Metallica Deny Making Political Statement in New Video

August 05, 2008 03:20:40 GMT


Rock band Metallica deny that their soon-to-be-released video for single "The Day That Never Comes" from upcoming album "Death Magnetic" is attempting to convey political statement about American's ongoing war with Iraq or Afghanistan. Drummer Lars Ulrich said that what they are trying to do is bringing back the common thread of resentment between politics and religion that have separated people from each other. He said, "It's a story about human beings who don't know each other, in a particularly tense situation. It could be a contemporary war setting, but it's really about forgiveness and redemption and understanding what goes on in people's minds. We really feel that this was such a beautiful and epic way to treat the song in something that was really radically different than the specificity of the lyrics."

People have come up with such rumor following the video preview displaying a U.S. army across dusty dessert with a huge blast which wounds one of the soldiers. Another soldier rushes to help the wounded with a medical equipment in his hand. Minutes later, a helicopter approaches and the bloody soldier is flown into the capable hands of a military medical team.
