James Hetfield howls the title of this review at the very beginning of 'Broken, Beat and Scarred'. Pretty appropriate if you ask me after the disappointment that was St. Anger. So yes, Death Magnetic. It's a stonking album, one that clearly puts Metallica right back on the top of the metal tree...

“Death Magnificent!”

published 12/10/2008

ProA return to form, but with better production

ConsNone

I very rarely make money on music reviews on review sites such as this… this is because when I finally get round to writing a review, someone else has already done it! Unless, of course, I write a review on a less 'popular' band. So… knowing I will probably make about 8p on this review, here...

“Death of Metallica”

published 05/03/2012

ProNot many, to be honest!

ConsToo many to name

"Death Magnetic" is the 9th studio album by American metal legends, Metallica, released in 2008 and produced by Rick Rubin. The line-up for the album was James Hetfield (vocals/guitar), Kirk Hammett (guitar), Robert Trujillo (bass) and Lars Ulrich (drums). Where do I start with "Death Magnetic"...

ConsNone for me.

It's been a while since the Metallica boys have released an album, and in Death Magnetic they have certainly come back with a vengeance. The album was released on 10th September 2008 and marks Metallica's Ninth Studio album and their first with new bassist Robert Trujillo. The album was well...

“Lame album of all”

published 16/10/2008

ProNothing but another album

ConsNothings new in this album thats bad

I must precede this by noting that I have loved every Metallica album all the way up to Reload. I am not one of the people who thinks Metallica lost their magic after the black album. While a departure from their original style, "Load" and "Reload" were brilliant albums with great songs that seam...

Metallica move on from the disappointing "St. Anger" to their new release "Death Magentic". Out go the dustbin lid drums and lack of solos, in are well crafted songs, some great solos from lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and far better production than "St. Anger". This album has more in common with...

It took me a while to get up the courage to buy this album, because, as most dedicated Metallica fans probably felt, I felt scared, in a way, as this was really a make or break record for the metal legends, following the disappointment of St Anger. However, when the heavy riff of That Was Just...

Simply put, Metallica are back and they are bringing the heavy with them. After what was rather shaky ground with 2003's St Anger, the biggest metal band in the world return to form with this gem. The album is filled with epic tracks, from the beautiful single, The Day That Never Comes, through...

“Pleasant return to form.”

published 19/03/2009

ProIncredible riffs & solos.

ConsLack of substance in the lyrics.

With "Death Magnetic", Metallica are back and in blistering form. Gone are the angst driven Nu-Metal riffs and music sans guitar solo's in the form of "St. Anger", this is pure thrash, well as thrash as Metallica are probably ever going to get this side of 1986. This album is spectacular if you...

Had high hopes for this album and had been getting excited about it for absolutely months. I only got more hyped when they releases The Day That Never Comes which showed a rather "...And Justice For All" sound to it, with a bit more rock though. Fantastic. Its only after listening to the entire...

After the disappointment of S.t Anger and countless shows across the world i was expecting death magnetic to be another poor sounding 'new metal' type of album which didn't particular interest me but, on the 12th of September 2008 came this 75 minute extravaganza of a metal album that literately...

I really like Mettalica songs so this review is about it! It was already anticipated to be a North American band moved away from the direction it had followed since the Load and return to a sound heavier and hard on larger and more complex songs, as the theme of the album just see the name, Death...

Wow, where to start. As an avid metallica fan i was eagerly awaiting the release of their new album, especially with the dissapointment that was St. Anger and let me tell you the wait was worth it. Gone are the tinny drum sounds and cheesy lyrics from songs like invisible kid and back are well...
