Metallica’s new album “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct” will be on the music markets tomorrow. Maybe the most curious song of the album, “Murder One” was shared.
The song was written in honor of Motörhead vocalist Lemmy Kilmister, who passed away last year.
The song was written by vocalist James Hetfield. he stated about the track:
“‘Murder One’ was the name of [Lemmy‘s] amplifier, his favorite amp on stage. And I loved being murdered every night by that thing, man. He was just such an icon, such an inspiration to us as a band. There’s certainly no way we’d be around if there was no MOTÖRHEAD. And, you know, to see your idol, your immortal one, actually be mortal, it hit us pretty hard. So I felt, lyrically, it makes sense to acknowledge him and how much he’s meant in our lives.”
