    Holy shit balls. New song is a ripper. Can't wait to hear what the rest sounds like.

    I dig the single but very apprehensive about it being a double album. I was hoping they'd put out something a little more concise this time around.

    The artwork is horrible but the song is pretty cool. I think this is what Metallica fans have been waiting for. However, I'm cautiously optimistic that the album itself will deliver.

    Goddamn, 2016 is really trying to make up for the fact that there's more to the world than horrible bullshit. Thanks, music!

    yeah the artwork is not pretty, haha.
  9. I think I dislike it so much that I won't spend the money on the vinyl.

    Honestly that's probably one of the worst covers for an album I've seen, I thought it was a fan mockup at first. Song is good though, Hetfield's lyrics are not great but the music itself is good.

    Man that song is pretty sweet. Just hope the usual ambition is there. Love them bashing through some thrash-y shit, as long as they balance it with some more complex songs.

    Also hopefully not all the songs have Hetfield's simplistic "the world is bad" lyrics. It's never been his best look and he can actually be a very good lyricist sometimes, grading on a curve for the genre

    I'm assuming since it's a double album with only 12 songs, there's going to be at least some ambition here, haha. Definitely agree on the lyrics.

    I know that most of their material aside the first five albums is maligned, but "Hero of the Day" is a top song of theirs

    lets see if they used an izotope ozone pre set to master it again

    You feel like they have to have learned their lesson right?

    Cause it's not like it was just a little corner of the Internet who gave a shit like Jimmy Eat World's production on Damage or something. That story was big enough that they have to be aware

    They ditched Rubin, who I know a lot of the blame was laid on

    yeah in general rubin hasnt been great for the rock bands he works with
  21. cshadows2887

    Hailey, It Happens @haileyithappens Supporter

    He did get them back to doing what they do best, but influencing bands to reconsider their direction seems to be his only discernible talent.

    well his over the top abrasive style worked really well for yeezus, for example
  23. cshadows2887

    Hailey, It Happens @haileyithappens Supporter

    Even then I feel like the difference was in approach. He wasn't the one building those revolutionary beats. But he did get Kanye thinking about simplicity and not shying away from some abrasiveness
  24. What does that mean? I honestly don't know.

    izotope ozone is a plug in that's pretty much a mastering suite, it has a ton of pre sets that a lot of amateurs use to psuedo-master their own work without going through a real mastering engineer (i do it, although i dont use pre sets), im just making a joke since the last metallica album's mastering was beyond amateurish
