Metallica Spill Blood at Black Metal Show For ‘ManUNkind’ Video
Here’s Metallica’s next piece of their unrelenting Hardwired… to Self-Destruct video series. This one’s for “ManUNkind” from disc two of the band’s 10th studio album.
“ManUNkind” is a mid-tempo jam from the four horsemen clocking in at just under seven minutes. It’s also the only Hardwired track with a writing credit from bassist Robert Trujillo. And if you love your Kirk Hammett solos with extra wah, you’ll dig the bridge of this new cut.
Ever wonder what Metallica would look like as a black metal band? “ManUNkind” features a corpse-painted four-piece whose vocalist loves to slice themselves open and pour blood on rabid crowd members. A pig’s head even gets passed around the audience. The video for “ManUNkind” was directed by Jonas Åkerlund, whose massive resume includes clips for Rammstein and Ozzy Osbourne along with pop superstars like Madonna and Beyonce.
