  1. Growing up listening and watching this amazing band has truly been an awesome experience. And to still have them jamming together is really special to watch and listen to the best band there is.

  2. Absolutely great way to get the day started.. Love this Blackened… but it’s Metallica, why wouldn’t I ?? Supposed to be in NC now to see my fave band( along with other great groups..) but of course, for very obvious reasons, that will not be happening. Love you Metallica♥ stay safe and blessed

  3. I love Metallica. They are indeed my favorite band of all time. Their music has gotten me through some very difficult times in my life..and I might not be here if it wasnt for their energy driven fast heavy thrash. I have always been a fan even when they went through their Load and St Anger period. Never gave up on them. In fact Load and St Anger is on my playlist when I go listen to them at work as a landscaper. So to hear one of my favorite tunes from And Justice for All in a acoustic chilled out version is very rewarding especially with this pandemic. Stay safe James,Lars,Kirk and Rob and God bless.

  4. I have listened to Metallica for over 25 years now and its been a blessing to follow such a group of characters thru life. Thru the Napster drama, thru the Load days, the St Anger bubble and then to find new life again in Death Magnetic and Hardwired…man what a journey. When it was announced James went into rehab for his addictions, I respected James for having the personal strength to fight his way thru it on his own terms. While the music has in very loose terms “mellowed” they still are the best and hardest rock band out there. I don’t see any other bands making riffs and tunes like Metallica. The sound is there own and speaks to the legions of fans worldwide. This latest iteration of Blackened is amazing. They took the song to another level I didn’t think was attainable and can only be done by Metallica themselves. I look forward to their next offerings – whatever style or genre people want to label it. Mandatory til the end.

  5.
