In a latest interview with RadioactiveMike Z, host of the 96.7 KCAL-FM radio program “Wired In The Empire”, former ILL NIÑO and present LIONS AT THE GATE singer Cristian Machado was requested about his introduction to the music of METALLICA. He stated (as transcribed by Phoosi.com): “My introduction to METALLICA was ‘Grasp Of Puppets’. I bear in mind residing in New York Metropolis. My Polish cousin, sarcastically — I am a Latino, however I’ve a small a part of my household that is from Poland — he had visited our household from Poland. And apparently, I realized that day that in Europe, and particularly in Jap Europe, they’re on to underground metallic manner sooner than People are. Again then within the ’80s, Europeans and Jap Europeans have been on to the metallic bands manner earlier than America even exploded it. And he had come down and he took me to a file retailer and ‘Grasp Of Puppets’ was one of many albums that he purchased that day. And I am going to by no means the listening expertise that I had; to my ears, it was out of this world, it was nearly alien and I used to be interested in it instantly — instantly.”
He continued: “One among my favourite METALLICA songs is certainly off ‘…And Justice For All’, ‘Dyers Eve’, which I at all times felt was such an excessive METALLICA tune that at all times felt simply subsequent stage for them. However the ‘Grasp Of Puppets’ album is what holds a real place in my coronary heart as a METALLICA fanboy in my early age.”
When RadioactiveMike Z opined out that there is not a weak tune on “Grasp Of Puppets”, Machado concurred. “Completely,” he stated. “And even until the top, with songs like ‘Leper Messiah’ and issues like that, they simply drilled the nail so exhausting on that album; they did not lose focus, each tune was intentional and intense, and so they sounded their very own. That they had their very own sound on the time in thrash metallic, and I feel that also continues to be one thing that is essential in music.”
