Strange when you consider Risk is talked about as their weakest link in the chain :P

Remember buying the tape ages go and listening to Crush Em and pumping my fist in the air

Oh? Maybe from the metal point of view, it may have been a little subdued.
However, lyrically, its extremely accomplished. Prince of darkness, Time(both), wanderlust....they reverberate.

So i wanted to go the old fashion way and buy a Metallica CD but on Amazon it retails at 2k plus. This seems to be a import version wonder if they will get a local version here. The album seems to be already on Wynk but i want to get the CD but that might take a while i guess. Any idea when the Indian version will be out?

Heheheh. Funny. Metallica look like they belong there.

Totally. Mustaine all the way. Should have stood for president. His vocals - raspy and his shredding - killer!

rust in peace will always stand the test of time as one of the pinnacle albums in metal history. it's just brutal.

as for metallica's lyrics, well their lyrics for welcome home (Sanitarium), fade to black et all are just profound.

pretty sure if mustaine had stuck with metallica the band would have imploded between the egos of hetfield and mustaine.
Agree. It was good that Megadeth was formed. When I was in school, I read countless versions of how Mustaine was left out of the band. Somehow never liked Metallica after that and it stuck....

Well, being one of the founding member of the band one has certain privileges. Mustaine was drinking more and more and hetfield fired him. But years later hetfield checks into rehab and it's all good. no one is fired and no one is punched.

Everyone needed time off and stay with family. jason who has no family decides to take time off by writing his own music. Papa het says no can do. And its bye bye Jason.

Bah!

These guys are not role models so i guess listen to music and enjoy \m/

edit: used to watch all the documentaries on these bands. VH1 behind the music series was pretty good. guess it's time to do a refresh.

They had played a gig at Detroit yesterday. Unfortunately, his last one :-( We will miss his voice, which was one of the best.

Sad news! Takes me back those in-numerous nights in Bangalore city with friends when we used to bust our vocal cords trying to keep up with Chris on one of our favorite songs - Show Me How To Live!

Black hole sun was the song that got me into soundgarden and the soul hitting voice of Chris, then with audioslave... Show me how to live at styx was an amazing experience indeed. RiP.

Dont know if this is the right place to post it. But one of my all time fav bluesman died over the weekend. The bluesmen are falling down like nine pins. If any of you listen to blues, would be nice to see who are your favs

I have been playing Temple of the Dog album (Chris Cornell + Pearl Jam, pretty much) on loop since I got the news. Attempting Chris Cornell's vocals is one of those tasks that makes one feel a mere mortal

Sorry, can't view the video at work. Is that Gregg Allman? He passed away yesterday. One of my favourite bands, the Allman Brothers. He'd been ailing for a while and it was on the cards, but a shock nevertheless.
