MEGADETH mainmain Dave Mustaine has revealed that he’s working on a special project to celebrate 30th Anniversary of band’s debut album, “Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!”. He said that he’s working with producer/mixer Mark Lewis (CANNIBAL CORPSE, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER)
on this project and that details will be revealed soon.
“Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!” was released on June 12, 1985, through Combat Records. At the beginning of 1985, the band was given $8,000 by Combat to record and produce its debut album. After spending half of the album’s budget on drugs, alcohol and food, the band was forced to fire their original producer and produce the album themselves. Despite the resulting poor production, the album was a well-received effort that obtained strong reviews in various music publications. “Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good!” played an essential role in establishing thrash metal as an authentic subgenre of heavy metal music.
