I was in my room and I was just like staring at the greenlights on FARK thinking about everything
But then again I was thinking about nothing
And then my mom came in and I didn't even know she was there she called my name
And I didn't even hear it, and then she started screaming: VUDU! VUDU!

To be fair to Metallica, other than James's destroyed voice (which is understandable), I think they have pulled it together in the past couple of years or so. It seems that the BIg 4 tour where they played almost all pre-black stuff kicked their asses into gear, because all the live stuff I've seen since then has been decently tight. They are definitely tighter than when I saw them in 2009.

Agreed. Saw them on The Full Arsenal, where they recorded for Through the Never (Edmonton, August 17th) and they killed it.

Hetfield has blown his voice but Lars has also been losing his shiat drummer-wise, playing lesser and lesser beats. I'm sure they'll always be tight, but they'll never be thrash even when they play their own thrash songs.

That is true to the same extent, but watching the Big 4 show in Sofia made me realize that all of those bands are aging. They all played their best on that tour due to peer pressure I presume, but fark, they are old. It always seems weird to me that Metallica gets singled out for being old when Slayer, Megadeth, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, etc, are also losing their abilities to do it like they used to. Now, Lars is lazy, this is well known.

Megadeth lost it in the '90s and everybody knows Mustaine is batshiat crazy, and now Slayer IS a tribute band; or at least the Kerry and Tom show. The other guys all just kind of showed back up recently, at least from what I noticed--if they've been out beating up the small theater/club circuits, that's badass. It is weird seeing Exodus and Testament mount real tours again. Hell, Slayer has been repacking the same songs into different names and new album art for years: nobody goes to see them play Americon, they go to see them play Reign in Blood or South of Heaven or War Ensemble. Anthrax at one point had basically Scott Ian firing everybody else.

So yeah, they all have lost it. I was only simply stating that Metallica was at a better state than they had been for all of the 2000s. That doesn't mean it's 1986 again.

I can still dream! It would be nice, though, if they re-mixed and remastered AJFA. Really. With the bass tracks.

Interestingly enough, all of AJFA was on Guitar Hero: Metallica. Since you can play bass on it, it required audible bass. So if you look around, you can find fan-mixed versions using the master tracks from Guitar Hero.

That is actually exactly what I was looking for, but I am too drunk/lazy to have found it. So thanks for a real link. On another note, metal shows of that size are always fun. I saw At The Gates at a show about that size last October. It was pretty epic.

That sounds awesome. I've seen them in an overcrowded BB King's in NYC and almost passed out from the heat. I also saw them a few months ago at the huge Maryland Deathfest. Can't wait for their new album to drop soon.

I should add that I feel so shiatty that I have never made it up to MDF. I am from Virginia and I was actually born in Baltimore. So that is something I need to check off the bucket list. However, I lived abroad for three years, and Europe is infinitely better for metal shows, so there is that.

farkingismybusiness: jchuffyman: I should add that I feel so shiatty that I have never made it up to MDF. I am from Virginia and I was actually born in Baltimore. So that is something I need to check off the bucket list. However, I lived abroad for three years, and Europe is infinitely better for metal shows, so there is that.

I wouldn't plan on going next year if I were you. They announced the line up recently and it's pretty terrible. Tons of filler.


Yeah, that doesn't look all that appealing. BTW, were you referring to Jaxx as the VA club earlier? I also havent been there, but I am fairly close friends with a band that opened for Melechesh there.

Yep that's the place. I've seen so many awesome metal bands there. But it's called Empire now.

jchuffyman: dr_blasto: dr_blasto: One Bad Apple: I read this and thought they meant Trujillo.

They didn't say "the GOOD Suicidal Tendencies bassist" died.

/besides, Trujillo isn't in ST, he's in a OK-ish Metallica tribute band.

To be fair to Metallica, other than James's destroyed voice (which is understandable), I think they have pulled it together in the past couple of years or so. It seems that the BIg 4 tour where they played almost all pre-black stuff kicked their asses into gear, because all the live stuff I've seen since then has been decently tight. They are definitely tighter than when I saw them in 2009.


James vocal range is just as it always has been, although the default pitch is somewhat lower than it used to be.  He's really increased his abilities after the experiments on shiat Anger, and it's done a lot of good.

I'm really happy to see all the Suicidal love around here, I'm the only person I know who truly loves almost everything Suicidal ever did up until about 1999 or so.  Last saw them in 2000, and will definitely be seeing them on their tour with Slayer this year.  fark YEAH.

I've only seen Sui once and it was at the Super Bowl of Hardcore in DC sometime around 1999. Great show.

I guess he won't laugh tomorrow.

About all the Metallica stuff: They started sucking in 1991 and haven't looked back. Vocals aside, Kirk Hammett got incredibly sloppy, and Lars has already been mentioned.

I read that as "bassoonist" and thought "who the hell plays the bassoon anymore".

At least he outlived Punk Rock by 30 years.
That's more than a lot of Punk Rockers did.
