Metallica Release Animated Lyric Video For ‘Master Of Puppets’

Metallica have released an animated lyric video for “Mater Of Puppets,” the title track of their 1986 album.

The lyric video, created by U.K. design agency ILoveDust, features puppet strings, flying guitars, and more crosses than the average Vatican gift shop.

The song has received the new video following its renewed cultural visibility after it featured in Netflix‘s “Stranger Things Season 4” finale from July 1.

In a scene in the “Stranger Things” Season 4 finale, the metalhead character Eddie Munsun, played by Joseph Quinn, is seen shredding his way through the song “Master Of Puppets” as he looks to defeat a nasty demon named Vecna.

The scene became so popular that even Metallica released a video that showed them playing along with the action.

“The way The Duffer Brothers [the show’s directors] have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been next level, so we were beyond psyched for them to not only include ‘Master Of Puppets’ in the show, but to have such a pivotal scene built around it,” Metallica wrote on Instagram.

“We were all stoked to see the final result and when we did we were totally blown away. it’s so extremely well done, so much so, that some folks were able to guess the song just by seeing a few seconds of Joseph Quinn’s hands in the trailer! How crazy cool is that?” the band added.
