New Metallica song/video, Thoughts?
So what do people think? First new song in 8 years!!
Sounds promising to me,lets hope the rest of the new album is good.

I like it. It's a short song for Metallica; on Death Magnetic the shortest track was already five minutes long.
I'm looking forward to the album. Almost as much looking forward to the new Metallica as to the new Marillion.:)

There is a good sounding live version of the song on Blabbermouth.

Thank you, midnightrider :)
I think it's not bad.
But I'm not that Trash fan,lol.

I don't really like it. Drums sound bad and it's a bit lifeless. It's got that death magnetic sound which was ok but not well suited to faster old school thrash. Don't think rich middle aged men do thrash we to be honest. Overkill, Death Angel & Testament are making better albums than the so called big 4. But there are quite a few young bands doing it with a lot more energy - Lost Society, Havoc, Hatchet, Vektor etc.

Slightly biased though grew up in the thrash era. Loved the first 4 Metallica albums. Black albums was just ok. Liked load and reload but the image and crap they spouted was hard to listen to. St anger was terrible. Lou lou an embarrassment. Death Magnetic ok but they live on the early stuff. Great live still but even they know live the crowd are looking for the early material. So not much hope for the new one.

First off,I am 46 years old and first got into Metallica in 1984 when Ride The Lightning came out....I've hated Metallica ever since The Black album came out in '91....that album and everything they've done since is utterly CRAP.

But the new Track Hardwired does not have Death Megnetic over tones in it as Doom Rider's opinion states...I highly disagree and I too grew up on Metallica, Slayer,Testament ect...

I too have an opinion .....It sounds like it could of been released in 1989 right after .. And Justice For All. The guitar tones sound more like AJFA than Death Megnetic. ?

This song sounds like a cross between the song Damage Master of Puppets & Blackened off AJFA...the attitude/spirit of the Hardwired track has a late 80's vibe. I'd love to bash 'Tallica this time around like I have for the last 25 years but I'm not going for the TREND ....I'm giving credit where credit is due.

And this "production" trend...notice it doesn't matter what band it is...even Saxon...."the production sucks"....the production...the production...the production.... Jesus...these people obviously do not like 80's metal cause for Christ's sake go back and listen to the production of some of some classic LPs...

..the production suffering these days is a mental trend..sure once in a while a band has one but no way this many albums are deemed poor production...Judas Priest's (my favorite band)Redeemer Of Souls is a good example....listen to Defenders Of The Faith's drum tone....its terrible...

..but since its a great album nobody notices it. It sounds like a drum machine for God's sake! Anyways..

Don't like the new Track? Fine. But this IS 80's styled Metallica....even Kirk's solo. Now ....the rest of the album? That could be another story.
