    There's probably 100's of these threads, but I was wondering what you guys thought of Meallica's new album. Personally, I think it's a kick a** album. Certainly not their best, but still ridiculus. I think it resembles ...AJFA out of all their albums the most.
  2. Never been an over the top Metallica fan. Always liked their first 3 albums the best but I bought this yesterday and it is their strongest, most consistent album since the 80s. It does kick a lot of a$$. Very strong.

    I think its an amazing album... i think they took the best of all they have done over the years and compiled it together... really good.

    all nightmare long is my current favorite song

    I seem to like it a little more each time I listen to it. Some classic Metallica feel to the riffs and solos. Even if its not their best it still makes for a cool listen.

    I logged on this afternoon for the sole purpose of reading and responding to a Death Magnetic thread. There may be 100 threads, but I'm glad I found this one.

    OK. It bored me. The first song certainly rocked, can't argue that. But the first listen through I had to cut it off at song 8. I said to myself, "No thanks, Metallica. It's been a long week and I can't finish this CD." That's a bad sign in my book. I know Metallica always pushes 7 minutes a song, so that wasn't the main problem. I'll keep giving it a try and gradually digest it, but as of now it's not getting much play.

    So, just some guy's review. Take it for just that.

    Well, the new Metallica is a touchy subject.
    There seem to be as much people that like Metallica's new stuff as there are people that loath Metallica's new stuff.

    I suggest we put up two official clubs: the "I hate new Metallica club" and the "I like new Metallica club". :)
    And each thread must be labelled in some way to indicate if it is to hate Metallica or to praise Metallica.

    And if a member from a different club posts in the wrong kind of thread, he should get a sanction.

    This way there will be no flame wars, and we keep our freedom of speech. :D

    I'm thinking out loud. :smug:

    Although it would be dangerous to have "I hate new Metallica clubmember" in your sig... with Major Metal around. :meh:

    LOL I think the thread for the club would get locked so fast the internet would spin :D

    I like it the more I listen to it. Beats the shat out of anything else they've released in the last 10 yrs.

    Love Trujillo's "influence". He's the best muso in that band hands down.
  9. I disagree, I think he's on par with Kirk.

    boy band much?
  11. I like it. Way better than their previous efforts. I'm glad to see them go back to their "old" formula for writting songs.

    Is that photoshopped?
    That Lars and Kirk were pasted in between James and Rob to cover up indecent behavior.


    Btw; why would Lars pose like that? It's a giveway to put slogans on it in the trend like: "Napster Napster, what you gonna do? What you gonna do when we come for you?".

    They should change their name to Hard Rock-ica

    No, that's what they should've done in the 90s.

    In this century it should be "Crap Rock-icka".


    (this post might be edited be a certain moderator :meh:)

    all of their new promo pics make them look like The Backstreet Boys for the 40+ crowd... which really isn't too far from the truth.
  17. Metal in the 80's and Metal now :meh: The documentary of them has left a really bad taste in my mouth that should have been what happened to Rap...

    i vote for Selloutica ...

    Honestly I used you like Metallica but even the newest album does nothing for me ... I don't know why everyone says they are the greatest band in the world.. i say they are mediocre at best.. but thats my opinion and I'm not trying to start a flame war or anything

    I think the new Metallica record is great...for a band of 17 year olds who just heard Metallica recently, bought all of their back catalogue, tried to copy some of their riffs and made a crappy demo of it.

    My two cents... I think it's because any band that comes close to them musically has unlistenable vocals. I've been looking for a Metallica substitute for awhile now and I just can't find one. Trivium, Mastodon, no thanks, I can't get into the singer.

    Like I said, just my two cents. :D
