Kirk did most of Metallica's solos, but James sometimes had them, here and there.

If you listen to Metallica a lot, you'll be able to kinda tell who's doing it, at least I can with some of them.

Dave is definitley a better guitar player, that can be heard in the dueling lead guitars in megadeth songs. I like Hetfield's voice better though.......

yeah, mustaine is a whiner and an asshole but, Mustaine kicks the shit out of hetfield and his fucking dog. mustaine plays a shit load better than hetfield plus it took longer for megadeth to sell out then it did metallica, so megadeth kicks metallica into the big piece of horse shit lars ulrich came from and that's that

You've gotta keep this in mind: Dave is/was a (now-recovering) heroin addict, in addition to several other substances. My guess is he may have been a great guitarist, but not exactly the greatest guy to be around. Rumors are that's why Friedman left.

and IMO, 'Tallica would still be metal if they had Cliff...

vocally, i like hetfield better.... mustaine i believe is a better guitarist that james, but kirk would woop mustaine's ass anyday in a guitar duel... but dont get me wrong, megadeth kicks ass... im not a big fan of megadeth, and metallica is the first band i ever got into so they stuck with me.

Mustain = Better guitarist.
Hetfield = Better vocalist.

I was fairly dissapointed with Megadeth's double live album in terms of vocals, not only did they sound shit but he coudn't even hit half the notes towards the end. Pretty dissapointing for a professional.

Dave Mustatine, total fuckin' shredder and wicked fast difficult licks, complex intricate rhythms. Hetfield, non-alternate picking shithead. Plus Metallica sold out way before Megadeth. I don't know, I kind of feel sorry for Mustaine. Yeah he was kind of a dick and did way too much drugs, but eh could still play way better than James.

I agree, Hetfield sings like those damn NASCAR bands, which first of all is not original.Hetfield should of sticked to the old stuff....And I also beleive that Mustaine
has way better shredding skills than Hetfield..When was the last time I ever heard Hetfield make a badass Shred?
....Um....Let me see
NEVER!

i listen to Nothing Else Matters and it sounds like James Hetfield didn't warm up his voice and just went at it...i can't believe they even recorded that track (this is all in my opinion obviously)

Goddamn! it's "megadeth" not "megadeath"...sure it's kind of got a rappish touch to it...but it was like 1985. Metallica sucks..it's not metal and hasnt been for like ten years. i vote for Mustaine because megadeth only sold out like a year ago, and Mustaine is a way better guitar player even though he can't sing.
What happened metallica? you used to be cool.

megadeth are a way better band, but we r talkin bout the 2 frontman, and mustaine is a way better guitar player, but his vocals do let him down in a lot of his songs

Hetfeild can shread like shit too, he just doesn't show off, he knows his place is a rythm guitarist and vocalist and he knows to stay there, which makes a guitarist good when you only do what your part says. But he gets a couple solos in and out, and you dont even know it until you see it live. And hetfeild's vocals are 20,000 times better than mustaine's vocals. Mustaine's vocals kinda remind me of a comic book, if it were to have sound. So hetfeild.

Mustaine. Listen to Hangar 18. Enough said. Hetfield's leads (what few there may be) are boring and uninspired.

I'm more partial to Mustaine's vocals, but Hetfield can sing better. Not anymore, though.

