Megadeth is considered to be one of the pioneering bands of the American thrash metal scene and was started in Los Angeles in 1983 by guitarist Dave Mustaine and bassist David Ellefson, shortly after Mustaine's departure from Metallica. Acknowledged as one of the “the big four”, alongside Anthrax, Metallica and Slayer, Megadeth was responsible for developing and furthering the popularity of the genre. The band's debut album Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good! was released in 1985 with independent label Combat Records. Its success in underground metal circles was enough to attract attention from major labels and the band released their first major-label album, Peace Sells… but Who's Buying?, in 1986, having signed with Capitol Records. To date, Megadeth has sold 50 million records worldwide, earned platinum certification in the United States for five of its fourteen studio albums, and received eleven Grammy nominations. The band's 2016 release, Dystopia, sees Lamb of God drummer Chris Adler and guitarist Kiko Loureiro of Angra performing on what is Megadeth's fifteenth studio album.
