Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine and Capitol/EMI have collaborated to create and deploy the ultimate Megadeth boxed set: Warchest. The 4-CD+DVD collection features more than six hours of digitally remastered content, hand-selected by Mustaine, including 30 audio and video tracks making their global release debuts, and an additional three tracks that have never before been released in the U.S.

Warchest’s release has been moved from October 2 to October 9, and the set caps the in-depth Megadeth catalog remastering and restoration campaign, which has encompassed the band’s Capitol studio albums, while also adding new audio and video collections to the band’s arsenal.
