Metallica fans: Our cups runneth over! The thrash-metal pioneers’ most recent album, Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, hits stores and online music services tomorrow, and early reviews are praising the band for returning to their 1980s roots. What’s more, Metallica has released videos for every song on the entire album! It’s an epic treat!
The video for Murder One may be of special interest to Horror Freaks still mourning the death of Motörhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, who died at the age of 70 less than 1 year ago.
The video, directed by Robert Valley, is an animated trip through Kilmister’s legendary career, and follows the rocker as he rises up through the ranks, first as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, and eventually as frontman for Motörhead. The clip begins in 1975 with Kilmister being ousted from the band Hawkwind, which lit the fire for him to form “the dirtiest band in the world.” The video features Kilmister’s iconic flowing hair, cowboy hat, and, of course, middle finger.
