Meanwhile, the current single “Post American World” takes an unflinching and timely look at the state of the modern world, and the dark vision of the Jake Macpherson-directed video takes the subject matter in still more menacing directions. Most other artists are unwilling to tread in this territory, preferring veiled metaphors, or more often, completely ignoring the most important topics of our day. But with their current album “Dystopia”, MEGADETH refused to compromise their craft and identity, and as such have again set the pace for modern metal.
