"And lars? WTF is with the trash can lids for snare drums dude?"
I thought the exact same thing when I listened to the album - "what are those, fucking garbage cans?" It really ruined the entire album for me.
One of my favorite recent songs is "Implements of Destruction", by Chimaira. The style of the song is obviously influenced by Metallica, yet it sounds far superior to anything on St. Anger. It sounds like what St. Anger should have been. Metallica's older stuff was great, but the seem to have lost their edge. As far as I'm concerned, St. Anger can't compete with some of the newer metal bands such as Chimaira, Lamb of God, Shadows Fall, and Killswitch Engage.
