Seriously... I LOVE their instrumentals, some of my favorite songs ever, they all have this relaxing uplifting kind of medieval type feel. (see the acoustic riffs in To Live is to Die, or the intro to The One) And all the heavy riffs in the instrumentals are heavy and epic as shit!

Their thrash, even their "classic" thrash (obviously not talking about their modern shite) just doesn't hold a candle in terms of quality IMO. I mean, a lot of it is decent, but it doesn't have anywhere near the same emotional impact, at least on me. I'm guessing it's not just me though because I've heard a lot of people saying their favorites were all the instrumentals too.

I would've loved to see a whole album of Orion-style music.

Ya, it's Hetfield's singing and lyrics that make the songs.
the rest are just extras.

He will be missed.

I wish they would have stayed the same after the black album rather than try to appeal to more people.

Uhhhh... no? Guitar/bass are very important in Metallica songs. Drums? Well, Lars sucks at drums but it's still fairly essential.

If you dont like Metallica dont talk about em or listen to their music. Your just like all the other people who say other bands are shit cuz you dont like em. If you dont like something dont even think about it.

EDIT: I really dont understand why people say Lars sucks at drums. Hes ok and fits in with the band. If Lars wasnt there to even start Metallica we might not even be talking about this.

I used to love them, but now Call of Ktulu is the only thing they've done I listen to. Even Orion is overrated as shit IMO.

What an utterly ridiculous idea. Why shouldn't people state their opinion if it's relevant? Especially if someone's specifically asked for it, like in this thread.

And besides, if I read that correctly, he likes Metallica's thrash stuff. Which is most of their stuff.

Lol he said they=trash, and TS didnt ask if you liked em or not. He ask if they should have been an instrumental band. If you dont like someones music why even come into this thread? You remember all those threads like, Things Guitarists Hate, and Stupidest comments about music? Alot of the replies were about people saying certain bands or genres suck, and most of those people only said that because they dont like it. Just because to you dont like it doesnt mean it sucks does it? What if some guy who only listens to (insert genre here) said your music sucked just because he didnt like it?

and no, I like Metallica the way they are. They're not my favorite band, but I wouldn't want them to change or anything.

"Thrash" is often misspelled as "trash", and makes more sense in this context. I'm assuming that's what he meant.

And yes, obviously people only say it sucks because they don't like it. That's what it means when you say something sucks. If someone said my music sucked because they didn't like it, I'd probably ask why they thought that. If they said "because I only listen to (insert genre here)", I'd say "to each his own" and get on with my day.

TBH I never understand why some people get so offended by this.

I actually am a huge Metallica fan, and I'm not implying they are shit, it's just a shame they didn't stick to trash because that is what they do best.(Orion is an exception in my opinion)

O and they wanted to fire Lars, only reason he still is in the band is because Cliff died just before they wanted to fire him.
And yes he is a bad drummer, not the worst or total crap. But not a good drummer at all. If he fits in with the band is an opinion.

I disagree with this post completely. Except for the "don't listen to bands you don't like" part. That was some good advice.

Lars Ulrich is meh.

Megadeth is vastly superior to Metallica.

Funny though, I put on "Kill em All" last night for the first time in aages. Still a great listen.

It'd be better if Lars was the vocalist.

I saw the concert where each band member "switched" instruments.

Trust me, It would be awesome.

Metallica was a bad band. Anything they contributed to music was negative. I can't really see why anyone would enjoy listening to their music.

WHAT?!?! Negative? Please Explain. Ride The Lightning was a great album and so was AJFA. Kill em All was good too and MOP. Black Album, Load and Re-Load is alright. Everything else was meh. But they are still good. Kirk just needs to stop with the Wah and they would be perfect.

EDIT: And who knows what Dave Mustaine would doing right now if they never happened.
