>>Spearhead>> Posted February 16, 2006 Share Posted February 16, 2006 Released today on the band's website is the announcement that Rick Rubin(Beastie Boys, Black Crowes, Def Jam, etc) is producing the next Metallica album! No mention of post-Justice producer Bob Rock(Bon Jovi, The Cult) at all. Many feel that once Rock came on as producer the sell out of the band was complete. Truth is the band, well,- Lars, brought him in to polish up the bands sound to reach the masses, whatever your thoughts are-that mission was accomplished. What expectations do you fans have with Rubin behind the sound? Few can argue that the production on St Anger was prehistoric sounding, maybe Bob 'Top 40' Rock had issue with this, leading to the change....? I have been a fan for almost 20 years, but I don't know quite what to take of this move. I have resigned myself to just look forward to seeing them live instead of having much faith in new material. Nothing shakes the foundations like live Metallica 'Hyptnotizing power, crushing all that cower....Battery is here to stay!!'
