Title: Death Magnetic
Post by: Sirix on September 12, 2008, 04:24:03 pm
anyone else give it a listen?

quite good.

way to go you old fuckers.

it's no "and justice for all" but it's certainly a solid set of songs.

I like it that they're releasing the entire album for Guitar Hero III and World Tour.

I've heard that the sound quality is borked.

They tried to go back to what they used to sound like...which didn;t work out too bad imo. The only song that is remotely skippable (as of now, that may change later) is Suicide & Redemption....but that is just me.

Its actually to my massive surprise a fairly solid album.

My only complaint would be that the bass is barely noticable and how the guitar sounds, the palm mutes should be chunkier.

I thought it was solid. It has some really good riffs and some awesome solos. My complaints:

-Vocals aren't strong enough (James lost some of his vocal edge)
-Production could be better (Sounds empty, or amateur sounding at times)
-Unforgiven III was underwhelming.
-They released probably the best song as the first single. (caught between that and Suicide & Redemption)

It isnt bad, but the only tracks I keep going back to are All Nightmare Long, Cyanide and U3. And the production is really too dry for my liking. Stiil, not a bad effort, better than I thought it would be.

Yeah, the Guitar Hero mix actually sounds better than the retail version if you ask me >_<

It's been proven to be higher quality than the retail version... Strange, huh?

What I've heard of this album did not excite me. I guess my metallica days are just all played out.

Boring. Metallica as usual.

Hm, qualified opinion would probably take on the qualities of actually liking Metallica in the first place.



Thats like you showing me a Destiny's Child album, and me saying it's shit, i don't like the band, so i can't delve much deeper into how their sound has developed, good or bad.


I am referring to Mister CrazyWater, i coulda quoted. But i didn't, wanna fight about?!

yes. :)

Probably you're right about it. Probably not. I reckon a fanboy would just aswell say "woo it rocks!".

It's not as if I only had listened to one of their songs and found it boring. I know what they sounded like on their earlier albums, and I know their newest album, and I can't make out much of a difference. Of course, their sound has changed a bit around here and that, but my essential point remains: I can't understand why Metallica are hailed to as kings of metal, except that they're old as an oak tree.

Many fanboys did not say "it rocks" to St.Anger though, though i do know of the folks you speak of, and they would say woo it rocks to beef flavoured ice lollies, you know this is true.

I am a huge metalhead and I just can't understand why so many people like Metallica in the first place. I can respect what they did for the genre and laying the groundwork for many bands to come, but honestly, the drumming is mediocre at best and the singing is horrible. I don't see why he feels the need to do the stupid shout vocals, the few songs that I actually like are the only ones he just sings like a normal person on. Everything I've heard from the new album and pretty much all their old songs just piss me off.

Yeah I don't know why he shouts when he can sing. They probably thought shouting = br00tal = good, but that doesn't always work out.

And a lot of the lyrics are really terrible, sometimes I was thinking "this makes almost as little sense as Dragonforce" XD

They release an album with crappy quality, and then complain about people downloading the songs instead D: Its just cheap imo and i wont support them, they dont need my support any ways so wth.

Don't know, Death Magnetic felt soulless for the most part. Not a single song that kept stuck in my head, except maybe Unforgiven III.

Fuck You, Metallica. You guys have more money than god at this point, so do us all a favor and retire. Learn to play golf, buy a fishing boat, do something. This contrived angst from a bunch of skull-jockeyed 45 year old millionaires is beyond tiresome. You used to be the best. You aren't anymore. In fact, you haven't been in a long, long time. Now you're like an ex-girlfriend who fucked my buddy and won't stop giving me the eyes. You're trying way too hard and it's totally not attractive. You just ain't what you used to be. Go away.
