I agree with those who claim that Lou Reed and Metallica totally sound like two seperate entities moshed together in a very unnatural way, but while most people see this as a major flaw, i actually think of it as a very interesting, unique and unorthodox form of art which serves the sole purpose of reflecting the nature and spirit of the play. The album maintains consistency with its own asthetic approach and its own logic.
They soon change their name to Fang. During this time they play support slots opening for Status Quo and Geordie; a band fronted by a gentleman named Brian Johnson who would go on to replace Bon after his death in 1980. He was the last to audition for Metallica to fill the void that was Cliff Burton.
What makes this album even more fun, though, is the backstory. Originally, Warner label Reprise records was supposed to release the album, but they passed on it claiming it was crap. Without a label, the band released the album on the Internet.
Saying Lulu is unlistenable is like saying black pudding is inedible. It may not be to everyones tastes but it’s definitely edible.
Wilco’s fourth album, released in 2002, reminds us of everything fantastic about college radio. Every track on this album, named after the three-word codes used by short-wave radio operators, shows the eclectic side of Wilco. Everything, from the distorted yet simple tune of “Ashes of American Flags” to the poppy fun of “Heavy Metal Drummer” gives you a new reason to love the band.

Having conquered the Dark Side of the Moon, EMI Records’ beardy staff engineer Alan Parsons decided that what the universe really needed was a prog-rock concept album based on the work of nineteenth-century horror novelist Edgar Allan Poe, narrated by Orson Welles. It didn’t, of course, but an undeterred Parsons soldiered on, swapping prog-rock for vapid AOR in the ’80s. Finally bundled off to play guitar in Ringo Starr’s backing band, he was never seen again. I has been a few years but I got to see Local H an 8th time. It was Saturday June 20th 2015 at the Rock N’ Roll Hotel.

I plopped Master of Puppets in my car cassette player and knew right away what that was.it didn’t interest or concern me. I’d heard brilliant bands use metal tones and make far more original music. Live skull, Rat at Rat R, Mighty Sphincter, Die Kreutzen, Ruin etc.
Even if you weren’t a Metallica fan in ’86, this was one of the most important years of the band’s history. Ooooh!. Yeah heh-ah!. For current Metallica members we’ve saved the best for last!.
