Megadeth at their finest! a great documentary
28 February 2001 | by (St. John's, Newfoundland) – See all my reviews

Evolver takes us behind the scenes to witness the making of Megadeth's 1994 album, Youthanasia. The film, while seemingly recorded using low quality home video cameras, gives us a great view of Megadeth's groundbreaking 1994 album. It also does a great job of shredding the common misconception that metal stars of the time, despite the posturing of angst-mongers like Metallica and Pantera, were also capable of being normal everyday musicians. Dave Mustaine in particular disproves the accusations of his being a "control freak" or an "egomaniac" and is in point of fact a down to earth and humorous individual. The entire band simply oozes charisma and provide quite an entertaining show. The view of the recording process also brings to light a whole new respect for the "Youthanasia" album itself, and gives much more to the viewer than the average heavy metal VHS would! You even get a few snippits of music from megadeth's 1997 follow-up album in the form of rough studio jam tracks! Evolver is a must-have for any fan of Megadeth!
