New Metallica Song "Moth Into Flame"

Motherfucker it’s good to hear new a new Metallica song! The ‘tallica boys released the latest track “Moth Into Flame” from their upcoming album “Hardwired…To Self Destruct.” And let me just say it’s a classic heavy metal riff fest.

Check out the official music video below:

I’ve been a huge unapologetic fan of this band for most of my life. The fact that these dudes are still doing their thing seems like no small feat. From their return to thrash roots on 2008’s “Death Magnetic” to the mega-groove-riffage on “Moth to the Flame” it seems like Metallica still have what it takes to bring the crunch.

From Metallica:

We’re back!! Welcome to track number two from Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, “Moth Into Flame.” As some of you accurately predicted, we gave it the first public spin while hanging out with our great friend Howard Stern this morning in his New York studio. Sitting and chatting with Howard is one our favorite things to do and we were honored that he offered to play it first and let us perform a few additional songs live while we were there. We’re also excited to debut the corresponding video directed by Tom Kirk of Muse fame.

Just to refresh your memories, ‘Hardwired…To Self-Destruct’ hits the streets on November 18, 2016 and was produced by Greg Fidelman, along with James and Lars, and is available for pre-order in a variety of configurations including 12 songs on a double CD, vinyl, digital download, as well as a deluxe version including cover songs and live tracks.

We are just getting started, so keep watching this space for more information, more tour dates and just in general, more Metallica!! IT’S ON!

I thought the first single off the new record, “Hardwired,” was badass — this new tune is a banger! This metalhead can’t wait to get his hands on “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” available everywhere on November 18.
