One of the greatest thrash/speed metal bands ever to grace the earth, who have gained much criticism (some of which is understandable) over the suing of Napster for illegal downloads of their music and for the rather shite St. Anger album. Seeing as Metallica are my favourite band this is my attempt to be as unbiased as possible. Ok, I admit St. Anger was one of the worst albums ever made by a band of such quality. And maybe Load and ReLoad disappointed many Diehard Metal fans. But they were still good quality, but rather attempted to aim at a wider, more accessible market with a more rock sound. Megadeth and Metallica have shared many feuds over the last couple of decades, but there is no denying that Dave Mustaine is a far better guitarist than Kirk Hammett. On the flip side I think James is a better vocalist. If you combine the lyrics and vocals of Four Horsemen with the guitaring of Mechanix, the song would be truly amazing. It is a great shame that Dave left the band at such a promising stage because he in my opinion, would of had a major influence on the direction of Metallica. The band has been through a lot too, losing a member is not easy. Cliff was an amazing bassist and is sorely missed by many who idolised and loved him. I guess what I'm trying to say is that Metallica have become famous and people are annoyed because they are more mainstream but lets be honest even the last 3 albums have seldom been played on UK radio. I have only ever heard Enter Sandman and Nothing Else Matters played on radio..They aren't sellouts-just clever businessmen.
P.S Old school metal rules. New stuff sucks...
New style metal fan: Hey, have you heard Bullet For My Valentine's new album?
Me: O please fuck off little Emo kid, Metallica is where its at
