The track was recorded in celebration of Priest’s recent induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Thrash pioneers Megadeth are rounding out a career year by sharing their shine and paying tribute to another legendary pillar of heavy metal. Having completed a hefty run of tour dates both home and abroad in support of their universally lauded full length, The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!, Mustaine and company recently recorded a Judas Priest classic in celebration of the iconic band’s 2022 induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.

Back in September during an appearance on BBC’s “The Rock Show With Johnnie Walker”, Mustaine first revealed that Megadeth had covered Priest’s “Delivering the Goods”, the album opener from the 1978 album Killing Machine. During the appearance, Mustaine heaved praise on Judas Priest guitarist Glenn Tipton. “I had no idea how much Glenn Tipton and Judas Priest had influenced my guitar playing until I recently covered ‘Delivering The Goods’ with my band Megadeth and got to go over all those guitar riffs again. It was really revealing to me how much Glenn’s playing had influenced me.”

Finally revealing their rendition of the track, the Megadeth recording arrives just ahead of the officially broadcast of the induction ceremony which will air on HBO this Saturday, November 19th. The track is being made available exclusively via Amazon Music – HERE
