Our buddies at Sip Wines hav announced that they have some of Maynard’s latest Caduceus Red wines now in stock, and to celebrate are having a sale:
The New 2013 Caduceus Reds have landed in Australia! To celebrate, we’ve taken $20 off the Merkin & Caduceus Pack. This pack includes the delicious 2013 Caduceus Nagual de la NAGA & the brand new 2015 Merkin Chupacabra GSM Red from all Arizona grapes.
Sadly there is no goon sack option, however you do get $20 off the bottled variety. They’re expensive wines, so probably for enthusiasts or special occasions only. Though I haven’t tried any of the newer wines, the ones I have tried in the past have been pretty good, so worth an order if you’ve got the money lying around.
New Metallica double album 11/18/16, titled ‘Hardwired…To Self Destruct’
I’d give the first song off the album, Hardwired, a 7 out of 10… Instrumentally, I found the song pretty interesting (could have used a better guitar solo from Hammett). Lyrically, I found the song lacking, and Hetfield’s vocal delivery was a little awkward to me.
Overall, the song (for me) was decent, but nothing spectacular. Besides, we have tons of material to come from the album anyways, so hopefully the rest of the songs will blow me away.
Thought it was good for a bunch of things they do,- that I have little interest in. But its the lead track, which for a lot of bands seems to always be the ‘intro track’, before the real stuff kicks in. Fully confident the rest of its going to be awesome.
They seemed to be at total ease the entire time this album was being done, no worries. Plus its a double. I think we’re in for some good stuff.
Why are you guys discussing Metallica in the comment section of a MJK wine post? Bring it on in to the forum! http://fourtheye.net/f/
Cause who gives a shit about celebrity wines. I blame the wine shit on tool. What else is a guy supposed to do when his band can’t write new music. Make wine I guess and enjoy year after years of harvest while his band strokes off in the loft.
To preface, I’m not a Maynard and/or Tool apologist generally, nor am I much more than a ‘legacy fan’ at this point, having not listened to much of their music in a long time. They were such a big part of my younger years that I’ll always have an interest in new music, but like most of you (I’d assume) my most fervent fandom is behind me. That said, ‘celebrity wine’ has a terrible negative connotation, and I’d like to point out that sometimes the cliche associated with it is true, and other times less so. Many involve said celebrity… Read more »

In addition to wine, they take serious; keychains, fanclubs, pillows, cryptic staements, used cymbals, imaginary… Read more »

My top 5 METALLICA albums:
1: … And Justice For All
2: Master of Puppets
3: Ride The Lightning
4: Metallica (the black album)
5: Load/ Reload
My top 5 are:
1) Having my balls crushed in a vise
2) Gouging out my eyes
3) Giving birth through my penis
4) Being drawn and quartered
5) Listening to Metallica (even the trilogy)
A. I like them all.
B. Well put dslet. Instead, you could spend your time listening to Tools releases from the last 10 years. They are, in order;
OK, hold it, that didn’t work. How about their top five? Oh, that’s right, – they’ve been working on the 5th for 10 years.
But to be fair this new one is Metallica’s 2nd album in 10+ years; both bands have been content to rest on their laurels and occasionally do big $$$ tours of primarily old material.
Sort of. But the difference is this; Kill ‘Em All (1983) Ride the Lightning (1984) Master of Puppets (1986) …And Justice for All (1988) Metallica (1991) Load (1996) Reload (1997) St. Anger (2003) Death Magnetic (2008) Hardwired… to Self-Destruct (2016) 1993 Live Shit: Binge & Purge 1999 S&M 2009 Orgullo, Pasión, y Gloria: Tres Noches en la Ciudad de México 2010 The Big Four: Live from Sofia, Bulgaria 1999 Garage Incorporated 2011 Lulu 2013 Through The Never Yes, Metallica started 9 years earlier, but they’ve generated a LOT of product for their fans (fellow celebrants), and they released TWO albums… Read more »
goes back to quality tho. every Tool release is excellent. metallica hasnt done anything decent since the black album… i really hope the new one is good tho…
The Fall, as a singles band and essentially an EP/expanded single group, are astounding. New material appeared on EVERY single one of these. Singles were not album tracks, though many reissues of their classic work on CD/digital tacks on the singles of the period of the LP’s release. The EPs and expanded singles: Wise Ol’ Man (2016) The Remainderer EP (2013) Sir William Wray (2013) Night Of The Humerons (2012) Laptop Dog (2011) Bury! (2010) Slippy Floor (2009) Strychnine Vol. 2 EP (2009) Strychnine EP (2009) Reformation! The Single (2007) Fall Sound (2007) Higgle-dy Piggle-dy (2006) I Can Hear The… Read more »
My favorite band of all time is a UK experimental group called The Fall. Their only permanent member, Mark E. Smith, is 59 years old but the group is an ever-changing line-up of 20-35 year olds and the sound changes on every single LP. Smith is an accomplished author, poet, singer, songwriter, playwright, cultural commentator, and he’s put out studio albums basically every single year. He staged and wrote a surrealist conspiratorial play based around the death of John Paul I. He was commissioned by the Dutch to write a piece commemorating the “Glorious Revolution” when William of Oranj came… Read more »

