Gina Vivinetto’s Greatest Hits

Lars Ulrich has things to say

Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich has plenty to say to fans upset over the production on his band’s new album Death Magnetic.

“Listen,” Ulrich told Blender magazine's blog, “there’s nothing up with the audio quality. It’s 2008, and that’s how we make records.” He goes on:

“Somebody told me about [people complaining that the Guitar Hero version of Death Magnetic sounds better]. Listen, what are you going to do? A lot of people say [the CD] sounds great, and a few people say it doesn’t, and that’s OK. You gotta remember, when we put out ...And Justice for All, people were going, ‘What happened to these guys, this record? There’s no bass on it. It sounds like it was recorded in a fuckin’ garage on an eight-track.’ And now ...And Justice for All is sort of the seminal Metallica record that supposedly influenced a whole generation of death-metal bands. The difference between back then and now is the Internet.”

Of course, Lars being Lars, he goes on and on and on. I have a soft spot for Lars because back in ’04, he and I had a very pleasant chat about his beloved modern art collection and a lot of other esoterica that he and I both found interesting.

Lars is a perfect example of an intellectual, aesthetic metal head – and over the years I’ve met many though none more famous than Lars. To them, I raise my hands up in a devil horn salute.
