    This is really, really bad-ass. WHY ARE METALLICA GIVING ME MAIDEN VIBES?? IT'S AMAZING! 4:45, think about it.

    This newest track isn't too bad, but I found the last two were kinda boring. And something about the drumming is just... well, it's Lars. :lol: Or maybe just a weird drum mix, but either way, it just sounds off to me.

    It just dawned on me, that these songs are going to sound absolutely awesome live. They feel like the type of songs that a high school thrash band wrote, but with 30 years of sensibility and musical props. Well done.

    clearly this thread like all the other ones will end up polarised between the ones who love it and those who think...meh.
    FWIW i'm on the meh side. tired old mash up of KEA and RTL riffs filtered through Lars' 60 year old legs...

    I'm so glad that they're proving me wrong so far. :lol: When they released the first few songs for Death Magnetic, I remember only liking one (All Nightmare Long), but so far, I've loved all 3.

    I didn't really like it, it had this weird feeling like it was at least 10 bpm too slow. It might have just been the robotic 16th note drum fills everywhere sounding JUST SLIGHTLY TOO SEPARATED, but I dunno. I think the first two singles were better.

    I REALLY liked most of Death Magnetic on that live Blu-Ray, for what it's worth. I don't really remember how the album itself sounded. Maybe I should wait for the live version of this, too! It will probably be up to the speed where it sounds good instead of hesitant, like this did. I think it might have just been the drums being really distractingly mechanical and bland.

    Oh, another snoozefest track? Definitely the worse of the 3 songs we had the "pleasure" to listen. Totally uninspired and uninspiring.
    I liked the very beginning though (first 23 seconds), it gave me some hope. The Maiden ripoff riffs in the chorus and bridge(s) are kind of pathetic. The first solo sounds like it is straight from a country or texas blues song.
    And it is 6 minutes and 30 seconds long...

    That was badass. Three for three, so stoked for this album. If the rest of the album is in line with these first three, oh man!

    Not feeling it, but I was only really feeling the other songs till I heard a good live recording. So I be tthis will be rather good.

    Love the song!! How long before we get to hear remixes of this song using the tone of past albums? I think this will sound great with The Black Album tone!

    My comments aren't too different from the Moth Into Flame. Bit of a weak chorus perhaps, and the solo's by numbers. Otherwise, James sounds good, good riffs for the most part, I feel like Lars is trying a few new things, and in general I think they're subtly evolving their sound. All up, pretty excited.

    why are they stealing stock riffs written by 17 year-olds in 1989?

    I just still cannot get over Lars after all these years.


    He's so serious about his crap drum beats it's pathetic



    That being said...they are headed in a better direction then the last couple releases :lol:

    I think the song was 2-3 minutes too long. Not much in terms of riff or solo work so I'm in the meh pile for this one.
    I couldn't help but think though watching that videoclip that Lars has found a really innovative way of holding his headphones in place, his best creative output in years.
    Also what was up with the senile old man look Hammet was going for? I know they're getting older but did they have to make it painfully obvious in this clip?
