Dude, he can barely hold his timing anymore
The best he's ever given is on ...AJFA. Ever since then he's gotten worse and worse, to the point where he can't even play the old songs right anymore.
Someone rightfully said once: "The Black Album is Lars' final victory over the band, he's finally won the right to be fucking lazy on that album". Or something similar.

I'm actually trying to say that Lars is not an "Awful" drummer, not that he's a great drummer. I don't know if that has entered your thick skull yet. I know that there are other drummers that are way better than him; hell, I can list a bunch on my own! But that doesn't make it right to call someone awful; just because someone else is better I mean.
#113 - vexaton (10/26/2014) [-]
I was at one of the concerts of that tour, and I actually like the drums on many of those tracks. I can see what you mean, that he can't keep his timing well, but he's still not awful! I'm awful! now, compared to me, Lars is a fucking god. Compared to the gods of drums, Lars is awful, but on his own, Lars is not a terrible drummer. IN MY OWN OPINION THAT IS
#38 - snohball (10/26/2014) [-]
Look at every heavy metal drummer for their fills and technique. They tend to be more extravagant whereas Lars isn't the best drummer, maybe awful was a little harsh.
But he's not as good as his competitors like Menza, Peart, Lombardo or Jordison.
But I must say his changes are very noticeable and good for keeping Metallica tight, he's an amazing time keeper. Whereas with these other drummers, there time keeping is pretty decent but not as good as Lars, you know when there's a break or time change coming with Metallica songs.
#115 - mahnamesjakers (10/26/2014) [-]
Being good at the drums is not all about playing in a really technical way. I do agree that all of the drummers you listed are better than Lars (although I don't know how Peart fits with the rest). However, I think that stylistically Lars is one of my favorite drummers, and I always found his fills to be powerful. He always finds that perfect rhythm to go along with Kirk and James' perfect riffs and I love it. He may not have been the best but he had a ton of energy and what he played for Metallica was perfect for their music and I don't think any drummer could replace what he brought to Metallica. I'm a huge Metallica fan but don't confuse me for a fanboy, I'm a bigger fan of Tool anyway. Now if you were to call Danny Carey awful, well you're just flat out insane.
#39 - vexaton (10/26/2014) [-]
Yeah that's true, I don't really listen that much to the drums. In slipknot songs for an example, I listen to the drums and the vocals mostly, because Jordison is a fucking beast, and Corey has the voice of a god.
When it comes to Lars though, I really like his fills in some songs. Like "Frantic" and "No leaf clover". I just love the orchestral theme in that one, haha.
Thanks for understanding me, rather than flipping out. Most people would be mad at someone who disagrees.
#41 - snohball (10/26/2014) [-]
It's fine. Music is my passion! Also Corey Taylor is god tier at what he does.
But you see what I mean? When you hear a Slipknot song you get all pumped up and you can feel the beat hitting you ALL THE TIME!
Whereas with Metallica, like for example it has a simple drumbeat but the middle breakdown section has an amazing beat to it, whist keeping time ever so well.
#45 - vexaton (10/26/2014) [-]
When it comes to slipknot, for an example with "Psychosocial", you can't NOT flail your head about like a lunatic. It hits so hard!
#98 - snohball (10/26/2014) [-]
To be fair, I don't listen to Metallica religiously, imo, they're so overrated because they're one of the only decent bands to come from America during the 80's and I prefer Megadeth anyway.
Go and listen to some of their tracks, he's a fantastic time keeper, but a pretty mediocre drummer.
#108 - tkfourtwoone (10/26/2014) [-]
Well I learned most of my guitar playing from Metallica songs, to the point where only songs like Blackened give me real problems.
And trust me, after listening to so much Metallica AND seeing them perform live... well, at almost any time somewhere after 1992, you realize just how fucking bad he is.
#119 - snohball (10/26/2014) [-]
Anyway back to my point. Please disprove me on how he's not a good time keeper.
Listen to his fills considering you're the super fan here....
You should be able to see the power in his fills are perfect for time keeping. Compare Where Eagles Dare by Iron Maiden for example... The fills in that are to show off Nicko McBrain's skill, Then if you look at For Whom the Bell Tolls, you can see how clear his beats are timed and positioned.
#124 - snohball (10/26/2014) [-]
To me he stayed the same all through his career, just like Hammett.
He's still doing the same as he's always done, keeping time. You're clearly not listening to me, I'm agreeing, his technique is utter wank.
No wonder you're opinion is like this if you're learning Metallica's riffs..
#125 - tkfourtwoone (10/26/2014) [-]
"To me he stayed the same all through his career, just like Hammett. "
If you mean they both went from "sparks of brilliancy to decent to bad to shit", you'd probably be right.
