I bet it's a RickRoll.

EDIT: that was disappointing...

Yea, I listened to it this morning and didn't like it. It's way too Death Metalish IMO. I liked The Day That Never Comes though.

I thought this album, according to all the quotes and sources, was suppose to sound like Ride The Lightning? This sounds like Load/re-load. Just with more palm muting.

Am I the only one that thinks that Lars' drums on both of these singles were too loud?

idk, its like a modern Damage Inc. with bad production/mixing... or maybe im just not accustomed to Rick Rubin's style. He did a good job on the Bon Jovi, Slayer and Linkin Park records he produced but so far these Metallica singles are sounding like a work in progress.
#13
Is it the youtube quality or did the guitars on this sound really sucky in most places? The vocals I liked though.
#14
It's decent - I think the album will be pretty badass. It'll never be what people are expecting, but it'll be good. The two songs are already a huge step up from St Anger, so let's not complain and let them do their thing.

I might literally **** when the album comes out. I'm so excited.

****ty youtube quality. go stream it from the 'tallica site if you want to hear it clearer.

I thought it seriouslly sucked. If they'd just left things at The Day That Never Comes I woulda bought the album without a second thought, but i'm wary now...

Only Metallica thread... meh


It's very good IMO. Althought I was just expecting more creativity from Kirk, I like this song very much. The vocals are good.

Not my fave but still good - feel it goes slightly ST ANGER on the chorus.

Please, WAIT FOR THE ALBUM BEFORE BASHING THE SOUND.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

i think this album is gonna be sweet. i've liked the songs i've heard so far.
Maybe in order to understand mankind, we have to look at the word itself: "Mankind". Basically, it's made up of two separate words - "mank" and "ind". What do these words mean ? It's a mystery, and that's why mankind is.

I wish Bob Rock didn't get James to change his singing style. For me, I think thats been the biggest sh1tter for everything after AJFA/Black album. And Lars, his drumming sounds like crap too. Seriously, have a good listen to Justice and focus on the drumming. It was perfect for the songs, it was huge and had feeling, and now it just seems he's trying to keep a fast pace, and thats it. The guitars just don't sound huge to me anymore and none of the riffs stand out. I gave it two good listens too and I can't recall the main riff. I know there was one but it just had no impact on me. A big reason I was a huge fan of Metallicas music (20+ years) was that they changed tempo and time with there riffs and build a lot of emotion. They just had the ability to put together way better riffs and song structure back then then they do now. It just sounds to mish mashed with not much really standing out. Kirks solo work was a bit disapointing too. I heard a bunch of lines that sound like they came of of other solos, with no real climax and a blah ending...I'm hoping for much better with the other tunes.

Sounds like they need to re-mix it but maybe its just the quality of youtube.
Who Said Anything About A Signature ? ಠ_ಠ

Actually I take back a bit of what I said before after listening to it again. James singing is not so bad and its deffinately better than St. Anger. BUT, Kirks solo sounds like the one in Phantom Lord, anyone agree. I knew I heard it before, and like some have said, I think the mixing is not as good as it could be...I really wanna hear that heavy distorted guitar ya know.

I never particularly liked Metallica, but I liked Orion and Battery.

This new album won't make me change my mind, at least Load and Reload had balls...

I love it, it's the most like pure Metallica out of the the three songs i've heard and that, in my opinion that can only be a good thing
#36
The vocals suck-diddly-uck. The guitars suck. The drums are annoying. This is pretty much my least favourite Metallica song. (Discounting the crappier songs from St. Anger)

Cyanide and Day That Never Comes were pretty sweet though.

I enjoyed this song after comparing this to St.Anger I feel they are trying to change back to their glory days as for the sound quality I think they are not going to give out the high quality version online and just put a much better version on the album also cyanide was one of my favs so far the song is quite catchy and pretty heavy I think they are really trying their best on this album I think this album be a mix of Black, Justice, and MOP which is not a really bad place to be
