So how about their bizarre movie coming out in roughly two months? The trailer was very strange for it. I liked Nightwish's movie, and I like 3D, but this looks... odd.

It looks weird, not interesting and really, really commercial. Like they don't have enough money.

I stand by my opinion that the weakest songs on Reload are better than the weakest songs on Load.

For example - I much prefer a song like Better Than You to Poor Twisted Me.


Better Than You is simple yes but at least it doesn't sound like a jam that's come out of trying out a delay pedal ( PTM ). . .
PTM is bloody epic if you ask me.

Apart from the horrible production (GH3 rip for the win), Death Magnetic was a great return to form, dunno what all the fuss is about.

I've been saying this for years.

It is a good return to form, but it has a few flaws. But all Metallica (aside from MoP) have that IMO.

That section in trivium's new single that sounds like All Nightmare Long.

I was thinking - if Death Magnetic sounded that fat - instead of a thin clippy mess - it would have been amazing.

^^ yep. As much as I like the most of the songs on DM, I can't listen to it simply because of the horrible sound.

:angry: btw. It's not *COOL* to say you've always liked the Loads.

I HAVE always liked them. I played Reload to death when it came out.. I can barely bring myself to put on And Justice For All.

However - it is *COOL* to habitually bash the Loads along with everyone else who wanted The Black Album part 2.

I enjoy Load, there are some great songs on there, but the problem with both albums is: there is way too much filler. Load's good tracks save it, but most songs on Reload fall into the "filler" category IMO.

I don't think Load has any filler on it (sue me), but ReLoad has some weaker tracks, and the highs are lower than on Load. Still a pretty good album though.

Ok, out of curiosity, a poll for everybody: which songs on Load and Reload do you consider to be filler?

Load: none
ReLoad: Better Than You, Attitude, FiXXXer (sorry Kotow)

I consider the "filler" on Reload to be much better than the "filler" on Load.

Just My opinion. :)

I can easily listen to Attitude, Bad Seed, Better Than You but can never manage Cure or Poor Twisted Me.


Seriously - put on Better Than You really f---ing loud and tell me you don't enjoy it  :metal

Better Than You has a decent riff, but the lyrics are shit, the intro and outro are shit and it's a bit boring.

Cure is a top 5 song on Load.

I'm pretty indifferent towards BTY. It's not really bad, but not really good.

Some of the songs from those two albums that I kind of liked back at the time now don't sound very good, largely because of some really ugly vocal melodies.  For example, I used to like Slither, but that "See you crawling..." section now sounds laughably bad.

It's an ugly, dirty, sludgy song, so I don't have problem with them. Not my favourite on ReLoad, but pretty good.

Certainly with you on Ronnie. Highly original composition and foot-tappingly good.

With each new album for a band I really care about, I sit down quietly with the album and listen properly all the way through. I still remember buying Reload and being so mind numbingly bored that I wandered off to do other things instead. That said, I have a soft spot for Low Man's Lyric; another original sounding composition.

Nothing's wrong if I don't like Megadeth, right? I used to listen to them pretty much when I started out listening to metal, but I just can't stand Dave's vocals. KEA is just pure energy. Instrumentally I'd like some Megadeth albums more, but as a whole I think I like KEA better.

But I think I prefer Metallica to Megadeth nowadays. Both have their ups and downs, but Metallica's best albums (MOP and Load) beat every Megadeth album.

We probably shouldn't start the whole Metallica vs Megadeth thing again, but it's just too much fun :D

The "mainstream era"? Two words: Cryptic Writings



But I think I prefer Metallica to Megadeth nowadays. Both have their ups and downs, but Metallica's best albums (MOP and Load) beat every Megadeth album.

Not even close IMO. I can think of at least three 'deth albums (RIP, CW, Endgame, maybe even Countdown and The System Has Failed) that beat Metallica's "masterpieces" (AJFA and MOP).

Metallica is and was a very important band for me, since they were the first band I was really a fan of and they introduced me to metal. I used to say that unlike them, Megadeth still put out great albums, but after 13 and Super Collider, that's unfortunately not the case anymore.
