This EP makes a few points that Metallica should take note of. Their first few albums were all killer no filler, the songs were long but it never felt like it because they were enjoyable and interesting. Recently Metallica have been releasing albums with a bit too much filler, don't get me wrong there is always good stuff on them but they haven't been as consistent. Metallica went from being an album band to being a singles band. After getting into this EP what I really wish is that Metallica would decide to only release EP sized treats so that we can get back to solid albums, or in this case EPs.

Why is this so good then? I think in part because it feels so much like a consolidation of Metallica old and new; long songs which develop from start to finish mixed with their mid period groove combined with their latest sound. It is very impressive.

On a side note if these songs were rejected for inclusion on `Death Magnetic' I would be interested to know why. It could have gone in as liner notes to make the packaging more interesting. Not a big deal but it would have been nice.

Hate Train: The introduction sound a little bit like `All Nightmare Long' from Death Magnetic. This song has a very heavy groove to it. It has a chorus which recalls some of their previous work its got an air of Load era. The track powers to a close with some nice lead work.

Just a Bullet Away: Nice looping riff begins the build up of the song underpinned by a nice constant chug. Just over half way through the song drops out and we are introduced to a nice gentle section which shows off some fantastic slow burn lead playing. The drums build then explode and you realise how well Metallica can still develop a song.

So after the horrors of "LuLu" Metallica are firmly back in business, this EP contains 4 tracks that for whatever reason didn't make the cut for Death Magnetic.
I think the easiest way of reviewing this is simply to say if you enjoyed DM then you will definitely enjoy this EP as the songs are very similar.

As you can see they are all reasonably long songs (do Metallica do short songs anymore?) and all the songs tend to veer off in different directions over the length of the song, personally I think these 4 tracks are better than several of the songs on DM.
They are fast, aggressive and epic, the songs bring to mind Master of Puppets era Metallica to me as the songs are more progressive than in recent years and contain quieter passages as well as more thrash like sections, in particular there is a passage in "Just a Bullet away" which brings to mind Orion.

All in all then 4 songs, (nearly 30 minutes) of Metallica kicking maximum ass for only £3.50, what are you waiting for?

Was I the only one who didnt really enjoy Death Magnetic? I mean it was ok but it grew boring quickly in its out and out persistance to carry on with the same again and again and again 8 minute songs of pure monotiny. its boring.

Well this is different. Its a glimmer of hope. The sound is much the same as DM but the songs are more melodic in the simple sense they are built around riffs and hooks in harmony with the vocals, band etc. instead of just churning out bludgeoning chords.

I guess you could sum it up as easy as this:

This is a Metallica who aren't looking to find themselves. Its almost a 4 track Garage inc. except the songs are thiers. And 3 of the 4 songs are absolutely great.

And its fairly cheap too (at time of purchase).

In my opinion these tracks are stronger than some of the DM tracks, they are very strong and tracks that any new band out there would be lauded for writing. Metallica will never live up to their standards set when they were writing their first 5 albums, a proper millstone if ever there was, but Death Magnetic and the Beyond EP show that when they look back to what influenced them in the beginning and you have to remember that all great Metal never ages, can still be regurgitated (almost all bands do this now)' with a new twist and sound brilliant. Hopefully the band will continue in this manner with the new album hopefully being released in 2015. Certainly these 4 tracks are stuffed full of riffs and composed together with sufficient skill from 30 years of experience, to keep many an metal head happy for half an hour at least. Would like to see these tracks live at Knebworth but have already noticed that the voters have gone for the obvious tracks from their normally predictable setlist. At least the people of Finland have had the good sense to vote in Frayed ends of Sanity, the one great track I've never heard live. Anyone fancy a night in Helsinki?

My title sums up my views on this album. I had become very bored with Metallica after their 'Metallica' album. Megadeth was the way forward for me. Always a shame though cos Metallica's first few albums were definitely something to behold. Still, I guess it's impossible to keep producing such world class material time and time again.

Although I very much enjoy listening to Beyond Magnetic, 'Hate Train' and 'Hell And Back' uses what I call 'stuttering guitar'/'stuttering drums'. This is especially evident every time Hetfield sings the line "Hell and back". I personally absolutely loath this technique to the point where I feel like I'm actually being taken to hell, tortured and then brought back only to be taken there again the next time the line "hell and back" is sung. This musical technique just seems so crass and completely destroys the flow of a song.

The best of these songs is worse than the worse song on Death Magnetic. Still, they're a lot better than previous albums.
