Metallica Deliver Dark Performance for ‘Now That We’re Dead’ Video
Are you digging the Metallica's Hardwired ... To Self-Destruct roll out? The band has yet another video to share with the release of their "Now That We're Dead" clip.
The group has been releasing videos every two hours via a number of different outlets, with the latest clip to arrive being "Now That We're Dead." The promo comes from Herring and Herring, who also designed the amazing album artwork for the band's new album. In the video above, we see a performance piece featuring the band. It starts with the directors keeping the band's faces from the viewing audience and eventually offers more striking visuals of the members utilizing close-ups and lighting throughout. By the mid-section we begin to see facial overlays that are similar to the ones seen in the band's artwork for their new album.
As for the song, it's a foot-tappingly awesome track with a repetitive guitar line at the beginning of the song that just pulls you in. The band never strays too far from the hook, but it's one guaranteed to keep you rocking and James Hetfield delivers a sinister story about finding comfort after the final breath has been drawn. "Now that we're dead my dear / We can be together / Now that we're dead my dear / We can live forever" he belts in the chorus.
"Now That We're Dead" is featured on the Hardwired ... To Self-Destruct album, which is currently available to pre-order at this location. The album officially arrives this Friday (Nov. 18) with the band webcasting their release day performance from the House of Vans in London. The group has a few more shows this year, with the 2017 tour schedule starting to build. See where they're playing here.
