 Metallica‘s new album “Hardwired… To Self Destruct” is almost here! They’ve released another new song from it: “Atlas, Rise!”

GRD debuted it wanting to know what GRD listeners think. Check out their reactions, then listen to “Atlas, Rise!” and let us know your thoughts!

“Atlas, Rise!” is the third single from Metallica’s upcoming album “Hardwired… To Self Destruct”, out November 18. It’s the follow-up to 2008’s “Death Magnetic”.

You can pre-order the new album here.

In comparing the new album to previous albums, Metallica’s Lars Ulrich said in an interview with Rolling Stone,

Most of the songs are simpler [than those on Death Magnetic]. We introduce a mood and we stick to it, rather than songs we’ve done where one riff happens and we go over here and then over there and becomes a journey through all these different soundscapes. The songs are more linear…


I’d say there’s a trace of residue from rediscovering Kill ‘Em All that crept into the songwriting.”

Here’s what some GRD listeners think of the new song. What’s your opinion of “Atlas, Rise!”? Check it out above then take the poll and let us know!
