Watch Metallica's New Music Video

William Goodman

Death and destruction are often centerpieces of hard rock music. And for Metallica's just-released video for "All Nightmare Long," a nine-minute epic off Death Magnetic, the band fittingly tell the story of an alien spore that falls to earth aboard a meteorite, is discovered to revive dead humans and animals, and is then used by the Russians to produce an army of zombies to feed on living U.S. citizens. Yikes!

Below, watch Metallica's horror story -- which doesn't feature an appearance from the band -- unfold in a treatment that mixes vintage health videos with comic book animation. Then leave your thoughts in the comment section.
