“Death Magnetic”, released by Metal God Metallica on September 12 straight went to Billboard charts #1 and still holding that place for two weeks now. It was all because of the great anticipation of the whole heavy metal world who just wanted to listen to Metallica and Hetfield’s voice again with new songs after their unsuccessful last released album St. Anger 5 years ago. Did the new album make its mark is the question now.
Variation is how anyone would define this new album. It is full of typical Metallica style songs with surprise tune changes, heavy distortion and fast lead guitar work to add to the pleasure. It takes a little while to get in to the tunes but once it is in your mind, you will simply want to listen to it more and more. Check out the tracks like “That was just your life” with soothing tune, “Broken, Beat, Scarred” an unconventional composition with frequent tune change, “Unforgiven 3”, as usual, a tune that will play in your mind all the time.
If you are the one not trying it out yet, go grab it, it may not be the best Metallica album ever compared to Black, Ride the Lightning and Master of Puppets, but it none the less is a buck full of water to drench the dried throat of Metal mania’s world wide. Bangladeshi Metal Bands should definitely learn from Metallica and start practicing harder to add variation and unconventional tune change and hope our local boys will one day give rise to metal revolution.
