While Wednesday 13 admits he may not be the biggest Metallica fan there is, he still enjoys them enough to have a favorite album of theirs! Via a recent conversation with Radioactive MikeZ of Wired In The Empire, Wednesday was asked which Metallica song he would cover if he had to.
Wednesday not only shared that song, but also spoke to his favorite album from the band. (All quotes transcribed by Blabbermouth):
“My favorite Metallica record is …And Justice For All. I’m not a giant Metallica fan. I definitely respect ’em and I know a lot of their stuff, but the …And Justice For All record was one of my favorites. I like ‘The Shortest Straw’ song. I thought that was a cool song. That would probably be the one I would pick, if I could cover it, and I’d put some real bass in it. [Laughs].”
Wednesday then went on to share his thoughts and address some of the production related criticism that has been said about the album:
“To me, it had that same production almost… The drums on that record kind of sounded like Anthrax to me. But I [was] playing these cassettes and stuff through a little tiny boombox that didn’t even have bass on it. So I never really paid attention to it like that. I don’t think I really even noticed it till people started talking about it — for me.”
There you have it folks! Wednesday 13’s favorite Metallica album is …And Justice For All! What is your favorite Metallica album?
