Hailed as one of the best thrash metal debuts of all time, legendary thrash metal trailblazers Megadeth celebrate the band's 35th Anniversary with a deluxe 180g 2LP re-issue of their revolutionary first effort, Killing Is My Business...And Business Is Good! Originally released in 1985, the album has been completely restored to band mastermind Dave Mustaine's intended vision.

Remixed by veteran metal mixer, Mark Lewis (Trivium, Death Angel, Devildriver, Whitechapel) and remastered by Ted Jensen for an optimal listening experience, the 2018 version reveals previously unheard parts and performances throughout the record, including a missing drum performance found during the mixing sessions. This rare gem includes the full original album, along with 7 live audio tracks from VHS tapes found in MegaDave's own attic. In addition to the bonus live tracks, the re-issue also features Megadeth's 1984 3-track demo and the previously removed cover of "These Boots," that has been added back to the record with recut vocals true to Lee Hazelwood's version.

The re-issue is further enhanced by new album cover artwork featuring a fully executed sculpture of the iconic skull that has been lost over the many years since the album's initial release. The packaging also includes classic flyers and band photos pulled from their archive of timeless metal moments from Megadeth's storied 35-year history. Mustaine delves into the struggles during that time period as well as some of the surprising moments during the remixing sessions throughout the re-issue's liner notes.
