metallica_manunkind-2I never thought I’d be saying this in 2016, but Metallica’s new album sounds amazing. Every single has been pretty on point, and that trend continues with the latest track, “ManUNkind”. The track is 7+ minutes of groovy shred that never gets old, but feels like a band comfortable with their roots.

The video is special because it was directed by legend Jonas Akerlund, and offers a sneak at his upcoming film, Lords of Chaos, which tells the gritty true-crime tale of black metal band, Mayhem. The video centers around the fictional band which will star in the film, in addition to featuring cast members Rory Culkin, Jack Kilmer and Sky Ferreira.

Lords of Chaos has a US release pending in the next year, and Metallica’s Hardwired…To Self-Destruct drops everywhere, November 18th.
