Metallica shares new animated lyric video for “Master of Puppets”


Metallica’s 1986 thrash anthem “Master of Puppets” now has an official animated lyric video, which the legendary Bay Area metal band released this week.

The clip adds to the classic Puppeteer the renewed cultural visibility of tune after its outbreak in Netflix stranger things Season 4 finale starting July 1.

Metallica’s lyric video was animated by ILOVEDUST, a UK-based design company. The company also carried out work to next Ozzy Osbourne album.

In stranger things 4The finale, metalhead character Eddie Munson performs “Master of Puppets” in a pivotal scene. Tye Trujillo, the 17-year-old son of Metallica’s Robert Trujillo, contributed the guitar solo used on the show’s recording. The song is also part of stranger things 4 soundtrack, plus others by KISS, Journey and more.

Munson, played by Joseph Quinn, waves the heavy metal flag throughout stranger things 4, originally launched on Netflix in May. He rocks a Dio back patch in addition to swinging on the guitar. Quinn even listened to metal to prepare for the role.

stranger things The creators of the Duffer Brothers wrote the scene with the Metallica song in mind. After the episode aired, Metallica dueted the track on TikTok with the Stranger Things character. He pushed the melody of vintage metal on the Billboard Hot 100. (At least 10 other Metallica cuts that made the Hot 100 over time.)

Metallica, together for more than 40 years, has three US shows left on its 2022 tour; see them below. Last year, Metallica drummer Lars Ulrich said it was “far too early” to talk about a new Metallica album, although the band had apparently been working on one.
