I've heard it. I like the longer, more Lou type songs where Metallica is just being a kickass backing band as opposed to doing the Metallica thing.
Honestly, they should stop trying to be metal heads and just play Load-Reload type hard rock. Nothing wrong with that.
When Metallica plays their new music (which is awful) and Lou sings about penises, blood and guts and disgusting sex acts it just begs the question:
The only answer: because they can. Pure douchebaggery at its finest from musicians known for being complete egomaniacs. Maybe they do it to mess with
people's expectations. Maybe they do it because they're uninspired. Maybe they do it because they like to push what we consider accessible music.
Its based on some German play from the 18th century or something.
Pitchfork gave it a 1.0 out of 10. pitchfork.com...
I'll give em one thing. Its definitely something you dont expect. It seems like music most musicians would pass on and throw in the scrap heap.
Its...not bad...not new...just different for these artists and just plain uninteresting
