"metallica has finally disappeared up its own asshole for good"
"the band walks the earth like a giant butt, farting humanity in the face"
"an unreasonable mockery of rock music"
"nauseating sounds created by superstars whose innards are comprised of chernobyl" (yeah it sounds pretty weird in swedish too)
"every grade except the lowest would be a lie"

graded: 0 out of 5
"every grade except the lowest would be a lie", haha that is awesome, almost Lovecraftian

you have to wonder whether this is more of an embarrassment to Lou Reed than it is Metallica.

Ooooooooooof


METALLICA has invited more than 22 of its favorite artists from across the music and comedy spectrum to the inaugural Orion Music + More, set to take place June 23-24 in Atlantic City, New Jersey. More than just music, the festival will also feature a lifestyle element showcasing the band's individual interests — and allowing fans to interact directly with each of the band members.

METALLICA will headline both nights, and play its classic 1991 self-titled album in its entirety on one of the nights for the first time ever on U.S. soil.

The festival billing is shaping up as follows:

METALLICA
ARCTIC MONKEYS
AVENGED SEVENFOLD
MODEST MOUSE
THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM
CAGE THE ELEPHANT
FUCKED UP
BEST COAST
HOT SNAKES
TITUS ANDRONICUS
GARY CLARK JR.
LUCERO
ROKY ERICKSON
THE BLACK ANGELS
THE SWORD
A PLACE TO BURY STRANGERS
LITURGY

In a brand new interview with SPIN magazine, METALLICA drummer Lars Ulrich was asked if he was surprised by the reaction to "Lulu", the band's collaborative album with Lou Reed. "It was more spiteful than anyone was prepared for," Lars replied. "Especially against Lou. He is such a sweet man. But when METALLICA do impulsive riffing and Lou Reed is reciting abstract poetry about German bohemians from 150 years ago, it can be difficult to embrace."

Lars also said that he never had second thoughts when sweet Lou came in with lyrics like "I swallow your sharpest cutter / Like a colored man's dick". "I understand that to some 13-year-old in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, it can all seem a little cringe-worthy, but to someone raised in an art community in Copenhagen in the late '60s, that was expected," he said.

The idea that Lou Reed (hell, Metallica themselves at this point) are *allowed* to do anything other than work at the local burger joint depresses the shit out of me. Just once...JUST ONCE...I want one of these types of douchebags to publish an essay detailing how they just happened to be in the right place at the right time and they are, in fact, utterly devoid of skill, talent or education.

they should have recorded that album and bury it in their vault to be released after their death/retirement. it would have become a classic.

to be fair that looks pretty bad ass

and not ironic either

it might actually be his genuine vest from the early 80s??? judging by all the old-ass bands??? but more probably its something their PR department carefully stitched together

I've never seen him wear a patch west in any of the old photos, so no, I think it's a newly made "Kutte".

Yeah that looks pretty spotless. Still cool though.
The ironic part is that it was chosen to appear on a tour celebrating the black album.

I was mega psyched when I read that (for some reason I STILL get like that after being disappointed for more years than I remember) but this just sounds like a bad metallica cover band

it was a pretty bad rendition and rather limp ... and oddly Lars seemed to be most on top of it.
