    Hi, I was just wondering if any of you guys have heard any of the new remixed Megadeth back catalogue and what you thought of them.

    I got countdown the otherday, not compared it to the original yet but thought the reverb on the voice was a little odd.

    Just ashes of coutdown, on Megadeth site there was a link to that song.
    I wondered if Dave rerecorded the drum track or remixed, cause the sound of all drums it's so different. But it seems the same session of Menza, the same playing.

    Only some vocal and guitar parts were rerecorded on some of the reissues. The rest is the result of Mustaine's remixing.

    I've picked up Countdown and Rust in Piece, and heard some tracks off the rest of the albums.

    I like what I'm hearing, it definitely sounds more like what Mustaine intended with his compositions...

    But he definitely does not have a great command of reverb. The mixes are generally too dry, and when there is audible reverb, as andy said, it sounds weird.

    Overall, good work. More punchy and modern... just too dry.
