This will be the best Metallica album since 1988.

Metallica in new Guitar World

Metallica is on the cover of the new Guitar World and the article inside has some pretty cool insights about Harwired To Self-Destruct. Seems like Guitar World was one of the publications at the NY listening party in September.

Some highlights:

Lyric snippet:

Hetfield on Dream No More sing:"as the world dies screaming"

Hetfield on Atlas Rise: It's about losing perspective. Sounds like the song is about Internet warriors and desktop activists more concerned with "saving a red-legged frog from extinction than taking care of someone in your own family."

Hetfield on Here Comes Revenge: the song is about revenge with the Cain and Abel story from the bible as a "handy metaphor."

Hetfield on Man(Un)Kind:is about starting over, referencing Adam and Eve. "In the song I'm asking, do you have enough? are you ok with what you have?"

Moth was inspired by the Amy Winehouse documentary.

Spit out the bone is described as being one of their "fiercest" songs.

Hatfield addresses tuning: Playing in standard tuning gives the album a more youthful and urgent feel. Dropping live is easier on vocals.

Kirk: a lot of jazz/blues influences like John McLaughlin and Buddy Guy. He came into this album with nothing mapped out and wanted to capture the spontaneity of the moment.


Some very lucky Fifth Members and Contest Winners, listen to Hardwired...


Lars talks. From Rolling Stone :
Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich spoke with Rolling Stone in a recent interview about the lyrical themes on the band’s new album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct. He revealed, “There’s a lot of dark stuff about relationships. Not just with other people, but the hidden personalities within.”
Frontman James Hetfield told us which songs on the new record contained some of his favorite lyrics: [“You know, for me, lyrically some of the favorite, ‘Moth Into Flame,’ I like ‘Am I Savage’ and boy, I really like ‘Dream No More,’ which is also kind of another Cthulhu reference but in a very different sense (laughs).

Ulrich also said about the disc’s musical style, “Most of the songs are simpler. We introduce a mood and we stick to it, rather than songs we’ve done where one riff happens and we go over here and then over there and becomes a journey through all these different soundscapes.

Thanks for that Rolo, really great read! All I can say is that I'm stoked to hear the new album, and Spit Out The Bone sounds especially enticing!

Metallica-3 Haters-0

This could even be better than the best album since Justice.....

They regained all their hunger it seems.

Great songs so far, the only thing that seems to be lacking is well-structured guitar solos. Still amazing if we compare them to another group we know very well who have their mew album out in 3 days [emoji23]

Love Atlas, Rise! and it's even my least favourite of the three! This album is shaping up very nicely, and it's cool to hear some proper groove and melody on these songs - like the verse riffage on Moth and the Iron Maiden-esque twin lead on Atlas. The streamlining of the songs has helped as well. I personally find DM bloated and difficult to listen all the way through - which is strange considering that AFJA is my equal-favourite album of theirs. I'm hoping there's a couple slower, heavier songs like Harvester of Sorrow, Sad But True and The Thing That Should Not Be.
