Metallica has become synonymous with everything great about heavy metal. Without their massive hits crossing over into the mainstream, the entire metal landscape of today would look completely different. Though the band have done many great things for the genre, there are some aspects of the band that have rubbed fans the wrong way over the years.
From their sellout years in the 90's to the supposed dumpster fire that was St. Anger, Metallica fans have had to deal with one of the greatest metal bands in the world having a spotty track record. While the band have returned to their thrash roots over the years, this latest era of the band is missing that certain X-factor that can take their songs from good to great.
There's nothing necessarily wrong with albums like Death Magnetic or Hardwired to Self Destruct, but there are some elements that could be tweaked in the future so the band can wow fans like they did in their heyday.
Given their long lifespan, here are just a few things that Metallica could include on their next album to give us a taste of the awe-inspiring metal machine that we knew and loved back in the 80's.
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
