Metallica is back !

Kicked major ass at the Weenie Roast last night, also were treated to some clips of the new material during the day on the PA, sounded great.

Whole show here

For this thread I've decided to break out the really obnoxious rockin' smiley:



let's hope Lars doesn't trip on his own ego and fall to his death.

looking forward to the album, most definitely.

St. Anger was horrible, as most Metallica fans will also tell you.

The clips of the new stuff played earlier in the day did sound great, let's hope it is. Maybe Rick Rubin was able to work some magic.

True. They were better when they were thrash metal (not trash since Black Album or Load), and it's a fact.

Unless people have a different opinion, and then suddenly it's not at all a fact. Go figure.

Of course everything upto Justice was exceptional but I did enjoy their 90s albums too. Nothing wrong with some variety. I enjoyed their forays into country tinged and alternative rock genres. St. Anger was a huge disappointment but maybe the next one won't be. One can only hope.

There are plenty of people (not me) that cannot stand their earlier work and only came to the band when they heard Enter Sandman. I enjoy their earlier work, I enjoy some of their later work, but I have to laugh hard when people make definitive statements about which piece of art is "better". That being said, I think we can all agree that St Anger was crap. Oh, and I get a kick out of the Blur devotee posting in here.

I meant to say that it's their best work for me, other people can have different opinions and I'm ok with it. Maybe it was not the best way to say it.

I admire their earlier work a lot more than their later work, so we're on the same page here.

That being said, I do not dismiss all of the later work, though, outside of St Anger. I hope the new album kicks ass, but, my hopes are not at all high.

You are correct, sir!

But their output before and including Justice... is reason enough for me to be a fan of the band and also gives me a glimmer of hope regarding the upcoming release. Listening to Ride the Lightning will always bring the optimist out of me.

...and those people are called "tools".

Metallica hired Bon Jovi's producer and whittled down their epic tracks intro radio-friendly < 5 minute songs, resulting in a complete dumbing-down of their music.

That kind of artistic compromise is selling out in the worst way, far more than using your song in a commercial to sell a product.

It IS a fact that St.Anger is crap.

I actually like some later stuff (some of Reload, Black, etc) as well as the Pre-Black era, what I'm excited about is that the vocal issues seem to have been resolved, and Kirk just absolutely nailed the solo on Master, although he did flub some easy intros, plus overall they just seemed to have an attitude about them that's been missing for a couple of years

The crowd doesn't come through strongly on the webcast video, but they WERE going nuts for the most part, although it was a predominantly punk typ eaudience, of course when I say punk I mean it in the Southern California-Skater sense, not the Clash sense.
