Death Magnetic, the new Metallica album hitting stores next Friday, September 12th has been partially released by Metallica on their web site. 6 songs are available out of the 10. You can click here to listen to them.
I highly recommend "All Nightmare Long", "Cyanide", and "My Apocalypse" of the 6 available to be the first you listen to.
I however have heard the entire album. They held back some killers. Like the 1st track, "That Was Just Your Life". Killer and heavy.
The days of St. Anger are long gone.
So give a listen to those available, especially the ones recommended and let us know what you think.
I think it Death Magnetic will premiere at #1 across the planet and the coming tour will be sold out across the country.
I am really looking forward to seeing this new stuff live. I want to see them pull it off. A lot of it is like Dyers Eve. Just brutal fast and intricate. No wonder it took them near 18 years to play Dyers Eve live for the first time.
As I have told others today after hearing the entire album for the first time, I have one word for this album...
Cool. Soon I will be able to download the whole thing on Bit Torrent. F’ Lars.
Ah cool I have to do some serious debugging tonight will check this out.
I hope it is solid from the first song to the last, otherwise I might permanently give up on them. So far the releases have been pretty good, now to wait on the rest.
They changed the logo back. Good start.
After listening to the songs I’m having Ride the Lightning flashbacks.
Amen! i too will be searching the bittorrent files to find the one that slipped through. i would have not been so exited to download all their files had Lars just kept his mouth shut.
Killer 10 minute instrumental as well. Suicide & Redemption.
At first glance it looks like a big vagina.
LOL! I'll probably go all sissy and buy a few tunes, but yeah, "F'Lars" anyway.
9 of the 10 are A+ with a single B-. The Unforgiven III.
The wait already over........
The music was too experiemntal and might be a hit with more work but it sounds like it needs some more work.
The band handled the loss of Dave Mustaine, Cliff Burton but the sound really changed after Jason Newsted left and was replaced by Robert Trujillo.
Hatebreed is becoming my replacement for Metallica.
I’m just glad they gave up that staccato drum BS that Lars put in St. Anger.
I bought that album and listened to it twice and haven’t heard it since. A horrendous effort. I can’t help but think that the therapist crap that they were doing then impacted that turd.
I hope Lars gets rid of that damn snare drum that he over used in st. anger.
Typical Metallica. Not as great as Master of Puppets. Not as bad as St. Anger.
Good opening riffs, but the track mixxing seemed off...drums and vocals very annoyingly mixed.
What a joyless pile of crap that was. But I suspect that is what they were going for.
Everybody went out and bought St. Anger as soon as it came out, they had 3 million copies sold before word got out how bad it was. People will be a lot more cautious this time around, I expect it to start slowly and take off if it actually turns out to be good.
