new album - Rhinoplasty. It was released here in Europe the 19th of May,
and will be out in the US in the middle of June.
=== GIG-REPORT ======================================================
AUSTRALIA 2nd & 4th OF APRIL.
G-day. I saw Metallica recently in Australia in Newcastle on Thursday the
2nd of April and again in Sydney on Saturday the 4th. They were two
On both occasions the band came on to the stage while the houselights were
still on with James and the band playing the riff from Bad Seed.
On the Thursday night they then opened with So What followed
by Master of Puppets, Sad But True, Ain't My Bitch, King Nothing, Fuel,
The Memory Remains, Until it Sleeps, Bleeding Me, One, Kill/Ride Medley.
They then came out and played acoustic versions of Four Horsemen and
Motorbreath as well as Low Man's lyric. They then closed the set with
Enter Sandman and Battery.
The day after the Newcastle there was a front page article in the local
paper about how loud the concert was and how people living miles away
complained about it, apparently Metallica were using a new French Sound
System and boy did it make for some ear ringing noise.
In Sydney the set list remained pretty much the same except So What was
replaced by the Last Caress, Devil's Dance was played instead of the
Memory Remains and the band closed with Damage Inc.
This was the first time i had been to see Metallica and the loud
great music mixed in with some unreal pyrotechnics particularly during
Fuel and One made these two nights I will never forget.
=== REVIEW ==========================================================
APOCALYPTICA - Inquisition Symphony
Many of you have heard of Apocalyptica, the group of four Finnish cello
players who covered Metallica songs on their first album. Well, I was just
at the record shop at lunch, and lo' and behold, on the new arrivals rack
in the metal section, a new Apocalyptica album!
So, I picked it up. This album isn't all Metallica covers, but just four:
Bellz, Nothing Else, Fade and One. They also cover a couple of tunes by
Faith No More, Pantera and Sepultura and include a couple of original
compositions. The track listing:
1. Harmageddon (original)
2. From Out Of Nowhere (Faith No More)
3. For Whom The Bell Tolls (Metallica)
4. Nothing Else Matters (Metallica)
5. Refuse/Resist (Sepultura)
6. M.B. (original)
7. Inquisition Symphony (Sepultura)
8. Fade To Black (Metallica)
9. Domination (Pantera)
10. Toreador (original)
11. One (Metallica)
Just listening to it as I type this, Nothing Else Matters sounds like it
was written for cello's, it sounds amazing. If you haven't picked up the
first Apocalyptica album, and are looking for a new spin on Metallica, do
yourself a favour and pick up one of their albums.
