Fucking rule, right?

Not just the 80s stuff.

Not just Black album.

Not just the new Death magnetic stuff.

All of it.

Even the Load/Reload stuff.

(Possibly even some of St Anger)


Like with Doctor Who and Led Zeppelin, some of it might be a bit naff, but all of it is great.

Discuss.

NB - To hell with Napster. This is about the music.

I love For Whom The Bell Tolls (after first hearing it in the intro to Zombieland), Enter Sandman, Nothing Else Matters, and Master of Puppets. (when I borrowed my friends Zune) Unforgiven is pretty good too. Haven't heard any of the new Death Magnetic stuff that I can remember. I have the Guitar Hero Metallica game for the Wii and it's a lot of fun. I got 99% on Nothing Else Matters (on easy) and it made my day. Hey, don't laugh at me! Even on Easy it's still a six and a half minute song! :(

Which is odd as I'm not into other heavy metal really.

I love Load and ReLoad, but even I can't defend St Anger. While some of the songs are OK, it just proves how shit Metallica would sound if Lars had total control. I wanted to like St Anger, I defended it to the hills when it came out, but come on; It's fucking horrid. The drums make my ears hurt.

Yeah, not particularly into my metal (except for some sludge/ambient/prog stuff) but you have to recognise the greatness that is Metallica. And they're so fucking cool as well.

Really enjoyed them at Reading festival a couple of years ago, riff-tacular greatness and so fucking loud. I like their epic songs, but I'm also a sucker for their commercial tracks too (enter sandman especially).

Bunch of cunts though.

The Black Album - i can't begin to describe how much i hate that album it turned me off Metallica for quiet a while and i didn't listen to one of their albums after that until Death Magnetic which is quiet good and it made get the other albums. Load/Reload are ok , St Anger is shit though.

I liked "The Unnamed Feeling" the most, but "Sweet Amber" and "Frantic" were pretty much the only other good songs on that cd .. for me, anyway. I do love pretty much all their other albums, though. Re-Load is the opposite of St. Anger cuz I like all but a few songs (instead of just a few songs). I do enjoy the Load album a lot. The first 5 discs are genius and the new album is pretty damn good also. I liked the S&M cd a lot too. The orchestra added an epic feel to the songs.

While One and Enter Sandman are clearly cracking songs, I've heard them far too many times to consider them favourite songs.

Kill Em All is low on my list because it just sounds so raw and stuff. If they'd recorded it 6 or so years later, I'm sure it would have sounded alot better. I don't like James' screeching on that really either.

January 9th, 2010, 12:28 AM
It's understandable that a lot of people don't like the later Metallica. Based on my age, and the age that I started listening to heavy music, I was exposed to Metallica's discography from Kill Em All up to Load all at once. As a child, I found Load, Kill Em All and the Black Album, in that order, to be the most enjoyable.

Metallica is absolutely my favorite band and aside from St. Anger, I enjoy everything they've put out. S&M is my favorite album of all time. The songs themselves sound truly epic with an orchestra behind them. The Outlaw Torn from that album is my favorite recording of all time.

I think the Load album gets horribly undervalued because of the notable difference in genre. I'm honestly not a big fan of Ride The Lightning. For Whom The Bell Tolls is actually the only song on that album that I really enjoy and I prefer the S&M version of it.

In case you can't tell, I really enjoy James' singing voice and epic style of songwriting best displayed in the 90s. The numbers next to the song title are where they rank in my all time favorite Metallica songs. I excluded obvious choices like Master of Puppets, Battery, One and For Whom The Bell Tolls because I expect everyone agrees on them.

Cliff was their best bassist, but they don't become dearth of quality as soon as he dies.

No they don't suddenly become shit but there is a downturn in quality after his death. Of course it doesn't help that the two albums that came before his death are their greatest albums and they haven't come anywhere near matching them.

The same argument about the downturn in quality could be made about Guns And Roses once Steven Adler left as they have never come come close to matching Appetite For Destruction. Or you could point to Izzy Stradlin leaving and say that was the reason The Spaghetti Incident was shit and he wasn't there to help Axl with Chinese Democracy.

Most bands have a peak they hit that they never match. Metallica hit theirs whilst Cliff Burton was there.

PMBR
January 9th, 2010, 12:56 PM
I disagree thoroughly. Cliff was great and their early stuff is enjoyable. However, the quality of their music grew with age. James' voice definitely took a turn for the better. Jason Newsted had a better backup voice and can play all of the stuff Cliff did. Lyrically, the Load album is probably their strongest showing. Instrumentally, while a different genre, the songs are no weaker whatsoever.

That's just my opinion. Considering the genre change, it's comparing apples to oranges. However, even sticking to the thrash stuff, I think My Apocalypse could be on any of their 80's albums and nobody would have batted an eye.

Second City Saint
January 9th, 2010, 1:29 PM
Didn't James completely fuck his voice up by his own admission during that massive Black Album tour?

