Metallica – “Hardwired” (Music Video)


After a pretty lengthy hiatus–has it really been eight years since Death Magnetic?–the Thrash Metal legends have returned. Hardwired…To Self-Destruct, Metallica’s tenth studio album, is scheduled to be released on November 18th, and along with the news came the album’s first single “Hardwired,” though after hearing it you may wonder why it wasn’t just called “Hardwired…to Self-Destruct.” While I know there are plenty of fans who are going to shit on this because it’s what Metallica fans seem to do now, I was actually pleasantly surprised after hearing it. It sounds like a mix of Ride the Lightning and Death Magnetic, and while the main riff is a little repetitive, as a whole I can see it being a strong opener for the album. But don’t take my word for it, give it a listen below to decide for yourself.
