Happy Halloween and happy “Atlas, Rise!” day! Metallica made good on their promise to release a new song on Halloween, with “Atlas, Rise!” being the third new song to come from their Hardwired … to Self Destruct album. You can hear it in the player above.
As you can hear, it’s another epic track from the mighty Metallica, giving a solid, driving and lengthy instrumental introduction before James Hetfield’s vocals kick in. The track itself is full of driving guitar, Hetfield’s powerful vocals and Lars Ulrich keeping a high energy beat. Overall, it sounds like a perfect fit for Metallica’s stage show.
“Atlas, Rise!” follows in the footsteps of the high energy rocker “Hardwired” and the equally impressive follow-up single “Moth Into Flame,” with both tracks already hitting the Top 10 at radio. The Hardwired … to Self Destruct album is due Nov. 18 via the band’s own Blackened Recordings label and it’s currently available to pre-order in a variety of bundle options at this location.
