    Not bad at all, I'm interested to hear the new album now. I doubt I'll fall in love with it, I'm kind of over Metallica... really... I'm way over Metallica. But solid cover, music is good, the bass is audible, the vocals aren't the ******** that was on St. Anger... the drums... are terrible. :D

    Really, Metallica would be so much better with a good drummer. But still... solid cover.

    I like it. Its not exactly Bruce Dickinson but Hetfield does well.

    It was sung by Paul DiAnno (its on the Iron Maiden album) not Bruce Dickinson.

    Paul Di'Anno Sang that song, not Bruce.

    I thought it was OK but the original kills it.
  5. I've always think Metallica sucks at covers. Every single cover they've made doesn't do justice to the original songs.
    Except for the Misfits ones.

    I prefer the original, by far.

    It's still really good though, best Metallica song in the last 10/15 years :D

    Um... Paul Di'Anno did sing the song, which he co-wrote with Steve Harris, on the Iron Maiden album but Bruce Dickinson has sung it on many occasions with several appearances of recorded versions of it featuring Bruce, including as a b-side to a few singles releases.

    As for this Metallica version, I like it. I'm going to buy this Kerrang just for this Maiden covers CD.

    Metallica somehow lost the feeling that original has captured.
    Drums were too much "on top" IMO. Great song and ok version.
  11. Listen to:

    Cover of Lynyrd Skynyrds "Tuesdays Gone" and Thin Lizzy's " Whisky In The Jar" and say that again. :smug:

    Thin Lizzy's version of Whiskey In The Jar is far superior.

    Not too sure about Skynyrd.
  13. Metallicas cover of astronomy by blue oyster cult is my favourite cover ever.

    That's because it was Paul Di'Anno, not Bruce Dickinson.;)

    There is a version of almost every Maiden song with Dickenson singing.
  16. That's actually pretty cool. The best cover I've heard of theirs lately, though I'm not sure how many they've done since Garage Inc. I know they did a Ramones cover, the Good The Bad and The Ugly theme, and I like this one better (probably has something to do with my love of the original). Perhaps a Major Metal:Dlica fan can refer me to their other covers since 1998.

    Breadfan? Crash Course in Brain Surgery? Those are Great Metallica covers. This one... not bad. That dark tone of Paul Di'anno's voice lends itself well to Hetfield's groaning vocal in this instance...

    I give it a 7..

    Right. But folks were correcting the earlier poster for saying that Hetfield's rendition was "not exactly" as good as Bruce, which, in and of itself, is not an incorrect basis for assessment.

    In any case, this is one of a handful of Maiden songs I actually prefer Di'Anno on.

    I thought Hetfield did fine. I think it is a good cover.
