    I was was just thinking that the guys in metallica were in their early and mid 20's when the wrote some of their best music,Lightining, Master, Justice where people in their early mid 20's write very diffrent kinds of music today, just seems to me that the Metallica guys were writting like they were lifetime pros in the 20's.

    Metallica is a great band and i am looking foward to hearing new music from them. I really am just amazed at what they put toghether.I think St. Anger is truly some of their best work, and i am a long time metallica fan.:)
     
  6. I think that Load and was a good album, but after that everything was ok, but If you want to hear some impressively fast playing, that sounds awesome their earlier stuff is the best example from any band that I have heard. But I do like their last album better than anything that has come out recently in "rock":spit: WHERE ARE THE GUITAR SOLOS!

    hey man im sorry but metallicas best stuff..god no. ive been a fan since the start and i have to say that after cliff died (R.I.P) the band died with it.... the self entitled was teh last ok thing and everything was down hill after that. and i rob there new bassits IMO is the worst bassist for them.

    Its all a matter of taste for me i get something out of it. But getting back to the topic isint it amazing they were writting this stuff in their early to mid 20's.
     
  9. Cliff was the man. Metal kicks ass.
    Jason was alright. Rock is good.
    Rob, I don't like. punk-"rock" sucks

    Tell Cliff Burton's zombified corpse that Punk "Rock" sucks and he'd use whichever arm had the Misfits tattoo on it to punch you in your face. And then he'd eat your brains. Because he'd be a zombie, and all.They like brains.
     
  11. I should definitely have phrased that better...I do like some punk and don't by any means thing real punk sucks. What I do think sucks is MTV's PG mainstream punk*.
    I should have said that I don't like Metallica's new sound: lyrics not great, guitar and drums ok, bass lacking, overall sound bad.

    I said what I said out of anger for what Metallica has become and hating a select few mainstream punk bands.


    *I admit I don't watch any MTV anymore so I don't know what they play (during the 20 min/day they play music).

    Another Metallica thought: Isn't it amazing that a band getting such massive support (from both record companies and fans), at the same time barely have written a memorable tune in the last 12 years!

    With a couple of exceptions, I unfortunately have to agree, Oysterman...:oops:

    But Damn is their older stuff ever good. KEA, RTL, MoP, ...AJFA, all excellent stuff, especially the first three. THAT'S why I support Metallica. Hell, who knows, they may do some good stuff in the future...:D

    Metallica used to be good, now they are mediocre at best. Metal have moved forward while metallica went backwords into a more rock sound. But I don't care, new bands have taken their place and that is a natural thing to happen.
