Top 5 Metallica songs

1.Master of Puppets
Album: Master of Puppets, 1986
This is one of the most  brilliant songs I’ve ever listened to. It has everything I like in a song: strong start, great riffs, a calm middle part and a heavy end. It has very catchy lyrics too.

2.Call of Ktulu (S&M version)
Album: S&M,
I know many of you may not even know this song. It is completely personal. I just love the S&M version of this song. In my point of view, this song is the most amazing instrumental in the history of Metal.  The beginning is creepy and it reminds me an introduction of a suspense film or something. Then the rhythm completely changes as well as the emotions it gives to you.  But the suspense thing is present all along.
As it is a different version here it is:

Album: Master of Puppets, 1986
Personally, I find this track very powerful and intense. Simultaneously, It goes strictly  to my top of old school thrash metal songs.

4.Seek n destroy
Album: Kill ‘Em All, 1983
Normally it is an encore song. Most of the time it is the last song on their shows.  It sounds way more awesome live than the studio version. This mainly happens  because it is a really good song to jam. A live version can easily reach about 20 minutes due to all the jam they usually do. Also they are very interactive while playing this song.

5.Enter Sandman
Album: Black Album, 1991
Surely this song doesn’t need much presentation. Its initial riff is probably the most famous one in the world of music in general. Although the lyrics aren’t that deep, they can be really catchy.

Don’t get the wrong idea, I’m not a “Metallicaholic”! Nevertheless, they were the first metal band I’ve ever listened to. And it’s because of them that I started to enjoy metal as I do. So, I just felt to do a brainstorming about their songs and then I finally came up with this little list.
It was a hard task as they have a lot of good songs.

Keep Rockin’!

CRADLE OF FILTH Reveal Tracklisting

UK extreme metal band, Cradle of Filth, has revealed the track list for the band's upcoming 10th studio album, The Manticore and Other Horrors, due out October 30th in North America via Nuclear Blast Records.

1. The Unveiling of O
2. The Abhorrent
3. For Your Vulgar Delectation
4. Illicitus
5. Manticore
6. Frost On Her Pillow
7. Huge Onyx Wings Behind Despair
8. Pallid Reflection
9. Siding With The Titans
10. Succumb To This
11. Nightmares Of An Ether Drinker
12. Death, The Great Adventure *Deluxe Edition Digipak
13. Sinfonia *Deluxe Edition Digipak

Recorded in eight weeks at both Springvale and Grindstone studios (where it was also mixed by Scott Atkins), Suffolk, the album is a testament to the longevity of The 'Filth, as not only does it reek of Cradle's (feared or revered) brand of delicious metal vamperotica, but this thoroughly modern album places the band firmly in fresh killing fields anew.

The Manticore and Other Horrors itself possesses an altogether new atmosphere for the band, incorporating a heavier, faster NWOBBM punk vibe that is both current and cruel, blended with ornate orchestration and the quirky immediateness of 2000's Midian opus.

"We are getting ready for our first US tour in two years. Rehearsals are going great and this will be the first time we are bringing the whole European stage production to the States. Be prepared for a setlist that contains both classic Kreator and lots of new material. We are very honored to play with Accept, they have been a huge inspiration when we started the band in the eighties. This tour will be nothing but historical! After the tour, we will be shooting a new video for the song 'From Flood Into Fire' and will stay on the road in Europe until the end of the year. In january we will return to israel and after that a full UK tour, a 13 date tour in Russia, plus dates in Japan, Australia and South America are in the making.

New Stone Sour songs - Gone Sovereign/Absolute Zero

A few days ago Stone Sour released two tracks from House of Gold & Bones - Part 1. It will be released on 23th October.

What you guys think? Personally, I have to admit that I don't know much about their sound. But I found these 2 tracks very Hard Rock style.
