Oh, my God. I can't believe they did it again. They promised us real Metal and gave us shite. Last time it was St Anger, this time it's Trivium.
"Mouth so full of lies"
"Waiting for the one, the day that never comes"
"The sunshine never comes"
Fucking... Emo. And I mean, emo and a good sad song are totally different things. The first Unforgiven was excellent. But after a few listens... FUCK.
It's a lot better than St Anger, but it's still worse than Load or Reload. And that's saying a lot, cause no one but me liked those two albums.
The good: The intro / main theme is alright. Sounds nothing like Metallica, but it's kinda cool sounding. The harmony solo at around 5:20 is seriously rocking.
The bad: Lyrics. My God. As a lyrics man, this is the worst part. But the "Thrash" bit at the end is also terrible. It's like... They know we want to rock out, but it's so... Convoluted. It sounds like they're playing with us. I'd say they're holding back, but... It's just... No. They forget how to rock.
I'm probably just incredibly jaded since Metallica used to be my favorite band, but I really don't like this song at all.
(To cleanse your pallet, just listen to the Pyramaze track in the player. :P)