Dude, are you insane? Kirk sucks. Just watch some of their live videos and you'll see it for yourself. He is so fucking sloppy, he fucks up all the time, can't even play half his damn solos, and is addicted to his fucking wah pedal. When it comes to wah, he has zero creativity. It's just wah, wah, wah, wah, stupid. I have heard many guitarists who used a wah pedal and it just gave their playing a whole new dimension, it was crazy; Hammett's not one of them.
I think that even Hetfield is a better guitarist than Kirk Hammett. He is an awesome vocalist, at least was up until St. Anger. He is a much better vocalist than Dave, especially live, but one must keep in mind that while James is singing he is usually playing some pretty straight forward and fairly simply rhythm stuff, whereas Dave is singing and ripping up insane solos at the same time. It's a miracle the guy can sing at all when he's playing that shit.
Megadeth's music is also a hell of a lot more complex than Metallica's. And Dave didn't start doing Heroin until he was kicked out of Metallica. He was just a nasty drunk and used to beat the shit out of people when he'd get wasted.
As far as Metallica still being metal, I don't think that Cliff being alive would make a whole hell of a lot of difference. After all, he was just the bass player, (a damn good one, but still just the bass player). He didn't start the band, James and Lars did, and it was therefore them who decided which direciton Metallica and its music took.
Also, The System Has Failed kicks the shit out of St. Anger any day of the week. I am a huge Metallica fan, but am also a huge Megadeth fan as well.
Anyway, here's my final two cents.
Dave Mustaine = amazing guitarist, way better than both James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett combined. Although he may have been an arrogant cunt, there's no denying this.
James Hetfield = amazing vocalist and songwriter, always was way better at singing than Dave, and he's also a pretty good guitar player. He may be an arrogant, self indulgent cunt now, but there's no denying that he wrote some of the greatest metal classics of all time.

Hetfield.

Hetfield has better vocals and riffs, but Mustaine is a better soloist.

here's another thought. why do they have to be matched up in the first place? why can't they be enjoyed for what they are, two very different thrashers?

They are matched up so as to inspire debate, Mr Transient. If the thread was Hetfield AND Mustaine rather than Hetfield OR Mustaine it would just be a giant love-fest of a thread which, of course, would just inspire jets of vomit to spew forth from all those who only have a hard-on for one or t'other.

Besides a thread expounding the virtues of both would quickly turn into a "Vs" thread anyway.

How come Metallica never sound in tune when they play live?
(And as mentioned earlier, Kirk does play some real duff howlers live!)
James was a good front man.
Dave's vocals ain't the best...but fuck me could he come up with the riffs or what!!!! Plus it can't be easy singing over the top of those riffs?
Personally I loved 'em both back in the old days and listened to them equally.

Is that sitting on the fence too much????

I dislike James for..... well, being part of the band that released st anger. I don`t really know that much about Dave, but i heard he kicked Dissection of a tour, just because they didn`t exactly share his view on religion. I maybe wrong about him, but from what i have heard, he sounds pretty arogant.

Dude, Jon from Dissection is such a satanist its not even funny. How would you feel having someone on the tour who constantly praises satan, and bashes YOUR religion. It makes perfect sense.

I would've gone if Dis were there. Now I might just go for DT and Deth.

But seriously. Its not because Mustaine is arrogant about religion. Its because Jon is a pansy satanist/"anti-cosmic." What a fucktard.

here. i just did some stupid quoting tricks. this is my opinion.
James- Pretty good vocalist, pretty good guitar player, wrote some good riffs, but the fills are just boring.

Dave- Really unique (and IMO better) vocals, Amazing guitar/songwriting abilities, great at fills, great at solos.. so i chose dave, and you know why. I like megadeth better then metallica, but i love metallica (obviously i mean before st anger).

I don't care about their personalitys. It's the music. Dave is an arrogant cunt that likes pushing people around.. but i wouldnt skip a Deth show for that reason. It's all about the music.

personally, I don't give a fuck, which is what I told my friend yesterday (about Dave Mustaine's religious stuff). The music isn't any different whether its Dave Mustaine's religious ass playing it, or Hetfield's... ugly ass mullet thing...

Hands down Mustaine wins. I will say that I love Mustaine's vocals and think they fit his music quite well. He has some quite creative rhythmn riffs and solos also.

Mustaine is infinitly more creative then Metallica. Period. That and Hammet saturates his solo's in wah.

I see your point, but by kicking them of the tour he must have pissed of lots of dissection fans. Anyway, I agree that the personality of a bandmember shouldn`t stop me from liking his music.

How do we know Mustaine kicked dissection off the show in Isreal for being Satanist cunts and they didn't just said, "Fuck it! We quit and we are going to tell the world you did it because of religion becasue that is what good Satanist do". Dave has never held anyone else accountable to religion. It is a personal thing and not a music thing. He has never in the years of being a born again Christian fucked anyone over because of religion.

