The Day That Never Comes: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z4xpFMNc3VY
Cyanide: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzxoMpfNwEM

What do you guys think? And im mostly curious to know what group of Metallica fans like it and which didn't...Youtube doesn't give any clarity on the matter. Now I hate their last 3 albums (Load, Reload, St.Anger) but I personally like both the new songs. Especially Cyanide - the intro and particularly the main riff kick major ass IMO. Other cool bits too, like the brief harmony at the end of the solo dropping back into the main riff.
The Day That Never Comes took 2 or 3 listens before I liked it. Not as good, sounds like they tried too hard.
Overall their sound so far seems like a splicing of LoadReload era and old school Metallica...Which turns out to be quite good

Personally, I don't really like anything after Master Of Puppets. I listen to it sometimes, but it really isn't that incredible to me like Master was

It is a small world for metal fanatics. I welcome you fellow musicians, especially the metalheads!

I like all of Metallica's music. I've gotta say they're one of my biggest inspirations musically, i'm currently trying to work through the final solo to Fade to Black. I like their new stuff, I really liked Cyanide and The Day that never comes is starting to grow on me the more and more i hear it, I especially like the beginning: it kind of has the same feel as fade to black.

I been figuring out the first few minutes of TDTNC and the main riff is so damn fiddly with the pick at first. I think of that song as like a mix Fade to Black, the Unforgiven and One...but absolutely nowhere near as good as either lol

I like up to "...And Justice For All", but there are those songs here and there I that I like from "Load" and on.

Never really got into Metallica - but they're good at what they do, and they stick to what they're good at. Maybe because I've never listened to them much, a lot of what they do sounds to me very samey - but then again, those who love Metallica would say, "Ah! That's their signature sound!"

I'll stay on the fence with this one - nothing I'd automatically switch off, but nothing much to turn me on either.

:D :D :D

Yeah, Masters was AWESOME! I wish they would have done an extended play of masters. 8 songs wasn't enough.

I haven't been into Metallica since the "black" album. Not much of their stuff since then has done anything for me.

I don't know yet, i'm optimistic though.
I remember starting a thread here about 2 -3 years ago for the petition going around started by fans, to get metallica to fire bob rock and work with a new producer...wasn't very popular if i recall :D , anyway everybody was for rubin to produce the band's next album, which he's now done, but i can't shake this feeling that the songs seem forced.

But this is where it gets complicated for me, metallica have a very loyal fanbase that got older and matured with the band, For me allot of what made Master Of Puppets (and all earlier albums for that matter) great was at that time in my life i was young crazy - a different person then now, and i still listen to that album today and love it, it takes me back to that time - my own personal delorean if you will, but it's rooted in memories of who i was then and what was going on in my life, i'm sure many people have that same connection.

People change, i think if Master Of Puppets or even Justice came out now (After the loads and St ANger) the majority of people would bash the album.

That's not a reflection of the songs it's just we change and our likes and dislikes change, my point is i don't think it's a question of are these songs better than MOP or previous albums, it's just what do i like now when i hear it the 1st time, what moves me now?
For me it's a question i thought i'd never even think of.. have i out grown my favourite band? :(
i dont't know yet i'll see September 12th
