2/ #Metallica hatte schon 2016 den Song dazu:
Once upon a planet burning
Once upon a flame
Once upon a fear returning
All in vain
Do you feel that hope is fading?
Do you comprehend?
Do you feel it terminating?
In the end
We′re so fucked
Shit outta luck
Hardwired to self-destruct
In 1989, #JethroTull unexpectedly beat out #Metallica for Best Heavy Metal Album Grammy Award. Frontman & flautist Ian Anderson jokingly responded by saying "the flute is a heavy metal instrument." This song of theirs, Pibroch, is pretty metal to me, though, don't you think? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCUqgdf5iTA

I’m devouring #Metallica ‘s 72 season tour videos with child-like joy (is it a surprise, considering they’ve been with me since I’m 14) - it gives me so much motivation and hope for me running into my 50ies and seeing those guys going into their 60ies and basically playing the tighest fucking liveshows they’ve ever played in their 4 decades of band history. 🖤
Generally, Heavy metal music hasn’t enticed my listening senses like other genres of music. But the song One by Metallica is a rare exception because of the masterful playing, the raw power and intensity of the sound and confounding lyrical imagery. It’s a musical masterpiece. I have listened to other Metallica music and saw their 2004 documentary Some Kind of Monster, but as far as my musical appreciation goes (apart from One) – ‘nothing else matters‘.
One was released as the third and final single from the band’s fourth studio album, …And Justice for All. Written by band members James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich, the song portrays a World War I soldier who is severely wounded—arms, legs and jaw blown off by a landmine, blind and unable to speak or move—begging God to take his life. Where this song supersedes other music is how it conveys this misery by gradually getting more heavy and distorted until the “machine gun” guitar build up (played alongside double bass drums). The song starts off in a soft melodic setting, but it develops through multiple sections into heavier and faster speed metal sounds.
I can’t remember anything
Can’t tell if this is true or a dream
Deep down inside, I feel to scream
This terrible silence stops me
Now that the war is through with me
I’m waking up, I cannot see
That there’s not much left of me
Nothing is real but pain now
Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh, please, God, wake me
Back in the womb, it’s much too real
In pumps life that I must feel
But can’t look forward to reveal
Look to the time when I’ll live
Fed through the tube that sticks in me
Just like a wartime novelty
Tied to machines that make me be
Cut this life off from me
Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh, please, God, wake me
Now the world is gone, I’m just one
Oh, God, help me
Hold my breath as I wish for death
Oh, please, God, help me
Darkness, imprisoning me
All that I see, absolute horror
I cannot live, I cannot die
Trapped in myself, body my holding cell
Landmine, has taken my sight
Taken my speech, taken my hearing
Taken my arms, taken my legs
Taken my soul, left me with life in Hell
Metallica performed One for the 31st Annual Grammy Awards show broadcast from Los Angeles in 1989. The next year, the song won a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance, the first ever to win in that category. In March 2023, Rolling Stone ranked “One” at number 11 on their “100 Greatest Heavy Metal Songs of All Time” list. The song is one of the band’s most popular pieces and has remained a staple at live shows since the release of the album, and is the most performed song from …And Justice for All.

All-Woman Japanese Metal Band NEMOPHILA Rocks Metallica's "Master Of Puppets" 🎎
There's a seismic shift happening in the world of heavy metal, and it’s coming from Japan. NEMOPHILA, an all-woman heavy metal quintet, is gaining international attention with their audacious and electrifying take on some of the most revered songs in the hard rock canon. Their forthcoming cover EP, The Initial Impulse, set to drop this November, is a testament to their rising status in the global heavy metal community. The album features covers of classics by iconic bands like Slipknot, System of a Down, and Limp Bizkit. And they’ve just unveiled a tantalizing glimpse into their newest work—a high-octane cover of Metallica’s “Master Of Puppets,” which is already available on all streaming platforms.
When it comes to paying homage, NEMOPHILA knows how to honor the legends while adding their unique spin to the classics. Their rendition of “Master Of Puppets” is nothing short of breathtaking. The quintet took on the Herculean task of covering the full eight-minute song, injecting their unique brand of energy into the track. It's a daring but thrilling expression of their musical proficiency and their respect for Metallica, one of the bands that has profoundly influenced their own heavier-than-hell take on rock.
The Initial Impulse is not just a cover EP; it's a melodic journey that showcases the eclectic influences and extraordinary skill of one of Japan's fastest-rising metal bands. Due out on November 8, 2023, the EP is an opportunity for the group to demonstrate their distinct and innovative approach to heavy rock, capturing the essence of their inspirations while making a bold statement about their own musical identity.
And the timing couldn't be more impeccable. As NEMOPHILA prepares for a nationwide tour of Japan, the quintet is also gearing up for their first-ever performance at Tokyo’s historic Nippon Budokan—a venue that has welcomed countless metal legends over the years. The stage is set for them to join the pantheon of greats, as they continue to earn a spot in the annals of heavy metal history.

BTW, I really can't recommend #Elisapie's new album #Inuktitut enough. The simple summary is that she translated and adapted a slew of nostalgic faves (#Queen, #Metallica, the #RollingStones, #Blondie, #FleetwoodMac etc) into Inuit. But it's a really cohesive and remarkable series of overall transformations. #music https://elisapie.bandcamp.com/album/inuktitut
Dave Mustaine: "When I was in Metallica, I was kind of playing at Lars’s level, because Lars was still learning to play drums."
