Until it sleeps
When it was released in May 1996 "Until it sleeps" was the first new Metallica track to be released for almost 5 years. When the video was aired on MTV a lot of fans and followers said that this was not the band they knew as they had so much makeup on.
Check out the two 10 inch singles. This is a very rare format as it is smaller than an album, but bigger than a single. The red vinyl is killer and not to hard to find.
There are two interesting versions of "Until it sleeps" available on the different formats. First the FOBD which is an early "writing in progress" version which is a demo recorded on December 8, 1995 at The Plant Studios. "F.O.B.D" is a shortage of "Fell On Black Days". There are no lyrics so the melody of the vocals was just hummed by James. Second there is the "Herman Melville mix" which is a strange mix of the song done by Moby. Herman Melville is Mobys granddaddy who is famous for his book about Moby Dick.
Some of the Australian CD copies have a sticker which say "Coming soon: Until it sleeps part 2", which is odd as a part 2 don't excist.
