Metallica Agonistes


After letting a handful of British music reviewers have an early listen to six-tenths of the upcoming new album, Metallica's lawyers have gone batshit with cease-and-desist orders when those reviewers posted, um, reviews of what they heard.

And the reviews were, by all accounts, positive.

WB blames Jason Newsted. Ever since he left, there's been no real-world ballast to keep the S.S. Jamesandlars floating right side up. First St. Anger, now this. By the time the new album arrives anywhere, what's left of the Metfan base will have dissolved.

Hmm. Maybe that's why Jason left in the first place....
