Metallica - Hardwired
It's pretty goddamn amazing. They haven't sounded this good since... the 80s. This is right up there with the 1991 Black Album.
Amazing rock band from Canada. They are HUGE there, and its not just a generic popularity. I can't really describe what they mean - maybe one of the Canadians on here can better explain it. They've been around since the late 80s. The lead singer and songwriter announced in May he has a serious brain tumor that they can't remove. Despite that, and despite head surgery and chemo, they went on what is likely a farewell tour. The last show was played in their hometown of Kingston, Ontario in a hockey arena (of course) filled to capacity with about 6500 people (including PM Trudeau), plus another 20,000+ outside. It was broadcast without commercials on the CBC, and streamed live without country restrictions on Youtube. I saw it get up to more than 130K views.Chrill wrote:What is the Tragically Hip? Never heard of them.
Obviously I'm a fan, but like I said, they are so much more to Canadians.
