It sounds like a laser problem, and it may need replacing. A short term fix (it may work, did for me,) is to turn your console the opposite way you have it now, for example if you have it lying vertically then change it to horizonal and vice versa.

Another thing I tried was opening the cdrom drawer and blew into it to remove any dust.

I hope this helps.

If it's the big one, the sensor's dirty, and'll needed to be cleaned or replaced. If it's the small one, it might've overheated, and will need to be replaced.

GH: Metallica hangs at first load screen

Haven't got scratches or fingerprints on the disk have you? I thought that might affect it that way so maybe a clean or a polish with a scratch remover product would help. I am guessing other games will still play as normal from your description.

Taking lot of time to load and hang while loading.

ensure the underside of the disks are clean, and scratch free.
Use a CD lens cleaner, to remove any dust/debris from the laser head.
If still fails, laser-head is weak or in need of re-calibration.
