Over the course of their career, Megadeth have released 15 studio albums (with their 16th arriving this summer), and the Megadeth frontman has just shared what his two favorite of them all are.

Via an interview with Loudwire, Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine recalled the differences between writing the band’s debut album, Killing Is My Business… and Business Is Good! and its follow-up, Peace Sells.. but Who’s Buying?.

Mustaine shared the following:

“The very first record we did, I had my whole life to write Killing Is My Business,” Dave says. “On my second record, I didn’t have that luxury of time anymore. It was whatever you’ve got and whatever we can learn, and how much time there is between now and when it’s time to record the next record. That’s the scariest thing for me — the time you have to make that record.”

“Taking this record [The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!] off of the list, I’d have to say my favorite Megadeth record up to this one is probably Rust in Peace or Dystopia.”

In another interview featuring the Megadeth frontman, Mustaine spoke to when fans should expect the new Megadeth album The sick, the Dying… and the Dead!.
