Watch Metallica ManUnkind Jonas Akerlund VideoT oday Jonas Akerlund's music video for Metallica's ManUNkind single made it's debut. It is the seventh music video from Metallica's upcoming double disc album Hardwired … To Self Destruct to be released this week.

     Hardwired is Metallica's 10th studio album, their most recent solo album since 2008's Death Magnetic, not including Lulu their collaboration with Lou Reed.

     Akerlund's video features the first look at the fictional MAYHEM band (featuring Rory Culkin, Jack Kilmer, and Sky Ferreira) from Jonas Åkerlund’s upcoming true-crime film Lords of Chaos.

     It would appear that the sound of Hardwired … To Self Destruct seems to hark back to St. Anger but with a darker more Black Metal edge. Which ties right in to the subject matter of      Akerlund's Lords of Chaos

A teenager's quest to launch Norwegian Black Metal in Oslo in the 1980s results in a very violent outcome.

“ManUNkind” and Lords of Chaos are both directed by Jonas Åkerlund, and stars Rory Culkin, Jack Kilmer, and Sky Ferreira

Today, in a series of music videos released to accompany their forthcoming highly anticipated album “Hardwired … To Self Destruct”, METALLICA has premiered “ManUNkind” directed by Jonas Åkerlund and starring Rory Culkin, Jack Kilmer, and Sky Ferreira from the upcoming feature film Lords of Chaos.

“ManUNkind” is the exclusive first-look at the characters of Lords of Chaos, which is currently in production.

Åkerlund’s Lords of Chaos is the story of MAYHEM, a young Norwegian band that popularized a form of heavy metal music known as “True Norwegian Black Metal” with a flair for publicity, church-burning, and even murder. The film stars Rory Culkin as ‘Euronymous,’ Emory Cohen as ‘Varg,’ Jack Kilmer as ‘Dead,’ Valter Skarsgård as ‘Faust,’ and Sky Ferreira as ‘Ann-Marit.’

Metallica will continue rolling out a total of ten music videos today ahead of the release of “Hardwired … To Self Destruct”.
