Metallica: Cyanide (song 18)

The new album, "Death Magnetic", after 25+ years as a band, could have been perfunctory or just an excuse to tour for the next 2 years playing all their greatest hits.

Instead, they brought on producer Rick Rubin who did just what he has done for Linkin Park, the Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers -- gave them permission to be who they are.  In the process, they made an amazing metal record that nearly erases the last 17 years of experimenting and going through all kinds of sturm und drang.

This song, "Cyanide" is now being played heavily (at least on Sirius/XM), so I'll presume other fans are loving the song and is perhaps winning over a few new fans.  My favorite parts of the song are the parts where only the bass and drums are playing.  It's a sound fans likely won't remember hearing since ". . .And Justice For All".

Enjoy this video with a nifty lighting theme in honor of St. Patrick's day:
