Metallicats: Concert and New Record

Metallicats, our favorite dance band

My all time favorite dansband “The Metallicats” are about to release a new album in September. They are furthermore having a concert in Bergen, Norway tomorrow night. Expectations for both the concert and the new album are relatively high after listening to some of the new material they have released at http://missionmetallica.com. I would recommend any fan to have a look at the site for their new record. It is most likely set up to help them make even more money but it is fun to see some behind the scene stuff and listen to the old concert recordings they give you for free.

Even though I like the way the Metallicats inlay from Garage Inc make fun of all the other ugly album covers, I hope the album cover is somewhat different. I am looking forward to new heavy riffs and plenty of new solos on Death Magnetic which can be pre-ordered now (from Platekompaniet here in Norway). Metallica has also announced that you can play the entire album through the console game Guitar Hero III on release day.

  1. Even though it was raining and the sound was a bit bad, the concert was still a blast. Metallica put together a quite nice set list with songs from the good old albums. They could have replaced Bleeding Me and some of the Black Album songs (for instance Sad But True, Nothing Else Matters) as Bleeding Me is a bit boring and as I have heard the Black Album songs quite some times live. They could rather have played something from the next album but I guess they will start playing those songs later.

    James said something about “I hope you’ll like it” before they played Breadfan. Metallica has been covering Breadfan since 1989 I think but a journalist from BA (the local newspaper from Bergen) believed this was a song from the new album. In their 10-page coverage of the concert they wrote about the new song Bread Fan. Are you kidding me? I sent an email to the journalist to make him aware of this, probably like a lot of other people. The journalist was man enough to replay and “confess his sins”.
