The new Metallica single, 'The Day That Never Comes', has been posted online for streaming at their official website. Personally, I'm a huge Metallica fan and have been waiting god knows how many years for a decent album. This may just be the one I've been waiting for. What do you guys think?

I've been waiting for this album with high hopes for a few years now, mostly because Rick Rubin is producing it. The new song sounds okay to me, but not strong as a first single. Just my opinion, mostly based on the first half of the song.

Good to hear some guitar solos in it, though!

They also have a live version of a new song called "Cyanide" on their myspace site as well:

Shows promise!

I'm with Dexley on the first part of the song though. On the other hand I really started to dig the sound at the four minute mark. Reminded me a lot of pre "Load" Metallica (which I have missed).

Well, the whole album leaked a couple of days back. Initial reacton: Awesome. I'm going to have to sit down with it for a couple of days and give it a proper listen to, but on first impressions, I guess you CAN believe the hype.

I heard an ad on the radio today for the 12/1 show at KeyArena and it was Lamb of God and The Sword.

The new album's here and it's very...meh. It's nowhere near the atrocity that is St. Anger, but you could tell they've taken a major step back, as far as lyrical prowess goes. Now if you were to ignore those odd lyrics and focus on some of those heavy solos, then you've got yourself pretty good album.

It's a thumbs in the middle for me, personally.

Buy it here (The W at Amazon) and put some money into The W. Or buy the Special Edition from Best Buy and get both the album AND the entire album for Guitar Hero 3 (and World Tour, when it hits shelves)!

I never buy metal for the lyrics.

How is it on the Rockin' / Not Rockin' scale?

I bought it today. I love Metallica. I like what I've heard so far. It's better than St. Anger (but I like Metallica so much, that I liked St. Anger). So far, I'd say it is their best album since at least "Metallica" and possibly since "And Justice...".

The songs are pretty long, and a good a mix of fast, heavy and some slower breaks. I think production wise and song-structuring, it is a fantastic change. Very enjoyable so far to me, as I will be playing it in my car for the next week or so.

I read on wikipedia that they recorded around 25 songs with Rick Rubin, so I would expect that in the not too distant future there will be another album put out.

My brother-in-law got the whole album off of iTunes. I'm curious as to how that works? Does the band get a cut of the money paid to do this? They were at war with Napster years ago.

I haven't really been a Metallica fan since Justice (and Lightning is still my favorite), but as with every album since the Black album, a friend picked up a copy and I took a listen. I won't be buying it.

Although it's nice to hear some longer songs, some very tight solos from Kirk Hammett, and some bone-dry production again, there's still a little too much "later Metallica" for my tastes, and, frankly, it's to the point where I don't think Hetfield can write a lyric to save his life anymore.

They can't be rock stars and be who they were when they were in their early twenties. This album proves to me that though they can bring back some of the sound of their glory days, they can't bring back the spirit. And they've not shown any other spirit that would make their music compelling to me.

I don't hold their success against them -- they set out to succeed and they did just that. Some bands in their situation break up and move on in parts, some bands reinvent themselves and continue to find vitality. Metallica was about anger and hunger; and they've run out of both. I've passed them by or they've passed me by, or something.
