I'll be honest. I don't think I gave Death Magnetic a chance because I've hated everything they put out since
the Black album. I really couldn't say whether I like it or not. At one time I thought Metallica was the only band
out their that could rival Priest. Now I just hate them. Then I watched The Big Four dvd and saw how bad James
sounds live and now I have no interest in them whatsoever. That clip that JD posted I don't know how to take.
The music part of it sounded like it might jam but the spoken word part from Lou was a little strange. If they do
release that I'm glad they're going with a name change. It might make it a little easier to accept for Metallica diehards.
I hate bashing Metallica because I loved them so much at one time. I kept hoping they would turn into a metal band
again but after St. Anger my hope turned into hate. Sort of like what's going on in my mind with Priest right now. [Show/Hide Quoted Message](Quoting Message by . from Tuesday, October 04, 2011 5:53:53 PM)
I have to say, Budred, I'm not very familiar with Metallica's work as of late but I heard one of their songs on the radio a few months back and that was from Death Magnetic, I think. I turned the AM radio on and this Metallica I never heard was blaring and good. I remember asking if this was some old Metallica release I was that surprised. Decades ago, when the Black Album came out, I liked it. Very melodic. Metallica always put out some great melody+speed. I don't think I like Master of Puppets like I like Ride The Lightning, which is the album that introduced me to this band.
I have come to respect Metallica for reasons such as giving credit to the bands that inspired them in more than words and hollow tributes.
When Metallica goes, it will be very sad indeed.

We don't need no education
We don't need no thought control
Teacher, leave those kids alone.
My best since... comment was sarcasm.
I've hated everything they've released after (Black) and saying that is the best since says how bad they are.
Nu metal or old metal, I don't really care as long as it's heavy. I would be bored if all I listened to was old metal.

Best Metallica you've heard since the Black album? Well,I hate everything after ...And Justice For All but this is the the "worst crap I have ever heard from craptallica" hands down.
As I said before,Hetfield is all a sudden a huge Lou Reed fan and claims hes been one for years ect...yet I'd bet if you were to ask him ifd he likes Lou Reed back in 1986 he would of spit on you! lol! Its all good Budred,people can like whatever they want to, I'm not a music police but its my right to think people suck for liking this bullshit. Fuck off to "nu" metal!!! lol!
Calm down J.D.(lol)
Read my post, it says best Metallica I've heard since the "Black" album.
That's my way of saying everything since has sucked. I won't say I like or hate
this until I've heard it. As for getting into old school metal, I do, (But!!!) I like nu also.
Can't change that for anyone's liking but my own.

Sorry Budred but I have to disagree, respectfully of course. The lyrics are pretty harsh/heavy/doom. This is doomier than doom metal and goth combined. It's lou-metal. I like it. And Lars use of the drums is beyond hope: because for him it's Christmas every day :-) Jingle Bells all the way ;-)
The lyrics of another of the songs are posted on Blabbermouth and I have to say they're pretty good. Metallica has earned the right to play with whomever they want. I like the poetry.
