Metallica are streaming another entire new song, “My Apocalypse,” here. Of course somebody has already grabbed it and put it on YouTube, so you can also just check it out below.
I am excited for those of you who are excited for Death Magnetic. Alas, I am not. Like “The Day That Never Came,” “My Apocalypse” desperately wants to be a song from …And Justice for All – the beginning owes such a huge debt to “Harvester of Sorrow” it’s not even funny – and fails (and Jesus H. Christ, James’ vocals are irritating on this track). We’ve now heard, in some form or another, 30% of the album, and not one song has gotten my blood pumping. Sad sad sad. I guess I’ll have to wait another couple of weeks to know for sure, though…
