My Apocalypse (5:01)

Cover of Death Magnetic

From Death Magnetic and 19 other releases

“My Apocalypse” is the final track on Metallica’s ninth studio album, Death Magnetic.

It is also the forty-first single by the band. The song could be considered a look back to songs like Damage Inc. or Dyer’s Eve, being a short (5:01) and high tempo ending to an album, just like on “Master of Puppets” and “…And Justice For All”

Track Intro Added - From Metallica’s official website (7/31/2009):

“We’ve been enjoying playing My Apocalypse out here on the road but felt like it could use something extra. We decided that it needed a cool intro to set the mood so James wrote one. Check out and enjoy this free download… and make sure you learn it for singing along at a future show!”

Claustrophobic, crawl out of this skin
High explosive, reach and pull that pin
Fear thy name extermination
Desecrating hail of fire

    Best song on the album for me, great way to close it. I just hate Kirk Hammet's solo guitar tone (even more than I hate the mix/master of this album). Who the hell uses blues/indie rock combo amps to record metal solos?!

    It's Thrash alright - just doesn't compare to songs like Fight Fire with Fire, Damage Inc. and Dyer's Eve.

    funny. metallica used to be this, lars used to be that, now they this, now they that, they stop playing metal this, they are not bad that... have u ever reach their level? have u ever did something that inspire others to pick up instruments and start playing? i never heard your name, but i know METALLICA. if u dont like them, simply stop listening to their song. no matter what u said, this guys will still be around longer than u ever think.
