iTunes Review

This EP is Mastered for iTunes. In December 2011, Metallica celebrated their 30-year mark with four nights of unhinged rock mania for fans at San Francisco’s famed Fillmore. Each night the band performed a “new” song—a previously unreleased cut from the sessions for its 2008 Death Magnetic album. Knowing how quickly word spread on these tracks, the band released this four-track EP of that material just as soon as those historic shows wrapped up. Not live cuts or demos, these are four fully formed songs from the band’s studio time. “Hate Train” kicks things off with a nearly unstoppable pace, furious riffs, and the kind of invective that only James Hetfield can dig up. Bookended by a righteous call-to-arms by the name of “Rebel of Babylon”, this EP adds a few more flames to the Metallica inferno.

Customer Reviews


Why were these songs not on death magnetic! They should have just made the album longer. Amazing

Should have been left on the shelf

I am a huge fan of Metallica, but anyone who seriously thinks these are good songs needs their head examined.
The songs waffle on with no structure, riding on wave after wave of totally forgetable riffs. Hetfield appears to be making the melody up as he goes along, so out of place does he sound, and the lyrics appear to have been written by a child.

I need new ears!

I've been listening to this ALL day, I honestly can't get enough of these!

Metallica, if you are reading this, why did you not include these in the original Death Magnetic? They quite simply the best in your modern albums!

Keep it up!


Formed: 1981 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Metallica were easily the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s and '90s. Responsible for bringing the genre back to earth, the bandmates looked and talked like they were from the street, shunning the usual rock star games of metal musicians during the mid-'80s pop-metal renaissance. Metallica also expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions. The release of 1983's Kill 'Em All marked the beginning...
