    Metallica

    Discussion of everything from their old days where they kicked obscene amounts of ass, to these days where Lars drums on empty paint cans and they release gems like this:

    I just found out about Lulu not that long ago. It's.... it's awful. Not like St. Anger tiresome but really really bad.

    I really enjoyed their S&M album. That was a genre spanning collaboration I could get behind, but this...

    I won't even bother searching for the other songs to see if they're any good. Unless someone links them here via Youtube so I can listen while browsing the forums.

    All the LULU you need and about five minutes more: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRP_dwEUQwI

    Lulu has entertained me more than any other release this year...

    what's amazing is that no one is their vast network of employees/friends etc had the balls to step in and stop this. Someone had to know what damage this would do to their already embarrassing track record over the past 15 years or so. Or, if someone did try & speak up, it's even worse that they ignored them & went ahead with it anyway. Plus, how do THEY not know it sucks as theyre doing it/listening back & try to make it better themselves. Are you that fucking scared of Lou Reed?

    I downloaded Lulu for a laugh the day it came out. I didn't laugh. I felt embarassed.

    Waggle my ass like a dark prostitute
    Coagulating heart
    Pumping blood

    Blood in the foyer
    The bathroom
    The tea room
    The kitchen, with her knives splayed

    I will swallow your sharpest cutter

    Finally some REAL Metallica talk in this thread. Lulu shouldn't even be discussed in here ...

    Didn't realize those shows start tomorrow already! Curious to see what they're pulling out of the hat there.

    despite this whole Lulu debacle, those shows are probably going to be really cool.

    I LIKE that Metallica pisses off their fans.

    When did Metallica actually start to decline? Was it really just at Metallica (The Black Album) era? Or was it really during the Load/ReLoad eras? I am aware however that the shit really hit the fan during the Napster controversy, and St. Anger wasn't really received well. I think Death Magnetic seemed to get more praise, but it just feel short in some ways too from what I've read and heard.

    Aside from that, it just looks like some of them just seemed to slowly but surely change their stance on file-sharing from the late 2000s right up until now. I also thought that it was kind of funny to see Lars Ulrich call St. Anger a complete abortion here.

    Black Album is sort where it began, imo. It's not a bad album by any means, but, it certainly got to their heads. Load and Reload were/are garbage aside from a couple songs. And, I don't really mind St. Anger too much. I can see what they were going for, and I respect that. And coming from a einsturzende neubauten fan, I kinda liked the snare.

    This is what I got in an email from MetClub:

You should have already received an e-mail asking you to submit your stories of how Metallica influenced your life by being the catalyst for you to meet your significant other or perhaps name your pet after a member. We're also looking for your YouTube videos to show us your skills playing and/or singing Metallica songs... a few lucky Clubbers will be invited to join the band on stage!

    I actually liked the Load/Reload stuff. Big fan of the S&M album, mostly because of Michael Kamen though. They were doing good in the overall scheme of things (except that part of the fanbase the black album alienated) until Napster, and people were destroying their merch in the streets. So you could say it started to chip away in '91 although the album was a monster, but reached a more public level once Lars went on the crusade he did. But that they're still touring and recording (and pissing their fans off, which I love about them too), just means they've taken their hits but have gotten back up each time.

    S&M is amazing. Load and Reload are tainted. I could listen to St. Anger and Death Magnetic a million times over those two albums.

    Seriously? IMO, St. Anger is the worst album in their catalog. Load was really good and I've got some great memories tied it. Reload however is total crap in my books. To me that is when they began to fall off their game....

    You guys should all go to Fresno. Everybody still thinks Metallica is the best band ever in that town.

    Looking forward to checking out the poster room. If I can, I'll snap some photos and post'em here the following day
