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 ....

    • In all fairness, rank-and-file police officers are caught between a rock and a hard place. They have to enforce orders from above, even ones they disagree with, or risk losing their livelihoods. I bear far more ill will towards the policy makers and the ones giving orders than frontline officers. Now, that said: 1. The editing is manipulative IMO. I'd like to see an unedited video from several minutes PRIOR to what is shown and then through the incident, as is. As we all learned (or already knew prior) from the Kyle Rittenhouse trial, video can be twisted and turned to seemingly show what we want it to show, deep fakes notwithstanding. 2. If this incident was as heinous as the host claims, if it happened "last month" it would be everywhere and he wouldn't have waited this long to air it; he would have wanted to be on the cutting edge of interest. Me smells a rat.
    • I like this song, no issue with the GV. What don't you like?
    • Hello, me in 2019. I used to think that way but over the course of the last two years I have lost all respect I ever had for the police. In this instance, I honestly don't know. I'm sure there's two sides to the story, but I'm far less inclined these days to feel any sympathy for the police considering the roles they've played in covid management. Fuck them, I regrettably say these days. 
    • How overproduced is his voice?
    • Pushing the kids was pretty harsh, but there is no context. Judging by the way she was speaking, accusing the police of groping her friend, you'd think that she was likely inciting them. Doesn't justify the shove of a kid, but in a karmic world, possibly got what she deserved. I hate these clips, and the Avi is a fucking dick. He dissipates what he does by leaning so far to the right that he's as bad as the lefties. The cops wouldn't be detaining a young girl unless they had a reason. People honestly think that all 10 cops there was all in on being unfair and persecuting the girl? nope.
    • John Cooper of Skillet fame wanted to experiment with a heavier style than his main band allowed for, so the Fight the Fury side project was born. As you can tell from the video, it basically sounds like Skillet crossed with Slipknot. Not for everyone but I kind of dig it.
    • You've presented a whole load of easily debunked statements about atheism. When corrected you've taken your bat and ball home.  You had a chance for a conversation but for some reason unable to have that conversation. The you just resort to insults.   I turn my other cheek. 
    • The arrogance and hypocrisy in this statement is what is staggering. Maybe we could turn this into a big collective circle jerk for all the poor misunderstood atheists. I will leave you to it. Enjoy.
    • I know this thread is Mr.AOR's, so I won't impose, but I do need to post this one. I've posted it before, but I do think this track truly encampasses the true meaning of our modern day Christmas.     
    • Nice SCTV reference.   Rick Moranis is an absolute legend and good guy by all accounts.
