I agree. I think every album is good. And think about it if all the albums were like justice or puppets Fans would just get bored of the same old routine. But besides that I have an inkling they might make another "old" style album B/c when I saw them in london they only played 2 St.Anger songs (Odd with a tour titled St. Anger tour) and the rest were old ones. With more off kill 'em all than St.anger. Oh and new sales records have been posted on encylopedia metallica.com (since they re-released their back catalog earlier this year) and Live sh*** binge and purge has sold 15 million worldwide 1 million more than the black album (14 million)

by the way, is Cunning Stunts good? I have Cliff em All and i think its great (besides the bad quality at some points).
cunning stunts is excellent and they play a good range of there stuff, very well produced and quite glossy so if ur into the raw production sound it might b a bit 2 polished but i think its excellent, and i got it (both discs) for £13 at hmv (in the uK)

Indeed. They did. If it wasn't from St *****, it would pwn.

kirk_wylde
12-30-2003, 03:55 PM
Yeah It seems theyve started rehashing quite alot of St. anger material eg.
St. anger- main riff moved around a bit and structure rearanged slightly
Frantic- more thrashy and has a short fast solo
Dirty window- again more thrasy and has a full blown 30/40 sec hammet solo

Thats all I know so far

You'd probably have to order it. I've seen it in a couple of Amazon Zshops. You can also get it from the Metallica shop.

Oh yeah, I often wondered this aswell.....how come Dave Mustaine was credited for the writing of The Four Horsemen on Kill 'Em All, but neglected to leave the names of James and Lars from the creditation of Mechanix from Killing Is My Business.....

Perhaps because he played it slightly differently....I don't know.

did anybody catch the FOX New Years Metallica gig? I didn't get to watch it since I was out but I heard they played 'The Unnamed Feeling.'

Some fans at metallica's official board were complaining that they cut Metallica off half-way through their song but I'm guessing that's because of time constraints and plus The Unnamed Feelings i like 8 minutes long or something, so they showed 4 minutes of the song, compared to the other artists who performed on that show, it was fair.

Metallicat
01-05-2004, 10:58 AM
my cousin owns the S&M dvd. (which I should buy) and he said that Jaymz also played the solo in outlaw torn. Not sure if it can be considered as a solo but it's cool as hell nonetheless :cool:

FrailandBedazzled1979
01-06-2004, 05:03 AM
James has his lead moments in some songs like "master", "nothing else matters" "wiskey in the jar" "orion" and a few others here and there, i think he should have taken more time to learn how to be a lead player when he was younger and could have contributed more to that like Mustaine did in Megadeth, rather than have Kirk as "the only lead player" of the two guitarits, no reason to be strickly a rhythem player.

Coolidge
01-06-2004, 08:44 AM
People tell me to keep playing lead, but I'd just rather stick to rhythm. Leads are cool to mess around with every once in a while, but I still love to just sit there and throw out some great crunch. Once I get the crunch that James had on A Year and a Half in the Life of Metallica, I'll be the happiest man alive. When he's playing that baritone guitar to get the crunch sound on Sad But True, I just can't help but get a little giddy and start laughing. Soooo much crunch.

NailHead
01-06-2004, 09:03 AM
The Problem with playing lead is that you've got to kind of focus more on the drums and bass than the singing. You've gotta help keep the rhythem, and you have more of a likely hood of messing up and screwing a performance. For me, in the long run, I have to play rhythm because I sing and playing lead just an't working if you sing in a band too. But I can rip out a pretty good solo if I want in a performance.

2.) If there was a second S&M what would your dream list of songs consist of?
mine
1. ecstacy of gold(started like that in the first one liked it alot)
2. Orion
3. Harvester of Sorrow
4. To live is to die
5. My friend of misery
6. Unforgiven
7. the four horsemen
8. Low man's lyric
9. Ride the Lightning
10. Unforgiven II
12. St Anger(weird I know I would just like to hear it)
13. Astronomy (I know its a cover)
14 Seek and destroy
15. One( I know its been done *remember dream set list muah ha ha)
16. Call of Ktulu
17. Leper Messiah
18. Fade to Black ( Great way to end the concert eh...?)

Load was a poor album,only Ain't My Bitch ,leeding Me and Outlaw Torn were any good,and the latter sounded better on S&M.They won't make another album like Puppets but at least theyt're rediscovering what made them special in the first place.

