June 5, 2013 marks the 10th anniversary of the release of Metallica's most controversial album, 'St. Anger.' The album is controversial not because of its lyrical content, but because of the direction the band went with it. Ringing snare drums, no guitar solos and filthy dirty guitar riffs all combine to make a 'Tallica album like none other.
In 2003, Metallica released their eighth studio album, a record that will forever carry with it much controversy. Prior to 'St. Anger,' it seemed like everything was headed in the right direction; seven studio albums into their career and Metallica had sold millions upon millions of records, picked up several industry awards and even recorded an epic performance with the San Francisco Symphony...
The final single from 2003's 'St. Anger' is also the namesake of the 2004 Metallica tell-all documentary, 'Some Kind of Monster.' The music video for 'Some Kind of Monster' takes footage from the film as well as older concert material and sets it to the tune of the song.
'The Unnamed Feeling' is the third single released from 2003's 'St. Anger' and the second Metallica music video directed by The Malloys, the team of brothers Emmett and Brendan. The video was filmed in Los Angeles and made its debut on Dec. 3, 2003.
Once again teaming up with director Wayne Isham, Metallica premiered the music video for 'St. Anger's' second single, 'Frantic,' on Aug. 15, 2003. Like the song, the video moves fast and definitely conveys a sense of franticness.
The music video for 'St. Anger,' the lead single from the album of the same name, found Metallica stepping out of their comfort zones. Teaming up with directors Emmett and Brendan Malloy, the band decided to film their performance of the crushing song at San Quentin State Prison in California.
