"Destruction going viral" is a goofy sounding lyric, but honestly this song passed the expectations I had for it

Holy shit, that bridge actually jams hard. As much as I hate to admit it, James' voice has aged a lot better than Dave Mustaine. I'm actually more hyped for this than I have been for the last few Megadeth albums, which is hard for me to admit.

Something about the chorus kind of puts me off tbh. Don't really like that first guitar lead either.

But yeah after the second chorus this riffs fucking hard and we finally get to hear Kirk do another wah solo. Not as good as Hardwired and hoping this will be the worst song on the album. This track has sort of weakened my expectations.

This is way better than the first single. Has an interesting rhythm that sort-of-kind-of-but-not-really-but-kinda-if-you-squint reminds me of technical thrash, so that's cool.

This is the fourth track on the album. First time I can think of where a fourth song on a Metallica album wasn't a ballad.

Lars said there isn't gonna be a 'big Metallica ballad' on the album. Hopefully there's a half ballad/half heavy song akin to something like Until it Sleeps, though.

Both singles have grown on me the more I listen to them. Neither are mindblowing but both are a lot of fun to jam. If the whole album sounds this good I'll be happy.

I think they think now if they did a ballad everyone would call them a pussy sell-out band when they're trying to get back to a 'hardcore' image, when really everyone knows their best songs have always been their ballads

their ballads aren't their best bc of the actual ballad parts, though. Fade to Black is great bc of its instrumentals in the second half, same with One and Sanitarium.

Lars looks like an escaped psychiatric patient, and the song sounds like a B side from their old catalog but exceeded my incredibly low expectations I'll admit.
