When you think of metal bands, one the greatest that comes to mind right away is Metallica. I’m a metal head myself and one of the first albums i’ve owned was a Metallica album. The group’s first four albums are genius as they continue developing their sound of the ’80s thrash-metal scene. On the flip side, you’ve got the abysmal St. Anger album. It is hands down the one worst Metallica albums. It seemed like a radical departure from the bands roots. The fact that Lars Ulrich added some shitty snare drum for the album’s recording session just made the album fall flat with many fans.
A YouTube user recently decided it was a good idea to combine the garbage can bashing snare from the St. Anger album, and added it to the classic “Master of Puppets” song. What you get is a ear drum puncturing noise that truly ruins classic song. The shitty snare itself was described by Uhlrich as an “abortion” just a year after the St. Anger’s album release. I’m sorry, but I go by the old adage, “if it ain’t broke….DON’T FIX IT”. Listen to the St. Anger version and the original below and let us know what you think.
