No. No. No. No. No.

This just doesn’t work, and it shouldn’t exist.

I’m all for bands trying things from different genres, mixing ideas up and experimenting, but industrial, electronic, synth-driven versions of Metallica songs just don’t work for me.

Boring, monotone, soulless... there’re just so many negative words I could use to describe this. The vocals sound passionless. The 1992 keyboards make most of the music sound like a 90’s video game soundtrack. Oh, and that dance version of ‘One’... No. Just no...

I dunno... Maybe I’m just taking this all too seriously. Obviously, I’m a huge Metallica fan, and while I’ve dabbled in some industrial and EBM music from time to time, this just doesn’t work. Fair play to Die Krupps for trying something different, but no... I’m not having it. This is embarrassing, and not anything I’d ever want to be caught listening to.

Which won’t be an issue, as I’ll never listen to this again anyway.
