That put a big ol' grin on my face. Very enjoyable, and Papa Het sounding great to boot!

I'll probably never listen to another metallica album without some sort of huge asterisk in my mental space, but that doesn't stop me from mentally undressing Papa Het up there, still kicking ass at almost 60. What an absolute American treasure.

Except the modern production, this track sounds like it could be on kill em all. I hope there's some more short bangers on the upcoming album but it's gonna be 12 tracks on 77 minutes so probably not.

Too pop for me, but it's great that Metallica is still out there, doing their thing. Maybe some metal crumbs will fall down that other metal bands can feast upon and keep the genre going. Am sure this will be welcomed by fans, but Ive been a fence sitter after The Black Album.

I'd prefer the vocals be more aggressive, but overall I enjoyed it very much. Looks like Kirk was playing an LTD M Black Metal in the video?

I’m shocked to say that I like it. The lyrics are definitely derivative but I expect nothing less at this point.

Didn't really listen for the lyrics, so can't say anything about those, but DAMN.

They've taken a step towards kill em all in this one. Papa Het's vocals are great!

There is something inherently cool about seeing Hetfield on a leather jacket wielding an old flying V.

I've been anxious for a new album from them for some time. I'll be honest, though, this song doesn't really do much for me. :( I listened to it about 10 times in the car and that was it. I recall when Hardwired was released, I was completely blown away by that single. This one is "Meh." I don't really care much for them returning to the KEA sound/vibe. The ONE song on Hardwired I didn't like at all was "Spit Out the Bone."

Unlike what Megadeth and Machine Head released this year, I'm not itching to listen to the new single again.

Nice song, I guess.

I hate to say this because I love everything they did up to the Black Album, but at this point I expect nothing from them.

Also: that was a terrible solo (again).
