I haven’t listened to this iconic album in months because I only have it on disc, but I’ve had riffs and drum fills from this record flowing through my head all weekend. This was the first “chaotic” metal I ever heard and it made my ears drool with a satisfaction I never before knew to be possible. I couldn’t even describe it but once I knew it existed, I craved it like I crave red meat. Another page in the story of my passion for heavy music 🤘 side note: I just noticed - possibly for the first time - that all the band members’ names are on the cover! I love it even more.
Here’s “Battery” by Metallica. For those who don’t know, I actually come from heavy rock/metal roots. I used to play a lot of thrash and heavy metal but recently I’ve been trying to regress from those genres as they aren’t as challenging (in terms of theory) as other genres such as jazz and classical. Every so often, I still like to warm up with a really fast metal song just to get the blood pumping and all. The main riff in battery also kicks serious fucking ass, pardon my français ;) #guitar#guitarcover#metallica#riff#battery#masterofpuppets#jameshetfield#thrash_metal
