There are a few songs on Death Magnetic I like. "End of the Line", "Broken, Beat and Scarred", and "Cyanide" are all pretty good (the latter in particular has an awesome riff and grooves better than perhaps any other Metallica song). But otherwise, I'm not a big fan of the album in general. Production isn't that great, a lot of the songs just seem like random riffs glued together, and the lyrics are pretty awful, as is unfortunately the trend for latter-day Metallica releases.

Also, did we need a third "Unforgiven"? I liked the first two, but c'mon already.

Nice to see someone else who appreciates the Load era.

Korn just released another new song. It's pretty kickass. As much as I think the album art is hot ass I think the album is gonna be killer. Love all I've heard so far.

Yeah, that new Korn song is great. Sounds like the songwriting is better now that Head has been back with the band for a few years.

It's crazy to see just how much the songwriting suffered when he left and then perked up when he came back.

I'm loving the three songs that Every Time I Die released from their new album.

For the record, I also think Load/Reload has a bunch of songs I'd consider among their best. -Outlaw, Bleeding, Thorn, Jack, Mama Said
- Fixxxer, Low Man, Wild Things, Carpe Diem, Devils Dance

Really bloated albums though, cut them down to the the best 8 songs on each and you'd have 2 great albums.

2nd new song from Metallica's upcoming album, Moth Into Flame




That's a f***ing damn good song.


While I'm here, 3rd song from Opeth's new album (which is out this week *cough*and has leaked*cough*)



A prog-rock stomper. Love it.

I LOVE the new Metallica song. It should've been the first single.

New Metallica songs are pretty awesome. Pretty excited about picking it up now.

New Korn has some very strong Untouchables-era vibes with a little bit of Issues thrown in there. They've always been one of my favorite bands, so I'm really excited for this one. "Insane" I think is still my favorite. They're all good in their own rights though. So glad Head is back in the band to give them that heaviness that had been missing.

I've really been listening to "The Blackening" by Machine Head lately. Such a classic already. Even the bonus track "Hallow Be Thy Name" is just an amazing Maiden cover.

I do love the new Korn Song. I've loved all the stuff from this album. It's really a return to form for them. Still, and I've said it a thousand times, I hate that ****ing album art.
