Do we have to bring up Cliff Burton?

I have recently got the feeling that he was the balls of Metallica all the albums he's on are kickass and then there was Justice and then the awesomeness faded away

Blood Mountain is awesome, easily on my 2006 top ten. Crack The Skye is also good. They're less straight forwardly heavy and a lot more subtle in their approach but i love 'em.

Metallica... I won't blame it on Newsted or Trujillo, cause in their other projects or bands they're two very good bass players.

It feels more like Lars and Hetfield are really tired and dried out in the songwriting section...
I mean they still can put on a goood show but when it comes to writing new songs, they all seem like a bunch of mediocre riffs thrown together...

Yeah Mastadon are better than I thought they would be.

I think Newsted and Trujillo are just doing there job... being a bass player, I don't blame them either to come into the Metallica and try to tell James and Lars what to do would take some serious balls.

I read that Cliff introduced James to alot of new music and ideas for song structures blah blah blah between Kill em' all and ride the lightening, I just get the idea that his input was important.

The problem with Metallica? They are old, not age wise, Slayer are still going but just attitude, they aren't sitting around listening to Motorhead and Iron Maiden albums anymore.

Ha. Everybody knows how much ass Metallica kicked is directly proportional to the level of influence Mustaine had on the songwriting. MOP is a sad, boring shadow of the preceding albums. Hetfield and Hammet are pathetic.

Then why most of late Megadeth albums, suck? Maybe Mustaine has been replaced by a clone and he was actually kidnapped by Ufos in the late 80's.... I knew that the emo crybaby in the "Some kind of monster" documentary couldn't be him....

If you skip to half-way through this clip you can hear how awesome this band are. I was the rhythm guitarist for a while but couldn't dedicate enough time to the band to keep with it.

Lacrymae;


Can't wait to hear their debut album.
