Really? My reaction the first time I heard a Death Magnetic song was "What is this shit? It's awful."

Death Magnetic felt like a sterile attempt to cash in on the "thrash revival" craze or something. Even St. Anger felt like a more genuine album.

As for Pantera... Power Metal was their best album. I like Cowboys a bit too but don't really care much for the rest. Never have.

I thought it was awful once the chunky intro was over... that's when I changed the station.

I think some of the stuff off of Death Magnetic wasn't that bad. Cyanide for one wasn't that bad, but The Day That Never Comes just sucked, to me.

I thought death magneticb was ok. I liked it more than load/reload and it was miles better than stanger. ("I'm gonna sting yew wiff mah stanger"). At least they're back to playing fucking RIFFS.

Death Magnetic is an ok album. I remember liking a few tracks off it. It is a far cry better than anything they had released in like 18 years and it was actually a metal album, so I give them some credit for that.

I don't think I found Death Magnetic quite as distasteful as you did, but I generally agree with you that St. Anger did feel more genuine, even if it was stupid. I own both, and don't feel any motivation to listen to either.

Honestly, I think Megadeth's recent output is miles better than Metallica's.

I would agree with this. They've earned SOME redemption

This is pretty much what I thought. My Apocalypse, Suicide and Redemption, and The Judas Kiss are the only songs that I've bothered listening to more than once. I really wish that The End of the Line was worth a shit. The New Song was so promising.

Metal rules!!!

Big metal-head here, and I've been one since I was wee lad. I started out on bands like Guns N Roses, Skid Row, Metallica, Megadeth, Nirvana, and Pantera and have branched out since. Now I listen to most any metal as long as it's not bluntly Satanic. And I hate that rap-metal hybrid crap like Korn and Limp Bizkit.

Anyways, some favorite bands: 3 Inches of Blood, All That Remains, As I Lay Dying, Demons & Wizards, Disturbed, Mudvayne, The Scorpions, Skid Row, Ratt, Amon Amarth, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, Metallica, In Flames, etc.
