MORE FOOTAGE OF METALLICA IN THE STUDIO GIVES US MORE POINTLESS SH*T TO ARGUE OVER
I have a confession to make: the first time I heard the riff for “Frantic,” it was on that otherwise abysmal MTV Icons bullshit (you remember – Avril Lavigne and Slumk 4182 butchering your favorite Metallica classics), and I thought it sounded pretty good. Stripped of the shitty lyrics, terrible production, and interminable 27 hour running time, the song actually might have had something to it; of course, when I heard the final studio version a few months later, I threw up all over my shoes, skipped to the next song, and then threw up again.
My point is this: at the end of the day, we can’t judge the new Metallica album based on little clips of songs. Until we hear it, we won’t know for sure whether or not it sucks (although let’s be real, kids, it probably will suck).
Still, that shouldn’t stop you all from the fun of analyzing and dissecting yet another video from the Mission: Metallica site (I’d link to it, but I don’t want to) until you’re blue in the face. So… enjoy.
