I agree. Wow. Didn’t think they could still thrash like that. Also, isn’t it the perfect song for this crazy election year (and already the hottest year on record)?
How can this be?! It sounds like thrash… but it’s from Hardrockica!
New (double) album comes out in November. If the rest of the album sounds like this, I’ll actually be looking forward to seeing Metallica in the next Arsies.
Sad but not very surprising: RIP Nick Menza.
In my continuing efforts to make The Arsies the best imaginary metal tournament on the planet, I’ve started work on a new scoring system, which feeds into the First Listens. Now, instead of coming up with an arbitrary rating (0 to 4 stars), I’m scoring an album on multiple criteria. This adds up to a star rating, which hopefully will influence the battles come next January.
