Black Sabbath Member Did not Actually Like Metallica


Geezer Butler lately lavished reward on Metallica’s self-titled bestseller, a.okay.a “The Black Album.” He admitted that he couldn’t “relate” to the thrash giants’ earlier works.

“Black Album” started a shift away from the sound that made Metallica so nicely liked within the first place. However, one among metallic’s founding fathers says he wasn’t a lot thinking about what Lars Ulrich & Co. had been doing earlier than the album that gave us “Enter Sandman” and “Nothing Else Issues”.

The Black Sabbath bassist & major lyricist wrote in his lately revealed memoirs:

“The trendy metallic bands had nothing to do with the sound Sabbath had apparently invented… Metallica’s ‘Grasp of Puppets’ was an enormous album in 1986, however I used to be extra more likely to be listening to soul or jazz.”

Apparently, the “Black Album” impressed him a lot that, as Loudwire notes, Geezer writes it restored his religion in rock ‘n’ roll.

Geezer expanded on the impressions written down in “Into the Void” throughout a latest interview on Loudwire Nights, the place he sang excessive praises of the album that took Metallica to a different stage of mainstream recognition:

“I assumed the riffs had been nice, nice riffs. I at all times thought, ‘God, I want I had written that.’

“It’s simply actually good riffs and one thing I might relate to. I couldn’t actually relate to their earlier stuff.

“I imply, lots of people assume the sooner stuff is the true Metallica, but it surely didn’t actually attraction a lot to me. However when the ‘Black Album’ got here out, it felt extra interesting to my style.”

He added:

“[It was] one of many few metallic albums I might hearken to from starting to finish. I actually loved listening to it.

“There are only a few albums of any style that I can hearken to from monitor one to the tip. It’s a kind of albums that I might hearken to the entire thing and I’m actually impressed with it.”

“Into the Void” is out now.
