James Hetfield comforts fans in dark places on the new Metallica track, “You are not alone.”
Here’s what Papa Het has to say about the track:
“’Screaming Suicide’ addresses the taboo word of suicide…The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It’s ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it’s a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.”
Despite the heavy mental health subject matter, “Screaming Suicide” is a bright, break-neck banger. More spacious and less thrashy than “Lux Aeterna”. Check it out below.
With almost three months to go til 72 Seasons, hopefully we still get some more preview tracks before the April 14 release.
Don’t forget that single day tickets for the M72 Tour are on sale now.
