METALLICA: Japanese TV Interview With JAMES HETFIELD Posted Online

December 23, 2008

A recent Japanese TV interview with METALLICA frontman James Hetfield can be viewed below.

METALLICA has issued a new nine-minute video for the song "All Nightmare Long" from its latest album, "Death Magnetic". The clip, which premiered at, is a weird and creepy mix of animation and what is made to resemble old stock footage. It tells an alternate history story of mutant spores discovered by the Soviet Union and used as a biological weapon to turn U.S. citizens into zombies during the Cold War. The band performed the song itself live for the first time on December 5 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

James Hetfield told Sun Media that the lyrical content of "All Nightmare Long" was "an attempt to get back to the H.P. Lovecraft mythos" which Hetfield referenced on the band's classic 1986 track "The Thing That Should Not Be".
