just gonna rant for a sec, k

am i srsly the only one that enjoys st anger? i love the snare and drum sounds Lars used for that album. it was perfect. that steel ring that the snare gives off fits perfectly with how gritty the album sounds. thats the ****ing point.

with this re-record, the actual snare sound makes the song sound flat and dull. its an angry **** everything album its not supposed to sound like dream theater pretty. idk. this killed the essence of the album props on his voice tho

st anger was the first album that I finally decided I shouldn't agree to everything my mate who introduced me to rock/metal said about music and form my own opinions for once. I got it on release listened to it a few days enjoying it then lent it to him to listen, he hated it completely. I mean yeah after the "new album" rush was over it was meh but I enjoyed it for a bit as it was quite fun (ignoring that snare, lol) and still stand by the point that if it was released by anyone else it'd be considered a decent enough album, but people were hyping it to be metallica's come back, so of course it flopped.

he's still into lamb of god and korn (!) and got into a7x and such and I actually started exploring other stuff beyond what he was going on about and got properly into metal and hardcore and looking back now I think it worked out for the best that I liked st.anger.
O.K.

and really its not a great great album. it's just not as bad and people make it out to be and most of that stems from the fact that it's Metallica. they could probably release an album that is as good if not better than AJFA or master of puppets and people would still rag on it

i still stand by the snare though. its loud and ringy and i love how it sounds

Yeah I also don't hate St. Anger. Sure it's not great but it's fine for what it is. It's actually the very first CD I purchased myself. I wasn't "in" to music so I had nothing to judge it to. Well years before I used to listen to my brothers Reload cd a lot and that's the only other thing I knew about metallica.


Honestly Fuel is still my favourite song by them. But obviously nostalgia plays a role in that.

yeah really ignore the "metallica" on the cover and compare it to a lot of the nu metal stuff being churned out, it would be a decent enough release.

you gotta admit though the sound of a dog shitting would be a decent enough release if you compare it to a lot of the nu metal stuff being churned out. Not that I have an opinion on the album but

I think it was the first "new" release I bought myself, which was a big deal anyway since I didn't get pocket money or anything and basically lived off copied CDs and Minidiscs from my wealthier mate and my dad occasionally picking up some 2nd hand copy of some older album. what spare money I did get from birthdays and such I put towards guitar stuff.

as somebody that dislikes metal music: that album deserves credit for actually trying to do something remotely expressive and interesting. but of course it was doomed to fail as most metal fans just like pretending to be progressive. they don't actually want change or to experience new things. they want their same little boxed in, derivative sound

every generation has it's cringey teen music.

nu metal was it for the late 80s/early 90s born kids. same way grunge was in for the mid 80s born kids.

I know its really easy to talk shit about metal but this really is a huge problem in the scene. I know this isn't the case with Metallica but a metal band could make their sound a million times less accessible and fans would still accuse them of selling out because the sound changed.

I remember when I used to listen to metal people would bitch about how Job For a Cowboy or other deathcore bands were selling out because they decided to ditch deathcore for actual death metal

I don't understand the point of this. Their time and money could have been much better spent creating an original album.

tbh load, reload, and st anger are really the only metallica albums i listen to anymore, even tho its like twice a year

I like St. Anger too, it's different. The albums raw production sounds pretty good imo and that snare really makes the album stand out. I'm a sucker for downtuned riffs too, so the instrumental doesn't bother me most of the time.

I can defiently see why people don't like it though, the album gets pretty cheesy at times. Dirty Window... wtf is with those lyrics?

Neat video though ts, thanks for sharing.
#27
I always thought the song St Anger was a pretty good song. Nothing too deep or complex. Just thrashy and angry. I dig it.

Dude in the video has a hell of a Hetfield impersonation. Otherwise, hardly modern production. Still sounds bedroom-produced.

You think an original album would get half the attention of this? lol

Frantic is by far the worst song they ever wrote but I never hated St. Anger as much as everyone else otherwise. Mostly I just hear a ton of wasted potential. That album had a handful of decent riffs and if they'd actually tried to make the rest of the album sound like it wasn't written by an angsty 13 year old boy who just discovered drop C it might have been pretty alright

Wow I'm surprised how much his voice can sound like Hetfield!

But the guitar and drum tones aren't really better than the original. A slightly different direction, but I don't like his either.; processed/triggered drums.

so true. Frantic is totally a guilty pleasure of mine. To be honest the shit production fits St Anger pretty well, it's such a rough album in every way.

i mean do you really think that a guy that thought it was a good idea to re-record st anger would actually make a worthwhile original album
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

I honestly think Metallica are terrible and have never understood the hype with them or their music.

The riffs and stuff in this version of it aren't bad but then the vocals started ugh.
