In order to enjoy “Metallica Through the Never,” you really have to like Metallica. I mean really like them. Does this go without saying? Probably, but other than the band’s music and an incredible stage show there is very little else to recommend here. Any attempt at a deeper film is completely lost in all the riffs and drumbeats.


M.DREW:
Speaking of Queensryche songs, if you ever really want to make a serious ‘Ryche fan angrier than all get out, tell him or her your favorite song of theirs is “Jet City Woman.” Watch the reaction. There might even be an eye twitch.

My word.

How to describe a show that's thirty years in the making? An event so domineering it was called, without hyperbole, the largest metal show that the East Coast has ever seen.

The dust has settled from the release of Lazarus A.D.'s sophomore effort, "Black Rivers Flow." After a tour that took the band all across the United States and Europe, the band has a little time off before striking out on a headlining tour in a couple weeks. Vocalist and bassist Jeff Paulick took some time out to talk with Bloody Good Horror. The refreshingly candid frontman gives us his thoughts on the band, their new album, Metallica, dance music, the state of heavy metal, the music business, horror cinema and sports allegiances in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Suffice it to say, we covered a lot of ground in our conversation.

So, despite promising an update on tour "dates" (plural) as late as yesterday, the Big 4 of Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax have released a statement concerning just a single date.

Just one.

Okay, with all the recent "best [blank] of the decade" going on, I decided it was high time I got involved.

This originally appeared in an article under the science section of the Guardian online, and I just plain couldn't let it go by.
