It’s Metallica… what else do I need to say?
The second single lifted from this years Death Magnetic album has such a weird video to it – plenty of Russians, aliens and Zombies! And yes, this IS the official video for it – not a you tube fan made project!
The video is directed by Roboshobo. It depicts fictional Soviet newsreels about the Tunguska Event back in 1908. Around the impact site from a crashed meteor spores of an unknown species were discovered that can reanimate the dead. The Soviets exploit this as a weapon to turn the tide in a war against nuclear America.

Was it really seven years ago since I wrote this? Seven long years and still no follow up to Death Magnetic – as I’m assuming we’re all discounting the Lulu collaboration with Lou Reed?
A staple in the bands set between 2008 and 2011 and played a handful of times since. The last time I saw it performed live was at Yankee Stadium in New York when we went to see the Big 4.
I state in the original it’s the second single when in fact it’s the fifth. Three of those though were digital releases, so is it a real single with nothing physical?