Lots of people hate St. Anger, I think its ok, just not a good metallica album. Its a little like Godfather part III, clearly nobody's favorite, but by itself, not taking into account what has gone before it, its pretty good.

For Whom the Bell Tolls was the first metallica song I heard and i think its still my favorite now. The epic one minute intro is the greatest riff of all time.

More honorable mentions:

So what- my warm up song when i start the day.

Whiskey in the Jar- a rare occasion where a cover version is better than the original.

Wherever I may Roam (s&M version)- epic on so many levels. As I travel about a lot, this has become an anthem of my travels.

Metallica is one of my all time fav bands. Seen them live a few times, always put on a good show. I would have to that my fav. almbum is Master of Puppets.

As far as St. Anger goes, I can't remember who said it, but they said it sounded like they just recorded Lars throwing his drums down a flight of stairs. Heh, i always thought that was funny. But it was their worst album. I'm grateful they did Death Magnetic. My fear was always that St. Anger would have been their last album ever. Ugh, imagine if they ended on that shit.

Hard to pick 1 fav song because they have so many kick ass songs. I'll just list some of my favs:

The 4 Horsemen
Creeping Death (awesome live)
Fade to Black
For Whom The Bell Tolls
Battery
Master of Puppets
Leper Mesiah
Orion
One
Harvester of Sorrows
To Live Is To Die
Unforgiven
Dont Tread on Me
Thru the Never
Bleeding Me
The Outlaw Torn
Broken, Beaten & Scarred
All Nightmare Long
Suicide & Redemption

Man, thats a pretty long list! Oh and my fav cover they do is Am I Evil.

I still wish Jason Newstead was in the band.

Wow. This is a thread I would've loved to make, but never had the balls to. I thought people would just trash my favorite band. I'm glad most of you love Metallica as well.

In my opinion, there is no such thing as a bad Metallica song. Of course, we all have blocked the atrocious St. Anger from our minds, but even that had really good songs in "The Unnamed Feeling" and "Sweet Amber".

It's hard to pick a favorite song, Really though, almost every Metallica song is a favorite of mine, so I can't pick just one.

HONORABLE MENTIONS FOR ULTIMATE AWESOMENESS.

- Motorbreath (K'eA)

The worst thing about St Anger is that they already had two non-studioed tracks in Human & No Leaf Clover which would both be great, and all they had to do was record more of the same (give it a decent polish like Reload/Garage) and release it about 2000-4. Unfortunately they decide to just write some songs which you can't tell if they're any good since the production is just downright horrible

Even I couldn't defend St Anger. Hideous album.

Death Magnetic though, had 2 tracks I love - All Nightmare Long and The Day That Never Comes - so was worth it. It also feels more old school Metallica, whereas St Anger felt like an attempt to be like the old days by someone who'd forgotten how to do it.

But I suppose 1 album with no redeeming qualities in 30 odd years isn't too bad going.

Metallica is great and I've found myself liking them a lot more recently. I had a friend die over a year ago who was a massive Metallica fan (like, beyond whatever you can think of) and listening to them since then I've just gotten more out of their music than I ever thought I could.

I hadn't seen the official video for Hardwired - awful video, why bother?

That's the best song on the album for me, nothing else really grabbed me on it. It's interesting that Lars and James have all the writing credits with Rob on one of those tracks. Kirk was just picking his arse and surfing I imagine.

My favorite band. I grew up on Metallica. I still have 2 VHSs of their Live Shit tour from like 1991. I drove my parents nuts watching those tapes of them blowing the roof off.

They have so many classic hits but their B side stuff is so good. Damage Inc., Creeping Death, Call of Ktulu, Lepper Messiah all great tunes. Damage Inc. has also doubled as my tag team or stable name in any wrestling game I've played.

They are timeless and will live on forever.

Love the first four albums.

The Black Album - i can't begin to describe how much i hate that album it turned me off Metallica for quiet a while and i didn't listen to one of their albums after that until Death Magnetic which is quiet good and it made me get the other albums. Load/Reload are ok , St Anger is shit though.

Must have mellowed with age because i played the black album the other week and actually didn't mind it. I'll check out this new album eventually because as a teenager I fucking loved Metallica and still do despite the fact they've probably put out more shit albums then actual ones I like at this point. Still can never decide if I like Ride The Lightning or Master of Puppets best and probably never will at this point.

Haven't heard the whole thing yet. But like what I've heard so far. Have listened to about 8 songs from it. Atlas, Rise and Spit Out The Bone are my favorites so far. Metallica was almost all I listened to in HS, but since opening up my musical variety around age 25 I've barely listened to them. Still a soft spot though.

I haven't been a Metallica fan since '91 or so, but there is no excuse for a supposed authentic 'metal' band who has denied selling out countless times over the years-- performing with that faux attention whore, Lady Gaga.

At that moment in time, you could literally hear the majority of their remaining dedicated fanbase dying inside.

All performing artists, by some scope of the definition, are attention seeking.

