There are a couple of passages where it reminds me of "Fuel", but now, with that "new" sound that the band brought in with Death Magnetic. This song is divided in two halves, in the first, the music is heavy, thrash metal oriented with a repetitive structure, while the second is much calmer at first, with emotional guitar riffs and a soft atmosphere, though after its intensity increases and takes us again to the rhythm and sound of the first part.
This song would perfectly fit in their album, though as well as the other three songs this is a leftover of Death Magnetic, or well, an unreleased track in better words. So the name of "Beyond Magnetic" is a reasonable title for this EP.
The last track is "Rebel of Babylon" whose eight minutes length makes it the longest composition here. It starts soft with distant guitars, seconds later the voice enters and then all of a sudden the song explodes, creating that powerful sound that we can expect in almost every of their songs.
This piece flows excellently, progressing and adding new elements while the seconds pass. Hammett's guitar figures and riffs are great during the whole track. I don't want to discuss the progressive element of this band, but they do have hints, maybe just brief, but they do, and this song is one example of it. This is by far the best track of this EP. Well, four unreleased tracks that can be now listened by the whole world, and though these are certainly good compositions, they are not the best of Metallica's repertoire, and I would honestly recommend it only for fans of this band, otherwise, it is better to get a full-length album instead of it.
My final grade, two stars. The sound production is still professional and powerful. All four tracks on the minutes long EP are entertaining, powerful and catchy. Metallica successfully manage to combine thrashy riffing with more melodic tinged and groove oriented heavy metal. The fact that the tracks feature a few surprises along the way also provide the EP with a longivity effect that not all releases possess.
Jokingly considered an apology to fans for the 'Lulu' album, which saw the band team up with Velvet Underground front man Lou Reed to absolutely dismal reviews , 'Beyond Magnetic' is an EP consisting of leftovers from the 'Death Magnetic' recording sessions. Somewhat viewed by fans as the band Your take on this EP may fall in line with what you think of that album. This is not quite up to After the disaster piece "Lulu" and the overall very negative reactions, Metallica try to beg for pardon with this release and want to underline their thirtieth anniversary at the same time.
During their four anniversary concerts in San Francisco, the band presented a brand new track each night a Beyond Magnetic EP is basicly 4 songs that weren't included on the Death Magnetic album, because they were restricted to have only 10 songs on that record.
