Metallica Survivor 2017-18: Main Thread
« on: September 04, 2017, 02:19:00 PM »
Welcome everyone to this year's Metallica Survivor. Over the next few months, we'll be voting, discussing, and debating until we crown the best Metallica song. I'll be running an album rankings survivor first, and the order in which they are eliminated will be the order that each album's survivor will be run. Before we do any individual album survivor though, I will be running a non-albums track survivor, featuring the two original songs from S&M, I Disappear, and the four songs from the Beyond Magnetic EP. Lords of Summer will be included in the Hardwired...To Self Destruct survivor, unlike last year where it was included in the non-albums track survivor. The top two songs from each album and from the non-albums track survivor will automatically make the finals, while those songs that come in third will be placed into the consolation round. The top three songs from consolations will earn a spot in the finals. Good luck and may the best song win!

Results from the final round of the non-album tracks survivor:

Rebel of Babylon: 11 (100%)

And with a unanimous decision, Rebel of Babylon goes down for the count, but still earns a spot in the finals alongside the winner of the non-album track survivor, No Leaf Clover, a song that completely dominated its opponents and didn't get a single vote against it throughout the entire survivor. The St. Anger tournament starts this afternoon.

01: No Leaf Clover
02: Rebel of Babylon

03: -Human
04: Hell and Back
05: I Disappear
06: Just a Bullet Away
07: Hate Train

The other time I sat it out, but for curiosity I heard the re-recording some fans made to see if it was at least more bearable (spoiler: sound aside, no, it wasn't), so I might join in as well. I like two songs anyway and just barely torelate another  :D
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!

I even like half of the St. Anger, but there are three songs that definitly shouldn't be there... or anywhere, they should never been written ;) And, IMHO the songs from St Anger are definitly too long... Even those which I like... are too long too ;)

I'm perfectly fine with The Unnamed Feeling being on the top of the garbage fire.


RELOAD! I actually love this album. Sad it's below DM, which I also consider a horrible album.

LAME! Fixxxer is one of Metallica's best songs. But such is life.


Pretty sure the next album survivor is going to be pretty boring for me since I consider it their 2nd worst album.

Well for me to break the tie, I would be counting my vote twice. Since the common practice in my survivors is to withhold my vote in tiebreaker rounds, we would have seen this exact result in the tiebreaker round anyway.
