Ok I know this is a odd argument and it's been going on for years. There is this old recording of Metallica of the song "Let It loose" but who is actually on lead vocals? Is it really James Hetfield or Dave Mustaine?
You Decide once and for all ATS.

Here is the song, sorry if you cannot view youtube. Let's discuss this! I am sick of all the political crap, so I am trying to start some other discussion.

Definitely Dave.

According to the wiki, Mustaine was separated from Metallica in '81. Given the date on the video of '82, I would have my reservations. I'm not sure if Dave even did vocals when he was with them, did he?

It sure does sound like his style in a very prehistoric fashion. Also, if James voice was slightly sped up, it would have this same tone, which I think is the case.

What do you think?

Thanks, I myself think Dave. I was boo'd off the Megadeth forum years ago over this BTW. Personally I think they could not get past the poor audio quality to accept Dave as the singer.

There is no mistaking either one of their voices. I remember watching an interview with Mustaine where he himself stated as much.

That's him singing. No doubt.

The date is off on the youtube. I have the actual show on a bootleg and it is 1981. But yea I get you on the speed up, but @:56 into this recording the "whoa ohh" sounds like something Dave does and not James? And no Dave was never known to do vocals, that's kinda the point of this rarity.

That is Dave.
How could there be any confusion?

The hooah does sound similar but if you listen to "Hit the Lights" its pretty similar minus the small tonal variance.
For reference:

I am sorry, I don't get what you are saying when you reference back to Megadeth?

Honestly I'm not a fan of Metallica or Megadeth in any capacity but that 100% is Dave. I really don't see how anyone could honestly think otherwise.

I tried to get the earliest recording of Megadeth to reference his vocal inflection.

Is there a recording of "let it loose" that we can be sure where it is James on vocals. That would be a good comparison.

I never answered your question but as it stands, my answer is, I'm not sure.

Doesn't sound like James. Must be Dave.

Obviously Dave is singing.

I'm actually glad that Metallica cut him loose, we got 2 good 80s metal band from that.
Plus his spite song "Mechanix" Megadeth AKA the other(faster) "The Four Horsemen" Metallica

I will concede. After listening to about 6 different recordings, I have to agree. It sounds like Dave. Specifically because of the high notes he tries not to distort (Mustaine thing) whereas James like to distort his fills (the oohs and aah OoOo yeEaaAAheeeyeaaAAs)

My money goes on it being Dave.

James. It's really hard to tell because it doesn't really sound like either of them but it's James. Dave wouldn't have thrown off his style of singing 100% when he started singing.
