However, John Dolmayan talks about Metallica album:
“Apart from the fact that there is no bass on it, it is the most complete set of songs that that band has ever written. The most complete, the most complex, there was so much fire in their bellies as they had just lost Cliff Burton.
So, I think emotionally it was where they were at their best. But, for me, it’s them at their most perfect, nothing can come before, and nothing has come since where they nailed it. They extended everything and for me, it is their apex.”
