4PM means that we have yet another Metallica video to sink our fangs into in preparation for their much anticipated, November 18th release of Hardwired…To Self Destruct. This one was directed by Jonas Åkerlund and kills, like only Metallica can do! So far, the response from fans has been overwhelmingly positive as the video representations of this release unfolds before our eyes and ears. Being a fan for over thirty years, I could not be more thrilled with everything put forward so far. Stay tuned! There is much more to come as we are given the rare opportunity to hear the new album, in its entirety, before it is released! Loving this marketing strategy! Freakin’ genius!
