Metallica release 'Atlas, Rise!'
Metallica’s upcoming 10th studio album has been in the works for a long time now, but every day brings fans closer to Hardwired … To Self-Destruct. On Monday, the band released a new single from the album: “Atlas, Rise!”
The video actually shows the band recording in the studio, surrounded by their own posters and memorabilia. In classic Metallica fashion, the song features some thrashing guitar from Kirk Hammett and howling singing from James Hetfield.
2016 has been a big year for Metallica. In addition to the new album, they’ve also reissued earlier material like Kill ‘Em All and Ride the Lightning.
Listen to “Atlas, Rise!” below. Hardwired … To Self-Destruct is out Nov. 18.
