They're not the same band since Load and Reload when they had the image overhaul. Which is a crying shame, but at least they've not yet completely gone up their own asses, they're still bringing out good line ups, and playing for two hours a night, even if their setlists can be very questionable.
That's a good perspective at least. Perfect for them actually, the best Metallica cover band is Metallica themselves
. Too true now that I think of it. You do have reason though, at least they play good-length sets and generally good lineups. Still, they'll never be the same, and I'll always have that bias now
Oh well, that's why there's thousands of other bands
