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.

After finding this Metallica video on YouTube of the guys rocking a venue in the UK and playing “The Day That Never Comes” off their upcoming album, I really hope they will consider adding Hawaii to their Death Magnetic concert tour. Afterall, Kirk Hammett’s wife is from Waimanalo so there’s already a reason to come here. Okay, maybe I’m reaching.

But seriously, c’mon Kirk, James, Lars, and Robert…show Hawaii what you’ve got! When the mainland starts to get too cold, just remember it will be 80 degrees here in the Islands. Yes, even during the winter. Aloha Stadium has your name on it.
