What happens when a metalhead, a classic rock fan and a semi-drunken semi-hipster decide to talk music and more.

Episode 46 - Off the Rails Month, Part III - Metallica - St. Anger

August 20th, 2016

Today, Iron-Cast continues "Off the Rails Month", where we review albums that came out of left field, with an album that has to be a poster-child for albums that went off the rails. That's right, Iron-Cast delves into Metallica's "St. Anger". This album left so many questions upon its release... Who was the high school sophomore who wrote the lyrics? ... Why did Lars decide to play on a toy drum set? ... Should we cut them some slack because they only had 11 months to record this album? ... and How many times did Cliff Burton spin in his grave when this album was released? But what of this album? Is this a misunderstood album that goes back to the band's roots, or is this the half-assed effort of artists who have lost touch with their fans and with everything? Tune in to find out.
