy as Death Magnetic, but a lot more technically impressive.

I fully disagree. Kreator has released, at least, 3 good records since late 80's. To start off, we have Coma Of Souls (91). Eventhough it shows a more rhythmic Thrash Metal, style in which the band started to experiment on the previous record, Extreme Aggression (88), it still has an amazing songwriting, great individual performances and, at least, 2 songs that any Kreator fan could name as their fav ones.
The "change" that can be heard on post-Coma Of Souls albums is not, by itself, the reason of the bad ratings of the album, but the total lack of identity, brought by over-experimented arrangements (at every single instruments) on grounds that were not familiar to thrash musicians.
After Violent Revolution (01) what Kreator showed us, was that the "change" can be for the good. And that still working on Enemy Of God (05) and Hordes Of Chaos (09). What I mean by that is: You're not gonna hear they singing in a silly way about devil, satan, killing and neither are you going to hear ultra-fast songs and solos with not a single melody in it, but, you will hear clearer, yet thrashy vocals, aggressive, yet rhythmic, riffs and so on. At the lyrical subjects, it is even a cowardice to compare them with older stuff.

If you sustain an opinion that there is some exact way that Thrash Metal should sound like -- in that case the old school way -- then of course you won't like 99% of the bands from that period that are still active for one single reason: they evolved (for the better or for the worse).

Lots of thrash metal bands left their style to be more commercial, more mainstream and stuff, but what Kreator only did was to innovate the style. I bet my ass that you won't see songs like Enemy Of God becoming mainstream at all, but they did contribuite to improve the so narrow world that Thrash Metal was in. Thank God they did it.

That's right, I don't like the way they evolved. I loved Destruction for the music they were playing, and didn't like the stuff most of those bands played after they "evolved". I'm not one who automatically likes all albums by a band just because it has their logo on it. Also, your description of Kreator's later material can be summed up with simpler words: They sold out, or at least made their music more mainstream to gain more fans. True thrash has its roots in the brutality and attitude of old punk, and that new shit doesn't have much of that at all.

First of all, I don't like an album simply because of the band's logo on it.. neither do I start to dislike them as soon as they don't fit a style label anymore. Also it is a trend to dislike thrash bands that don't fit on 80's thrash label anymore, like if there was any rule about how a thrash band may sound... That's narrowmindedness, imo.

Now, sold out? That's the most empty argument that can be. How is it a bad thing for a band to gain more fans? Do you really believe that Kreator spent almost 15 years to find a style that would lead them into a different -- yet same sized -- audience just because? It is not like exchanging your art for fans and money. That could be Metallica, but how is it applicable to Kreator -- a band that play in small venues and have modest record sales?

To sum it up.. they play what they believe in.. the have a history in thrash, and they evolved the style for something different from all the thousands of bands playing like Slayer, yet maintaining aggressiveness and brutality. And I'm sorry, guys, but if you call Kreator mainstream, you probably never heard they latest records.

First of their albums I have bought since RUST IN PEACE. I was pleasantly surprised.
Seemed like old school Megadeth. I liked it.

I am not a huge Megadeth fan, can pretty much take or leave them. But this album is a good listen.

I think "Endgame" is the best album of the latest albums that Megadeth releashed, much heavier, more solid sound, and i also think that this has to do with Broderick. His solos are unique and put a different tone to the songs.

I'll agree with previous comments that the instrumental parts were pretty damn good.
The lyrics scanned well too.
Unfortunately, the vocal melodies and choruses, to all ears present, couldn't be called memorable, and I'll bet that Dave Mustaine himself will not be playing or listening to "EndGame" AT ALL, within a year!
The vocal lines all sound like they were recorded in a cold, dark and empty amphitheatre sometime during the last Megadeth tour, whilst Mustaine was high on booze and downers!

Why are energy saving lantern

#27 Post by ijkl668 » 05 Jan 2010 06:41

Why are energy saving lantern

The ordinary incandescent lamp works

The ordinary incandescent light efficiency about 10 lumens per watt or so, life expectancy of about 1,000 hours, it works: When the lamp access circuit, current flows through the filament, the current thermal effects, so that given a continuous visible light and incandescent infrared, this phenomenon can be aware of the filament temperature rose to 700K, as a result of a high temperature when the filament, most of the energy is wasted in the form of infrared radiation, because the filament temperature is high, evaporation is also fast, so life expectancy Great shortened about 1000 hours.

The working principle of energy-saving lamps

Mainly through the energy-saving lamp ballast to the lamp filament heating temperature of about 1160K, the filament began to emit electrons (because the filament on a number of electronic powder coated), electron impact inelastic collisions of argon atoms, argon atoms after the collision Also hit was the energy of mercury atoms and mercury atoms absorb the energy generated after the transition ionization, issued 253.7nm UV, ultraviolet excited light-emitting phosphors, fluorescent lights at work due to the temperature of the filament of about 1160K, the temperature of the work than incandescent 2200K-2700K much lower, so it might also have increased life expectancy, reaching more than 5,000 hours, because it does not exist, as current incandescent heat effect, the energy conversion efficiency of phosphor is also high, reaching more than 50 lumens per watt.

Generally speaking, in the same wattage

In addition to energy-saving lamps white (cold light) in addition, there is still yellow (warm light). Generally speaking, in the same wattage, under an energy-saving 80% energy than incandescent lamps, with an average life expectancy eight times the thermal radiation is only 20%. Non-strict case, a 5-watt energy-saving bright lights can be seen as equal to 25 watt incandescent lamp, 7-watt energy-saving bright lights equivalent to about 40 watts, 9 watts equivalent to about 60 watts.

Megadeth - Endgame

#29 Post by Hansi Smurf » 27 Jan 2010 06:17

I listened to this album only one time thru, and found only "Skullcrusher" catchy and memorable enuff to qualify as a pop-song, and at that for only the first minute or so. Endgame must be Megadeth's lowest quality sound-recording since 1985!
It often sounds like MegaDave's in a dark arena singing all alone and far, far away, rather than hard and upfront like we metalheads insist upon!

What I think MegaDave's biggest weakness was here, was his inability to be a Divine Killer, insisting in the words instead that "all killers are killed". Reciting the anti-man-killing Covenant of Noah from Creator's Bible instead of revisiting "Princess of Mars" "Gods of Mars" and "Warlord of Mars" by United States Michigan Military Academy graduate and United States Calvaryman Edgar Rice Burroughs is a big mistake for any metal merchant to be guilty of! Live by the Sword MegaDave, that's John Carter's transcendental and immortal advice!

Me? My catchphrases these days are "Kill, Keep Killing" (a direct response to Noah's God) and "All Skulls Crushed", bearing no relation to the aforementioned "Skullcrusher", neither, nyah!

I think I'm gonna eat me a pork-bearing pepperoni pizza tomorrow, heh, heh, heh...
