          Indeed fuck charity

          It's the fucking black album, it's the McDonald's plain cheeseburger of metal who cares?

          I mean it sounds like utter bullshit but If all profits go to charity like it says, I hope it sells a billion units.

            I bet it was Lars Idea… Growing up I cherished Metallica, I was the only one kid in school with long hair with Metallica t shirt and got chased by others to cut my hair… I used to draw Het with explorer… I worshipped Metallica… They were the ones for me…. And now they are shiting on that kid… By doing shit like this….

              How is creating a tribute album that shows that despite them being "extreme" in their early days, they have pretty much universal appeal. Then donating any profits from that to charity, shitting on any of that?

                I have nothing against donating, butchering classic songs, is shiting on it. I only made to 1 min I had to tun it off… There is million ways to make that happen without doing what they done to those songs.


                If you like it,buy all means buy extra copies

                  How old are you dude? Remember being like you years ago but now being 37 years old, having a mortgage, and realizing that dudes in bands are just normal assholes and I just sort of lost that "hero worship". That shit seems so juvenile now.

                    Im 38 , Im not like that now that was my school days in 90s, I dont worship anyone these days.

                    That been said, I do want them to make thrash again but most likely they wont.

                      I won't be buying this. I made it 50 seconds and that was enough.

                      I think it's good that they created it and will be donating money to charity, but I'm really only interested in the Metallica versions of the songs.

                      Now this is just my opinion - I love it when Metallica covers other band's songs. I think they sound great & I can't think of one I don't like. However, when these other artists are covering Metallica's songs- well, whatever I heard sounds like crap.

                        If this isnt thrash than I dont know what is. Maybe its the production that is throwing you off but that song is thrash indeed. Check out how others recorded it in vein of their old albums...

                          and I guess you havnt heard this one either...

                          And Im not riding Metallica's nuts or anything. Ive done my fair share of "Metalla-bashing" but I also try to be objective.

                            I just listened to this for the first time, and while it didn't start bad (the main riff is cool), it didn't really catch me - until the lead at the ~3:55 mark starts, this really gave me something. Too bad that these are 50 seconds in a 7 minute song only. I really hoped they would make more out of it.
                            Still, a lot better than i anticiapted this would be.

                                Yeah... no thanks. But, that shouldn't be a surprise as most of us are hardly the target audience for this. For me, the Metallica I revered in High School died with Cliff Burton. His legacy lived on for several albums, and they still cite his song writing style as a major influence, but they would be an entirely different band if he was still alive.

                                Like Ram, I was the biggest Metallica fan in my school, had tons of other kids rag on me for it, but didn't care. I remember skipping school the day Master of Puppets came out so we could grab a copy and go listen to it on hard repeat for hours at my buddy Chris' house. Then camping out at the Capital Center to get tickets when they came with Ozzy to support that masterpiece. Then, Cliff died and everything changed... For me, the Black album is the metal equivalent of an old man-eating tiger with all his teeth pulled out. Sure, he's still powerful and due respect, but the primal awe of what made it a force of nature was gone.

                                Thankfully, I still have an unmolested copy of Ride The Lightning.

                                As for their new "thrash" stuff, it just sounds like they no longer have that, for lack of a non-cliche, 'eye of the tiger'. They got rich, lost what they had that got them there in the first place and now they're churning out shadows of what made them cool in the first place. Listen to the "Spit out the Bone" then "Fight Fire With Fire" back to back and you can hear the aggression fall off, big time. And, they can't blame it on age, because plenty of bands from back in the day still have "IT", whereas Metallica lost it back in the mid 90s. (Just listen to new Napalm Death for example).

                                Too bad this doesn't at least feature covers by Gojira, Opeth, Creeping Death and maybe, say Avatar or some of the modern metal. But, then it would lose the 'sell out/mainstream/look at us we transcended mere metal' appeal this has...

                                Don't expect much, it's not like I'm a Rocket Surgeon...

                                  60yo millionaires write different songs than 18yo teens that are angry because they do not have a future (or 50yo grindcore guys, that can barely survive, despite working their asses off).

                                    Totally. And, good for them for getting rich. But, when you ditch the date that brung ya to the dance, don't expect anything but vitriol from said date.

                                      This, they did their time, let them enjoy themselves. If they tried to go back to "real thrash" it would be fucking terrible unless hetfield fired lars and kirk.

                                        I've heard almost everything they have released. Death magnetic was a step in the right direction, I did hear songs written in vain of old songs. Hardwire and Atlas rise has good riffs and I really like some sections of the song, it reminds me of their glory days. Hearing Hardwire with an older tone was really cool, especially with Ride the lightning and Master of Puppets.Het can write killer riffs and I'm sure he can write badass thrash but they won't because they rather write money maker songs than the headbanger ones.
                                        Also, I don't think they want to play thrash anymore.

                                        Testament, Exodus, Overkill, still make fast and brutal thrash, I look forward to Exodus's new album.


                                        This is the Metallica I like.

                                          I actually belive that they are putting out exactly the songs they want to do. Because frankly - when i listen to the songs posted here, i would not at all rate them to be "money maker" songs. Quite contrary - if this would be put out by any other band but Metallica, this wouldn even get 1k streams on youtube. But there is no Nothing Else Matters or One...there was Unforgiven 3 i think on DM? But other than that, there is no "trimmed to be a hit" song on the newer records.

                                            I have all the Metallica CDs up to the black album all on CD. I even have the Kill 'Em All with Blitzkreig and Am I Evil included as well as a rare Jump In the Fire/Creeping Death CD. Im fine with those. I never got into anything after that. I never even bothered with anything rereleased, remastered or anything else.

                                              yea, that could be true, they always have done what they wanted and they still do what they want.

                                                Something I tend to forget when thinking about new Metallica stuff is the songs I loved were written by the mixture of Cliff Burton, James Hetfield, Dave Mustaine and Kirk Hammett. That well of inspiration ran out after ...Justice. Hetfield and Hammett can still write cool riffs and solos and whatnot, but without the Burton and, to a lesser extent, Mustaine ingredients of course it isn't going to sound the same. They were literally the all-star thrash band before such things existed.
