Metallica’s New Single “The Day That Never Comes”: First Review

After premiering a new song from Death Magnetic called "Cyanide" during their Ozzfest set, today Metallica.com posted a trashcan-fidelity stream of "The Day That Never Comes," the official first single from the album. The eight-minute song opens with a half-tempo groove before upping the pace near the five-minute mark, and is punctuated by lead guitar that is more about quick stabs than full-on soloing. Call it "The Unforgiven" meets "Bleeding Me" with a dash of "Am I Evil?" thrown in for the faster section, and don't think too hard when James Hetfield reminds us that "love is a four-letter word."
