Branded why do you LOVE this band so much? It must be love because you're alway's got something to say about them both good and bad but mostly bad. You and I have gone at it on a few issues but on this one where is your common sense approach???
Not everyone can afford or attend a Metallica concert. These dvd's give many of us the seat and sound quality that would make it just a sgood as being there. Metallica are on the move not sitting still. It seems you'd rather see the sitting still or not exist. Either way The live in concert dvd concept in far from dead or gone...Dude have you seen the level of production of the current Metallica tour?? It's awesome! From the lights...to the 50 foot flames shooting up from the stage floor. Your criticism becomes more and more baseless each time you post.
Meatllica is a bad azz band!! A great band with the song's and success to back it all up!! Now my question is when do we all hear your new cd ohhhh and when are YOU GOING TO RELEASE A DVD?
Were all just dying to hear this recorded masterpiece you are keeping from us.....See how stupid sounds.....STOP IT!! jUST F'N STOP IT.
Oh yea, the band you love to hate most will be performing on FUSE saturday night....with...hold up....Both Jason and Rob on bass.....i can smell the hatred coming!! Again, just stop it....YEA METALLICA IS FILTHY RICH, THEY ALSO WAS ONCE AS POOR AS YOU OR ME....HATE ON THE MUSIC BUT THE LIFESTYLE COMES WITH THE SUCCESS. how much cash they have shouldn't mean anything to you....it's there's and they didin't steal it!

While I am a Metallica "fan" (if you could say that) on some level, I think there's enough Metallica live footage on DVD already. Besides, how many NEW live tracks can there be since they never play anything from St. Anger (for obvious reasons). And, Branded does have a point in "MORE RETIRMEMENT $$$$". What other point could they possibly have in releasing more live stuff?

I for one would be a first day buyer of the " Metallica-Branded" Live DVD! Go for it brother! There might just be a market for this. You know all of the sheep would buy it to hear what you had to say about their beloved band and then come out in droves to protest it. Sounds like a money maker to me.

This Notion of retirement money needed is absurd at the least. In the Some KOM movie. There is a scene where Lars goes off to sell some of his OWN art collection. It was confirmed at the auction he was leaving with like 10 million dollars for his pieces.
The amount of money these guys have is probably a lot more than any of us could imagine. My point is, So F'n What!! With the number of live gigs they do they've earned every penny. The real fact of the matter is when it's announced that the big rock show is coming, most that can afford it go and the rest look at youtube and await cool stuff like complete concerts on dvd. I must say the current Death Magnetic Tour appears to top all previous in terms of production and visual appeal. It's so obvious these guys want us all to be blown away whether on dvd or in person.
Branded, I think your theme here is this notion of greed perhaps??? Well I can honestly say it would be great if they dropped the ticket prices to include more poor people like me. I'm willing to pay 30 to 40$$ max like the old day's, but the average now is like 50 to 60$$. At the same time none of us have any idea what the damn coffins in the ceiling cost or the salary to the small army to keep it all going. I personally don't think it's greed but more like the reality of current business in Metallica. I don't think these guys are AS concerned about who can afford them like they were before Justice came out. Back then it was The $19.98 video and the 5.98 cassette..Those day's have passed.

AND THATS HOW WE FEEL ABOUT METALLICA NOW...SO WHAT THEY ARE TOURING, SO WHAT THEY ARE RICH, SO WHAT SO WHAT SO WHAT...(GOOD SONG TOO)...I JUST CANT WAIT FOR THIS BAND TO DIE. EACH TIME A MEMBER OF METALLICA DIES, ILL HAVE A PARTY TO CELEBRATE!! GO AHEAD HATE ME FOR WHAT I JUST SAID, I DONT CARE. JUST AS THEY DONT CARE ABOUT THEIR METALLI-FANS. YOU ARE CORRECT VO, THE PRICES HAVE GONE UP. BUT AS YOU CAN SEE THEY ONLY CARE ABOUT GETTING MORE MONEY FROM THOSE WHO CAN ACTUALLY AFFORD GO ( MOSTLY RICH PREPS WHO GOT INTO METALLICA WITHIN THE LAST FEW YEARS, NOT THEIR REAL FANS WHO HAVE STOOD BY THEM SINCE THE 80S AND MAY NOT BE ABLE TO AFFORD THE $$).

DOES METALLICA NEED SUCH A HUGE SHOW EACH TIME? NO! POINTLESS SPENDING OF MONEY. GUESS THEY SPENT UP TOO MUCH WITH THEIR NEWEST PILE OF DOG-SNOT. NOW ITS LETS MAKE A DVD OF STUFF THAT THE WORLD HAS SEEN SO MANY TIMES ALREADY. ""O JAMES, LETS PUT MASTER OF PUPPETS OUT THERE FOR THE 3 MILLIONTH TIME!!!!""


