Customer Reviews


If turtles screwing had a sound this would be it....

Is this from St Anger? ... Ugh.

C'mon guys. You're better than this. This sounds like a St. Anger throwback with better drums. First time I'm not gonna buy a Metallica song... I hope the full album is better ... Feeling disappointed ...

Fire Lars and Get James Back on Alcohol

Lars’ drumming took a major nose dive somewhere between Load and Garage Inc.. His style reached a peak for me during the AJFA period while his GOD LIKE TONE reached its peak on the Black Album. But since then… oh lordy. I’ve read various reports he’s had several shoulder surgeries so that likely explains his terrible style.

James has also taken a dive off the creativity mountain too. A lot of the riffs Metallica is putting out are mediocre verging on terrible. His guitar tone is completely uninspiring. The last time I heard an awesome Metallica guitar tone was off of Garage Inc’s Mercyful Medley.

I used to be a rabid Metallica fan, even through the Load and Reload days. I just can’t stand them anymore. I can’t watch them on tv. They’re just not good and there is no way to hide it, dress it up, re-heat it. I wish they would breakup and splinter into some new group(s). Maybe then the creative juices would start flowing again.

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...
