Re-Load

Genre: Metal; Producer (group): Elektra

Just 16 months after their last effort, the boys are back in frown, gnarling their way through bristly thrashers and slithery ballads recorded during and after the Load sessions. Re-Load continues their journey into stripped-down maturity while toying with fresh melodic textures (hurdy-gurdy on ”Low Man’s Lyric”). It also forsakes some of the punchy hooks and gut-clenching heft that elevated recent Metallica CDs. Still, consider yourself rocked. B
