    Part of the band's grief for Cliff manifested itself into the hazing that ensued, before it turned into out and out jealousy for the Echobrain thing. It's a bit of a shame because Jason was more than just a great bass-player and energy on stage, he seemed to be more connected to the fans than the other guys. Even more sad is that he has not utilized his talents into something that could have established him in the marketplace.

    Justice was a great album due to the song writing/guitars on it. It doesn’t sound very good but I’d take that over something like the black album. The kick drums sound cool with a subwoofer if you’re into that sound. Never bothered me personally that you can’t hear the Newsted much, and honestly didn’t really know it was a thing until maybe 10 years ago (Internet, and what not).

    It has to be my ears that ive never heard much bass in many metal bands, outside of something obvious like Tool and Iron Maiden or Cliff’s Anesthesia. Even more particularly bands with two guitarists where mids and high are just generally more audible.

    That's my guess as well. XX would be the roman numeral for 20 and it's been 20 years since the first S&M, so maybe it has something to do with celebrating the anniversary of the first one, as well? Someone on Facebook mentioned the possibility of it being a Black Album deluxe box set in the vein of the Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, and ...And Justice for All. The Black background and grey text seem to support this theory (not to mention it's the next album in line in the discography for the deluxe reissue treatment), but I don't know what "XX" has to do with the black album, as that was released in 1991 (28 years ago).

    Remember when Alice In Chains cancelled their tour with Metallica because Layne was on drugs and James made a big joke at Laynes expense and talked shit all the time about what a bunch of losers AIC and specifically Layne were because they have to cancel tours because of drugs.....Oh the irony

    I'm guessing we're going to at least get a home release for S&M 2: audio, video, etc. I'm holding my breath for some sort of deluxe package, but with the original show(s) and the new one(s). Some sort of all-encompassing release with the 4 shows would be excellent.

    but...weren't Metallica in the audience for their Unplugged? "Friends don't let friends cut their hair" and all that? what's the timeline on these two events?

    It turned out to be festival dates. Either they are really optimistic about James' chances at getting himself in one piece by next year, or they are very bound to the contracts they signed before all this happened.

    Man, who would you want to see front the band if they have to perform without him?

    Glad I'm not attending any of the US festivals next year. I mean... 1 night of Metallica? Sure, I can dig it. Not the biggest 'tallica fan in the world, but I can sit through 1 headlining night. If I'm going to a multi day festival, I don't want to see the same Headliner twice. That's just me though. Awesome for mega Metallica fans though.

    1 - Corey Taylor
    2 - Matt Tuck (Bullet for My Valentine)
    3 - David Davidson (Revocation)

    I am not a big Metallica fan at all but these fest would decently be the cheapest and most enjoyable way for me too finally see them. I can not sit in nosebleed due to heights and those were like the price of a festival ticket that lets.me see them twice. I am really considering trying out Louder than Life (I believe you can camp and that make the trip cheaper too). I've been to ROTR twice in the past and it was a blast but think I might be going to Vegas for Aerosmith in May, then I started thinking how cool it would be for one of the fest to get Aerosmith and NIN to go with Metallica and make a Woodstock 94 throwback,lol.

    So, what's the deal with the hi-res releases added to various platforms last week? Are these the same as what's been available from the official store?

    AIC Unplugged came out in 96, so maybe either late 95-early 96

    An mp3 download card is the "whoops, forgot it's my son's birthday! I'll stop at Dollar Tree and pick him up something..." of music downloads.

    It would be pretty awesome for them to release S&M on blu-ray at the same time just so you can have both.

    Seriously, how is Orion NOT on one of the S&Ms. Song seems like it would be perfect for what they’re trying to accomplish there.
