    The new album is out tomorrow, and late last night they released a video for a new song every few hours until the whole of the album was represented. I believe all but the first three weren't previously released. Great gimmick!

    My faves are the Lemmy tribute video for the song "Murder One" (unsure if the content is appropriate, so won't link it) and this one called "Spit Out The Bone".

    Funny that it resembles the look of this -

    As an old-school fan, this is the best and most consistent album I believe I've heard from them in a very, very, very... very long time. Sounds classic without being an outright rehash. I'd prefer harsher vocals, but diggin' it regardless.

    I loved Hardwired, Atlas Rise, Moth and the song you linked but.......

    After listening to it all week......the rest of the songs are just boring. Mid tempo, nothing exciting at all. James' voice is great and the guitars sound fat but the songs just aren't doing it for me. The thing I can't stand is they start with a really heavy riff and then turn into this mellow mid paced snooze fest. I think Lars plays the same beat in every song. One song even starts out a bit like Harvester and you think "great something heavy" but nope, not to be.

    I still love them though.

    I believe Beyonce came up with that gimmick, or rather whoever she pays for her creativity did.

    Kidding. It's a great gimmick in any case. I didn't say they invented it. Leo Fender didn't invent the electric bass guitar and there's no Easter bunny. No kidding, but we carry on!

    I like most of the songs I've heard so far and I like the idea of dropping all the videos at one time. But that video for Spit Out The Bone is just cheap looking. It reminds me of a student film or one of those low budget Steven Segal movies that is shot in Eastern Europe and released straight to DVD. I think Metallica has the budget to do better.

    My guess is they may've held a contest for indie filmmakers to create vids, and/or offered limited budgets deliberately. I dig it.

    Thrash metal, especially retro-thrash, inherently has a cheesy element to it if we're honest. Might as well have fun with it.

    Freaky! I was actually going to cite "Killing Technology" as a rare bit of thrash totally deserving of a Star Wars-like budget. Literally typed half of it then erased it.
