Re: Metallica&Lou Reed Releasing LuLu I honestly have no idea what it's going to be like. When I first found out about the Reed/'Tallica project, I already assumed that it would be really awesome or really weird. It will certainly be interesting to hear, though. So I'm looking forward to the release. *Is a fan of both Lou Reed and Metallica*

Re: Metallica&Lou Reed Releasing LuLu

Re: Metallica&Lou Reed Releasing LuLu okay i gave it a listen with my mate last night and we couldn't stop laughing, possibly one of the worst things we've ever heard someone commented saying it's metallica broadening their horizons but if you listen it's just them playing their recycled garbage with lou reed "singing" over the top of it

I have to ask' date=' what do you guys think about what they said about Justin Beiber being talented and how they love his "music"?[/quote'] If you don't mind I'm going to be my usual pedantic self and complain about your use of quotation marks here. Justin Bieber doesn't make his own music from the sounds of things...but he has had it composed. (Probably by five writers. Good thing they don't skimp and use only four or it might suck or something.) My point is, what he performs is music. It's crap music, but music nonetheless. If you do mind, then...tough.:D

Sadly I wasn't clever enough to come up with it.
Or any of them, for that matter. As for the question, I couldn't give a rat's ass. As I've mentioned before I can't stand most thrash and these guys are no exception. Wake me up when Realm release a new album.

Oh yes' date=' I hear the album will be titled "Death Of Credibility". Its a concept album detailing exactly how they became such an embarassment.[/quote'] I hear it's going to start off derivative, find its own way with a couple of strong tracks, and then descend into self-indulgent meandering and tired attempts to regain former glory. It's only going to be available in Antarctica, sadly. Advance critics seem to think its main fault is that it's four times as long as it should have been.

I can't wait for the next metallica release. I hope they continue on the same lines as death magnetic. I heard that they wanted this album to be reminiscent of the black album era. Let's hope for a strong release :) sadly I think this may be one of Metallica's final albums, unless they change the gap between each release.

    • Whichever tier of thrash metal you consigned Sacred Reich back in the 80's/90's they still had their moments.  "Ignorance" & "Surf Nicaragura" did a great job of establishing the band, whereas "The American Way" just got a little to comfortable and accessible (the title track grates nowadays) for my ears.  A couple more records better left forgotten about and then nothing for twenty three years.  2019 alone has now seen three releases from Phil Rind and co.  A live EP, a split EP with Iron Reagan and now a full length.

      Notable addition to the ranks for the current throng of releases is former Machine Head sticksman, Dave McClean.  Love or hate Machine Head, McClean is a more than capable drummer and his presence here is felt from the off with the opening and title track kicking things off with some real gusto.  'Divide & Conquer' and 'Salvation' muddle along nicely, never quite reaching any quality that would make my balls tingle but comfortable enough.  The looming build to 'Manifest Reality' delivers a real punch when the song starts proper.  Frenzied riffs and drums with shots of lead work to hold the interest.


      There's a problem already though (I know, I am such a fucking mood hoover).  I don't like Phil's vocals.  I never had if I am being honest.  The aggression to them seems a little forced even when they are at their best on tracks like 'Manifest Reality'.  When he tries to sing it just feels weak though ('Salvation') and tracks lose real punch.  Give him a riffy number such as 'Killing Machine' and he is fine with the Reich engine (probably a poor choice of phrase) up in sixth gear.  For every thrashy riff there's a fair share of rock edged, local bar act rhythm aplenty too.

      Let's not poo-poo proceedings though, because overall I actually enjoy "Awakening".  It is stacked full of catchy riffs that are sticky on the old ears.  Whilst not as raw as perhaps the - brilliant - artwork suggests with its black and white, tattoo flash sheet style design it is enjoyable enough.  Yes, 'Death Valley' & 'Something to Believe' have no place here, saved only by Arnett and Radziwill's lead work but 'Revolution' is a fucking 80's thrash heyday throwback to the extent that if you turn the TV on during it you might catch a new episode of Cheers!

      3/5
