I finally submerged to reality and listened to Metallica‘s new release “The Day That Never Comes” their first single from the upcoming Rick Rubin produced Death Magnetic. I sampled it on my way to work this afternoon thanks to Sirius radio’s Hard Attack and for the most part liked what I heard. When I came home I went to Metallica’s website to sample it again. The song was just about 8 minutes and honestly all I could think of is that the song could have been sped up just a tad and it might have sounded even better. It does not sound like anything from St. Anger (thankfully) but does not necessarily go all the way back to their roots. It’s got a good sound to it especially for a band that has been around for so long.
I guess I’ll have to wait until 09/12/2008 when the CD hits stores and will also be legally available to download to hear some more. I admit, I am kind of excited. I just hope I am not disappointed…..
