American Rust - Rust in Peace - Netflix

Rust in Peace is the fourth studio album by the American thrash metal band Megadeth, released on September 24, 1990 by Capitol Records. Following the departure of band members Jeff Young and Chuck Behler in 1989, Rust in Peace was the first album to feature guitarist Marty Friedman and drummer Nick Menza. Rust in Peace received universal acclaim from fans and critics, and was responsible for bringing Megadeth to the attention of a mainstream metal audience. It has been cited as one of the best thrash metal records of all time by publications such as Decibel and Kerrang!, and listed as one of the 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die. The album was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance at the 33rd Grammy Awards. Two singles were released from the album: “Hangar 18” and “Holy Wars... The Punishment Due”, which have become staples of the band's live performances. Rust in Peace features complex musical structures and lyrical themes such as nuclear war and UFOs. The album's cover art references “Hangar 18”. A remixed and remastered version featuring four bonus tracks was released in 2004. In 2010, the band announced a North American tour to commemorate the album's 20th anniversary. The performance at the Hollywood Palladium was filmed and released as Rust in Peace Live on CD, DVD and Blu-ray later that year.

The tracks “Holy Wars... The Punishment Due” and “Hangar 18” have become staples of Megadeth's live set, and are fan favorites. In 2010, the band announced a 22-show North American tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rust in Peace. The band performed the entire album at every show. Dates in South and Central America were later added to the tour, due to positive response from fans. In 2010, Shout! Factory released a live recording filmed on the Hollywood Palladium stop of the tour, entitled Rust in Peace Live. It was released on September 7, 2010 in Blu-ray, CD and DVD formats, and debuted at number 161 on the Billboard 200 and number two on the Billboard DVD charts. Rust in Peace in its entirety was released as purchasable downloadable content in the rhythm game Rock Band, a part of their “Rust in Peace Download Package”. It was released a little more than a year after the release of Peace Sells...But Who's Buying? on the game's download store. A cover version of “Holy Wars” by Steve Ouimette was featured in Rock Revolution. “Holy Wars” was also featured in Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock, while “Hangar 18” was featured in Guitar Hero II and as downloadable content for Guitar Hero 5. Both songs have been described as amongst the most difficult songs in the series' history. A sequel to “Hangar 18” titled “Return to Hangar” later featured on Megadeth's ninth studio album, The World Needs a Hero. It concludes the fictional narrative begun in “Hangar 18”, where the life forms said to be contained in “Hangar 18” come back to life and kill those inside the building before escaping. Both songs have been played back-to-back live, which can be heard on Rude Awakening and That One Night: Live in Buenos Aires.

Heavy metal magazine Decibel labeled the album as a “genre-defining work”, while Kerrang! wrote that the record “set a new standard for heavy metal in the 90s”.
