Metallica’s new album

What to expect from the greatest Metal band in the history?

Yes, I think they’re the best pure Metal band ever.  They slipped up big time with Load and Reload, but their early stuff alone granted them the best in business. 

And I still think St.Anger is underrated.  The snare’s sound alone made people complained too much.  Some songs are 3 minutes too long but this album was hard and raw.  As Tommy Lee said, people expect the bands they like to keep making the same music over and over again, if not then it’s selling out.  People have to understand that artists hate doing the same thing over and over and over again.  You can talk shit about them, but without Metallica you wouldn’t see Metal music as it is today.

And people hated them so much for the Napster thing.  They forgot one thing: almost every bands on this planet wanted to do the same thing but didn’t have the guts!!!  It wasn’t about money, I still believe that, it was about making a stand against the people who tried to make money from someone else’s sweat.  Sure, today people don’t buy cds anymore.  But most of the illegal downloading software today at least are not trying to make any money or fame.  Just say I’m not totally on their side on this, it’s just that I understand what they were trying to do.  Plus, Lars is just so very easy to hate, ain’t he?

I heard the one new song that they played a lot at concerts, it has a strong beginning but the verse sucked.  But I know I can’t expect too much, they were so good in the 80’s that no one, even themselves, could do better.  I’m excited to hear Robert’s input and bass sounds though, he’s so damn tight! His playing blows Jason away, man.

I have the cover here:  

Looks very modern, doesn’t it?

I’m waiting for its release, I’ll tell you how it is then.
