    I hear it's pretty good, reminscent of the black album. I won't buy it since I think they're a bunch of douchebags. I'll just wait until I can get someone to burn me a copy.

    I bought "The Day That Never Comes" on iTunes.

    The jam at the end reminds me of Kill 'Em All.

    Manifold, you strike me as a Tokio Hotel fan anyway.

    Im going to download it. Fuck metallica. I guarantee it's no better than load (of shit)

    You want a real metal band whose balls have not tarnished with age? pick up Slayer's latest album.

    Yeah, how is "reminiscent of the Black album" supposed to be enticing?

    The Black Album is one of their best. THAT is where the line is drawn, IMO. I don't own anything they've done after that.

    still digesting it. listened to the album 4 times this weekend. Im trying real hard not to hold their last 10 years against them. riffs seem a bit too schizophrenic in an open attempt to recapture the original magic. There are some pretty good parts though. The tone of the guitars is grittier than Load but less overdriven than anything up to Justice. I'd say it's a solid 7.5 out of 10 so far.

    I agree. Even though with the Black Album it was clear they were trying to go more mainstream (i.e "sell out" :eek:), it was and still is a great album.

    Metallica hasn't put out a good album since And Justice For All.

    After that the Black album came out. What a commercial piece of crap that was. That album was the beginning of the end.

    Since then it's been one mainstream turd after the other. Oh how I long for the hard, heavy, old-school Metallica. Kill Em All, Ride the Lightning, And Justice for All and their best one, Master of Puppets. Those were masterpieces. The Black album started the circling of the drain in the toilet.

    I did pick up the new Slipknot CD. Highly reccomend it.
