Released: January 21, 2016 | Universal Music Enterprises Dystopia
Dystopia is Megadeth’s 15th studio album, released January 22, 2016. The first single from the album, “Fatal Illusion” was released digitally on October 2, 2015. Dave Mustaine told Revolver magazine, “There’s a lot of riffing going on in there, that’s for damn sure. There’s a lot of solos, a lot of pounding drums and bass. I knew from the start that I wanted to go back to my roots, and I wanted to make a thrash record”.
Dystopia debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Rock & Hard Rock Albums charts, No. 2 on the Top Current Albums chart and No. 3 on The Billboard 200. On February 12, 2017, Megadeth picked up their first-ever Grammy for “Best Metal Performance” at the 59th annual Grammy Awards, nominated for “Dystopia”, the title track of the album.