The only reason they went after Napster is because they stole a song from them that wasn't finished, I Disappear I think...that's why they went after them. Lars even said he doesn't care, as long as the song is finished and you get the full quality. And what the hell are you doing in the Metallica thread anyways, if you don't like metallica? Dumba$$

this, incase you didn't read back, was referring to Kill 'Em All. Not my personal favorite, but still a good album. They were releasing it underground, it was probably recorded live then polished up in a studio later. They did just release the whole album was recorded on a tape recorder anyways. No way a lazy effort.

The only reason they went after Napster is because they stole a song from them that wasn't finished, I Disappear I think...that's why they went after them. Lars even said he doesn't care, as long as the song is finished and you get the full quality. And what the hell are you doing in the Metallica thread anyways, if you don't like metallica? Dumba$$

Yeah it was 'I Dissapear'...

AND...because people can just download band's songs without even buyin the cd. how's a band that is just starting out supposed to make money if nobody buys their cd and just downloads all their songs??? :confused:

As the resident Metallica expert, I don't want to see another album. Its a shame, and I love the band to death, but its for the best. If they kick out Bob Cock and do the album that the Black Album was supposed to be, cool, but if not then I don't want to hear it.

if the don't come out with atleast one last cd i'll be pissed. all i ask for is one more. they can't go out with st. anger they have to go out with a big bang!

So the general agreement is the best Metallica album is Kill 'Em All. But which do you like more...Master of Puppets, or Ride the Lightning? I personally like Master of Puppets more, but they both own.

When did everyone agree on that?

Ride the lightning is my favourite metallica album

this, incase you didn't read back, was referring to Kill 'Em All. Not my personal favorite, but still a good album. They were releasing it underground, it was probably recorded live then polished up in a studio later. They did just release the whole album was recorded on a tape recorder anyways. No way a lazy effort.

Believe me, i know plenty about the band...i used to be obsessed when them when i was younger, but if you look at alot of bands first records...it usually is a defining point for the band and argubly thier best work (led zeppelin, black sabbath, the rolling stones) and Kill'em all was constantly being pushed to the bottom of the list in terms of song writing, production, and overall sound of the band.

f*ck man i haven't posted on here for soooo long. my last post was about the gigs they did on the 19th and 20th of Dec. ah well.

St. Anger is quite a good album, its a change tho. Yeh lack of solos but with Metallica, they embody the whole aspect of Metal and i suppose they were expanding the ideas with a different concept of Metal, more nu-metal. The only thing i don't like is the inconsistency of the album, you'll get a few good songs, then a couple that suck, then another good one, then a bad one and so on.

Like it was said at MTV Icon = 'Black Sabbath created metal, Metallica perfected it'.
Really, Metallica represents the metal genre and i suppose they were spreading their influence into other regions/types of metal. well, you may think differently but thats the way i view it. :cool:

I'll be at their concert at the music bowl in Melbourne on the 28th. I can't ****in wait!!!!
As for the bassist topic-

Jason Newstead- I think Jason had ****loads of melody. He was so under-rated. He improvised with the songs, and did have a lot of good solos.

Rob Trujillo- So far, all that i have seen, is that Rob plays the same as the album recording onstage, which has pros and (mostly) cons. But he does look cool onstage though.

These are just my opinions and i'm sure lots of people will beg to differ.
If anyone could tell me the setlist for Australia, it would be greatly appreciated.

The people that only like metallica for St.Anger and diss metallica's old stuff which rocks the most.

Haven't visited this thread in a while...

Anyways....I'm here to post more thoughts.

Kill Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets. I just named 3 of Metallica's FIRST original full length albums. Loved by millions of people all over the world. Load, Re-Load, St. Anger. Three of Metallica's latest works. Nobody is saying to hold these latter 3 and put them in high regard as the first 3, but fact is...this is the SAME band (essentially).
What does a band want to achieve? They put emotions into music, fans latched on to that. They vent through their music, fans love the way the do it.
They did that with Kill Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master of Puppets. They also did that with Load, Re-Load, and St. Anger, yet fans don't love it because now the band doesn't "vent" about the same things in the same manners. In other words; different songwriting.
St. Anger - as an album, lyrically without repitiousness, quite good. Riffs? Great. Solos? Non existent, but thats the main weakness you could say.
ANYTHING ELSE......ANYTHING.....should be blamed on production. Production can make or break a bands album. It can throw bands into the spotlight, or have the world hate them for the album they put out.
Metallica put so much trust into Bob Rock, it just felt comfortable working with him after "Metallica" aka "The Black Album".
MAJORITY of fans admit that from "The Black Album" onwards, they saw Metallica declining and did not enjoy the latest albums as much as the previous four. Why? Again..I say production.
This can be argued to no end...

