Megadeth’s “Risk” album was released in 1999. The album was considered an album under the expectation by Megadeth fans.The fans were expecting a thrash metal sound album, and this album remained below those expectations.
Megadeth’s mastermind Dave Mustaine spoke in an interview by uDiscover and explained a few regrets about the “Risk” album. He said:
“People expected that speed and thrashy kind of stuff. If that record would have been called the ‘Dave Mustaine Project,’ people would have loved it. But because it said Megadeth, they expected Megadeth.
And that was my mistake; I should have called it a solo record. But I had the band guys on there, which would have been totally disrespectful to do that.”
