Given that the ill-fated Lou Reed collab Lulu was, by some order of magnitude, 2011′s most hated album, this is a pretty good moment for Metallica to remind the world that they are motherfucking Metallica. “Hate Train,” an outtake from the 2008 album Death Magnetic that the band recently sent to fans, is a pretty good start. The seven-minute rager has Death Magnetic‘s dog-awful brickwalled mastering job, but it still steamrolls everything around it. Listen below.
Remember when Hetfield had that muttonchop mustache thing? Good times.
