- Megadeth’s “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” charted at No. 3 in the US with 48,000 equivalent album units sold.
Megadeth, the father of thrash metal, has released an NFT collection on the Web3 platform in honor of Dave Mustaine’s 61st birthday. The band’s iconic ideas and graphics are drawn from nearly 40 years of “Rattleheads” as generative art. The collection is based on Vic Rattlehead, the skeletal mascot of Megadeth.
The collection, created by Five To One Collective in collaboration with Upper Echelon Studios, is based on Megadeth’s devoted Cyber Army fan club and includes militaristic “mission deployment mechanics” in addition to a large amount of additional usefulness that will be made clear in later releases.
According to Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine, he has made sure that the band has been leading the way for as long as it has existed. He stated that they were the first band to have a website and that their debut album established the benchmark for thrash metal. In 1994, the Cyber Army, their fan group, was founded.
Dystopia, their 2016 album, included a whole VR experience. This time is ideal for Megadeth because of the development of Web3 technology and its capacity to connect them with their followers directly. It enables the closest possible relationship to the neighborhood and Vic Rattlehead, its undisputed leader.
The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!” by Megadeth, which debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 list, sold 48,000 equivalent album units in the United States during its first week of availability, according to Billboard. It is the group’s ninth album to reach the top 10 charts. Album sales make up 45,000 of “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead!48,000 “‘s units sold for the week, SEA units make up 3,000, and TEA units make up a minuscule portion.
The band’s highest-ever chart placements were achieved by Megadeth in the majority of countries, including Finland at No. 1, Australia, Poland, Switzerland, and Scotland at No. 2, The UK at No. 3, and other countries. Megadeth also dominated the charts internationally.
