October 26, 2007:

After a short breakfast session at KL Sentral, me, Benny and Jai Carbolic Smokeball started our journey to Johor Bharu. We took a rest at a hotel in Stulang, before entering Singapore at 5.00 p.m. At 9.00 p.m, Mustaine started the show with new single Sleepwalker from United Abomination. The crowd started to mosh when Mustaine started riffing with his Dean VMNT. The combination of Glen Drover, Shawn Drover and James Lomenzo is the best since Friedman, Menza and Ellefson era. Mustaine definetely proved that he’s a hell of a front man with his energetic performances. Classics tunes as take No Prisoner, Wake Up Dead and Skin o’ My Teeth was played non stop by them.

I can’t wait to meet the people, the fans, the culture, and take a piece of you back with me and leave a piece of me with you.” – DAVE MUSTAINE

* For those who don’t know who’s the hell is Megadeth…read my previous comments about their latest album.

Sincerely, this album was not in my ” along awaited album” list since i was frustrated with Megadeth’s  previous 2 albums. For me, Megadeth has lost their touch since the departure of Friedman, Menza and Ellifson. However, i’m definetely wrong this time as what Mustaine proved in this new album.

“United Abominations” holds some of the melodic nature of Megadeth while leaning slightly closer to the thrashier, “Rust In Peace” era Megadeth. That’s not to say that “United Abominations” is “Rust In Peace II” either. Far from it. Rather what happened is Dave added some speed and thrash elements back into the band’s song writing. The best examples of this are probably album opener “Sleepwalker”, “Never Walk Alone”, “Your Dead” and the second half of “Burnt Ice”.

The riffs and songwriting seem a bit more complex than anything since “Rust In Peace”. Glen Drover’s leads are simply outstanding. I also think that Dave has given us a lot of really good hooks, without sounding forced or cheesy. Tracks like “Sleepwalker”, “Gears of War” and “United Abominations” are reminiscent of some of the more memorable material on “Countdown to Extinction”. I was quite suprise with James Lomenzo (ex-Whitelion) marvelous playing in Megadeth.  The Drover brothers also did a good job with this album. Just beware, Megadeth is back…!!
