Blackened - …And
Justice For All
Metallica Song for the Week of June 28.
As I have done with all the previous Metallica Song of the Week installments,
I picked an album on Tuesday and started listening until a certain track
stuck out. This week I choose …And Justice For All, which is
rather well known as one of the darkest Metallica albums out there.
I listened to the whole disc a few times, and every time Blackened came
on I remembered that this particular song actually did mean something
It was my senior
year in high school, and I was in this morbid "Humanity sucks! We are
all gonna die!" mode. I had just finished writing a large term paper
for my English class that discussed that mankind was inherently evil.
After writing that paper, the words of Blackened seemed to be so much
more inspiring. "It's the exit of humanity…color our world Blackened!"
Ahh…now that's beautiful.
To the non-Metallica
fan, this is exactly what you think all Metallica sounds like. Very
fast tempo, lots of yelling, and subject matter that discusses death
and total destruction. It really is a great song. Go find it using your
favorite digital music theft program, listen to it, and Limp Bizkit
will sound like total pussies.
