Just like Hardwired, how do you feel about Metallica‘s second single Moth into Flame?
Now that all of the opinions have been formed here at MetalXtreme we would like to know how metal fans feel about this new Metallica track.
Lars was going to be the vocalist of Metallica? I was sifting through the stockpile of bullshit we call the internet today and something really fucking stupid came across my sights. Before recording Kill Em All, Metallica actually considered Lars to replace James Hetfield. You can read the whole exposé at Loudwire.
Before tracking their Kill ‘Em All debut, the band was discussing the possibility of Lars Ulrich relieving Hetfield of lead vocal duties. “Lars and I planned a lot of stuff. But James wasn’t the most confident of singers. I don’t think he felt comfortable,” the band’s 1982 manager Jon “Jonny Z” Zazula told Metal Hammer (via TeamRock). Opening up all avenues, he went on to reveal, “At one point there was even talk of Lars becoming the frontman. For about five seconds.”
Now, regardless if you love or hate Metallica you cannot deny that they had a significant impact on metal. Whether you feel that impact was for the better or worse is where your opinion actually comes into play. The prolific feature of Metallica is the “YEAH HEY HEYS” so to speak so fuck Lars! The only person that should have ever have replaced James Hetfield is Jason Newsted.
