METALLICA Reviews

METALLICA Load

Album · 1996 · Hard Rock
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
aglasshouse
"Load" is the sixth studio album released by Metallica in 1996. "Load" is the runner-up to the million-dollar making "Black Album/Metallica". Many people were dissapointed by Load, but honestly, I can say that this is easily my favorite Metallica album. Like "RELoad", "Load" I feel is bashed way too much for being different. That is why I am here to share my own opinion.

1. Ain't My Bitch

'Aint My Bitch' is a more fast paced song compared to the other songs on the album, and is honestly very catchy. The vocals easily run along-side the riffs and the drums. The song slows every once in a while, until it quickly regains it's speed. The song is very fun to listen to, yet not one of my favorites. (8/10)

2. 2x4

After 'Ain't My Bitch', '2x4' is a much slower song compared to the former. The riffs and drums still have that sort of groovy feel, which is not bad. In fact, it makes songs like these just absolutely fun to listen to. Unlike 'AMB', this track doesn't have as much groove or overall change. However, it does still have a great bouncy feel to it. The vocals sound much more ominous when paired with other deeper voices. Not as great as 'AMB', but still fun to listen to. (8/10)

3. The House Jack Built 'The House Jack Built' starts off with slow heavy guitar notes, but eventually gains speed after Hetfield cries "Let the show begin..." and the song gets extremely heavy and awesome. Another fun listen, but not as great as other songs from the album. Just a little slow for my taste. (7/10)

4. Until It Sleeps

'Until It Sleeps' is probably the weakest track on the album. The song is very slow throughout, and overall has not much change. When the song gets slightly faster, it gets decent. However, when jumping from slow to fast isn't a great experience all the time. (6/10)

5. King Nothing

This is where the going gets good. The band gets their old feel back with this song and gives you a good shot of the old Metallica feel. You are treated with a long intro which is just leading you to something awesome, and you are treated with it. "Aren't you satisfied?" The lyrical value and vocals themselves sound like the real Hetfield, however the guitar is combined with slower and heavier to make a very enjoyable song. Definitely my favorite song on the album, and probably my favorite in all of Metallica's history. (10/10)

6. Hero Of The Day

After the more heavy 'King Nothing', the power ballad 'Hero Of The Day' comes in to sweep you off your feet with slow and calmer guitar. Slightly retaining the old Metallica feel, the song still is able to use a mix of calm and heavy to make something amazing. The lyrics flow amazingly well alongside the chords and riffs. You are eventually treated to the climax of the ballad and are just absolutely blown away. (10/10)

7. Bleeding Me The slightly shorter of the two epics on the album, 'Bleeding Me' comes out to be one of my favorite epics of all time. The calm ambience combined with Hetfield's voice along side the constant rhythm of the song gets you into a mood of slowness, but you are instead greated with heavy chords and angry lyrics. The song is never the same, constantly and smoothly changing to create one great song. (10/10)

8. Cure

Coming back with "Load"'s jazzy feel, 'Cure' is brining you again back into the original rhythm of the album. Not as much work was put into the song, which gives it that classic Metallica feel alongside the groove of "Load"'s style. (9/10)

9. Poor Twisted Me

'Poor Twisted Me' is another weak track on the album. There are more guitar breaks and more drumming, however the vocals just get more annoying in this song. Not going anywhere, 'Poor Twisted Me' is probably the weakest track on the album. (5/10)

10. Wasted My Hate

Again, 'Wasted My Hate' gets you in the more jazzy tempo different from other Metallica songs. Probably the fasted song from the album, 'Wasted My Hate' uses great vocals, percussion, and guitar throughout the song. Enjoyable to say the least. (8/10)

11. Mama Said Now here is the only horrible song on the album. 'Mama Said' takes Metallica's sound and combines it with some country lunacy. Pretty obvious already, but those two should not be mixed. Enough said. (0/10)

12. Thorn Within Not much to say about 'Thorn Within', besides that it has nice heavy chords and slow drums to go along side eachother, other than that however, the song is pretty generic. (8/10)

