“I was at my friend Eddie Van Kuren‘s house in NJ and he said I wouldn’t believe how fast and heavy this band Metallica was. I had never heard them before and they blew my mind out. I thought it was insane that a band could play that fast on every song. It was like a musical roller coaster that never stopped or slowed down. It set the bar higher for the new generation of metal bands. After that bands had to play faster with more complex and inventive riffing. To this day, ‘No Remorse’ is still one of my favorite Metallica songs. I still get that same feeling when I hear it today as I did when I was a teenager.”
