speaking of icon, theres this band called trivum that sounds, or try to sound like metalllica(but they're mostly screamo), but at times you wonder if they have James singing with them. the soloing isnt half bad either.
i've herd pretty much every song of metallica., that Imperial march was great.lol., i also love the orchestra song 'no leaf clover' lol,
Metallica is friggin awesome ^^. My favorite song of their's is Nothing Else Matters.
I can play that song and Enter Sandman on my guitar XD. Not perfectly but meh...good enough for me right now ^^
Mmmmmmmm......... Metallica, well I wouldn't say there a band I'm obsessed with although I gotta admit, I do like my fair share of hard rock music.
I used to enjoy Metallica back in the days when Fleming Rasmussen was their producer (the albums up to ...And Justice For All). Their music then had an experimental edge to it that was unrivaled.
Then for Metallica (the album everyone keeps referring to as "Black") they switched producers to Bob Rock, a guy famous for being Bon Jovi's producer (Slippery When Wet ftw?) and Metallica's sound changed drastically. I don't know if the producer change caused the change in musical style or if the band wanted a producer more familiar with their new style, but either way I lost interest in them very, very, very, very quickly.
I picked up Metallica on the very first day it was released, popped it into my CD player, listened to "Enter Sandman" and said, "What the **** is this shit?" Then I listened to the whole CD and my days of Metallica fandom were over. They now sounded like every other heavy metal band out there.
That album killed metal for me. I pretty much gave up on the genre and moved towards the emerging grunge (Skin Yard, Motherlovebone, Soundgarden) and industrial (Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, KMFDM) scenes and for the most part -Anthrax's Sound of White Noise being a notable exception- gave up heavy metal for good.
Clan? What Clan?
I'm the Master. I need no Clan.
i do agree with that....their old stuff was WAY WAY better than the Black album. But i do like Nothing Else Matters
For a wounded man shall say to his assailent, "If I live, I'll kill you. If I die, you are forgiven." Such is the rule of honor.
I love this band!! They are awesome... here where I live they have a full half hour on the radio where you just listen to nothing but Metallica!!
Thank you Lasura!My lover speaks; and he says, 'Arise my beloved my beautiful one and come!' -Song of Songs 2:10
for pre-black songs, there are a select few i really enjoy:
Fade to Black
For Whom the Bell Tolls
Seek and Destroy
& Creeping Death
The Black album was the prime of Metallica for me. I cant find one bad song on that cd. Again, this is my opinion though
