Additional info
Youthanasia has been banned in Malaysia and Singapore, as officials there have deemed the cover artwork 'defamatory'. Problems have also occurred in Canada and Germany with major retailers not wanting to stock the record, citing the cover as 'offensive' and 'not in good taste.'

Megadeth's Dave Mustaine has refused to change the cover art. He says: 'Keeping our records off the shelves does not make the problem of our children being hung out to dry disappear.

Four years after the epic Rust in Peace, Megadeth, under the command of the creative Dave Mustaine, made it again. For the greatest pleasure of our impatient ears, Youthanasia has been released in 1994. After the phenomenal success of the previous disc, the very metallic Countdown to Extinction, Megadeth's fans owed to be surprised, or could have been bored in a genre in which competition was tough (Metallica, Anthrax...).

Its a little bit rushed up in my opinion. There are overwhelming songs like Reckoning day or train of consequences but on the other hand there are just too many fillers. I still rate it with a 8, just because im a huge Megadeth fan.

I love Megadeth's prime thrash period quite a bit, but I gotta admit accessible straight forward hard rock/metal doesn't get much better than this- under-rated.

Boring drumming, no spectacular riffs, but as a whole this album is fantastic! Great melodic approach and excellent vocal performance by Dave. Train of Consequences is my favourite, though every song on the album in some way is memorable to me.

Great little album.

I've always enjoyed Megadeth's more straight heavy metal/hard rock albums for the most part though.


I would say from song writing and lyrical point of vew and music as well, its much better as 90's pure thrash

It's not bad so to speak but most of the album is constant mid-tempo heavy metal that is very alike all the time. It feels plodding aldready after 5 songs and when you realise that the songs never going to offer anything new you end up don't care at all about the last 4-5 songs. Elysian Fields and Reckoning Day is probably the best tracks and Train Of Consequences got a pretty nifty riff going on. Slightly better than the previous one but this is still Megadeth trying to evolve in a direction they weren't meant to.
