Dystopia is the fifteenth studio album by American Metal band Megadeth, released in January 2016 by Tradecraft / Universal.

This album marks a return to the band's thrash roots. It's angry, extremely aggressive, but also tight and polished. New members, drummer Chris Adler (Lamb Of God) adds clean, thunderous playing chock-full of syncopation and guitarist Kiko Loureiro (Angra) with his prog background proves to be a real surprise. Mustaine has historically cooked up imaginative riffs and motifs, but has seldom had a guitarist who displays the level of creativity and style that Loureiro does.

The furious, stinging opener (and first single) The Threat Is Real offers bracing double kick-drum work, with a blazing riff and an off-the-rails guitar solo. Dystopia the title track single is more melodic but the kick drum and bass throb frame a chugging scalar dual guitar break before erupting into thrash. Fatal Illusion contains an angular vamp that borders on Hendrix and gives way to a bass break and a homicidal riff with modal and fractured rock chord voicings.

The intro to Death From Within offers one of the knottiest, gnarliest riffs Mustaine has written. The knife-like fills in the line ends draw away from the lead right back to the vamp. The anthemic backing vocals are catchy as hell.

Poisonous Shadows has a full-blown string orchestra and features pedal steel for added atmospherics. While Lying In State is the heaviest track here, closer Foreign Policy comes dangerously close to pop-punk but pulls it off.

It's easy to appreciate the music on Dystopia, it showcases Mustaine and a crack new version of Megadeth at a creative peak.
