This October: Photography Duo Herring & Herring Talk w Metallica’s Lars Ulrich

Here’s an interesting thing to do for fans of Metallica and photography. Check it out.

The Description:
Photography duo HERRING & HERRING, a.k.a Dimitri Scheblanov, a 2005 graduate of The Cooper Union’s School of Art, and Jesper Carlsen, will be in conversation with Metallica’s Lars Ulrich to discuss their collaborative work together, the process of creating art, and more. Since their first shoot with Lars in 2014, HERRING & HERRING have photographed Metallica on multiple occasions, most notably for their 2016 platinum selling album Hardwired… To Self Destruct, providing photography and creative direction for the album cover art, as well as directing music videos, shooting band portraits and capturing their live shows.

The event is free and open to the public. General public should reserve a space here. Please note seating is on a first come basis; an RSVP does not guarantee admission as we generally overbook to ensure a full house.

Metallica TV Presents: “Halo On Fire” (Official Video)

Hey there and we are back to the remaining videos from Metallica from their now hours away from arriving “Hardwired…To Self-Destruct” album. This is the 10th overall video clip done for the new release and the 7th that was unveiled over these last two days. It comes care of the creative minds of Herring and Herring. Take a look.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: The visual narrative of this one is pretty cool and the song a slow and VERY long one that clocks in past the eight-minute mark. The band setting is a big open space loaded with people who encircle them and it at first reminded me of the Nirvana video “Smells Like Teen Spirit” only without the various costumes and characters. Here we just have an ample crowd and Metallica who are all smiles during the tune as they are clearly having a lot of fun. The story inside the clip follows a young woman getting ready for her day which seems to end in a sort of Fight Club. So we get lots of fighting action while the crowd goes crazy. It ends as it begins which I am feeling amounts to her living this type of life as a routine day in and day out. Interesting stuff. Let me know what you thought of this one and I will see you with another clip ASAP.
