Earlier this week Metallica was to be laughed at the title of their upcoming eleventh album, 72 seasons, which suggested heavy ‘thrash’ metal as the main course. Today we present the release of a song that is close to eight minutes long and it is safe to say that it is Metallica’s best song yet. “72 Seasons” takes listeners through the old school heavy metal scene combined with what sounds like an inspired worship of school thrash metal.
Every member of Metallica is given an appearance in “72 Seasons,” vocalist Robert Trujillo getting a well-deserved boost in the mix and James Hetfield giving his best vocals. The new single also has the most unique arrangement from any of the tracks released to date, and his solo break is well-placed as Kirk Hammett’s shredding pentatonic licks fit in well with the track’s thrash nature.
Unlike many of his previous tracks, “Season 72” doesn’t let the listener get too comfortable before plunging them into a new groove or fast passage. And to top it off, it’s surprising how often the shade is thrown at Metallica’s Lars Ulrich, because his drumming is surprisingly good here and on most of the songs released so far. 72 Weather. Oftentimes fans and critics forget how long Metallica has been around the block and despite that the band deserves credit for having the technical skills required to play heavy metal music, especially thrash metal.
We hope that many of Metallica’s new records offer songs similar to “72 Seasons.” First of all, Metallica usually excels at long ‘epic’ songs like “Master of Puppets,” “One,” “Creeping Death,” etc. It’s also very interesting that Metallica has chosen to stick to heavier and more sophisticated music. the best songs on their single release – the band has never been credited with writing a better song and has done so on almost every record since. Ride The Lightening (1984). It is unclear if “72 Seasons” is the last song before the album’s release date, which is currently three weeks away (April 14). Either way, Metallica has given fans plenty of great music to chew on as we eagerly await their 11th studio album.
