Metallica lost me with Load.

 

Yeah, some of the riffing in the new album reminds me of old school Metallica, but for me it was the Black album that turned me away. Enter Sandman was one of the lamest songs i ever heard from Metallica. I don't want to ever hear that song, or album ever again. Nothing else matters? I was just slamming in the pit to Dyers eve 6mos before that crap came out.

Enter Sandman was one of the lamest songs i ever heard from Metallica. I don't want to ever hear that song, or album ever again. Nothing else matters? I was just slamming in the pit to Dyers eve 6mos before that crap came out.

 

I was 12 when the black album came out and I got it the day after it was released. I was quickly thrown off by the intro to Sandman and I never liked that song, among a couple others on that album but there still were a few good songs on it. It was still Metallica but it was radio-friendly Metallica and it was produced and written to appeal to the masses beyond the metal crowd. I do agree that Sandman is a terrible song. The lyrics are super cheesy.

 

Load was their ultimate sell-out album. They cut their hair, changed their clothing style to gay 90s alternative, started wearing make-up and Kirk was even polishing his nails, not to mention his comical looking Jheri curl. To me, they completely went against everything they used to stand for. Hero of the Day was so lame and that twangy Mama Said was beyond horrible. There wasn’t a single song on that album that I liked. Reload sucked too. I will admit I don’t mind Hardwired to Self Destruct. Definitely their best effort since the black album and the only one I’ve spent my money on since Load. I swore to never buy another Metallica album but I broke that with Hardwired. At the end of the day, I’ll never see Metallica the same way after Load and I sometimes like to make believe they ceased to exist after Justice.

 

I saw Metallica in concert once and that was in 1994 in Las Vegas. My cousin told me great stories about seeing them in Buffalo at the Aud on the Justice tour.

 

The only band that never let me down is Slayer.

 

 

If Metallica does play at KeyBank, I hope you guys that go have a good time!

Yeah i won't even buy the knew one, and will probably only see them again if they do a big 4 tour. I got to see them for their And Justice tour, as i said, and it was awesome. 1st concert too. But you are right about Slayer, i think they just keep getting heavier. Lol

Slayer was able to do it without selling out. And won 2 grammys. They did it their own way. If you go against what you believe in, its selling.

All I remember of Metallica was the fact they exposed my favorite free download mp3 sharing network Napster back in the late 90's.

 

Yes, back then the internet was the Wild West of theft and copyright infringement. Metallica was the band that hardcore class action sued Napster.

 

No hard feelings now, they were justified in protecting their musical property.

I was against Lars for the Napster thing at the time but he was right all along.

 

That was the beginning of online downloading. Bands now don’t make their money off of record sales like they used to. Most people now legally download albums off of iTunes but I reckon bands hardly make anything off of those sales. So now they make the most of their money off of touring and playing live, which is why concerts are so much more expensive than they used to be.

 

The internet has changed things in so many ways.

I knew someone was going to mention that album. People have their opinions about that one.

 

I personally love that album. It came out at a time when all those awful nu-metal bands became the thing. It’s different than anything they’d done before but it was still Slayer. I saw them on that tour with Sick Of It All and Meshuggah opening and their set started with the opening track on the album Bitter Peace and I about lost my mind.

 

Slayer hasn’t made a bad album in my opinion but my least favorite is God Hates Us All.

I hated that album when it first came out, but it grew on me years later. Metal bands were experimenting and changing directions back then and this album got me worried. Metallica had Black/Load..etc, Megadeth had Cryptic Writings/Risk.. then here came Diabolus and I was like "Oh shit.. here we go. My world is over." :niterider

I loved the one where they did some of the old school punk covers. Minor threat and DRI shit. Guilty for being white is a classic

Their new album is really good

 

It's OK, better than previous releases, but the magic of the first few albums is long gone

Amen to that, Brother!!

 

When I Was in the Army, in 84, I saw a section in, I think Circus Magazine called New Blood, which featured new and unknown bands. I thought the name Metallica was awesome. In 1986, in San Antonio, I heard the song Sanitarium and I was hooked. Between then and the Metallica/Guns & Roses tour, I saw them 8 times, 4 with Cliff Burton. The first was the Master of Puppets tour, opening for Ozzy in Austin, TX. I never saw anything like that before. 4 guys just playing, nothing fancy but really playing hard, hair whipping around, screaming vocals, screaming leads, loud, fast heavy.... I was all in on Metallica. I was that guy with the Ride The Lightning Back panel patch on my jean jacket, long hair, almost down to my waist and bled all things Metallica.

 

I tried to like the Black Album and found a few good songs on there, but the magic was dwindling.

 

By then I had started to morph over to Slayer, Venom, Exodus and the upcoming Death Metal scene

 

Now, I don't follow Metallica at all anymore. Haven't for years... it's a shame

In like 1990, at Cavages at Main Place Mall,, I bought the Hell Awaits Picture disc, never played it. In 2003, when Slayer was on Ozzfest, I was working for Six Flags in Production and brought that Album in for the band to sign. They were amazed, having only printed 1100 copies and happy to sign it! then 2006 came along and I lost everything I owned in the unwanted move to Illinois. That's one of the things i regret losing the most.

 

Here's a good story. A few months ago I was demoing the Polk Audio Smart System we carry for an older, in their 60's Lesbian couple in the country. I put on SiriusXM, 70's rock and they were like, got anything faster?? lol, I put on Hair Nation and the one woman said, anything heavier?? I put on Liquid Metal and Sevendust was on and she smiled and asked me to crank it up. Then she said to me, "hey, my generation INVENTED heavy metal!!" I was in awe!
