Back in the midst of MEGADETH‘s zenith in the early to mid 1990’s, the band did not have to rely on nostalgia and past victories in order to legitimize their relevance. They released an excellent compilation of their unreleased songs that mostly made appearances on various movie soundtracks. If you don’t own Hidden Treasures, you better get your arse in gear. This release also marked the final years of MEGADETH before they fell further victim to their own desire to expand their commercial success.
Check out this interview with guitarist Marty Friedman and vocalist/guitarist Dave Mustaine regarding the release.
