if that was true, and popular=good, then that would mean that hannah montana and britney spears are the best bands ever. popular DOES NOT equal good.


I never said that Metallica was good because they are popular. You are saying that. I only said that Metallica is a good band. In other words, their music is great.

Boycott Metallica? They'll sure sell a few million copy...if you don't like don't buy it, but don't try to build up a team of boycott fans...I'm an huge fan of Metallica, and the best album for me is the Black album...so even if I don't prefer the trash era I'm a fan, a big fan!

The funny thing is that Load, reLoad and St. Anger would be fantastic albums, if they werent Metallica. But the fact that it is Metallica, and NOT trash makes the die hard fans say its shit. Personaly i only like a few songs from Load / Reload and TBA, but i love all the early albums, and St. Anger. After all, St. Anger is REAL heavy metal, where the early albums are thrash metal. wink.gif


True. If it was another band that had come out and released Load and followed up with Reload, they would be a huge band in their own right I guarantee you.

Boycott one of the biggest bands in the world to try to punish them... hmmmmm
That doesnt add up in my mind.

Thats just like trying to boycott fuel companies.

even if you got 1000 people to do it, the sheer mass and need for the oil market would outweigh it far too much.

And i dont really see a point in it, I have liked all three songs ive heard from death magnetic, (Cyanide, The day that never comes, and My Apocolypse) Im buying the album the day it comes out b/c those three songs are in my oppinion the best ive heard since black album, but thats all a matter of taste, you know?

I dont think this boycott thing is very mature either, you bought St. Anger and you were disappointed, its your fault for spending the money, not Metallica's.

screw it i'm feeling antagonistic so here what i really think about metallica....

OVERRATED and UNDESERVING people who have always played music that has been extremely derivative of what has gone before and whose main creative forces were Dave Mustaine and the fantastic CLiff Burton if you buy death magnetic more fool you because there is far better and more deserving bands out there who need some attention not a band who release something as appauling as St Anger,


I beg to differ with alot of people here (and not because of the style of the music) both load and reload were awful mixed bag albums (particularly reload!) if you want to listen to good alt rock there are far better examples of this from many bands but to name a couple try Alter Bridge and Corrosion of Conformity, and St Anger was an abysmal nu-metal release so if you want to listen to some nu-metal try korn selftitled instead.


there i said it

Alex, two things:

1. Metallica created amazing albums after Dave and Cliff were gone.
2. With all due respect, who are you to say what is good or bad? Those are YOUR opinions man. We can talk about why you liked or disliked Metallica's last three albums, but you just cannot say that an album or band is not good only because you think so. I personally liked Load and Reload, so speak for yourself.

well, after all everybody on this planet has his own taste in music, if you like Metallica, listen to them and have fun, if not, well, there are one or two other bands on this planet that you could check out I guess, so no need for flaming and bashing.

I agree that St. Anger was pretty bad overall, though I like a couple songs on it. If you want MY opinion, alter bridge is a horrible band born from the ashes of a horrible band, though CoC is okay (and from my area smile.gif). In my opinion, neither band has done anything better than Load.

Also I'd have to agree with Juan and say that while I think Mustaine is an awesome artist and Cliff was one of the best bassists of all time, Metallica has definitely proven themselves beyond Cliff and especially Mustaine.

Even if you want to argue that Metallica has been derivative their whole career (which I disagree on), they've certainly perfected and mastered what came before and turned it into their own, which is something the majority of bands out there can't claim.

Is it so hard to understand that some people do like Metallica, and what is more, they are looking forward to listening AND after that, judging the new album? I am sure that there are better albums out there than the upcoming one, but still I am waiting for the chance to listen the whole material, and hope that I will find some stuff that would satisfy me.

The part about Mustaine and Burton makes me wonder do we have one of the "uber" Megadeth fan here? There was a topic about Metallica vs Megadeth fanboys behavior, and the conclusions were quite obvious... --> get a life...

I like all metallica albums exept S&M and I`m probably the only one digging the St.Anger album too. Boycott their new album is the last thing I will do. After listening to audio samples of all 10 tracks on Death Magnetic I`m pretty shure I`ll by the album. And I totaly agree with Marcus, there is no need for bashing! We have all our own taste in music.

Peace out!

So I'd hate to promote this but, Death Magnetic has been leaked (finally haha).

I could honestly say that I am pleasantly surprised by how decent the album is. Its not bad at all, and you all know how I feel about the beloved Thrash Metal. Its not thrash by any means, but a few thrashing moments here and there, quite sloppy actually. I'd say its much better than Black Album, much more intricate, complex, less whiny, more heavy metal, quite predictable at most times, but decent nonetheless. The 2 songs that legally came out was actually the weakest of all. I'll just let you guys simmer this opinion down, and hear for yourself.

You know whats a more shocking news, Metallica is actually happy the album was leaked.

...Yep, It's good....wow. Some amazing heavy music, some moments are explosively brutal.

This stuff is going to sound crushing live.

Just checked out this topic... There is no need to boycott the Tallica, if the album is cool, why not buy it? If the album is bad, than it doesn't deserved to be bought, and that is good enough boycott for me. smile.gif

Metallica have never been any good. They started as an average at best thrash band and just went downhill.

I bought many albums... and Death Magnetic is the best for me in many many years.
The album is rocksolid trash, love Hetfield's voice. They are just too good those old farts...
I can't stop listening to it... weeeehaaaa....

One thing, Trujillo should've raised the bass level before mixdown and master but... still cool.
