Metallica: "Fade to Black" (Atlanta 2021)

Life, it seems, will fade away
Drifting further every day
Getting lost within myself
Nothing matters, no one else

I have lost the will to live
Simply nothing more to give
There is nothing more for me
Need the end to set me free

Things not what they used to be
Missing one inside of me
Deathly lost, this can't be real
Cannot stand this hell I feel

Emptiness is filling me
To the point of agony
Growing darkness taking dawn
I was me, but now he's gone

No one but me can save myself, but it's too late
Now I can't think, think why I should even try

Yesterday seems as though it never existed
Death greets me warm, now I will just say goodbye


Metallica: "Fade to Black"
Αναρωτιέμαι πόσα (και τι) καινούρια πράγματα μπορούν να ειπωθούν για μία από τις κλασικότερες heavy metal συνθέσεις. Μάλλον τίποτα που θα μπορούσε να συμπληρώσει αυτά που θα μπορούσε να προσθέσει κάτι στον "μύθο" του. Ο λόγος για το "Fade to Black" των Metallica.

Το γνωρίσαμε στον δεύτερο δίσκο των Αμερικανών metallers "Ride the Lightning" που κυκλοφόρησε το καλοκαίρι του 1984 ("χρυσή" χρονιά για το heavy metal το 1984), ενώ κυκλοφόρησε και αυτόνομα (ως single). Ο James Hetfield σε συνέντευξή του το μακρινό 1991 στο περιοδικό Guitar World είχε πει για το τραγούδι:

«That song was a big step for us. It was pretty much our first ballad, so we knew it would freak people out... Recording that song, I learned how frustrating acoustic guitar can be. You could hear every squeak, so I had to be careful. I wrote the song at a friend's house in New Jersey.

I was pretty depressed at the time because our gear had just been stolen, and we had been thrown out of our manager's house for breaking shit and drinking his liquor cabinet dry. It's a suicide song, and we got a lot of flak for it, as if kids were killing themselves because of the song. But we also got hundreds of letters from kids telling us how they related to the song and that it made them feel better.
