Are you suffering from anxiety?
Don’t worry, James Hetfield has got your back. In fact, he wrote an entire song about the moments right before someone starts to panic. The song calls it The Unnamed Feeling and this is probably the rare Metallica song to which everyone can relate. St. Anger will probably always be a controversial album but I think it’s aging well. Hetfield was obviously dealing with some serious things during the recording, You don’t need to watch Some Kind of Monster to know that. You just have to listen to the songs. Personally, I like knowing that even a pioneer of thrash metal can sometimes get nervous. That means there’s hope for the rest of us.
The video features the band playing in a room in which the walls are slowly closing in. In between scenes of the band, we watch people dealing with that unnamed feeling. Keep an eye out for Edward Furlong, who previously lived on the edge for Aerosmith.
