Megadeth “Dystopia” new album | review by Andriy Vasylenko

Megadeth Dystopia (review of new album 2016)

Dystopia, Megadeth… I don’t review albums so often, only ones which hooked me or I couldn’t avoid them. This is the case: no matter what my favorite bands release, I need to express my opinion about that. Megadeth and Metallica are in the list, and while Lars/James/Kirk/Rob are working on their first LP in 8 years, Dave and company please us by 15th album of Megadeth. Let’s see what’s going on there, in “Dystopia”. Just my opinion after 3 listenings of the album.

Andriy Vasylenko learning bass guitar

Keep on learning bass! As I promised, here’s more stuff from “An Introduction To Bass” (read previous article “Functions: what is the bass for?” here). This is the largest section, and my favorite one. Check out an intro and a piece from it – “Rhythm / dynamics“. I am a graduated pedagogue, so I like to analyse, classify, and teach. The chapter shows it pretty good))

Don’t forget that I’m not a native English speaker. I’m always open to your corrections and suggestions via email 🙂 So, here we go!