Slutty McWhoreface
March 26th, 2017, 9:21 PM
Well, obviously... that's fame...

but she does it for all the wrong reasons. She needs attention so desperately, that she has to borderline fuck someone on stage while dressed like a Muppet in order to garner it.

If you can't get this "attention" on pure talent alone-- then you are by all definition: "faux," phony, fake, etc..

she has blatantly ripped-off Madonna... who cries out to the masses about women being "exploited," sexism, etc... then proceeds to show her cunt to anyone who's brave enough to look at it.

I was heavily considering casting a vote for Clinton so I could get one of those promised blow-jobs from Madonna-- but instead opted to replicate the experience by sticking my cock in a bucket of raw sewage.

same end result.

On topic: I don't know what happened to Metallica... but they are certainly not "metal" anymore.

I look forward to Metallica's upcoming holiday album with Justin Bieber.

have some fucking respect for your genre.

at least SOME metal bands have kept it real... I don't think we'll be seeing Dave Mustaine from Megadeth doing a duet with Iggy Azalea anytime soon...

Metallica already sold out with The Black Album 26 years ago by producing a rock album, so your arguement seems a bit late.
I'm still a big fan. Where you see a negative, I see a positive. Yes, Metallica is very mainstream right now, but I do believe they found a way to please the fans as well try to target new fans.
Yes they do all of mainstream performances, but they still kick ass live. And better yet, they still make a track like Spit out the bone.
If the end results means that a 14 year old kid walks into a record stores and buys Hardwired, or listens to Master Of Puppets on Spotyfy, I'm all for it.

Some would say, including the late Cliff Burton, that Metallica "sold out" when they put "Fade to Black" out. Obviously he said it in response to someone claiming they sold out or whatever.

I'm more of a Black album-prior Metallica fan. Some stuff off Load/Re-Load is ok and everything else after that is so hit and miss for me. I think a big mistake they made IMHO was trying to sound the way they did when they were in their mid 20's when they're in their mid 40's up to mid 50's. James' voice just doesn't sound that good anymore and the music just feels forced. I mean it's not like they came out and said "The labels made us go softer so we're doing what we wanted to do all this time!" They fell out of the mainstream 15 years ago and since then they've been trying to at the very least salvage their hardcore fans who want new music but don't want it to sound like "Bleeding Me" or "Ronnie".

But they'll always sell out shows. I was able to see them 3rd show in like 1997, they did 4 sets and I was barely 16. It was supposed to have KORN opening but something happened so they switched it to Corrosion of Conformity at the last minute. 2nd best show of my life with the 1st being the Deftones show I went to last August here in Des Moines. Wish I had been able to see that tour with Metallica, Deftones, Limp Bizkit, I think Linkin Park was on it as well it was from what I heard really fucking awesome.

Not a fan of Kill Em All or really anything they put out after Black but I have to say....Listening to Ride through Justice, and then you turn on Black...Kind of depressing. Songs don't really have more than 3-4 parts, drums sound the same on pretty much every single song. That's not to say I don't love the album, I do love it but not as much as the other 3 I mentioned.

Props to Metallica though because next to AC/DC there isn't another rock/metal band that gets more radio play of their old shit than they do.

I love the shit out of it as a concept. St. Anger and Some Kind of Monster are particular favorites. It was just such a daring concept album. The band is falling apart so they make an album that intentionally sounds like the band is falling apart in a very physical sense. Brilliant.

I GET Metallica. I GET why they're one of the biggest bands of all time, but I have never been able to really get into them. I think some of their songs are great, I've learned how to play some of their songs, but I've never gotten the big deal. I've never seen them live and they're on my bucket list, just because omg it's Metallica, but I've never really been drawn to them as a band I NEED to follow and love.

Much power to all of you who love them, though, because that's awesome they do that for you. :headbang:

Didn't play Fade or Creeping Death, but you can't have it all when you have a back catalogue like theirs. 6 rows from the front. Awesome.

Getting in was a joke though. 100 a ticket and some missed the first hour. That said, maybe they should have just started queuing earlier. Doors opened at 6, we got in line at 6.30 and we were fine.

Nash Diesel
October 26th, 2017, 9:52 AM
I've only seen them once. It was right after Load came out. I was probably 14-15 and a guy in our band was dating a girl who's brother was older and could get us a bunch of good tickets. We wound up 3rd row and they played 3 sets. The last set they just set up some small cabs and played about 10 songs in a circle it was sweet.

And I don't care but I always name drop the older brother who got us the tickets was Josh Rand of Stone Sour. Still a good dude, put my best friend on a special guest list at a show they did hear recently. It was literally just his immediate family and then my friend and his wife.

Edit: I just remembered that I didn't even really care that much about Metallica as much as I cared about the original opener: Korn. Korn was really starting to make some noise around this time but for some odd reason they wound up having to cancel a few shows, ours being one of them. It wound up being Corrosion of Conformity but we didn't get there until halfway through their set.
