    Believith thou me my Brother, there is One, Sad But True, Metallica.Their history and music is tied together. The previous album leads to the next with and threw the persona of their lives. So, let it be written, so let it be done, that on The Day that Never Comes will disclose Some Kind of Monster, that will last forever, Through the Never. Shoot Me Again, I ain't dead yet!

    It may be a different caliber than early Metallica, but I still really liked the last album, and this song stands out to me. \m/
