    Man have they ever gone downhill. Teaming up with Ja Suck is like the ultimate insult to the oldschool Metal rockers who were fans of Metallica's earlier stuff (they were really good right through Reload).

    people have been attacking them for quite a while. I always defended them till the whole napster deal, then I said screw it. they use to be cool, but they're in it 100% for the cash now. I mean after reload the few things they have done really sucked. Garage Inc. really didn't impress me at all.

    Actualy that would make them cold blooded american capitalist. See sharing of the music would be a communist ideal, but as 1. We dont live in a communism 2. its not a communist ideal to break laws or steal from other people (wich is piracy by definition). I would have to say that they where being just as greedy as the people who pirated music.

    Garage Inc. did impress me.
    But thats simply b'coz those songs were unarguably good and not metallica originals.

    I woke up with "Through the Never" in my head this morning. I have no idea why, because I haven't heard a Metallica song for months now.

    /me throws in his Metallica CD

    All that is, was and will be
    Universe much too big to see
    Time and space never ending
    Disturbing thoughts, questions pending
    Limitations of human understanding
    Too quick to criticize
    Obligation to survive
    We hunger to be alive

    Twisting turning through the never
    All that is, ever
    Ever was
    Will be ever
    Twisting
    Turning
    Through the never


    It's a good song. :)

    Ah well, let's just say the memory remains. (pun intended :p)

    Metallica.. metallica...
    The old metallica ruled.. still rules uhuu hu hu beavis :D
    ANyway, I really liked the black album. But the cd's following up to that one weren't all that... metallica turned into a bunch of softies if you ask me :hmm: and to quote the horse from the "ren and stimpy show":

    No sir, I don't like it.


    (And justice for all)

    Yeah, I can remember when they said they would NEVER do a video. Then one night on Headbanger's Ball....a video.
    I like their old stuff. I think I stopped listening after Injustice for all came out. Some new songs I like, but it's not the same.

    "Lashing out the action,
    returning the reaction,
    weak are ripped and torn away"

    L33t song!

    the fall of giants...

    Old skool Metallica is where it's at. I doubt I'll be rushing to HMV for their new stuff. Their handling of the Napster thing soured my view of them, not their viewpoint per se, but their handling of it.

    You know what though, this really doesnt surprise me. Seems like a lot of bands these days are just doing things way out of character, like teaming up with rappers. Its all about money and it is obvious that is whats goign on here. Even though I am still pissed off about this decision I still wont stop playing Master Of Puppets over and over and over and over and over and.......

    They've been around for over 20 years and changed...I think thats pretty natural. The energy they had in their youth has gone and they can't play thrash anymore.

    A couple of bands that changed within their lifetimes:

    *The Beatles - from the all smiling pop band to experimental.
    *Radiohead - Brit-pop to prog rock
    *The Rolling Stones - youths to zombies :D (how Keith Richards is still with us is beyond my understanding)

    Anyway, I think you get the idea.

    Its a shame that they've sold out and going "Wessside." Mind you, their bassist left because he's going deaf...how rock'n'roll :cool:

    I dont' think that's true...... he's been starting up a new band for a while now (the name completely escapes me at this moment :))


    My opinion: Metallica are my all-time fave, but if they're resorting to colaberations with shite artists just for a cash injection - they need to take a look at themselves.

    /me predicts the new album to have a lot of tracks like "I Disappear" on it..... which is bad :(