P.S.: Of course I'm learning Metallica's riffs! Hetfield & Burton (with some touches here & there from Newstead & Trujillo) were the actual musical brains behind Metallica (90% of their songs are basically Hetfield's work anyhow)
P.P.S.: *your opinion. Just saying.
#127 - snohball (10/26/2014) [-]
Hetfeild can only produce decent rhythm, the best band member from Metallica was Mustaine. Lars has been consistent in my eyes.
>Spark of Brilliance
There wasn't much there in the first place... Hammett stayed at one level and never got better. Kids learning E pentatonics could do the same as him.
#128 - tkfourtwoone (10/26/2014) [-]
"Hetfeild can only produce decent rhythm, the best band member from Metallica was Mustaine"
You're forgetting the fact that Het wrote riffs infinitely better than Mustaine. Mustaine is a way better lead guitarist than Hammet, I'll give him that, but he's not touching Hetfield as far as anthem-ic riffs go.
And yeah, Hammet did have his "sparks of brilliance" in some of his most simplistic solos... like Fade to Black or The Unforgiven. I consider those his best solos (as in what a GUITAR SOLO should be, should transmit, etc... beauty in simplicity that goes along very well with the overall flow of the song), though his solos on Ride The Lightning or Leper Messiah or Call of Ktulu are not to be dissed either
#129 - snohball (10/26/2014) [-]
You do know Mustaine has unnamed writing credits for Ride the Lightning?
"infinitely better" Look up the Spider chord, Mustaine utilised and introduced that to the world and Metallica has used it many a time. Wake up Dead > Ride the Lightning in rhythmical aspects, there's so much more happening musically. The thing I can give to all my points to Hetfield on, is his great down-picking ability.
I could churn out a Hammett solo easily, he's far too predictable. Slow arpeggios, double string barring thrown with the bends, maybe some two handed tapping, don't forget his sloppy playing so he can cover it behind his Dunlop crybaby. Compare Hammett to the likes of Van Halen, Marty Friedman and Dave Murray, they were all so good at going that one step further of elongating and manipulating bends or showing their legato styles.
I can tell you're just fanboying and not listening, so I'm just not going to continue wasting my time. I stand by my original statement that Lars is a good timekeeper, which you still haven't disproved.

*Replying here because hurr durr FJ reply limit*
"You do know Mustaine has unnamed writing credits for Ride the Lightning?"
Well duh, everybody knows that. Also for Call of Ktulu (Hangar 18) and possibly for another song of RTL.
"Look up the Spider chord, Mustaine utilised and introduced that to the world and Metallica has used it many a time"
Ahhh, the famous spider-chord cliche... yes, Mustaine used it in a metal song for the first time, but name me ONE other song where Metallica has used it. That's right, there is none except for RTL
"The thing I can give to all my points to Hetfield on, is his great down-picking ability"
...and the absolutely skull-crushing, percussion-like riffs. From "For Whom The Bell Tolls" to "The Thing That Should Not Be" to "Leper Messiah" to "Harvester of Sorrow", each and every one of them also carrying that sense of evil omen and dread.
As for Hammet... dude, perhaps you didn't realize the fact that we agree on him!
Even more so since the guitarists I'm looking up for learning now are Michael & Cristopher Ammot, Dimebag & Chuck Schuldiner, which are all light-years above and away from Whammet!
YES! His technique is sloppy
YES! His solos are predictable (pentatonic build up, bend that shit, arpeggio that shit, run up that shit, bend that 22th/24th shit, run down that shit, now tremolo that shit) BUT some of them are so good because... they fit!
Is "The Unforgiven" solo simplistic as fuck? Yes it is! Does it sound so good and fit the song so well and manages to transmit the feeling of the song? Yes it does!
And that's about the only credits I'm willing to give to Whammet.
As for Lars and his "good timekeeping"... 1) That's what a drummer does, ffs! It's like praising Hetfield for knowing a few power chords! 2) Sometimes during live shows he fails to do even that, hell sometimes his timing was WAY off!
P.S.: inb4 Mustaine's statement that Metallica's best show was with Joey Jordison...
#131 - snohball (10/27/2014) [-]
I agree his live drumming is shit, listen to the Album work, what I'm saying is: compare his studio stuff with the likes of any other studio drummer...
You'll come to realize his drumming ability is that of being a good time keeper. He waits on the time changes well and produces clean and noticeable fills, making sure everyone in the band knows that a change or break is going to happen. Now if you look at other artists, you can see between breaks you'll get blast beats, full run of the mill chops across the kit and if you've ever been in a band it's pretty hard to nail it dead on for the timing of the next bar.
