I was surfing through Wikipedia and I feel a little guilty that it’s only now that I learned about the title of Metallica’s new album. “Death Magnetic”, according to some is different from their last album “St. Anger”, which I’ve never listened to yet, in all honesty. I’m excited though when I read this:
Quoted from Steve Wiig, Lars’ assistant in an interview by MetClub:
I hear it all of the time. I can’t get away from it. I’m usually in or around the studio with them. There’s some fast stuff, heavy stuff, slow stuff. There’s some stuff on there that sounds a little bit closer to the “Fade to Black” / “Welcome Home (Sanitarium)” / “One“-style. the clean riff thing, a great melody. Verse stuff with the heavy chorus and the ending blows the shit out of the roof. It’s cool to hear them doing that kind of thing again. [...]
They’re like my no. 1!!!! music of all time. I hope I could also hear some pure instrumentals like the ones they did in their 80’s albums.
Let’s just wait and hear… September 2008 is the scheduled release of “Death Magnetic”.
