Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good! Information

Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good! was a low-budget recording on an independent label that initially failed to achieve commercial success. In fact, the album barely made it into existence after the band wasted half their recording budget on drink & drugs.

After taking the reins to finish the recording themselves, Megadeth’s first release was greeted with fanfare from the press, many of whom cited it as the beginning of a golden age for thrash metal.

Killing Is My Business… And Business Is Good! was remastered and repackaged by Capitol Records in 2009 where it went on to sell 250,000+ copies.
