Metallica '08

58 posts in this topic

Anyone excited for the new Metallica album? I see there are a few videos posted on 93X's HSOforum showing some studio footage. I sure hope it's better than St. Anger....heck, I don't think it could get much worse! And that's coming from a Metallica fan.

I haven't heard lately what the drop date is of the album, but I think the last I heard was the fall. It seems like lately the radio stations have been pushing a lot of Metallica songs so I'm wondering if they're ramping up for the debut of the first single soon.

cool

Metallica has a history of pushing back their release date a few times... I wouldn't be surprised if we had to wait until next spring or summer.

Yeah, I hear ya on that one. Lets cross our fingers. It seems like they like to play the drama card a little too much to get people whipped up for the CD release so that they can sell more....as if they need the money!

Die hard Metallica fan here too so this is highly anticipated. Funny, I didn't really get into the St. Anger CD either. None of the songs clicked with me. Very disappointing. frown

Absolutely!

So what is everyone's favorite album?

Without a doubt "...And Justice For All" is mine. I'm on my second CD of that one already since I wore out the first one.

Huge fan here...but of the "older" stuff.

"And Justive For All" was great, but "Ride the Lightning" and "Master of Puppets" and the best in my eyes.

I worry though, for right before St. Anger Lars said "Now we can put out anything we want, and people will still buy it". And, look what they put out.

I hope they go back to their heavy rocking ways and style. They can keep the short hair, just rock my socks off.

Lisa is a huge Metallica fan?? Wow, what a woman! (That was a compliment, Lisa).

Master of Puppets would be my top choice, followed by And Justice for All, Ride the Lightning, Kill em All, and Garage Inc(I know, doesn't really fit in the group but I like it).

Yeah, MOP and RTL are great too, but something about AJFA just puts it a hair above the those for me.

I think (and hope) that after St. Anger they rethink their idea of "putting anything out and people will buy it" because it was horrible and I don't know anyone that would dispute that and I bet they realize that now. It sounded like Lars was pounding on a soup can and that was enough for me.

I'm a Metallica fan - but I'm much more fond of a live performance. S & M - with the orchestra, was an amazing performance, in my opinion, just because it was so different. Battery with the orchestra was cool - scary and will rip your face off.

I am also an "Older Stuff Fan". I love everything before the "Black Album". Some of the black album is pretty good also, but you can't beat all of the other stuff.

FYI. I was in 7th grade when ...And Justice For All came out.

I too was sicker than a dog when they did that 3-night stand at the Target Center with Kid Rock and Sevendust. It was a pretty laid back set without all the lights and fire. Now, back in '97 I believe it was in the Fargo Dome that was a different story! What a show! I was right up front and they had a center stage with all kinds of things going on. Stagehands on fire, some falling from the tall scaffolding, it was nuts and they blew the roof off the house of the Bison!

Kinda funny, but the morning of that show I stood in line at the Fargo Dome for George Strait/Mindy McCready tickets while the Metallica trucks were rolling in. George Strait tickets in the morning and Metallica that night. Can't get any better!!

And Justice for All is my favorite, but Ride the Lightning is right up there with it, "Fade to Black" is probably my favorite song.

I can't hear "Master of Puppets" the song and NOT have the kidnapping scene from Old School playing in my head. They couldn't have picked a better song for that scene.
