All Nightmare Long is a nine-minute-long alternative-history science fiction/horror fake documentary with stop motion animation, rotoscoping and Soviet propaganda thrown in. There's also a Metallica song attached to it, but you might not even notice it's a music video. (Or watch it on Youtube)

I know we've done a Metallica video recently, but seriously ... it's frickin' sweet.

That was so much more awesome than Metallica really deserves.

Metallica,

You have done a lot of ill as of late, and I still haven't forgiven you. But this is a step in the right direction.

P.S. S & M rocked.

This is a video game I want to play.

OK, so I just watched Shaun Of The Dead last night, but I have a hard time taking these communist zombies very seriously. If they'd been Nazi zombies, now that would have been something else altogether.

Did someone say Nazi zombies?

Oh yeah. See, that has the element of realism so I can take it seriously.

An alternative history with alien bugs and the Tunguska event. Clearly Metallica have been playing a lot of Resistance and Resistance 2 on the PS3.

And why not? They're awesome. Just like this music video. Makes up for the travesty that was the Day That Never Comes music video.

The irony though is that All Nightmare Long (the song) is what I consider one of the least interesting songs on Death Magnetic, whereas Day That Never Comes (the song) was one of the better ones. So they've given the good song the crap video and the bad song the good video. Which is a shame.

I'm afraid I'm going to dream about kittens tonight....

A fruit is your friend!

No no no no. It's an alternate soviet history with alien bugs, the Tunguska event, zombies, and chemtrails.

It's like my alpha-dream state made a movie!

That's incredibly awesome, regardless of what one may or may not think of the music. This is the direction in which music videos as a whole need to be headed...

The chemtrails thing was kind of... useless, and makes it seem like they're either conspiracy nuts, or just trying to pick up something cool from a subculture without understanding it or how dumb it is.

But the rest of the video was great. The song, not so much.

I disagree, chemtrails are the perfect end, an insane internet theory now given a real history and backstory and it's kind of a brillliant re-working of narrative threads inot a whole. I really really really like this.

Youtube says: "This video is not available in your country."
