      Holy Wars… The Punishment Due is a song by Megadeth which appears on their record Rust In Peace. The track opens up with a very rapid guitar riff which the drums imitate to add an extremely heavy rhythm to the song.

      Mustaine wastes no time getting into this track and the riffs throughout the track are just brilliant, I have to admit that this is one of my favorite Megadeth songs.

      Mustaine takes a while to come in with the vocals but the music


      should be certainly entertaining enough before he enters, the aggression on this track is obvious and the speed should satisfy just about any Megadeth fan.

      Mustaine comes in with the vocals as he sings over a variation on the introduction riff with a melody that sounds great and an energy which is apparent.

      A bit before two and a half minutes the track transitions with a Spanish-style guitar solo which leads into the song part of the song.

      I should mention that this track ...


      • is basically divided into two songs: Holy Wars and then The Punishment Due, this would explain the drastic change that you hear in this track.

        The tempo of the song slows down in this new section but the song maintains the very aggressive feel and still has a nice sound to it.

        I don’t mind this slower section of the song but my favorite part of the track is about four minutes and forty-five seconds in where Mustaine just starts up an extremely aggressive

        guitar riff which leads into the section of the song where Friedman just lets loose and starts soloing, this whole section is just brilliant and this is what genuine thrash metal strikes me as.

        Mustaine comes back in with the vocals of the track before the song ends in a strong fashion.

        Overall, you should be able to tell that this is just a brilliant songs and one of the best on Rust In Peace, although all the tracks on this album are just brilliant.
