Lars Ulrich is losing it. He can't play most of the more demanding songs anymore and it sounds like he is having a hard time keeping up with the easier ones now. There comes a point when a musician needs to hang it up, and Lars is fast approaching that time.

Ya know, I thought I heard him noticably slow up a time or two during One, but I thought I was just hammered.

Ya know, I thought I heard him noticably slow up a time or two during One, but I thought it was just because I was hammered.

What causes that to happen to a musician?

I understand an athlete losing a step or two but a musician unable to play his own music anymore? Is it physical, mental, or just overall burnout?

Yeah, if he has a hard time with one, then it's no wonder he doesn't play Blackened, AJFA, and Dyers Eve anymore.

It's probably the physical part. Some of his earlier songs were/are very hard to play. Dyers Eve for example. It's double bass throughout the whole song. Lots of blast beats as well. The older you get the less stamina you have and that song definately will take a lot out of you.

*disclaimer* I can't play that song either, I'm just a beginner but its pretty obvious how hard it is. Blackened and AJFA aren't too much easier either.

The amount of vag in your post is overwhelming.

Lamb of God is one of those metal bands that comes along once every 20 years or so and just blows everyone else out of the water. Lamb of God pretty much revived the groove metal genre that Pantera started and then to proceded to evolve it into something soo much better.

Whats with calling the lead singer a douche? Seriously? Just because you don't like "cookie monster" vocals anymore (but yet you listen to Sepultura and it doesn't get much more cookie monster than that) does not make him a douche. Randy Blythe has a one of a kind voice that is f**king amazing. He also writes some of the smartest, most poignant lyrics I have ever had the pleasure of listening to.

On a side note, I totally agree about the drummer. Chris Adler is my idol. The dude rocks the f**k out of those drums and his double bass skills are unparalelled.

Maybe it had something to do with his comments between songs, but you would have had to be there.........*cough*

Lars definitely can't handle a lot of the songs anymore. I would have loved to hear Dyers Eve but I doubt he can do it. One may be the only song off that album he can handle anymore (sort of ). He's still great and wrote some good stuff, but those legs are probably getting tired, I don't think a lot of people understand how hard and demanding double bass is (especially throughout a whole song).

However James and Kirk still rock out and it was nice hearing Rob live, cause you can't hear much of his bass work on the new album, but he's a good player.

Actually it was how he slurped a different band between each song and dedicated them to said band. That and he just seemed like a douche, sometimes guys are just douches, you should know

:rolleyes5:

I think he has some sort of degenerative condition, he got up between almost every song, maybe he's the michael j fox of metal drummers
