It’s time for us to turn it up to “11” thanks to Metallica who have released a video for every single one of their songs on the closer than ever to release “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” album. There are “13” in full and yeah we are up to the eleventh hour one at this point. I’ve been making sure to speak to every clip for good measure and this one is thanks to the talents of Robert Valley. Dig in.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: I loved this one from beginning to end because it was a homage to the late great Lemmy Kilmister of the mighty Motorhead. It’s an animated clip as well but seemed to use real photographs that were reworked to fit the visual narrative. We watch Lemmy from his beginnings as a roadie to Hendrix to joining Hawkwind onto forming the powerful Motorhead. The clip is loaded with Lemmy visual references such as Jack Daniels whiskey, his smokes, the Iron Cross and even his favorite video poker machine. Be sure to watch this one a couple of times so you catch everything. It’s a clip that has a lot of quick Easter Eggs as they call them and you risk missing out should you blink. Well done and we are closing in on the final videos. Let me know what you thought of this one and see you again soon.
