1 ST Anger round your neck on Thu Sep 18, 2014 5:17 pm

St Anger is a misunderstood avant garde master piece, that summons visions of a world ravaged by depression, and capitalism, in which any outside of the norm are hounded into seeking redemption. In the track Frantic, we are told to keep searching among the frantic world, for someone or something that can truly be used to share ones repressed nature.
Furthering on this, Metallica took it even further, using the strange production and drum sound to give an air of building tension, of which many can understand in circumstances of extreme terror, emptiness, rage, or angst. Because of this the album is dismissed as terrible, as it takes every listener back to a place they do not want to be, it rubs them wrong, leaves them feeling empty, alone, cold. One could say it is an album expressing how one would feel locked under a totalitarian dictatorship, however it is infact about the cage of self conciousness erected around ourselves, and how deep down we know we are never free of the opinions of others, afraid that they know of your deepest perversions, fears, desires. It represents the hate and aggression that modern society masks with an air of commercialisation.
These themes could be proven with what Hetfield was going through at the time, with his alcohol problems, which would understandably give such a grim outlook on our life, and having been part of such a large band, so often called sell-outs, he would feel deeply judged by the fans he once adored and trusted, the ones of whom he remembers shouting "THIS IS OUR FIRST ALBUM, IT'S CALLED KILL 'EM ALL!" at. St Anger is the outcry of a distraught James Hetfield, devoured by the capitalist lifeblood of our world and despised for it, and the following albums LuLu and Death Magnetic show that he was once again locked away after this primal surge of hate and confusion. St Anger is a truly brutal, underrated album, commenting on human nature.