13. Ronnie

Here is a good song to headbang to. Very nice beat and tempo. Constant guitar in the backround alongside nice double vocals from Hetfield and Newsted. (7/10)

14. The Outlaw Torn The longer of the two epics, 'The Outlaw Torn' takes the spot as last song on the album. 'The Outlaw Torn', unlike 'Bleeding Me', however, does not share the same cheeriness and charm as the latter. In fact, the song is pretty boring in the area of guitar, vocals and percussion. (6/10)

Overall, we shouldn't hate on "Load" just because it's different. Not all Metallica albums have to blast the flesh from your face with every note, and this album is a good example of that. Just listen to it with an open mind and enjoy!

Thanks for reading, and be sure to comment and tell me your opinion on the album! Salutations, and have a nice day! -V.U-

This was a new era for METALLICA. Hardly recovered from losing their bassist, Cliff Burton, they were finding sudden popularity after the success of MASTER OF PUPPETS. On this release they upped the progressiveness making this one of the earliest prog thrash metal releases and certainly one of the most successful in terms of sales. They went from being a slightly successful band to one of the biggest in the biz.

Although I hear a lot of complaining about the production of this album, I have to say that I quite like it and I think it gives it a unique sound unlike any other album. It's important to remember that there was a backlash to overproduced albums in the late 80s with the success of slick studio albums from Def Leppard, Bon Jovi, Poison etc.

I believe that Metallica intended this to have a more lo-fi sound that would keep them sounding underground even if they were becoming one of the biggest names on the planet. Something about the theme and lyrical content about the lack of justice that lend an oppressive sound to the whole thing. The sounds of the guitars and bass as one super-instrument somehow imply that when justice is denied none has his own voice. I may be digging deep here but for some reason it really works for me!

While it's really hard for me to pick a favorite album from METALLICA (only 3 contenders), this one may be the one i've listened to the most. It was the first album I actually owned from them and I have listened to this more times than I can count to the point of being sick of it years ago!

Goodbye thrash METALLICA! Hello commercial behemoth $$$

I have to admit that I do like this album to a certain degree. It is very well and slickly produced. The bass now plays with the drum instead of the guitar giving a more traditional metal feel. The angst is still there and it still rocks. Many songs are catchy and still have a familiar Metallica sound. Not a bad crossover album when all is said and done. The thrashiness still exerts itself in weaker doses.

However, after 3 stellar thrash releases this is an admitted let-down for the older fans. It was a clear rush to cash in on the momentum that they had accrued throughout the 80s and a calculated turn towards a more grungy radio-friendly sound that they felt would possibly not alienate old fans while attracting new ones. I have to say that they did that to a certain degree. I, myself, being a fan of their thrash albums still bought this and listened to it. Not against sound changes but this was the beginning of the great decline with this band.

The themes are still dark and the videos are cool and as far as a commercial release goes I do think they pulled this off fairly well. Good but not great. Can't say I love it. Can't say it hate it (that is saved for the next album!)

This is largely regarded as a masterpiece and all I have to say is that not only is this third release from METALLICA cutting edge in progressively advancing thrash metal into the limelight but also deserves some credit for forwarding the doom aspect of metal. I can't think of anything more Sabbathy than the depressingly downtuned intros to “Battery,” “The Thing That Should Not Be,” and “Welcome Home.” Although doom metal was taking root in bands like Pentagram and Candlemass, it was METALLICA who really brought the sound to the masses which contributed to its expansion in the 90s. Phenomenal album that everyone already knows about unless you live on Mars or something.

METALLICA Beyond Magnetic

EP · 2011 · Thrash Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Beyond Magnetic" is an EP release by US thrash/heavy metal act Metallica. The EP first released digitally through iTunes in December 2011 and saw a CD release in Janary 2012 through Mercury/Universal. The four tracks on the EP are previously unreleased rough mix outtakes from the "Death Magnetic (2008)" sessions.

