And you're the only person I've ever heard talk about Ultra Boris.
Just because the person did their homework and knew their thrash doesn't mean their opinion about Lars purposely trying to ruin metal is true. The person just came up with an out there idea to get people to talk. The way Metallica's career went after MOP it's easy for someone to look back on it today and say that's what Lars set out to do, even if they have no concrete evidence to back up their claim. But I bet you if this Ultra Boris was reviewing albums back in 1986 he would've said nothing of the kind about the band ruining metal and probably would've gave MOP the high praise that most fans and critics did.
