Metallica: Atlas Rise (2016) – Music Video

A great song!

Ok, so if you are a fan of Metallica like I have been since forever, then you are almost constantly waiting for the next concert, the new album… Whatever is coming up… I mean some how this band always manages to keep audiences motivated to need the next album!

And you know what? Even though this band is heading in to their twilight, they still freaking rock now as much as they did whenb they released, ‘St. Anger’, ‘Reload’, ‘Ride The Lightening’ or even, ‘Kill ‘Em All’! They just have managed to do a great job keeping the lyrics both exciting, and edge of your seat fun!

Metallica back in the day!

And so with this recent album I have been called, ‘Hardwired… To Self Destruct’ I have been diving in to it on Spotify, and I have to say that I am insanely impressed with it! It comes back to their true to form style that I felt was lacking in their most recently previous two albums, ‘Death Magnetic’ and, ‘St. Anger’…  Both great albums, but I felt like with the departure of Jason Newsted they had to try and find their voice again…

They did that with Hardwired… To Self Destruct for sure… And so far I have to say that their song, ‘Atlas Rise’ is one of is definitely one of their better songs… But why tell you when i can shows you?

And if you like that, then please enjoy these lyrics for Metallica’s awesome new song, ‘Atlas Rise’ for their hit album, Hardwired… To Self Destruct!

Bitterness and burden
Curses rest on thee
Solitaire and sorrow
All Eternity

Save the Earth and claim perfection
Deem the mass and blame rejection
Hold the pose, reign perception
Grudges break your back

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on, right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, Rise!

How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, Rise!

Crucify and witness
Circling the sun
Bastardize and ruin
What have you become?

Blame the world, and blame your maker
Wish ‘em to the undertaker
Crown yourself the other savior
So you carry on

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on, right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, Rise!

How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, Rise!

Masquerade as maker
Heavy is the crown
Beaten down and broken
Drama wears you down

Overload, the martyr stumbles
Hit the ground and heaven crumbles
All alone, the fear shall humble
Swallow all your pride

All you bear
All you carry
All you bear
Place it right on, right on me

Die as you suffer in vain
Own all the grief and the pain
Die as you hold up the skies
Atlas, Rise!

How does it feel on your own?
Bound by the world all alone
Crushed under heavy skies
Crushed under heavy skies
Atlas, Rise!
