Load songs Product Information
Load album for sale by Metallica was released Jun 04, 1996 on the Elektra (Label) label. The kings of speed metal have never been keen on being labeled, and LOAD, which follows up the 1991 mega-hit METALLICA, is a surprising pastiche of sonic fury. Metallica still rocks hard. James Hetfield's lyrics are still full of venom and anger, and the music still could scare small children. But the band is ready to show off other sides of its craft. ...See Full Description

||the sandinista! of metal.|
sometimes in life there could be a double album like the white album and sometimes a triple album like sandinista!. but load on the vinyl days would have been a quadruple album but on cd form this was the ultimate example of cd technology. a lot of fans hated i mean hated the record and the videos and all that jazz. in the decade of tool, rage, pantera and sevendust, metallica had to release an album like that. this and reload have the feel of double albums like blood sugar sex magik and the real double album was mellon collie. 2x4, wasting my hate, king nothing, epics like bleeding me and the outlaw torn are awsome songs. so who cares if they dressed like a bunch of hollywood types i dig the style. well the problem witht he 90's is just that it is not a good decade for metal. but load is a good album. it may be everything that is wrong witht the record world but to hell with that people experiment at times and you got to be independant instead of being a formulaic commercial clown. still load is load.

||Sell Out? Do Me A Favour!|
Following Metallica's epic tour of nearly three years and 250+ shows on the Black Album tour. The band returned in 1996 to be hit by major critics with this new album. Load marked the start of an era when the band had short hair, classy cocktails, owned speedboats and put semen and blood on their front covers. Musically it was a change too, with a more bluesy feel to the songs. But i feel this is a good thing, for a start no band plays the same stuff all their career and gets as big as Metallica. And they've shown another dimension to their immense talent in this fine record. With "Until It Sleeps" the lead single which i would call a piece of Art. And a song which was a break from the norm even further with "Mama Said" a heart felt country style song about James Hetfield's mother who passed on when he was just 16. It takes courage to do what Metallica did, they got accused of "Selling Out" which is rubbish, Metallica stands for doing What they want, When They Want, How They Want To Do It. Top Work Lads!

||And now for something different...|
I must admit this album is different. I started listening to METALLICA from the BLACK ALBUM, and that is what i am used to. This one has it hits, King Nothing, Hero Of The Day, Bleeding Me, Until It Sleeps, brilliant songs. However, most of the others just didn't have the METALLICA touch.

||This ain't Metallica!|
I thought Metallica was supposed to be a METAL band, not this mix of alternative/country band! This ain't Metallica! At least St. Anger is metal.
