Who was their warmup band?

Personally, I prefer James swearing every other word, btw.

494 days!!!!.....
of course i have to get my 2 cents i saw Metallica live last thursday in cleveland. while certainly not their best, it was a good show!! can't say i 'love' what they are doing these days, aside from James not swearing every other word like in the past, the music was heavy and crisp....definitely the older stuff shined, however, i have to admit there are a few tracks from  'Magnetic' that i do enjoy.....again, does not come close to 'old school' Metallica!

Sad isn't it? James blames Cliff for dying..... don't even get me started on how STUPID that is, and yet I don't think Cliff would ever be in THIS Metallica. Cliff would have either packed his bags and left long ago, or he would have kept them on the right track! RIP Cliff - you were great.

Its not even that they are jerks,they can't even write a true "Metallica" song that Cliff would of liked,they have "lost it" and I just wish that they would "give it up" and quit.

I agree totally with that Becks. I don't know what happened to them, but whatever it is, I can't STAND it! I think more than anything else, their attitudes PISS ME OFF! I watched that stupid ass "movie" they made while Hetfield was in therapy thinking maybe watching that would help me not hate them so much. WRONG! What a JOKE that thing was! Priest would NEVER in a MILLION years put something like that on TV. I lost all respect for them (what I had left I should say) at that point. It's hard for me to really get into a band that I think most of the members are jerks.

I think the biggest problem I have with modern Metallica is the music, to me, is so hollow. Nothing raw like you get from their first few efforts, or ANY Priest effort (bar probably Nostradamus, being a concept album). I honestly get the feeling they are just churning out music for the hell of it, without any real feeling being put in to any of it. It doesn't resonate with me at all.

Yes Becks,they are "shit". I fucking HATE this band SOOO much it isn't even funny! I too like Guido was a huge Metallica fan from 1983 when I first heard Kill 'Em All when I was 13 years old to 1986 when Cliff Died.I still thought they were ok with the first Garage Days and the ...And Justice album wasn't my thing,and even though they kinda sold out by making the One video,they still could of "stayed" at the level of "metal" music in ...And Justice For All....if they would of kept that style and image all these years they may have turned out alright,but noooooo they had to drag thier band and name through the mud! Cliff would be turning over in his grave if he heard what they did to his band!!!!!!

I look at Metallica and instantly I shake my head in disgust. What a bunch of nerds.And they think they are hot shit and they think thier new songs are top quality.....that is a fuckin joke,James Hetfield is a dork and he has destroyed Metallica forever...there is "no going back now" they have had tons of chances to nut up and harken back to the old days,but they haven't and never will,even if they tried to it wouldn't be "true" it would be a "wannabe heavy metal album" and true metalheads will see straight through this crap.

Anybody who thinks differently is fooling themselves,I'm not saying that someone can't like the new shit,but to say that its just as good as thier old stuff,or to say that they are contributing to heavy metal they are fooling themselves and have no idea how much of a slap in the face they are to the true metal community,I hate Hetfield and Ulrich,they are a fuckin joke...they turned out "worse" than Paul & Gene!

Holy crap! Here I am typing on Shitallica and up comes a report on CNN that a Virginia Tech student disappeared at their last concert!!?? It was LARS, damnit, Inspector Clouseau!!! He killed Kirk YEARS ago!!! Any photo op was just an imitator or, perhaps, a clone. I certainly haven't heard him play a guitar in a few albums....
[Becks] Thursday, October 22, 2009 3:21:09 PM 
I am a Metallica fan, but I have to agree with JD and Guido - the stuff they are churning out now is craptacular. St Anger and Death Magnetic (the better of the two) just don't hold my attention at all and the songs are too long and self indulgent. Yes, their first 4 albums are excellent, but they started what has to be the biggest downhill slide in metal. I should note that I am a fan of the black album, heck I walked down the isle to an instrumental version of Nothing Else Matters LOL! But yeah, that's just a personal thing, I like that album. After that, arguably even before depending on who you're talking to, the shit hit the fan for them. I saw a debate about the best metal bands on an MTV website or something, and some young woman was arguing for Metallica to be #2 over Priest (WTF) and she said something along the lines of 'But that just shows how good Metallica is, even they can't top their first 4 albums!' Errrr the point is, they SHOULD be able to, but haven't!!!!!!

Good to see some firey debate going on on the site again. Especially on this shit for brains thread.
[guidogodoy] Thursday, October 22, 2009 3:04:15 PM 

I second that statement 100%! Anyone who knows me also would know that I was a DIEHARD fan of Metallica. What they are churning out now is supreme crap.

To highlight it, I bought a bootleg of St. Anger on the streets in México and it wasn't worth the 50cents I paid for it. That is more than sad. It is pitiful. I am one who has seen them some five times in concert as well. Really breaks my heart to say that I think James should start drinking again. Perhaps it would get him out of his dockers.

I leave the Limewire fiasco RIGHT out of the equation. I could rail on on what a stupid move that was for ages. Preach on, brother J.D.

To slam Metallica is the best way to describe this shit terrible band! Fuck Shitallica!  They fucking "SUCK"!! Bunch of metal - betraying back stabbers who turned on thier original fans writting pop albums to 14 year old girls.

To slam Metallica, ( one of the world's greatest metal bands in my least in their first decade of making music) well was just a bad example on your part. If you have experienced a personal problem with the band or just don't like their music for whatever reason..Doesn't mean you should dis them like you have..It's hard to argue their record selling numbers compared to almost any other metal band as of now, and they definetly have had a concept album (and.Justice.For ..All) ahem...Just be more careful with showing too much emotion on a blog when you're trying to glorify a band if it leads to pissing off others. You can seriously offend someone like you have myself. Props to Judas Priest and Metallica...Let the peace start here..SEMPER FIDELIS!

hey jtwa1,

i was actually on the constellation from 81 thru 82..i remember the non-skid very well!!! i also crossed the equator!  i love Nostradamus, and think the effort that was put into it is truely is a masterful piece of work! thanks for your support!

[jtwa1] Monday, October 19, 2009 9:15:51 AM 
 jackylone, After reading some of the posts I discovered you were a squid. Well so am I, and proud of it. I became a Trusty Shellback on the USS Constellation back in 1976 on an I.O. cruise. If I think about it I can almost still feel the non-skid from that initiation. I'm a diabled Vet now and spend a lot of time at VA hospitals and clinics. In fact that's about the only places I go so my music is important to me and I listen to a wide range of music. I am very impressed with Nostradamus. I'm not surprised the younger generation doesn't like it. It is, after all, it is a thinking man's album. That ought to strike a note or two.
[jtwa1] Monday, October 19, 2009 8:43:08 AM 
 Having been a priest fan since coming back from overseas in 1978, and liking all of their stuff, I have to say Nostradamus is their best effort to date. The writing and  Musicianship is unsurpassed and I believe it opens new doors for Metal. I don't like most of the new Metal bands because of their repetitive nature and bad song writing. One listen to Nostradamus and you can tell how much thought and work went into it. A Heavy Metal concept album, imagine that. I for one can't put it on without listening to the whole thing. It's like Progressive Metal. Some of you younger Metal fans may not take to it right off but give it a chance it'll grow on you. Priest has set a new course for Metal. One I hope they continue on and others follow. Metallica and bands like that couldn't fathom doing such an album. So I agree with you, jackylone, Nostradamus is it.
