I have a love/hate relationship with Metallica. I like their early stuff even though I think the production on them is pretty bad. Seriously, why did they even bother to record Jason Newstead on Justice? And Lars’ bass drum sounds like a poorly executed farther most of the time. But the songs are really good and Masters of Puppets is a great album. Then the 90s stuff was met, St. Anger is unlisted able, Death Magnetic sounds like crap in addition to sounding like a second rate Metallica cover band.
But this new stuff sounds promising. Moth into Flame sounds like early Metallica.
