Do Metallica still matter?
Metallica have a new album in the works, but should we be bothered?
Can metal’s biggest band still make a lasting impression with their next album? And will we still care?
It’s the hope that keeps you hanging on, desperately craving one more fix. Even after St. Anger, Lulu and the cash-spunking cinematic omnishambles that was Through The Never, we want to believe that Metallica still matter, that Metallica still care. But holy fuck, they haven’t half tested our patience, and 2016 might just be the year that our reservoirs of goodwill finally run dry.