On a different note: Anyone seen the video for "The Unnamed Feeling"? I really enjoy the video, and the visuals/camera-work is great. Also one of my favorite St. Anger tracks.

Sadly.....I can't really fathom another record from Metallica......

if they do make one.....I know they can't really get much (dare I say) worse than they have gotten.....not to say they are bad, just to say that they have been blinded by Bob Rock.

If I ever get the chance to meet any of them.....I will beg them to drop Bob Rock...YOU SHOULD TOO! hah.

ThrashMaster27
01-13-2004, 02:32 AM
Every band Bob Rock works with he makes them more commercially sounding. He made Metallica lose there Raw Thrash feel when he produced the Black Album, although ...AJFA was bordering on Hard Rock/Metal. Also did the same thing with Motley Crue when producing Dr. Feelgood. Any other bands he messed up?

Yes I can, and I will.
If you look at metallica's first album "kill em all" you will see that all the songs where written by Dave Mustaine. Now what manny people don't know is that metallica was already verry famous at the year 1983 cause of the release of that same album. They where not poppulair in the mainstream but in the underground metal scene, this is where it all begon. So if you look at it that way you'll see that the succes of mettalica begon with dave mustaine's lyrics that they've ussed. Even the song "the call of khulu" was written by dave mustaine (witch metallica denies, but hey :s ). SO, if metallica didn't used dave's songs, they might be unknow if you get my point. All I'm trying to say is, that if metallica didn't used dave's songs, megadeth would have used then probaly and then megadeth would be as populair as metallica, I hope you guy understand what I'm trying to say. Ok, metallica has some great songs but they are few. If you wanna hear some old skool trash metal you sould try megadeth cause they didn't loose the feeling of real trash metal ( only risk sucks, but dave mustaine says that to so :) ) thats it, I think?? :)

Megadeth only used 1 song that metallica already head and that song is called the mechanix, by metallica it's called the four horsemen. I think the megadeth version is way better and a whole lotta faster. But thats just me

guitarded_chuck
01-15-2004, 09:58 AM
He didn't write every song on Kill 'em All either. He helped co-write them, but he never wrote any of the songs by himself. Looking at interviews of the band after they kicked out Dave, they said he never really contributed as much as he should have. "Back then we only had the three of us writing and contributing, now we have all four, and we are better than ever." - James, 1984.

You sir, are an idiot.

Firstly the songs were co-written with Dave Mustaine, so I don't know why you say that. He wrote 4 song from Kill 'Em All.....there's 10 songs on the album. He wrote 2 from Ride The Lightning.....and Metallica don't deny he wrote Call of Ktulu you stupid plank, they credit him for it. The song they denied he wrote was Leper Messiah. If you had these albums you might notice that they credit him where credit is due.

Further more Megadeth stopped being *Thrash* in 1992 when Countdown To Extinction came out.

Please, please get your facts straight before you open your mouth, as you know absolutely NOTHING.

You call people not real music fans for listening to Metallica, yet then you claim you know more about them than everyone. The fact that I don't live in America would be a main reason I don't know about their 'first' demo Power Metal. I do know that the first official one to be released was No Life 'Til Leather and their first song is on Metal Massacre Vol.1

You resorted to using petty insults when you don't know the first thing about what you are saying. You also claim to have seen the 'First' Megadeth and Metallica concerts which would have gone on around 1983-1985, which would make you around 35-40 depending on when you saw them. I can't believe that a 40 year old would say such stupid things, unless they were Retarded......which is a possibility for you.

You also claim to know a lot about Dave Mustaine and his 'Stint' in Metallica.....I'm a big Fan of Dave and I evidently know more about him than you. So yeah, I hope you don't return to these forums.

Yes I can, and I will.
If you look at metallica's first album "kill em all" you will see that all the songs where written by Dave Mustaine.

okay, i retract my old statement. Granted that Mustaine did help write a few songs on the album, but not all. And he didn't write them alone.

as much as i love metallica, i only just downloaded Orion, as i thought previously that To Live Is To Die was their only instrumental song....but orion is that plus more. IMO it has excellent guitar playing, drumming in time, and the bass is pretty sweet around the 4-5minute mark. Anyone else think this song is a splendid instrumental?

don't worry, i thought To Live Is To Die was thier only instrumental till I got Master of Puppets. You find things out when you buy the albums though. So try that sir, not to diss ya or anything. Happy listening. :cool: :cool:

What do you think is the most god-awfully dark and depressing Metallica song. Personally, I find it to be Fade to Black or One, because if you read the lyrics, it sounds like James is really contimplating suicide. Or he was just really sad and that's how he felt, either way, I want your opinions.

