14 Days of Metallica: Day 14

The final day of the series is reserved my favorite Metallica song of all time.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 13

Nearing the end (and the beginning, of the concert!), Day 13 and the final Day 14 feature two of my favorite Metallica songs.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 12

Much better, Hi-Res version here.

Nothing needs to be said about this.  I know it's a cover, but Metallica took an awesome Irish drinking song, and turned it into an awesome metal Irish drinking song.

Hit the jump for my favorite part.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 11

In what I consider a throwback (at least cinematographically... is that even a word? [EDIT: It IS!]) to the band's first video, One, Day 11 hosts All Nightmare Long.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 10

The first song from the double digits goes to quite possibly my favorite video from the band.  I remember watching the premiere when it was first released in jaw-dropping awe, not able to wait for the rest.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 9

Day 9 is the home of a song that's off an often chastised album; Reload.  I still don't understand why so many people hated this (these, including Load) albums.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 8

Day 8 goes to what turned out to be one of the few love songs from the band; Nothing Else Matters

Betcha didn't know that did you? Hit the jump for the story behind it.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 6

Ok, so summer finally arrived in Newfoundland.  I am a bartender, and on sunny days, the deck gets busy.  I worked 38 hours in 3 days and literally did not have time to turn my computer.  Then I had to drive 4 hours to meet with my girlfriend and other singer to record a song (I'll link a video when it is edited and uploaded!).  Now I've finally grabbed a second to myself, at home while my girlfriend is getting ready to watch a movie in bed.

Now, enough apologies... Day 6 (which should have been posted a few days ago) goes to...

14 Days of Metallica: Day 5


ONLY the S&M version.  The original does not exist in my mind anymore.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 4

An amazing metal trilogy spanning almost 20 years, all three Unforgiven make it to the list.

The first reversed the usual style of prior ballads the band had released.  Instead of a soft, melodic verse and heavy chorus, it had the opposite.  Although slower, it definitely had one of the heaviest chord progressions on the Black Album.  It's a story about a child being punished, locked in a windowless room, carving one into the stone wall until he is an old man, once he finally succeeds, he dies.  Favorite lyrics have to be "The old man then prepares, to die regretfully, that old man here is me".

Hit the jump for UN2 and UN3.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 3

Day 3 to a fan favorite, Master of Puppets.

I have 42 different versions of this song, be it studio, live, acoustic, covers or otherwise, I could listen to a different version of this song for an uninterupted 4.5 hours.

14 Days of Metallica: Day 1

Going to see Metallica on July 14th, which is in 14 days, with Steve Tilley.

Every day I will post a Metallica song, some information about it, and my favorite parts.

Day 1 goes to, fittingly enough, One.