I’m not even going to go on with the sheer amount of books, bootlegs, live videos, collaborations, spoken word albums and so on. Suffice it to say that the whataboutism associated with comment after comment you make means fuckall, the only music I listen to or buy at all is The Fall, and their productivity and the quality of the work makes 99.9% of musicians revealed for the lazy fucks they are.
WELL done. I’ve spent a lot of time with the Fall. Not an argument, just an observation. I don’t think Mark Smith and whoever he’s assembled have spent much time laboring over anything.
Metallic LABORED over St. Anger.
In answer to the inevitable oncoming sentiments;
A. I love St. Anger
B. Yeah, I know, being dissonant and avant are cool when the Melvins do it, not cool when Metallica do it.
Last , for discographies, I’ll throw in Acid Mothers Temple.
Or Robert Pollard and Guided By Voices.
Whoa!, didn’t read through your entire comment. Don’t know about that. It definitively reveals what a lazy fuck three, or definitely ONE is.
Im a massive GBV and Fall fan but again both acts have thrown SO MUCH shit some is bound to stick. It must have taken you ages to list them all. Mark E Smith would be horrified.
this made me laugh. one of the reasons I still check into this site from time to time is purely for the sardonic comments.
we should collectively hijack this site and talk about every band but t__l.
I’m all about that new death grips record. and the latest melvins is good fun. excited for the upcoming red fang and mesuggah record.
The wines are pretty good. I wish I had a bottle to enjoy as I check out this new Tool. Ahh the energy…
Brilliant Tool vids.
Hardwired… to Self Destruct is a great title. reminds me of thrash days which judging by the cover art is what they are going back to.
Meshuggah also releasing in october.
Ill be listening to both as I read the MJK book…
What a shit show it is here… thanks for the recommendation of “The Fall” though. Never heard of them so I’ll check them out.
As for Metallica… It’s really hard for me to take them serious after their cry baby bitch phase went public…
That is all.
‘Shit show’. I thought it was a pretty good discussion. Don’t worry though,- totally irrelevant, pointless post about pillows coming right up and you can stare at ‘0 comments ‘ to your hearts desire.
HAHA! Fair enough!
Fuck man this thread rules. The fall rules! Yes! Some real and worthwhile music talk, finally.
I have not been into Metallica since self titled except for death magnetic. You know which band rules? Check out pinkish black. Album, bottom of the morning. Dark and proggy.
Can confirm Pinkish Black are awesome, and Bottom of the Morning one of the best albums of 2015
It’s a shame they are so unknown. Very early genesis sounding at parts but darker and louder.
Funny you should say that. Keyboards and athletic drummer. Sent me thinking about/listening to ELP.
I have a playlist of go to bands in an attempt to substitute lack of new Tool. ELP are on there. I’ve thought many a time that they and Tool sound alike in places, particularly on Tarkus.
Out of all of the usual suspects (Rishloo, Cire, Sydonia etc), for me Samadhi Band by far come the closest. For me, extremely satisfying. Wish there was at least one more ‘clone band’ that came that close.
Also Yes. Find Tool and Yes very similar.
Thanks for the recommendation. Interesting band.