JAMES PLEASE BEAT THE SH1T OUT OF LARS AND GET BACK THE ENERGY YOU ALL LOST WHEN LARS DESTROYED METALLICA!!

I have been an avid visitor, sometimes poster to this site for a few years now. There used to be a good degree of healthy debate and discussion here, which I enjoyed reading and occasionally commenting on. However, as soon as this brandedcfh420 joined up and started spouting his inane opinions, I very quickly noticed the level of intelligence take a dramatic nosedive. This guy is dragging us - and this site - all down to his level and it makes for some very pointless reading. Just gotta ignore him - he won't go away, but I hope it lessens the amount of cr*p he spends writing here.

In MINOR.. defense of Branded, I believe there is a pert of him who appreciates the Metallica he once knew. In his eyes they're money hungry bastards now! If that's how he chooses to see it, I can live with that. Again, I do agree with the theory there is no consideration given to the fans who don't make 60 grand a year now and can afford to spend $200 on a single night of tickets and Tshirts. Hopefully, they will decide to scale back the pricing. It would be good for us poor folk.

My reality is Metallica has endured through 28 years, Four bassist, Three lead guitarist's(Lloyd Grant B4 Mustaine who hardly gets mentioned) and the tragic loss of a bandmate. After all of that they go in to the Rock Hall while still on the road, recording and very viable. Later on tonight like millions of others I will be glued to the set in absolute respect and honor for this band I started with consistently in 1987 at the age of 15. For me, it was a three way combo of Cliff Em All, Garage Days Re-revisited and Master of Puppets and I've been riding this Metallica train since!

Speaking of video, Branded It was Cliff Em All that visually showed me and many others how firece and intense this band is live! Before Cliff Em All unless you had seen the guys live you had NOTHING TO GO ON. Back then I hunted for bootleg's on VHS of the Damaged Justice tour. Then in 1992 I managed to get a seat in the Tapers Section they reserved for fans and taped about 45 minutes of that show. Seeing Metallica live has alway's been something not to miss whether it's dvd or in person. I welcome any new concerts on Dvd mixed in 7.1. With the proper home equipment the audio can sound as good as being there. This Dvd will welcomed with smiles!

Tonight will be an awesome night!! Especially for those of us who went to high school with this band and has been there without deviation. The music of Metallica is what has sustained them to this point. Even when they tried to look different briefly (Those Darn Load Transy Days!!) the music still answered the call. I alway's knew they would get in the Hall on the first available year they could..Tonight is about the love for all the music, and all of Metallica, Nothing Else Matters!!
My dvd recorder will be rolling in HQ! Peace and enjoy the show, I am for sure.

Hey, Brother B.....I have to say thanks. I'm not gonna point fingers at Branded as I have been as quik to spout some negativity as anyone, so's all I'm gonna say is that from this point forward I will think before I spew and encourage every visitor or member to do likewise. Too many people think the metal community are generally a bunch of socially stunted 'tards, so let's not prove them right.
And, for the record, if having a soft spot for 'tallica (a band that heavily influenced my teen yearsas well as my 20's) makes me a "sheeple", then "baaaaaaaaaaaaa".

gutter, i was a metalli-sheep back in the 80s and 90s. then i saw them for the fake a$$ greedy b1tches they are. anything they do now revolves around the money, and not everything they say its about. they can claim to be in it for the fans, the music, etc. but the fact is that all metallica cares about is the money. its not like they are not multi-millionaires already!! so go on gutter, say what you want, im still laughing and will still talk smack on this band of merry has-beens!!!!

McTallica deserves everything and more that Branded lays on them. Branded's no-spin commentary is usually the only reason I bother with these inundating trivial McTallica "news" blurbs. I only checked this one out because an alliance between McTallica and France seems to make so much sense.

Its not about the $$$ or retirement, and no they don't have too many DVD's out. They don't have enough! I love watching live music, and Metallica are great musicians. I love to see the equipment they are using, how they play different songs, what guitars are used, effects, etc. Its great to have access to this kind of stuff. There are many that want to see it. If you don't like it, don't buy it. And don't comment either, no one wants to hear it.

Omegosh you guys. Give it a rest lol.

Me <;3 you Metallica. I never really saw this DVD coming out as a huge issue, and I dont really mind it, I dont like 'live dvds' so I wouldnt really buy it anyway.

So many people believe Metallica is selling out / have sold out (I'm the person sitting in the middle, trying to believe it's not true), but I will continue to listen, because it's the music I love. It makes me kind of sick to see them on MTV shows.

Other than that, I dont care about the amount of money they have. When you start doing things for the money, and not the music, is when your fans start caring (and I'm not making a decision on which they do it for. I, of course, know nothing!)

It all makes me very confused, blergh. :)
