I've been listening to Metallica's ...And Justice For All album since it was recently re-released.
Mainly just been sticking to the classic's lately like Metallica, Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Judas Priest & Ozzy. I haven't been able to get into a lot of the metal bands that have come out in the last decade but I'll have to check them out a bit more. Need to broaden my horizons.
man... I love Shortest Straw... that's still one of my favorite songs. I have not heard the re-release.... I take it was remastered as well?
There are a lot of newer bands to try. Trivium is a great one to get into if you like Metallica - they are definitely heavier though and rotate between clean singing and growling. Shogun, In waves, Vengence Falls, and Ascendancy are perfect places to start. I like their tempo.
Unearth is a band @Grindspine
introduced me to a few years ago. III: In the eyes of Fire, Darkness in the Light, The March, and the Oncoming storm are great places to start. Watchers of rule is ok. It's growly... but I like it... and it's another where I like the tempo.
