Yesterday, Metallica generously uploaded another track from Death Magnetic to metallica.com. The song is titled “My Apocalypse” and is the third song from the upcoming release that we have been exposed to since August 8.
“My Apocalypse” has an …And Justice For All feel to it; the intro guitar riff and drums summon the evils heard in “Harvester of Sorrow.” The song is fully equipped with thrash guitars, fast drums, and ferocious vocals. There is also a start-stop tempo in the middle after the shredderiffic Kirk Hammett solo. James Hetfield’s voice sounds better than ever on this track, or at least the best since the Black Album. 8/10
So far, Metallica is batting 3 for 3 [“Cyanide,” “The Day That Never Comes,” “My Apocalypse”] leaving us fans really excited for the release of Death Magnetic on September 12.
On a side note, the band has been using the internet in a very appropriate manner to promote this record and have been showing more care than ever to their fans since the Napster debacle. Cheers!
