|An amazing song!|
Ok, so this wasn't my first heavy metal song that I had listened to... I enjoyed the music, sure.... But I wasn't really entirely feeling it... And then I was... And then I heard this song one day about 20 years ago... And this song became, (and still is my favorite song of all time!)
|Not only is this song amazing, but the music video is epic!|
That song is Metallica's, 'The Unforgiven' from their 1991 self titled album, also known as, 'The Black Album'... By the way, I have to say that this entire album kicks fucking ass!
Anyway, this song, which was created through Elektra, is a brilliant fucking song that was developed as a method for the band to try something new... And you know what? It fucking rules!
A lot of what modern metal is, is speeding through the song, or heavy bass/drums, etc... That type of music is truly fun, but this is the type of music that I love, what with heavy, distorted verses, and a softer melodic chorus! In my opinion it gives it that toned yet under current of darker torrential music, that all the metal heads I knew then, and probably now, still love!
|James Hetfield just killing it with, 'The Unforgiven' live!|
So if you get a chance to listen to it, check it out! You will be glad you did!
