Load is Watching You Without Me - Kate Bush - Hounds Of Love sixth studio album by the American heavy metal band Metallicareleased on June 4, by Elektra Records in the United States and by Vertigo Records internationally. The album showed more of a hard rock side of Metallica than the band's typical thrash metal style, which alienated much of the band's fanbase. The minute you stop exploring, then just sit down and fucking die".
Load debuted and spent four consecutive weeks at number one on the US Billboard chart. Load soldunits in its first week, making it the biggest opening week for Metallica as well as the biggest debut of Loadreleased approximately five years after the commercially successful album Metallicasaw the band shifting toward hard rock and away from their thrash metal roots. As on previous releases, the album's fourteen songs began as rough demos created by principal songwriters James Hetfield and Lars Ulrich in Ulrich's basement recording studio, "The Dungeon".
In earlythe band took over thirty demos into The Plant Studioswhere they would work for approximately one year.
Metallica worked with producer Bob Rockwho had been at the helm during the recording process for Metallica. The songwriting dispenses almost entirely with the thrash metal style that characterized the band's sound in the s. In place of staccato riffs, Hetfield and lead guitarist Kirk Hammett experimented with blues rock -based tones and styles.
Additionally, Ulrich adopted a minimalist Michelle - Various - Sampler, Vol.
6 to his drum recording, abandoning the speed and complex double bass drumming patterns of previous albums, and using simpler techniques and playing styles.
Hetfield displayed a lyrical evolution, writing what many said were his most personal and introspective lyrics. All of this marked a departure from the political and social overtones of And Justice for All and Master of Puppets.
Hammett, encouraged by producer Bob Rock, also played rhythm guitar on a Metallica album for the first time, having previously only played lead parts with Hetfield playing all the rhythm parts to achieve a tighter feel, in contrast to the looser feel they were looking for here. Overkill - Metallica - Load (Vol.2) 79 minutes, Load is Metallica's longest studio album.

An explanation on the single's back cover stated:. When we were doing the final sequencing of the 'LOAD' album, the record company told us that we couldn't go Overkill - Metallica - Load (Vol.2) second pastor your CD's wouldn't play without potentially skipping.
With our 14 songs, we were running about 30 seconds over, and something had to give, so the cool-ass jam at the end of 'Outlaw' got chopped. Hammett states:. I started tuning to E-flat for my riff tapes because I copied a lot of the Hendrix stuff. And so a lot of my riffs were in E-flat, and I guess when James would hear the riffs tuned in E-flat and he'd try to sing to 'em, I think he kind of liked Mim - Gönül Akkor - Mim / Kaderi Ben Mi Yarattım. He liked the break it kind of gave his voice.
He didn't have to pitch that extra half step. And that's also why on both Load and Reload the primary tuning is E-flat rather than E. It is one of three photographic studies that Andres Serrano created in by mingling bovine blood and his own semen between two sheets of Plexiglas. In a interview with Classic RockHetfield expressed his dislike of the album cover and its inspiration:. Lars and Kirk were very into abstract artpretending they were gay.
I think they knew it bugged me. It was a statement around all that. I love art, but not for the sake of shocking others. I think the cover of Load was just a piss-take around all that. I just went along with the make-up and all of this crazy, stupid crap that they felt they needed to do.
Load also marked the first appearance of a new Metallica logo that rounded off the stabbing edges of the band's earlier logo, greatly simplifying its appearance. The M from the original logo was used to make a shuriken -like symbol known as the "ninja star", which was used as an alternate logo on this and future albums, and on related artwork.
The album featured an expansive booklet containing photographs by Anton Corbijn. These photographs depict the band in various dress, including white A-shirts with suspendersCuban suits, and gothic. In the aforementioned interview, James Hetfield said:. Lars and Kirk drove on those records. The whole 'We need to reinvent ourselves' topic was up. Image is not an evil thing for me, but if the image is not you, then it doesn't make much sense.
I think they were really after a U2 kind of vibe, Bono doing his alter ego. I couldn't get into it. The whole, 'Okay, now in this photoshoot we're going to be '70s glam rockers. The whole cover thing, it went against what I was feeling. Load Overkill - Metallica - Load (Vol.2) positive to mixed Overkill - Metallica - Load (Vol.2) from critics.
Rolling Stone said, "The foursome dams the bombast and chugs half-speed ahead, settling into a wholly magnetizing groove that bridges old-school biker rock and the doomier side of post-grunge '90s Overkill - Metallica - Load (Vol.2). Metallica Overkill - Metallica - Load (Vol.2) existential metal and they've never needed the props Metallica are still awesome What is new is streamlined attack, the focus and, yes, the tunes.
Melody Maker expressed reservations about Load' s heaviness compared to its predecessors: "A Metallica album is traditionally an exhausting event.
It should rock you to exhaustion, leave you brutalised and drained. This one is no exception. It is, however, the first Metallica album to make me wonder at any Various - Hip Hop And Rapping In The House, 'What the fuck was that?
