The fifteenth full-length studio album by legendary American Thrash Metal band.
Produced by Mustaine and Chris Rakestraw, it was released on frontman and guitarist Dave Mustaine's Tradecraft label via Universal Music Group. Prior to “Dystopia”'s recording, longtime drummer Shawn Drover and guitarist Chris Broderick announced their departure from the band.
Musically, "Dystopia" is more energetic and focused than anything Megadeth have released in quite a while. Following the lukewarm response to the band's previous album, 2013's “Super Collider”, “Dystopia” received largely favorable reaction from critics, being considered a return to form for the band. The album debuted at number three on the Billboard 200 chart, making “Dystopia” the band's second highest charting album in the U.S. after “Countdown To Extinction”, which peaked at number two in 1992. Additionally, the title track earned the band its first Grammy win (for Best Metal Performance) at the 59th Grammy Awards after eleven unsuccessful nominations. The album sold 148 000 copies in the US by December 2016, becoming the second biggest-selling Heavy Metal album released in 2016.
