    Hard to pick a favorite, IMHO they're an album band rather than a "single representative song" band. Also worth noting, they only have one vocalist who is doing both styles, and she is pretty damned great.

    Very interesting, thanks for the recommendation, John! I just listened to their latest album on YT. Definitely worth buying!

    OMFG that was off the charts hilarious. The most Metal Reggae Church.......

    The ending with the protestors, etc. is amazing.

    Gene Hoglan playing a Death track "The Philosopher" in the studio. SOOOO killer. I love how he has a ride right next to his hi-hat....great idea to combine those while grooving....usually it's one or the other.

    Brand new Metallica track, taken from the new album 72 Seasons (out next spring).

    I like the hook in the melody way better than the riff

    It's working for me quite a bit. Even the cover of the new album which was WTF?! on first glance now looks really cool. I'm getting a good feeling about this one (I liked the last couple, but then they could only go up from where they were at with Lulu).

    How crazy is it that come next year, St. Anger will be the half-way point of their recording career?

    I haven't been much of a fan of anything Metallica since And Justice..., but I gotta say I kinda dig this! Getting a Motorhead-ish vibe. We'll see about the rest of the album though...

    For those who jumped off the ship a long time ago, I really dig "Death Magnetic" from 2008 and would recommend it. For me it was a good return to form.

    Agreed. Some killer tracks on that one, and on Hardwired To Self Destruct too. They are both on the long-ish side, but the best tracks from both make a great playlist.

    I couldn't listen to the ear-bleeding mix on Death Magnetic, it was just loud and shrill. It was like "let's take the worst aspects of Justice, compress the hell out of it, and crank the volume".

    Agree, both albums were too long and could have been paired down a bit, but as you say, the best tracks are really good.

    Good point, the mix on that album left a lot to be desired, but I still think the material is really good for the most part.

    This 100% - unlistenable for me (death magnetic that is....)

    Whatever you do - get hold of the EP by Kirk Hammett called Portals.

    NOTHING like Metallica's typical music, and (IMO) a candidate for the best album (well ... EP) of the year.

    All instrumental, and very proggy.
    Regards,

    Duncan

    Yes, that was great. Looks like the production on the new Metallica album is decent (and modern of course), so that could only be a good thing. Hopefully the tunes are inspired and groovy. I listened to the 1st three last week...Kill Em All is pretty killer! But early Slayer is as good or maybe even stronger to my ears.

    For those (MANY) in this thread who prefer what I'd call "classic metal", I've just spent a few great hours with 2 old favorites:
    Royal Hunt : Paradox
    Royal Hunt : Clown In The Mirror

    Paradox, in particular, is a long-time fave. I hadn't spun it for a few years and was glad I gave it another listen.
    Regards,

    Duncan
