METALLICA MADE A LIVE VIDEO. BIG MISTAKE.
Usually when you see a video with performance footage, the original studio recording of the song is still layed over the imagery. But the new Metallica video, for “Broken, Beaten and Scarred,” actually uses audio of the band playing the song live.
It’s actually kind of a gutsy move, and I sincerely appreciate what ‘Tallica was trying to accomplish. But Hetfield’s voice doesn’t sound all that great to me (no shock there), and the song itself only sounds kinda sorta okay.