...and it´s safe to say that the four tracks on the EP are in the same style as the tracks on "Death Magnetic (2008)". That means a combination of thrash metal and Metallica´s take on heavy metal. While there are memorable vers/chorus parts in the tracks, all tracks feature structural twists and turns to keep the EP entertaining throughout. The playing is as always on a high level and James Hetfield´s distinct vocal style provides the music with an original sound. The sound production is slightly more raw than on "Death Magnetic (2008)", but keeping in mind that these tracks are rough mixes, that´s no surprise. The sound production is still professional and powerful. The bass drum sound could have been a bit higher in the mix, but that´s a minor issue to my ears.

All four tracks on the 29:08 minutes long EP are entertaining, powerful and catchy. Metallica successfully manage to combine thrashy riffing with more melodic tinged and groove oriented heavy metal. The fact that the tracks feature a few surprises along the way also provide the EP with a longivity effect that not all releases possess. If you are not a fan of "Death Magnetic (2008)", "Beyond Magnetic" pretty surely won´t do much for you either, but fans of the album should find lots of enjoy here and I think a 3.5 star (70%) rating is deserved.

I'm reviewing this as a Metallica release cause, well, it seems like one Metallica release with 3 good guests (not trying to bash the other bands, not at all, you'll see on the review).

Anthrax: Great show full of energy, you can see the joy on the band members faces, also, Joey Belladonna vocals are pretty in shape, specially for a 50 years old man. The fact all of them are using the same t-shirt is very nice, shows the unity of the band, no egos involved, one for all, all for one and a good metal show. Rate: 4

Megadeth: Dave gathered great musicians, they're not really new (but sounds as a one man band with guests). Guitars and bass (David Ellefson is one of the great metal bassists ever) are great. But what the f**k is his voice here? What Dave's trying to do with all that falsettos? Is a pain to watch him singing. And he seems worried and nervous the whole show. I never really watched Megadeth live, so I can't say if he's always been like that. Rate: 3

Slayer: The band hit the stage and their hardcore/thrash/metal fast sound comes right to your face. Kerry King accessories (braces and chains) are a little too much on my opinion, but so are the Jeff Hanneman boots xD But their guitars models are very cool. I do like Slayer and they were the one I wanted to see most, but on stage they look like a prog/hardcore/thrash act, cause it looks like the same song over and over. But still, they have great energy, still 'angry' after all this time and Tom Araya's voice still great. Rate: 4

Before Metallica hit the stage a couple of interviews about the Dio death, all of those guys are fans, for sure.

Metallica: Of course they are the 'big brother' here, playing doubled amount of time than the other bands. And you can say whatever you want to say, but few bands can put up a show like these guys do. They made every penny worth. And James Hetfield is singing better than ever, and in a crooner kinda of microphone xD Trujillo is always a fun scene, walking like a 10 pound Gorilla on stage. And I'm sure I'll never like Lars drumming. And every days that passes one idea comes to my mind stronger and stronger, I really would like to see a James solo album, he would do some serious good thing alone, for sure. But, they'll not have a bigger rate for me, cause of one thing, the show IT IS great, but it's the same show over and over the past 2 tours, same songs, same sequence and even James using the same words with the audience. Rate: 4

All in all, it's worth to watch, with a beer on your side will be even better, even if you do not drink (like myself) xD

"Let's hear it for Michael Kamen yeah!" He was the only one who had the guts to do this. This is the ultimate exercise in excess, to marry Metallica with a Symphony orchestra. The DVD is a crystal clear well edited package onthe ultimate event of the year. It is great to watch the orchestra getting into the music and then to see Metallica banging along. The crowd are as raucous as any Metallicrowd and of course it is as heavy as it always is. There are some fantastic surprises such as Call Of Cthulu sounding very Gothic and powerful with the violins and brass. The concert shows in equal measure the band and orchestra trading off seamlessly. It has been done before of course with Deep Purple and other metal acts. It is almost becoming a cliche of late with many bands taking up the idea including Kiss, Within Temptation, Dream Theater and Therion, all of which are captured on DVD. Non metal acts have done it such as Camel, Yes and ELP. The weird thing about it is these orchestral and rock marriages always work for me. I love to hear that massive orchestral sound with the crunching distortion of guitars. To hear a violin sweep across when you expect a guitar solo is bliss to my ears.

