Rust in Peace rocks, "tornado of souls" is my favorite track. I saw them live on the Youthaneasia tour, but it wasn´t too good, my mates saw them with
AC/DC last summer and it rocked they said. Shame that they don´t play anymore....

Metallica never was a thrash metal band.
It was considered underground at the beginning, cos' it was quite rude for the time.
They have made some thrashy songs like "Fight fire with fire" or "Battery".
But "Kill'em all" was not a thrash album, no no no.
Of course, that's always the same problem with labels. It depends on what you want to put under it.
But if you listen to Soulfly, Pantera, Slayer, Sepultura, you will find Metallica and Megadeth really soft.

I used to like Megadeth a few years back, but I guess I've "softened" my musical taste. . .adulthood I guess. They were a great band; I use the word "were" because I havn't really heard any of their newer material, and I guess the last record I really listened to was the one including Symphony of Destruction. . .I know, old and I don't even remember the name of the record. . but it was a great record. Can anyone tell me if they have the same lineup as back then? I really loved Marty Friedman's guitar works.

Brianhames, ever heard of In Flames?
I'm not some Metallica hater. Kill 'Em All, Ride the Lightning, and Master of Puppets were great albums. I have a Metallica poster in my room at home. I'm just saying, they're nothing compared to whats out there, they've been a joke ever since Load.

Flyf15 - I totally agree! The Black album was the last decent album, Load was average at best. Obviously something went wrong.. I don't like their attitude. I mean they've changed their style completely to stay popular with the younger generation, and then the whole sueing of whatever it was ... grrr!!!
There are lots of great bands still, and lots still giving out great Metal songs. Just look at 90's bands like Nevermore and Stratovarius (formed in 1984 I know), yay!
