Can I Make An Entre MEGADETH Song In Only 10 MINS? (Speedrun)

    ❗ Speedrun FAQ
    Where can I listen to the finished songs?
    All songs are available on streaming services (including right here on UA-cam)!
    Why no bass?
    Unless I'm doing a band that's super bass-centric it's kind of a waste of the precious allotted time to just double what the guitars have already played. But fear not, I do add in some before mixing the song down post-filming!
    Do you change anything after the initial 10 minute recording?
    After filming I mostly just tidy everything up so it sounds decent enough for streaming services. I occasionally re-record little bits if I feel like they're too distracting, but I try to preserve the initial recording as much as I can.

      More so that he likes the Rust in Peace version of Megadeth. He doesn't mess with everything after, which is a shame. Megadeth may not have ever written a "masterpiece" after that, but they certainly released a ton of great albums after 1990. And even if you don't like entire albums, they still released some kick ass songs that rival anything they put out during their peak. Even now, Dave still writes some great songs. And the band he's had for the last few years has been the best lineup since the 90's. They are tighter than ever, and Kiko, Dirk, and James are top notch musicians.
      I get that some fans dropped off with Megadeth once Dave was passed his manic drug induced style of writing. But, I think if he kept writing RIP over and over, they wouldn't have the longevity they have. And just like every band that has a masterpiece in their catalog, every other album gets compared to it unfairly.
