It wasn't really trolling, it was the fact that Metallica spent so much time slamming glam bands and hair metal and then turned around and did the one thing a glam band was most likely to do musically: write a ballad. Fade To Black is a great song, but it only works because of it's morbid and bleak nature (which also works in favor of Hetfield's lack of ability to convey emotion vocally).
