Shit yes. I bet this album slays. Metallica's got a way of sticking it in people's faces. When people said they were too pop, they threw up a garbage metal album. Now people just say they suck. I bet this album is pretty amazing. I always liked Load and Reload on top of everything else they did prior, but St. Anger was crap (somehow, I think they made it crap on purpose).

Anyway, I'll be at the Detroit date if it kills me.

Yeah, but the Izod center always pusses out and divides the floor into Front and Back GA (Back GA? Seriously? Just put seats there if you're even gonna divide it up). I guess the band wanted to play the Prudential Center so all the big dudes with no shirts kick KICK SOME MAJOR ASS in the pit!

However, is there a parking lot in the Prudential Center so people can drink beer without their shirts on and blast Godsmack from their car?

Its not like they're going to sell out either one of them. The Prudential Center is much nicer.

you don't honestly think that one of the biggest bands in the history of music isn't gonna sell out every show on this tour, come on. there isn't an empty seat at any show they play anywhere in the world.

anyway... here's a new song. its a thousand times better than st anger and theres actually a solo in it... unlike every song on the last album haha.

Dude, are you joking? They haven't been on the east coast in more than 4 years. Of course these shows will sell out.

I read they made an album that would be riffy like Master Of Puppets so I will give it a listen.

I'm surprised they're coming to Albuquerque. It's been a long ass time since they were here. Might be worth going to...

the parking lot is good (i'm not sure if theres tailgating?) but the last time i went to prudential i had my buddies park their car on the side street because we wanted to save a buck
