Death Magnetic. Metallica is actually trying to get people excited for an album named Death Magnetic. Kill ‘Em All, Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets, …And Justice For All, Death Magnetic? Sorry, no. While as a title it’s arguably preferable to St. Anger, this new title consists of two words whose forced connection evokes nothing, except maybe the name of a song in an upcoming sequel to Starlight Express. Deic at least had some grandeur, coming off like some lesbian Valkyrie goddess.
To be fair to the hapless quartet, it’s probably hard to come up with an album title that doesn’t make Metallica seem even more ridiculous than they already are. But I still think any of these would sound more promising than Death Magnetic:
• Management Firm Of Puppets
• Locked, Stock And Ready To Rock
• Psycho Anal Eyes
• The Quietus
• Sex Cauldron
• This %^%# Doesn’t NEED A Title!!
• Illegal Deathload
• Contract Killers
• Songs For Torben
