Pro skaters Felipe Nunes and Tony Hawk both star in the video for Metallica‘s new single Too Far Gone.

The band have also released a live version of the track as a digital single, recorded at their MetLife Stadium gig on August 6th this year.

The track is taken from the band’s recent 72 Seasons album – ‘a noisy, rowdy howl’ according to Live4ever’s review:

“From its very first moments there is absolutely no doubting as a listener exactly where you are as Hetfield’s gravel-filled bark and the blasted, side-questing riffs locate them at the centre of a familiar hurricane.”

This is pretty much the recipe throughout, with minimal time or energy wasted on new excursions into previously tried stylistic dead ends. On this solid ground Shadows Follow, Crown Of Barbed Wire and If Darkness Had A Son are regulation workouts that could’ve been cropped from a number of their albums old or new, such is the drawback of entering a career’s fifth decade.
