  • During the chorus of the track Mustaine relies on a studio dub with him singing back and forth in a lead and background type of feel which sounds okay but at the same time possibly a bit too produced in my opinion
  • After the song loops and the second chorus is finished the guitar solo immediately comes in and it has an interesting tone, it doesn’t even sound like a guitar to be honest, it sounds to me to be like a harmonica mixed with a guitar which certainly has an interesting sound
  • Overall, the song follows a very traditional structure of verse, pre-chorus, chorus, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, solo, chorus, outro so this was a pretty predictable song unfortunately and the parts themselves aren’t anything extremely mindblowing

      Elysian Fields is a song by Megadeth which appears on their album Youthanasia. The track opens up with some brief noise before leading way to a heavy guitar riff with Mustaine singing over it in his characteristic Mustaine snarl.

      The guitar riff on this song isn’t exactly thrash metal that has come to be associated with Megadeth but it’s certainly got a nice crunch to it and certainly has an


      aggressive feel to it.

      During the chorus of the track Mustaine relies on a studio dub with him singing back and forth in a lead and background type of feel which sounds okay but at the same time possibly a bit too produced in my opinion.

      Although I’m not a huge fan of Mustaine’s vocal tone, I have to give it to him that he certainly fits well with his ...


      • music and he sounds pretty good throughout most of this song.

        of verse, pre-chorus, chorus, verse, pre-chorus, chorus, solo, chorus, outro so this was a pretty predictable song unfortunately and the parts themselves aren’t anything extremely mindblowing.

        I’ll say that the song isn’t bad and it’s an enjoyable track now and then but it isn’t a Megadeth song which I would really want to listen to all that much, the sound is decent but it’s nothing extremely impressive like Megadeth has done in the past.
