Rock Giants Megadeth Unleash Rattleheads NFT Collection

The collection features the band’s mascot, Vic Rattlehead

American thrash metal band, Megadeth has announced its latest NFT collection. The Rattleheads NFT collection includes artwork of the band’s skeletal mascot, Vic Rattlehead, a being born into a dungeon of torment. Previously, the band auctioned off its first NFT, an exclusive 1 of 1, on Rarible in April 2021.

Megadeth’s Rattlehead NFT collection will be available via Atomic Hub and Open Sea, even though the two are not cross-chain compatible. The NFTs will include unique mission deployment mechanics as well as additional features yet to be announced.

 “As long as Megadeth has been a band, I’ve ensured that we were leading the charge. Our first album set the standard for thrash metal,” said Megadeth vocalist and guitarist Dave Mustaine. “We were the first band to have a website. Our fan club Cyber Army was started in 1994. Our 2016 album Dystopia came with a full Virtual Reality experience. And now, with the rise of Web3 technology and its ability to directly connect us with our fans–this moment is perfect for Megadeth. It allows the ultimate connection with our community and with none other than the almighty Vic Rattlehead as our standard-bearer.”

Megadeth was formed in 1983 by band members David Ellefson and Dave Mustaine and is considered to be one of the four thrash metal bands primarily responsible for the music genre’s popularity alongside Metallica, Slayer and Anthrax. The band’s newest album, The Sick, the Dying… and the Dead!, was Released on September 2.

Music and NFTs

Another musician to enter the realm of NFTs is Ja Rule, who promised to donate $25,000 from the profits of his Black is Beautiful NFT collection to historically black universities. Likewise, the Biggie Smalls estate dropped an NFT collection of 3000 NFTs featuring the rapper. The collection, which included rights to an unreleased rap, sold out in just ten minutes.
