I love "fly on the wall" music documentaries where you're in the studio with the band, watching them actuate during the creative process. It's just me living vicariously through cool people. See, I've always wanted to be in a band. A real band, not Dark Fuck or whatever the hell it was called (I was in a shitty "band" a decade ago; the three of us never met in the flesh and the "leader" found Jesus after one month and quit). "Quotation marks." So yeah, I geeked out watching the above clip. Metallica has...eh, I need a new paragraph.
Found one! Metallica has been posting "making of" videos for each track on Hardwired to Self-Destruct. They did the same deal for Death Magnetic, and I think it's awesome. There are only a handful so far, but it seems to be a weekly (or bi-weekly) upload. No, I won't be reviewing the album. I will say that it's their mightiest effort since 1991, and "Spit Out the Bone" is their best song since 1988. "Confusion" is my second favorite cut on the record. It's as catchy as tuberculosis as Hepatitis B combined, yo!
