Jon... I dont agree with u bout "everything sucked since black"... Load n reload wer not that sh1t, they wer juz nt da 80s thrash... Garage inc. wuz gud but made it clear that sh**allica z out of music so they covered others' songs, s&m wuz a masterpiece but simply nothing new... I think we all agree that st anger suçked ants balls, a clear evidence that fagtallica is out of ammo... So the 9th album -if released- will suck dildos too...

hail 2 da old metallica

then why ya' all fags show up here if ya' don't like metallica?did they ever say that they play thrash metal...they play metal and are doing it still...they create good music...that's why they form the greatest band in the world...they aren't sh** like 'deth and maiden who play the same sh** again and again and their musical ability is limited...metallica is versatile...just get outta this usual thrash-riff-solo kinda' songs...

Still can't get over everyone bagging St Anger. Easily their best post Black album (not saying much mind); there are some balls heavy Puppets/Justice riffs in it, and if it's the sound you can't get over, just watch the DVD version of the album instead.

While we're on the topic of Megadeth, I pose a question:

"How big of an a$$hole does one have to be in order to get kicked out of METALLICA!?"
I think Dave Mustaine knows!

hey, im a metallica nd megadeth fan. if i had to pick b/t the two, however, i would have to go with megaddeth. for all those who say they suck, listen( and i mean really listen) to their catalog. megadeth has been about 80 percent more speed/thrash faithful than metallica has been. mustaine is an a$$hole , but has made great efforts in recreating thrash metal. not much can be said about metallica's latter contributions. albums like killing is busniess and rust in peace are great and should be given much respect. yes dave mustaine is an a$$hole, but he is in no way a failed musician.

p.s. if you see anyone "hardcore dancing" bea t teh f*** out of them. mosh on their faces.

Didn't say he wasn't talented with a great band. Just putting into perspective how much of a d*** he must be, considering we ALL know to the extent Lars is,let alone all of metallica combined, and THEY kicked HIM out. I already know, I've seen/met the guy outside of a concert setting(Mustaine), and he is an egotistical jerk, bigtime a$$hole. Makes good music though imo. Still, early Metalliica was far superior. Current Metallica sucks so hard however that Megadeth ends up better in the long run anyway. At least for me.

brandedcfh420 is the next LordAgony. His/her apparent devotion to ragging on Metallica is pretty much on parallel with LordAgony's constant ragging on Korn. Metalunderground.com will be on the news again as another pathetic soul is being dragged away by the FBI for saying something stupider than usual.

You heard it here first...

Uh... With one big thing missing Public Servic Announcement; Branded does not (and to my own recolection) threaten that he is going to kill sh**allica or their fans. That is what got Adrian McCoy in trouble with the F.B.I.

I refuse to make fun of my favorite band (for gods sake Ride the Lightning was my first metal cd), no matter what kind of sh** they are doing now, so I'll call Lars a douche for saying on Some Kind of Monster that guitar solos are basically not cool anymore. I haven't listened to Garage Inc. (entirely) but way to make the classic Last Caress by the Misfits sound like sh**. They played it live before and sounded good but here it sounds god aweful.
