Metallica - Death Magnetic

Just finished listening to the album, and I think it's phenomenal. It's like an awesome culmination of everything they've ever done, but drawing largely from the Ride/Puppets/Justice era, and I for one feel totally blown away by it. Every song is excellent. In fact, I think I may even be suffering from minor shock over how good it is.
This album was five years in the making, and in my opinion, Metallica haven't wasted a second of that time. They've absolutely nailed it with Death Magnetic. The kings of metal are well and truly back.

Oh and for those who may decide to whine about the fact that I downloaded it early, you'll be pleased to hear that I just went on Amazon and ordered the album.

So, anyone else heard it yet? What do you think?

It comes out in the U.S. on September 12th, so I'm still waiting.

Re: Metallica - Death Magnetic

I was a huge Metallica fan growing up, who knows how many time I've seen them in concert, but after St. Anger's shit, I pretty much wrote em off. Especially after the way Newsted got treated.

I haven't decided if I'll listen to this album yet.

I've downloaded Cyanide, The Day That Never Comes and My Apocalypse.

Awesome songs! With Day, I love how (like One) half way through it speeds up and proceeds to kick your ass.

You definitely should, given the strength of the three songs I listed above.

If you like old school Metallica, but weren't a fan of St Anger, then I'd urge you to give this one a listen. It's a monumental improvement over St Anger.

All that I've seen/heard is what they put on MySpace and Mission Metallica. However, I do like what I hear. The Old-School is back, baby.

And believe me, every song on this album is of the same (or even better in the case of All Nightmare Long and Broken, Beat and Scarred) calibre as those three tracks.

St. Anger was such a disappointment. It was worse than getting that toy you wanted all year on Christmas morning, only to discover that it wasn't much fun. I still want my $14 back for that worthless piece of ****.

Re: Metallica - Death Magnetic

I'm no Metallica fan. In fact only songs I really ever liked was One, The Unforgiven and Unforgiven Too.

Anyway this album has nothing special, no song stands out, not even one single. And Unforgiven 3 doesn't even sound like an Unforgiven song. The album sounds like something your average local metal band would produce.

Sorry Metallica, better luck next time but hey if the next album also sucks you can blame it on this album being leaked online and sue the Internet.

Re: Metallica - Death Magnetic

So far, I'm heard The Day that Never Comes, My Apocolypse, Unforgiven III, and Cyanide and I'm impressed so far. I really wanted to hear Unforgiven III when I first heard about it since I love the first two, and I was kind of surprised. This is an album I probably will get.

Re: Metallica - Death Magnetic

This shit is pretty frickin' awesome. But then, I'm the kind of Metallica fan that's had this preordered since before I heard a second of it.

I'll probably download it, but I think that the band are such big douchebags that I am not sure if I want to pay for it. This is coming from a guy who makes a point to buy music.

You think that's bad? I'm still pissed they got rid of Mustaine. I mean we got Megadeth out of it, but imagine how much better a lot of Metallica would have been if Mustaine wasnt kicked out.

I'm pretty much an old school Metallica fan (Black album onwards is pretty subpar), but for some reason I love St. Anger. I know everyone says it's crap, blah blah blah, but I enjoy it.

^^ I think Mustaine plus Het and Lars would have been too much ego for a single unit and would have led to a meltdown sooner than later.

I loved Metallica growing up but kind of lost the feeling after Napster and rehab and all that.
