Spanning over four decades of existence, Megadeth’s legacy pioneering the thrash metal genre into the global zeitgeist has garnered multiple platinum albums, with over 38 million units sold worldwide, as well as a sea of Grammy Award-nominations, including a win in 2017 for Best Metal Performance for their track Dystopia.

The group’s 1986 album Peace Sells…but Who’s Buying remains a metal masterpiece, while 2022 delivered record #16 for the Californian quartet with The Sick, the dying…and the Dead!. Actively still one of the most successful underground metal bands in history to achieve commercial success.

Also joining Megadeth will be Sweden’s In Flames. Formed in the early 90s and playing a key role in the development of melodic death metal and metalcore, In Flames elegantly cleave melodies and brutality in scintillating fashion. In command of 13 studio albums, with a brand-new record Foregone due out this year, In Flames continue to captivate a broad range of ages, genders and music fans. The group have also previously won Metalhammer Golden Gods’ Best International Band and snagged multiple Grammis award wins (the Swedish equivalent of the Grammys).
