Meh. Not bad, but all four of these sound "unfinished." The lyrics to "Hate Train" are pretty frickin goofy.

 

That said, they could've easily left "Suicide & Redemption" and "Unforgiven III" off of DEATH MAGNETIC and replaced 'em with any two of these songs, would've been fine by me.

Rebel of Babylon and Just a Bullet Away would be the only two that could of been used for DM and as you said Keith leave off the two tracks you mention but yeah they do sound unfinished. I'm also reminded a little of St Anger in how the songs are great riffs but don't seem to go anywhere. I enjoy DM but Hetfield don't write songs like he used to.

Backed. "Unforgiven III" is just unforgiveably bad IMO. In fact, I still haven't forgiven them for Unforgiven I or II. I liked "Death Magnetic" (still do) and can see why they left these songs off, but is good to see they haven't lost the art of finding ways to make money from their fans...

So where are the Metallica fans?

It used to be you started a thread about Metallica there was a lot of conversation but not so much anymore. I guess Lou Reed disc was more popular than these new/old tunes. :whistle:

Or maybe the after the Lou Reed album they all denounced Metallica and moved onto another band.

I think that those were the days when the name Metallica had an air of greatness about it. The brand was flawless and everyone wanted their merch or to see a gig, and bands wanted to copy their style. These days no-one wants to copy them because they don't really have any style, and who wants to buy a Lulu t-shirt or pay a lot of money to hear those songs live? People were genuinely shocked when "St.Anger" came out and it showed they had very few good ideas left, but what's more shocking these days is that "St.Anger" is not the worst thing in their discography. Staying on top of your game is tough, especially as new bands come along and you have to step your game up, but Metallica haven't been able to compete for donkey's years. Their first 3/4/5 albums (depending on your taste) will always be legendary, but making some great albums 20 years ago doesn't buy you the right to a permanent fan-base and since then they've been passed by a zillion better bands IMO and are no longer worthy of your hard-earned money...

my bro saw them at O2 a couple of years back and said they were awesome (and he's been to 300+ gigs) so I guess they can still cut it in the live arena.

Yep they can still play, no question. The material has got worse but there's still talent in there. Apart from the drums of course, which are shit. I've seen them a handful of times and the best one was with Joey Jordison (Slipknot) instead of Ulrich on drums. Was great to hear someone behind the sticks able to keep time...

I saw Metallica in January of '09 (for the first time in 15+ years) and had to admit that they can still kick it live.

I'm just not that interested in Metallica anymore. I thought Death Magnetic was okay but with all the GARBAGE they've released since the Black Album, I just don't like 'em much anymore.

 

I'd easily rate every thrash band from that era that is still around over Metallica. Especially Megadeth, Overkill, Testament, Anthrax, Anvil, and even Slayer. All have been waaaaaaay better the past 10-15 years.

Thing is though that a live performance is like a greatest hits package in many ways, it points to the fact that in their day, they recorded some amazing songs, but then when you mix in the newer stuff, it really stands out like a sore thumb, but while you are in the euphoria of hearing a great performance, it kind of softens you opinion on the new tracks. Play those tracks on their own or a whole album of them, and your opinion will once again be that the new tracks are shite.

 

Death Magnetic seemed to be acceptance from the band that the fans didnt want to hear their progressive diversions from their core sound, but then along comes Lulu, an album that did the impossible and stopped St Anger from being the worst album in their discography.

Very few people expect them to fully recapture the sound from their first few albums, or the commercial blend on the black album, but what they do want is something that at least sounds like those albums, not some old fart telling us about what is on the menu at his care home today.

These days Metallica mostly leave out those new songs anyway. Plus they just don't play the old songs as well as they used to anymore. Machine Head sometimes play "Battery" as part of their set and it has all the ferocity of the original, whereas when I've seen Metallica play it they make it sound like a mid-tempo metal song rather than a raging thrash tune...

Looks like this 4-track EP is now available in CD format... supposedly you can get it at WalMart for around five bucks.

I got mine yesterday for $5.00. I went to my local record store and they had it for $6.99 (I made the right decision :tumbsup: ). They also had Hendrix- In The West for $7.00,I paid over double that.. :crying:

I saw some recent footage of them playing 'Trapped Under Ice', and it was nowhere near as ferocious as it originally sounded ... I appreciate that they're all older, and maybe don't have the stamina that they had all those years ago, but most of their peers have now overtaken them in terms of consistency of material AND performance levels ....

    • I'm with you and think it might be similar for me. I always loved H.E.A.T with Erik and was pretty much a Kenny basher as I wasn't a fan of those first 2 albums at all.  I had very low expectations and really didn't think I'd care much for new music with Kenny.  Anyways, I've slowly come around on Kenny as the singles were released and I'm enjoying the new album.  Yeah, it's not exciting me quite as much as the Gronwall albums did but Kenny sounds excellent to my ears and I'm having no issues with sound or production.  Just sounds like some good melodic hard rock to me.
    • Yeah, at the moment he's the only option for me here. A few guys I'm not really interested in and although EM was everywhere a few years ago, he definitely appears to have settled down recently. If anything, wouldn't mind seeing his name pop up a little more these days, though it's fine as is. 
    • I've been a bit let down by recent albums but the genuine anticipation I feel for new material from these guys means they must have done something right through the years. Would absolutely love it if they unexpectedly hit another homerun. 
    • Classless Act - Welcome to the Show Out of This World - Out of This World Within Temptation - The Unforgiving  The Black Sorrows - The Chosen Ones Horsehead - Onism i-TEN - Taking a Cold Look (Rock Candy remaster) Touch - Touch (Rock Candy remaster) Spys - Spys/Behind Enemy Lines (Renaissance double album reissue)

    • I have no real opinion on the band's schtick. I do have an opinion on their earlier albums - they contained a lot of good songs. The last few... not so. Hope they can pull something out here but expectations aren't high