I saw Metallica live for Aucklands Big Day Out a few days ago and they did a great show. They played all their classics (Master of Puppets, Battery, One, Nothing Else Matters etc) and only two songs off St Anger. It was an impresive show and highly raised my opinion of Metallica :thumb:

01-20-2004, 04:39 PM

Even the 3 St Anger songs were done really well- Frantic and Dirty Window now have solos! This was the setlist--

Blackened
Creeping Death ( Kick *** solo at end by Kirk)
Harvester Of Sorrow
Sanitarium
Bass Solo
For Whom The Bell Tolls
Frantic

Dirty Window
Seek and Destroy

i'm sure kirk helped with the solos, but i wouldn't be suprised if James did about half of them, James probably gave him a good rythem and Kirk worked off of that. That's just what I think though. We may never know.

ffs for the last time KIRK WRITES THE SOLOS. Im watching the making of the black album right now. He writes them, sends them to lars and james and bob, who either chop it up or tell him to redo certain parts of it. It starts out kirks solo, but james and lars mould it to the song. Thats why he doesnt get writing creds.

first, i'm sure that Kirk writes it. I'm saying that James writes some too, not as many but I'm sure at least one of those is his. Second, I said that James comes up with a good rythem most likely, and then Kirk can build off that and expand into a wicked solo and then, like you said, he sends it on to the others and they work with it. Personally, I want to hear some of Kirk's stuff before they rip it up and change it and stuff.

P.S.
What's this I heard about Lars helping in the lyrical process too, I thought James did that alone and stuff.

i don't know if you noticed, dude, but the lyrics in St. Anger were way too repetitive. Last time I checked, Metallica never did that, ever. Lets all be honest with ourselves. Metallica didn't give 100% like they always do with St. Anger. Bob Rock screwed up, Newstead screwed up (cause he left for Voivod, god dammit!) Hetfield screwed up by making it all too simple. St Anger was rushed. No doubt about it. The only good song on the record was The Unnamed Feeling, and it still has room for improvement. Case ****ing closed. :smash:

There was a lot of ****ed up **** going on when they made it, james off to rehab, new bassist, in-fighting and that is evident in the songs. They wanted to do something different, no matter what small minded f*cks like you thought. It wasnt up to par but f*ck, the last album they wrote was back in like 1994/5 (reload was largely written around the time of load, it was originally supposed to be a double cd release). Thats a long time out of the studio. This album was necessary, if nothing else it has resulted in metallica being stronger than ever live and as a band, rob fits in so well its not funny. Their next album well be brilliant, i guarrantee it.

Man In Reno

Not to start a flame war but....


This implied a personal, emotional vent. However, Hetfield can only convey feeling through the persona of the implied "invisible kid" who cowers from parents and rejection in every song, mirrored in the bedrooms of their audience. Such juvenile confessionals as, "I hurt inside/ I hide inside/ But I'll show you," and, "Mama, why's it rainin' in my room," sound ridiculous coming from the mouth of a 40 year-old man. Is this how he talks to his shrink?

Emo bands found the simple process of merely moving from quiet to loud to be breathtaking. They wrote songs where beauty and melody was assumed on the count of clean guitar and picking chords, despite the fact that the two guitars had no knowledge of each other. In Metallica's case, the result was somehow worse for sounding so calculated and plotted in ProTools. ProTools had never been metal. ProTools never snorted ants up his FireWire from the side of the pool while urinating down a woman's dress. ProTools never inserted the sound of a chainsaw into the opening of "Black Metal" off the album Black Metal. ProTools never burned churches in Norway. And yet, ProTools had a major hand in assembling both "American Life" and "Frantic".


Metallica was over after The Black album. Sorry folks.

No, it says on the album inlay "Recorded and Mixed at Music America" and unless that'a a live venue, it's not likely it's live. I always thought it was Lars saying the Bass Solo bit.....don't know why.

To answer, I love saying case closed. It's a good way to end an argument. That, and I love hitting things with a hammer. Second, I'm not against a band trying new things, but sometimes those new things don't sound good at all. Besides, they took 6 months in the studio, compared to the usual year.
