That’s right ladies and gents, the (probably) most expected album of the year has been officially named. After many many controversies and other stuff I’ll barely mention here (they first said it will be released in February then delayed it for September, then Dave Grohl wrote them an open letter, and many other things) they finally set the name for their new album.
Wat’s it called? Death Magnetic. When I first heard this, I had the same face I would have had if I’d have seen Paris Hilton trying to play an Ibanez guitar. First of all, after all this time spent thinking and working on the best name, coming up with something like this is not quite the best thing you can do. Why?
Well, first of all, it resembles former guitarist, rock legend and overall bad ass Dave Mustaine’s band: Megadeth. I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, but they sound somewhat similar. While I do think it sounds better than Magnetic Death, I just think it’s not good. It doesn’t sound bad ass, except if you’re a freaked out chick or under 14; just using the word ‘death’ in your album name is not quite heavy dudes. Their previous albums were like a metaphor, this is like a straight out phrase.
Anyway, maybe I’m just a bit stressed out, ’cause I really hope it will be something big and it will just rock; after all, the name is not really that important. I really have faith in them, ’cause after all, if Metallica can’t do it, who can
