In an interview made by Louder Sound, Pantera vocalist Phil Anselmo said that Metallica’s Load album was terrible.
During the interview, they asked “The Album That Should Not Be Is…” and he answered like that:
“I would have to say Load by Metallica. I mean, it’s a terrible record, man. I just don’t get it. If you’re gonna put out a record like that, just do a fucking side-project or something, ya know?”
Interviewer asked ‘the first album he had sex’, Anselmo responded:
“It was probably something like Mercyful Fate’s Melissa. It’s a toss-up between that or Slayer’s Haunting The Chapel EP. It’s hard to remember, I was very young. It could have been even earlier, something by Judas Priest… FUCK! It definitely wasn’t romantic, whatever it was!”
On the first album he bought, he said:
“I think it was Kiss Alive! It’s very underrated. When people listen to Kiss’s body of work and reflect on their 40-plus years, it can be a little embarrassing, but honestly that first live recording is a very powerful rock album that should not be overlooked.”
