MEGADETH: "Killing Is My Business... And Business Is Good: The Final Kill - 6/6/18

'KILLING IS MY BUSINESS...AND BUSINESS IS GOOD: THE FINAL KILL' DELUXE REISSUE!

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, 2018 release 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. Remixed by veteran metal mixer, Mark Lewis (Trivium, Death Angel, Devildriver, Whitechapel) and re-mastered by Ted Jensen for an optimal listening experience, the 2018 version reveals previously unheard parts and performances throughout the record, including a missing drum performance found during the mixing sessions. 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.

A complete track listing is as follows:

Killing Is My Business...And Business Is Good: The Final Kill

1. Last Rites / Loved to Deth (Remastered)
2. Killing Is My Business...And Business Is Good! (Remastered)
3. The Skull Beneath the Skin (Remastered)
4. Rattlehead (Remastered)
5. Chosen Ones (Remastered)
6. Looking Down the Cross (Remastered)
7. Mechanix (Remastered)
8. These Boots (Remastered)
9. Last Rites / Loved to Deth (live) (1987 London, UK)
10. Killing Is My Business...And Business Is Good! (live) (1986 Denver, CO)
11. The Skull Beneath the Skin (live) (1990 London, UK)
12. Rattlehead (live) (1987 Bochum, Germany)
13. Chosen Ones (live) (1986 Denver, CO)
14. Looking Down the Cross (live) (1986 Denver, CO)
15. Mechanix (live) (1986 Denver, CO)
16. Last Rites / Loved to Deth (demo) (Remastered)
17. The Skull Beneath the Skin (demo) (Remastered)
18. Mechanix (demo) (Remastered)

The re-issue is further enhanced by new album cover artwork, as seen showcased above, featuring a fully executed sculpture of the iconic skull that has been lost over the many years since the album’s initial release. The packaging also includes classic flyers and band photos pulled from their archive of timeless metal moments from MEGADETH’s storied 35-year history.

‘The Final Kill’ is the complete vision of main man, MUSTAINE, who commented stating, “I am just as much amazed at the music we made as I am at the pure fact that we survived it all!”.

MUSTAINE further delves into the struggles during that time period as well as some of the surprising moments during the remixing sessions throughout the re-issue’s liner notes.

Sooooooo, no original/uncensored version of "These Boots"?

My question is whether they've succumbed to the Loudness War and squashed the dynamics to nothing. Slayer's Christ Illusion was like that, and it was literally painful to listen to.

I feel like this album was already completely remixed and remastered a few years ago.

Some of the extras sound cool, but I'll stick with my original Combat CD that has the uncensored, original version of "These Boots". It's unfortunate that it can't be included with this set.

I'm a huge Megadeth fan but I'm surprised to see anyone consider this the "best thrash debut".

Yeah, it's a great album but if I was making a list of best debut albums by a thrash band, I'd put albums like "Kill Em All", "Bonded by Blood", "The Legacy" and "The Ultra Violence" ahead of "Killing..."

For some time I only had "Skull Beneath the Skin" on K-Tel's Rising Metal album so I was happy to pick up the rerelease in 2002 but the censored version of "These Boots" led me to eBay for the Combat release.
