Metallica Copied Black Metal Band's Music Video?


(Classic Rock) Mayhem guitarist Morten Bergeton Iversen says his life "got weird" last week when he saw the video for Metallica track ManUNkind. The Jonas Akerlund-directed promo features a black metal band onstage who bear an uncanny resemblance to Mayhem, complete with similar stage make-up, pigs' heads on spikes and the lead singer cutting himself with a hunting knife.

And after seeing the video, Iversen, aka Teloch, posted a message on Facebook to voice his surprise. He says: "My life just got weird, Metallica copying, not only the Mayhem logo and the old Mayhem characters in their latest video, but they copied an old gig as well."

Akerlund, who was a member of Swedish black metal pioneers Bathory in the early 80s, is known for directing videos which often mock movie trailer and films. here.
