San Francisco metal band formed in the early 80's. Their four albums from the 80's are class, and incidentally their best known offerings. However the material released post-1991 is of curiously low standard with the occasional great track.
In 2002 (or was it 03?) they released St. Anger, an album which shocked us again at how low they could go. They completely removed the guitar solo (a vital part of the heavy metal song) from all the songs. This resulted in their worst album and their grouping with nu-metal.
One shouldn't forget, however, that their 80's albums are some of the best from that decade, including great tracks like Fade To Black, Sanitarium, One, Ride The Lightning, Battery, The Four Horsemen, Master Of Puppets.
Me: Man, you seen that Metallica DVD?
Friend: With the symphony? Yeah, that was cool, pity James's voice has gone down the drain.
1. Emo band from Quebec, whiners really. Every song is about being so misunderstood and depressed. I could see writing one or two songs on the subject but these assholes drag it out into an entire career.
Emo in general takes little to no talent to perform, as the majority of what emo stands for is an image of desperateness (a desperate need to have one's ass kicked). Tight jeans, sweaters, hair that hangs at an angle over your face, YOU'RE HALFWAY THERE!
Now add three power chords and a whiny male singer, AND YOU'RE DONE! You can now make a platinum album under the guise of the musician! But seriously, you should be ashamed of yourself.
If anyone deserves to listen to this bilge, it's convicts currently serving life sentences. Wait, what am I saying?! The only people who deserve this trash are the people who created it. No one else is THAT guilty.
