This is the 2nd Single from Metallica's breakthrough album "...And Justice For all." It showcases one of the highlights from the notoriously badly produced 1988 record. It also has 2 covers which oddly enough are better produced than the actual song. I'm not giving it full marks because it is so poorly produced.

"Harvester Of Sorrow" is one of the lyrical masterpeices of "...And Justice For All" with lines such as "Anger, misery, you suffer unto me". It shows off the truly evil side to James Hetfields vocals. James alos does very good jobs of the covers, which are originaly by 2 of Metallica's great influences, Budgie and Diamond Head. But like the Creeping Death single, another track from the album would have made this even better.
Overall Impression — 9
Overall it is hard to rate this because there are only 3 songs, but it is definatly not the best single. That title goes "Creeping Death" because it is a better song than "Harvester Of Sorrow."