I say there is more to the story then we know.

As much as I love Dissection,thats probably right.Jon is worse than Glen Benton when it comes to bragging about how satanic he is.I like Megadeth also so I'm fifty-fifty.

Actually the promotors kicked Dissection off the tour.. they obviously know who will sell more seats.

The way I see it, even Megadeth's zenith - Rust In Peace - cannot compare to either Ride The Lightning, Master Of Puppets or And Justice for All. And before all you Megadeth fanboys jump in with, "That's because Mustaine wrote those albums," he didn't; get over it.

Sure, the solos on RIP are better than those Metallica albums, but I have two words as to why: "Marty" and "Friedman". Mustiane is a better soloist than Hetfield, but none of his leads have ever inspired me to the same extent as Hammet's on the aforemetioned Metallica albums. Hammet only really began to saturate his solos with wah from the Black Album onwards when he started to shun classical leanings in favour of a blues influence - he doesn't overdo it on the preceding albums. Has Mustaine ever written a solo as mindblowing as Dyer's Eve? Nope.

When the dust settles, they will BOTH still be standing as giants of the thrash scene and two of the leading lights that shaped the music we love. But I still maintain that Metallica had a bigger influence than Megadeth and this quite simply has to be down to Lars, Cliff, Kirk and - most importantly in the context of this thread - James.

I have to concur with the comment about Kirks studio solos on the first few albums(ok not Kill 'em All as he just borrowed Dave's) Dyer's Eve is possibly the best/ignored Metallica song and Kirk's solo is incredible. But just listen to the Disposable Heroes or Damage Inc solos there's melody and mayhem and you can hum or sing them(possibly)! I found that very inspiring and influential.
Dave's solos, though good, didn't inspire me as much as his riffs or song writing did and most of his solos seem to end the same with the climactic run up to the 22nd or 24th fret and bend and hold.
Sadly Kirk has lost it with the purchase of the wah and insistence on the pentatonic and I feel that is a blatant waste of his talent

Man, it's not even just about the guitar solos for me, I just like Megadeth's more consistency and overall sound that's more technical than Metallica's. Even in their RTL and MOP days, Metallica sounds so redundant to ME

Anyone can sound good on recordings. Ashley Simpson can, and so can Kirk Hammet. But it's the live show that really makes or breaks you.
Kirk's been using that wah since way before the black album. You can hear it on every single album, except maybe Kill 'Em All.
I've watched a bunch of Metallica live videos lately and was absolutely appalled by Hammet's sloppiness and inconsistency. He fucks up all the time. Keep in mind that these are the songs he's been playing for 15-20 years now, so he should have them down pat by now. He doesn't. And then every live solo ends with some silly tapping and endless wah bullshit. The guy is absolutely horrible.
James isn't as bad, but he fucks up quite a bit lately, too. I saw a vid of them playing One, and on the clean intro pat, James kept speeding up and then slowing down. You'd expect something like this out of an amateur, but not a seasong veteran. James' playing and singing has gotten much vorse as time went on. I think that Metallica have gotten too comfortable and simply don't care about the music any more.
I will see Megadeth in August and my expectations are high, and I'm sure that Dave and the crew will live up to them. I might even post a review on these boards if I remember, and I'll tell you all in detail about the show and how it went.

The idea of doing recordings is so you sound your best
Yes Kirk did use wah on albums prior to the 'Black' album but not to the level of annoying overkill on every solo. Metallica even got him a mat for it and christened it 'Kirk's wah wah mat' so maybe even they were taking the piss and he failed to pick up the hint!!
Yes I agree with the Kirk live playing stuff(see post 73)

As for James speeding up and slowing down...he was probably trying to keep in time with the drumming! Ha hahahaha!!!!

Dave is still putting out good albums... Metallica arent... end of story... and i dont care how many times its been said already...

Kicking Dave out of the band was the worst possible thing they could have done... desides get sober... considering that most of there good stuff was writen by Dave and that he was the best guitar player to be in the band...

although i have to thank them.. because if they would ahve let him stay.. Megadeth would have never formed
