New Metallica

Post by 200 Bucks » Thu Aug 21, 2008 12:22 pm

what did you think?? It played on the RIcker show at HIGH NOON on KISW. Click here if you didn't here it:

I thought it was Ok, about half way through the tune it started to sound and feel like metal. It kinda sounded like they took ONE, SANITARIUM, FADE TO BLACK and THE UNFORGIVEN and took all those good riffs then made a song. Just my 2 cents.

I was only able to hear about half of it since I was at work and had to go on a run, but what I heard, it sounded pretty good.

Even though it's not a 100% "return to form," it's still the best stuff I've heard from Metallica since the Black Album. I'm buying Death Magnetic in the hopes that if it destroys St. Anger's sales, they'll be even more inspired to NEVER WRITE GAY SHIT LIKE THAT EVER AGAIN.

Though its not a bad song. The audio quality is fuckin with my ears. Does is sound like it was mixed too hot? I listened to the download I got from the Mission Metallica website and the version on the radio. They both sound hecka distorted.

That's what I was thinking, too. The kick drum is WAAAAY forward in the mix, with a ridiculous "slap" effect that is downright annoying. I'll have to hear more tracks from this new release, but for ME... for NOW...

Not very impressed.

OH - and ANOTHER thing - Does KISW REALLY need to play this new song so often? That's getting on my nerves more than anything.

Well, you've got a POINT...

But I still don't know why they DO this. Do they think people will end up loving a song if it's pounded into their skull 500 times a day? Yeah... payola no longer exists!:rolleyes:

Well, it's not bad...but it ain't great either. I'm glad that they ditch the St. Anger format. I'll reserve my overall judgement when I have the chance to listen to the entire album a few times. As always with post-1990 Metallica, time will tell on this one.

I'm not impressed either.

They seriously need to rename their band.

A rep from Metallica's site issued a statement about the fucked up sound quality:

Word word word! :cheers:

And MG, I thought they should have changed their name after the black album. Allot of it's good rock, just not Metallica.

Although better than St Anger IMO, I thought it sucked... but so have their last several albums so at least they're consistent.

it's sad that a thread for a shit band like Metallica gets more attention than local bands on here. And KISW is not worth listening to at all, so why even bother? i gave it a chance, and it's not good IMO. they need to call it a day already

On Oof's thread, I got as far as listening to one of the song's up untill James started in and wham-o! That was enough of that crap.

RIP the Hetfield that could growl. :(

*edit
Alright, I went back and listened to Jeff's link to give it a fairer chance than I had intended and... meh. As I was reading the comments, I believe the person that wrote this summed it up nicely:

"It sounds like Metallica trying to sound like Metallica"
I made the Devil do it.

that album was good for me when I was in elementary school, but there's soooo many other better bands to listen to, as you all know. When I recently watched a performance of metallica performing Dyers Eve, I was quite disappointed. Whiny, yelpy cowboy vocals, and shitty drums (those drums were okay for 87-88, he could of made it better, but he can't, he sucks at drumming). I hope they don't go on tour, I hope they quit.

Still awfully weak. His vocals suck. It's NOT a "return to form". A couple bright spots in one song don't make me want to buy an album. I'll need to hear a lot more. I can't wait to hear the next Megadeth CD.

Yeah but at least those bands have stayed true to what they write and play. Unlike the gay ass Lars, Kirk and James who have done just the opposite and sold out !!!!!! I understand we all need to pay bills but I have not been impressed with anything since Master!!!!
