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...
Agreed, “And Justice for All” even started to get a little strained at times.
I loved “Reign in Blood”, a very fine album but “Hell Awaits”, pound for pound, smacked the shit out of most albums I’ve heard then and heard since.
Well opening up for those two bands would be a tall order, any day of the freakin century.
I remember seeing a tour called the monsters of metal tour in Seattle in the early 90’s with alice in chains, megadeth, slayer, and anthrax. Slayer made every other band look like crap. Alice Chains had that “what the hell are we doing on this tour” look on their faces. Dave Mustaine was in his downward spiral, and Anthrax absolutely sounded like crap.
Slayer crushed. The first 20 rows from the moment they started resembled shock and awe. Brutal. Bodies and seats flying everywhere.
Everytime I have seen Slayer, they have just destroyed anyone on the tour with them.
The onlytime they were equaled was when I saw them on one of the first ozzfest tours that included fear factory, rob zombie, and black sabbath headlining with Ozxy, Tony, and Gezzer. Wow. That was a show.
Both those albums are incredible. “Hell Awaits”, just like Metallica’s Kill Em’ All was production and songs that was right before those bands hit it big. It was before all the money and fame. Its when it was purely for the music and the fans.
Anthrax wasn't bad but man did Megadeth blow the big one, the people sitting on the lawn were throwing big pieces of sod into the pavilion area which the pavilion patrons then began taking that sod and launching them directly at Dave Mustaine.
Complete hilarity, Dave kept whining while dodging the divots that were smacking him in his puss. Needless to say he cut the set short and departed with a hearty "F*@% You!" to the audience who was more than happy to see his ass exit stage left... even...
Slayer pretty much ruled that night, not much left of the lawn after that. Dave Lombardo's machine gun double bass pretty much bitch slapped the crowd.
Testament... Alex Skolnick smoked.
I also enjoyed Slayer’s version of “Inna Gadda Davida” which was only available on the “Less Than Zero” sound track. Tommy got da pipes boyyyeeeeee!
Just gave it a listen and it’s has to be the worst engineered album I’ve ever heard. The band should sue.
We need songs like this again.
