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).

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.

This is a MUST buy for any fans of Metallica. Really well written and composed with fantastic lyrics and skill in the playing.
(- for more knowing Metallica fans:- Metallica's album 'Death Magnetic was recorded at very low quality, you do not have to worry about that for 'Beyond Magnetic as the recording quality is top notch)

...why this stuff didn't make it onto the album.

It took me a while to discover these four songs but now I can safely say that they are as good or better than the songs on Death Magnetic. Every song is fantastic and I look forward to their next album.

Love this! Purchased it for hubby for xmas as we both loved Death Magnetic so much. A couple of the songs should have made the album, in my opinion.

Metallica are back! After the horrible disappointment that was Lulu this extra for the Death Magnetic album just reminds us why they are the biggest and best metal band in the world. Only four tracks on this, but they are all even longer than is typical for Metallica. The killer riffs and astonishingly fast and brilliant solos are back and the magnificent duo of Hetfield and Hammett are back and bad as ever. Every sond here could have been on any of their albums, especially the first two, which could easily have replaced a couple of tracks on Death Magnetic. My only gripe is that it doesn't seem to be available on CD. I guess everyone downloads these days, but I do like to collect CD's so my Metallica discography will be missing one.
