2 stars 'Six Feet Down Under' is an Australian EP, released in 2010, to coincide with Metallica's visit to the continent. While Metallica's constant touring might be something the rest of the world take for granted, Australia and New Zealand very rarely get to see the metal legends, and so this was intended as a commemoration of the band returning to the land down under.

Of course, that won't stop us non-Australians from wanting to snap it up!

'Six Feet...' consists of eight songs. Two from each tour in which Metallica played Australia, and all are bootleg quality. As they are, they're very rough and in some cases pretty rubbish. But if nothing else, it's interesting to hear the different stages of the bands career throughout each couple of tracks.

As for the songs themselves? The choices are fine, and actually avoids the same played-out and repeated hits such as 'Enter Sandman' and 'Master of Puppets', for ones not so common these days, such as 'Eye of the Beholder', 'Through the Never' and 'Frantic'. Probably could have done without 'Low Man's Lyric' though.

But overall, this isn't something to take super seriously, and is more of a sentimental gesture to the fans down under than anything else. Worth owning if you're a die-hard fan, but not worth getting upset about when it fails to meet any expectations you may have had.
