Watch the Making of Metallica's "Moth Into Flame"

Metallica have posted a nine-minute video featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the writing and recording sessions for their latest single, "Moth Into Flame."

The song is the opening track from the band's new album, Hardwired...to Self-Destruct, which is due November 18. It's the band's first studio album in eight years since Death Magnetic in 2008, which is the longest gap between two studio albums for the band.

These days he performs with several New York City-area bands and can often be spotted with one of his many, many, many B-bender-equipped guitars. In past lives he was GW’s managing editor and online managing editor – and he still can’t believe he got to write the liner notes for the latest SRV box set.
