i have recently heard a rhumour that Metallica are going to be coming to new zealand sometime, probably next year...

Yeah I'm hearing rumbles of NZ gigs next year.

BETTER BE CHCH THIS TIME

I missed out in 1993 on account of the fact I was only 15 at the time and had no money, so had to wait until 1998 on the Pour Re-Touring me tour when they did Welly.

Chch would be a phat place to host the Tallica boys!
not sure if the stadium would be big enough to hold all the fans though,
it was only just big enough for Disturbed on Friday night ( F*#ken sweet gig by the way!!!!!!).

there would be a real good atmosphere if the gig was to be held in chch, not to mention a psychotic mosh pit Twisted Evil .

haha i was only 4 in '93 ! But there is no way that i am going to miss this one!

lets hope that they come for their own concert and not big day out, cause that would rob us of the spectical that is a live Metallica gig!!!!!!!

They're a shadow of their former selves on stage now I reckon, but still it'd be great to see them again.

Poor old Hetfield sings with NO grunt now in order to preserve his voice. I haven't heard a good live recording come from those guys since 1997 (B-sides to Mama Said - James is real drunk and is having a great time!)

Still, my favourite band ever, I'm allowed to pick them to bits! Laughing

yea you're right they arn't the metallica they used to be, yet they still manage to rock out some good music.
their new album 'Death Magnetic' reminisins of the tallica of old with heavy rifs and spine tingling solos! plus lars finally starts to play the drums again, they way he used to.

its obvious that they are being a bit causious with the way that they play these days. it would be bordering on murder if they attempt to play some of their old stuff such as some work from the justice album. hopfully they sort it out and get back to the tallica of old before they arrive here, because i've been waiting to see them live for as long as i can remember!

if they put out anything like they did on the cunning stunts world tour then we will be in for some insane gigs Mr Green

I actually think he's gotten worse. His double-kick work is sloppy. The fast stuff you can hear his kick-drum getting messy and ahead of himself, and the rest of it is just un-inventive to me. James and Kirk are so tight on this album that it shows up Lars (like I've said before, Lars has openly admitted he's got no interest in drums anymore, he doesn't even play at home for fun). He's an "arranger" and businessman now. And really starting to look like Phil Collins Laughing

That setup was AWESEOME. That was the stage they used the same year they came to NZ, but in Welly/Aucks it was just a reload backdrop curtain and some pyro's... only about 4,000 punters came to the Wellington show, and 80% of the people I talked to over that day/evening were from either ChCh or Dunedin.

When I saw them (front row, of course!) they played:
So What
Master of Puppets
King Nothing (Includes an excerpt of 'The Outlaw Torn')
Ain't My Bitch
Sad But True
Fuel
The Memory Remains
Bass/Guitar Doodle
Nothing Else Matters
Until It Sleeps
For Whom the Bell Tolls
Wherever I May Roam
One
Kill/Ride Medley
Low Man's Lyric (Acoustic)
The Four Horsemen (Acoustic)
Motorbreath (Acoustic)
Creeping Death
Enter Sandman
Battery

Best night of my life. Ever.

gee king that setlist aint so hot, latley most of their set (bar death magnetic) has been black album or earlier, although i LOVE low mans lyrics. i must say death magnetic has grown on me so much. still think the best track is my apocalypse and worst one is cyanide.
if they come i will travel anywere in NZ to see them. i still recon it will be at this rock2??? event but we will see.

Nah I liked the Setlist... and since I like the Load albums, double bonus. (good solid hard rock songs... at least within their current technical boundaries too!). Stuff like King Nohting was just STOMPING live. Really pounding.

I'm putting my $$$ on the rock2???? gig. *crosses fingers for ChCh*

i really like load (actually better than black album) but reload, while having sevral good tracks just doesn't do it for me but i spose they were touring on that album so it's to be expected. also looking at their current setlists there is quite a lot from death magnetic. take this one for example from two nights ago:

01. That Was Just Your Life
02. The End Of The Line
03. The Thing That Should Not Be
04. Of Wolf And Man
05. One
06. Broken, Beat And Scarred
07. Cyanide
08. Frantic
09. Until It Sleeps
10. Wherever I May Roam
11. For Whom The Bell Tolls
12. The Day That Never Comes
13. Master Of Puppets
14. Blackened
- - - - - - - -
15. Stone Cold Crazy
16. Jump In The Fire
17. Seek and Destroy

most surprising is NO ENTER SANDMAN!! LOL. they need to remove cyanide and broken, beatn, scared and replace them with judas kiss and my apocalypse. i've always dislike until it sleeps a lot. i think they need one more off master and ride and add hero of the day and that setlist will be all good!

yeah i came up from dunedin. did you que outside the venue from 12 midday for that? Was cool how they started the gig with all the house lights on then went into it on the second song. I rememebr head like a hole getting told to F*k off after every song they played before metallica came on.

Yeah, poor guys. They looked like they knew they were gonna get lynched when they came out but soldiered on regardless. Good band, but a bad choice of opener.

yeah but i think this is a some pre advertisment advertisment. the interview with rob was conducted by 3 news. seems a lil odd that they would take an interview to a country that they arn't gonna tour. say fiji for arguments sake, i couldnt imagine them doin an interview with fijian news if they weren't planning on heading there. i remember that tool did the same thing before coming to bdo.

Perhaps. I think it's more because it's selling by the truckload more than anything else.

Apparently little Lars has been crapping out during songs, and apologising to auciences No, No! That little twerp needs lessons, urgently.

About the terrible production (apparently the guitar hero version sounds better)

http://blog.wired.com/music/2008/09/does-metallicas.html

From the guy who mastered the album (in response to an email about the so very terrible "loud" mastering.

Quote:

I’m certainly sympathetic to your reaction, I get to slam my head against that brick wall every day. In this case the mixes were already brick walled before they arrived at my place. Suffice it to say I would never be pushed to overdrive things as far as they are here. Believe me I’m not proud to be associated with this one, and we can only hope that some good will come from this in some form of backlash against volume above all else.
