Song of the Day

Wasting My Hate
Metallica
Load (1996)

Here's my favorite song from Metallica's 1996 album "Load".  This song, and album, were big departures from Metallica's usual style.  Instead of playing fast thrash metal, they were playing mid-tempo rock and heavy metal.  This got a lot of Metallica fans angry, because they were the ones to popularize thrash metal in the first place.  My first time hearing them play like this, even I was like, "The F#$% is this shit?!"  Until I remembered: "Oh right, I LIKE this kind of music.  Silly me."

The album art for Load is a photograph entitled, "Blood and Semen III".         It is cow's blood. . .       And it is the photographer's semen.         Have a nice day knowing this.
