Metal Up Your Ass!

Via Pitchfork: New Metallica album to be titled “Death Magnetic.”

I know not to get my hopes my up for this one, after being severely burned by St. Anger (I can still hear the tinny, trash-can drum sound in my darkest nightmares), but if Wikipedia is to be believed, this is a quasi-return to the roots album for Metallica.

So hopefully this means less Lynrd Skynrd covers, more thrashing, more solos, more Metallica’s being incredibly pissed off at everything¬†and playing as loudly and quickly as they possibly can. Perhaps it’s too much to ask for a return to the days of Kill ‘Em All, Ride the Lightning, Master of Puppets, and …And Justice For All, but hey, if R.E.M. has it in them to make one more decent, quasi-comeback album, then hopefully Metallican can too.
