As they wrap up a long string of videos spanning thirty years' worth of live performances between the release of ...And Justice for All and now, Metallica have dropped a video for the album's epic title-track filmed at the 2014 edition of Quebec festival Heavy Montreal.
Featuring enormous stage production value and a flashy, drawn out entrance, the band expertly whip through the nearly 10-minute winding and complex track like the seasoned pros they are as the multiple cameras scanning the stage and crowd capture detailed up-close and wide-angle shots. As Kirk Hammett and James Hetfield converge mid-stage for the wrought dueling guitar segment, huge screens behind them flash bright green and blue, bathing them in dramatic light as they charge full-speed toward the blockbuster conclusion.
The long-awaited box set for the album is finally available and the thrashers will pick back up their World Wired Tour later this month in Las Vegas, Nevada. Check the official website for dates near you.
