    /37\ Metallica Family Tree (Sister Bands)

    Bands Metallica shares most common blood with. Graded in several tiers of kinship. The closest to Metallica band is obvious (the Mustaine one), but the second closest may come a surprise to you. Plus a few unexpected cousins.

    Death Magnetic was Metallica's return to the roots. And It came the closest to being the ultimate Metallica album - but felt short. Today we go through the songs, seeking what's so good and not so good about them.

    /35\ What If Load/Reload Were One Album (Better Than Black Album?)

    /35\ What If Load/Reload Were One Album (Better Than Black Album?)

    It's been done before many times, but now it's my take! Making Load/Reload one solid album that wouldn't feel that of a "letdown" for Metallica fans. In fact, we could make it even better than The Black album! (Spoiler: it's about speed, dirt, and having an instrumental track).

Fantastic podcast

I’ve been following Andriy for a few years now, and he has been my number 1 source for one upping my friends with random Metallica facts. If you have any interest in Metallica, or are a new fan, this podcast is for you! Rock on Andriy 🤘

Metallica 🔥🤘

I’ve been big fan of Metallica ever since my friend put on Enter Sandman in an Xbox party back in mid-late 2016. I’m such a huge fan and sucker for this band, and Andriy always continues to strengthen my love and passion for this band with every video on YouTube and every podcast I have heard so far. It’s very easy to say that Metallica is not a phase, but a lifestyle. I’m so thankful to know that there is someone like Andriy out there putting out all kinds of different revolving around this band. Because of him, I’m sure that many fans have grown to love Metallica more and probably have more respect for Metallica’s entire catalog now than did before (St. Anger, Load, Reload, etc...) - I don’t know about Lulu though lol. I’ve been watching Andriy for a few years now and I recently just started listening to this podcast last night and I love it just as much as I love his videos; great quality, production, educational, humor and overall enjoyable. Thank you so much Andriy for all you do for the Metallica community and for the band in general. I do hope and pray that you manage to get an interview with the band and that you can ask them every question you ever wanted to ask them because you deserve it, especially after all the hard work and passion you have put into discussing this band, thank you for sharing your love for this band with us. Be Metal! 🤘🔥

P.S. please rank every Metallica song at some point, no rush or pressure, but I would love to see your list and opinions on each song.

Wonderful

I’ve been watching him on YouTube for a couple of years. Very much enjoying the podcast. I don’t have any real world friends who care about Metallica, I can’t geek out with my wife about black album remastered rift tapes. His videos and podcasts are always insightful and fun and dive into my level of nerdiness.
