Metallica, one of the most iconic metal bands of all time, has released their latest album, 72 Seasons. Fans have eagerly awaited this release since their previous album, Hardwired… to Self-Destruct, which was released in 2016.

72 Seasons is based upon the first 18 years of life, as per James Hetfield. It has also been said that this was their stab at going back to some roots.

Musically, Metallica continues to push the boundaries of their sound, incorporating elements of thrash, heavy metal, and progressive rock. The band’s signature riffs and intricate solos are on full display, with some tracks featuring experimental sonic textures.

One standout track on the album is “Screaming Suicide,” which features a driving rhythm and a soaring chorus. The lyrics capture the feeling of renewal and hope that comes with the changing of the seasons. Another highlight is “If Darkness Had A Son,” which features a haunting melody and atmospheric soundscapes, evoking the stillness and darkness of winter, or at least, that was my take.

Metallica’s fans will not be disappointed with 72 Seasons, as the band delivers a powerful and thought-provoking album that showcases their artistic growth and maturity. While some may argue that the album lacks the immediacy and catchiness of their classic hits, 72 Seasons is a bold and ambitious work that rewards repeated listening and contemplation.

In conclusion, Metallica’s 72 Seasons is a must-listen for fans of the band and heavy metal music in general. With its epic scope, complex arrangements, and philosophical themes, the album demonstrates that Metallica continues to be a force to be reckoned with in the world of music.
