This Metallica video frightens me!

I came across  Metallica’s new video “All Nightmare Long” off their album Death Magnetic on YouTube tonight and had to do a double take. I was expecting to see something heavy with a powerful storyline and visual images…something along the lines of “One.”

But what they did instead was something like I’ve never seen from them before. Something that left me scratching my head as I watched it. No sight of any band members and some of the most intriguingly weird footage I’ve ever seen. What in the heck is this “dust spore” called Cnopbl? Is this real? Is this make believe? What the hell is it period? All I know is that it’s pretty freaky and I hope it’s not true. Check out the video below and you’ll see what I’m talking about. Metallica fan or not it’s worth watching.

After watching the video, I did a little more investigating online and came across this vlog by Metallica’s lead guitarist Kirk Hammett. Turns out, he bought this footage off a guy in Russia a while ago while the band was on tour. As you can see from his reaction, even he doesn’t know what it all means. Propoganda? Some kind of intelligence from a laboratory? Something to worry about in the future? He basically leaves it up to us to decide.

So what do you think this is all about? I’m still trying to figure it out myself. Please leave a comment if you have any thoughts.

    I think its just about a story and what the creator of the original footage what would happen in the future but just wouldn’t happen because not any kind if dirt or dust can revive anyone. or anything. If that were true. The World would be in Chaos Right Now.

    Rik…that was some bizarre footage Kirk found, but it’s to be expected…definitely interesting.

    I actually found this when i googled cnopbl and i have to say like yourself i was amazingly suprised.
    Not dissapointed as such i was just expecting something along the lines of what you were it would have been interesting to see what they would have came up with.
    There was great potential for something with a storyline however with other songs like Cyanide.
    Still greatly looking forward to an Unforgiven III music video too.
