I like it, but to long solos, band goes to garage roots.

More of a darker Load vibe which is always better than some 80's wannabe revival. Cool song

Not bad at all
I thought the two primary purposes for the internet were cat memes and overreactions.

It's a good song, it has a decent main riff, a cool solo, and the lyrics are pretty good too.

I really like this song. There is hope yet for a good album!

The best single so far from the new album. I like that main riff a lot, and James' singing is good. The solo is alright, even though I've never been a big fan of Kirk's solos. It's true that the song goes on far longer than it needs to be.

The song started strong, then here comes the Load/Reload singing flushing it all down the toilet:))) Then the solo just didn't make any sense, at this point makes me wonder if it's better without Kirk solos. Too bad it's clear that they still have what it takes to make a great metal song, but they just don't want to. They just play it safe for the masses not for metal.

I watched the video and the way they did the shadows, I thought Kirk looked a little like Mustaine. Trick of my imagination I guess. Unlike every other comment here, I didn't really care for the song.

If Load/Reload had a son

p.s that was knda cool in the beginning but dropped in the middle....

They need to either make their songs more progressive and actually have some twists and turns in them or EDIT them down. You could have cut a minute or two and the song would be stronger for it. Also they need to sit Kirk down and tell him he sucks at improve and should actually write out his solos before he cuts them in the studio.

I was kinda expecting this to be something like this album's version of Halo On Fire from some of the comments, but the Load comparisons are more apt, has a bit more of a King Nothing vibe. A fairly uninteresting main riff, dubious vocal melody choices, grating chorus: it's not great, and I actually thought the solo was alright. Baffling that they somehow made 7 minutes out of these ideas, it really does drag to hell by the end

Nice but lacks some interesting bridge section in the middle which would shake things up a bit. Not enough ideas for such a long track. I liked the section at 6:00 with this additional layer to the main riff. They should have more riffs though. And more complex riffs.
12.03.2023 - 23:54

Mmm, I didn't like it... the song is too long and the riffs are too simple. I was waiting for a surprise element that never came, probably a change of pace at the middle. What bothers me about the solo is not its length, but its speed and vibe, seems out of place...Just hope this song won't replace old classics in the upcoming tours. Thx

Love reading the comment section everyone wants Metallica to structure their songs according to his/her likeness

It's a good song. cool riffs, cool lyrics, cool vocals, cool solo. Take it for what it is, not what you want it to be

I want it to be good, but I guess I’ll take it for what it is.
