DEDICATION TIME: METALLICA
by Richard Karsmakers
When we thought about dedicating this issue to something or
someone, we first got the thought of dedicating it against
something: House music. That kind of music sucks to high heaven,
and we really didn't have anything better to select. It was a
dedication we could both really identify, but hardly a perfect
one on moral grounds and all.
Then it suddenly dawned upon us. Sometimes you just don't look
close by and you just skip the obvious, and that's what we turned
out to have done - why not dedicate this issue to Metallica?
After all, both Stefan and myself were kinda deep into this band
and we have already strained ourselves significantly to promote
this particular band throughout out readership. Metallica, after
all, is without a doubt the prime heavy metal band.
We reckoned that they deserved it most. They have been a source
of inspiration ever since the late Volume 3 issues, and they have
been at the root of some rather zany stuff of ours. We have
included numerous of their excellent song lyrics throughout the
years, we have had novel characters bang their head to "Eye of
the Beholder", we have had Heavy Metal bimbos clad in tattered
Metallica T-shirts try to cure us from "Gridrunner" overkill, and
we have constantly supported all their albums. Their music is
the best you can get in the field of Heavy Metal, and it's the
perfect stuff to freak out utterly on.
And I haven't even mentioned some of the stuff only selected
people (i.e. some Nutty Norwegians) got to see and hear: The two
of us with towels on our head singing along with "One" on the
first ST NEWS Home Vid', the numerous appearances of the ST NEWS
chorus on Crazy Audio Tapes 'singing' along with "One" and "Fade
Therefore, this issue is dedicated to the Mother Of All Bands.
In other entries of this cascading menu you will find a complete
history of Metallica, as well as a complete discography. Those
articles have been based on a Metal Hammer special that occurred
in 1991 (Metallica and Sepultura special). We have sought
permission to use their publication to write our articles but
they have not replied ("no answer" means "yes", so...).
We believe that there may be some rather interesting facts in it
that you don't know yet.
The text of the articles is identical to the originals like they appeared in old ST NEWS issues. Please take into consideration that the author(s) was (were) a lot younger and less responsible back then. So bad jokes, bad English, youthful arrogance, insults, bravura, over-crediting and tastelessness should be taken with at least a grain of salt. Any contact and/or payment information, as well as deadlines/release dates of any kind should be regarded as outdated. Due to the fact that these pages are not actually contained in an Atari executable here, references to scroll texts, featured demo screens and hidden articles may also be irrelevant.