There are so many highlights on this DVD including Master of Puppets, more dramatic than ever, the darkness of super heavy The Thing That Should Not Be, The Memory Remains, iconic with audience participation, Nothing Else Matters, a definitive highlight and the crowd are in raptures when this is played. For Whom the Bell Tolls sounds very Gothic with the sweeping violins, and the song One is a masterpiece with the orchestral accompaniment.

The footage is professionally shot and edited as you would expect and it is nice to see the orhestra mamebrs having fun with this. None of the songs are less heavy, they are augmented to majestic heights. Watching this concert live is the best experience which is perhaps a pinnacle of the group's existence. Soon after it all turned sour as we know, captured on the astonishing Some Kind of Monster doco, but it is so great to see Metallica at the height of their powers as we do in S & M. Check out this DVD to see metal at its grandest.

METALLICA Some Kind of Monster

St Clanger, I'm madly in anger with you... but I love the documentary!

The best thing about the much maligned St Anger is the documentary behind it, Some Kind of Monster.

The band went through immense turmoil during the making of this album. Hetfield left the band for rehab and to clear the cobwebs in his head. With lyrics about his lifestyle and his 'deathstyle', the content of 'St Anger' is bitter, morbid and twisted, and there is no heart in it. Hetfield sounds like he has vocal diarrhea, a word incidentally, from the Greek word meaning 'flowing through'. The only thing flowing on this monstrosity is the cash from the fans who unfortunately were blind sided into buying an expensive beer coaster.

The documentary is a fly on the wall look at how St Wanger was created and it is not a pretty sight. Nothing is left to the imagination as we witness the personal trauma suffered by all concerned. Hefield in particular comes across as breaking down in fornt of us all and it truly sad and as emotionally raw as you will see in a doco, even more so than Anvil. The best thing as far as for the band that occurs is the introduction of bassist Robert Trujillo, who jumped on board the Metallica Machine and he looks stunned when they say it is him they want. Bob Rock on the other hand annoys and fascinates at intervals, making his presence felt but he is no where near as annoying as the counsellor who just jumps in every chance he gets. Some of the things he says are profound and some are just plain frustrating.

When Hetfield leaves it is a compelling movie and you really feel for the band and crew. Lars is especially vocal and very hurt it seems but he is intelligent to know that Hetfield will return; deep down he knows it. Of course the result of this personal chaos is the album stinks. The lyrics were written on toilet paper so that the music industry could wipe their bums on them. Ulrich is most worried about this release but it is out of their hands and we see on the doco how a band is treated when they are at their lowest and it is not for the faint hearted. To see Metallica falling apart is distressing for the fan but as we know they have a triumphant return with the incredible Death Magnetic. I also loved Megadeth's intervention to help out in places, and the scene where Mustaine expresses his pain at being second best in Megadeth is apowerfully moving moment; one of the most unforgettable parts of the doco.

We hear some of the inane lyrics being rehearsed such as the infamous unforgiveable crapola of Frantic; "tick tick tick tick tick tick tock, Frantic tick tick tick tick tick tick tock, Treading water full of worry, This frantic tick tick talk goes hurry... my lifestyle determines my deathstyle" or "This is the face that you hide from, This is the mask that comes undone, Ominous, I am in us, Ominous, I am in us..." or "No compromise, My heart won't pump the other way, Wake the sleeping giant, Wake the beast, Wake the sleeping dog, No, let him sleep..." or "Tear it down, Strip my layers off, My turpentine, Old paint, old looks, Cover up the past, White heat, white light, Super whity, bones, Bones of you and I, Pure if I ... Can't you help me?" and finally "Who's in charge of my head today, Dancin' devils in angels way, It's my time now, Look out motherf***ers here I come, Gonna make my head my home..." Of course we all know the lyrics are a result of how disturbed the band were at the time; nothing was going right and as you see in the doco the band are just going through the motions simply to continue.

The whole background on this album is compelling viewing and the documentary is one of the best 'warts and all' fly- on-the-wall docos in history. Avoid the album, watch the movie.
