Metallica dropped a brand new song last night.
Without any advance notice, the band shared “Screaming Suicide”, the second single from their upcoming album 72 Seasons.
James Hetfield hopes the song can help break the ‘taboo’ of talking about suicide:
“Screaming Suicide” addresses the taboo word of suicide. The intention is to communicate about the darkness we feel inside. It’s ridiculous to think we should deny that we have these thoughts. At one point or another I believe most people have thought about it. To face it is to speak the unspoken. If it’s a human experience, we should be able to talk about it. You are not alone.
