Directed by Jonas Akerlund in Los Angeles, the music video for 'Turn the Page,' Metallica's first single from 'Garage Inc.,' made it's worldwide premiere on Oct. 28, 1998. Prior to filming 'Turn the Page,' Akerlund worked with the likes of Madonna, Paul McCartney and the Rolling Stones, in addition to several other internationally recognized recording artists.
The third single from Metallica's seventh studio album, 'ReLoad,' is also the third music video released from the album. Wayne Isham, the man behind the video for 'Enter Sandman,' again teamed up with the band to direct the video for 'Fuel.' Filmed in Tokyo, Japan, 'Fuel' premiered to fans on May 14, 1998.
More than six years after 'The Unforgiven' was released on Metallica's self-titled 1991 album, the band unleashed the next episode of the song series with 'The Unforgiven II' on 'ReLoad.' To accompany the second single from that album, Metallica partnered back up with Matt Mahurin to direct the music video.
Making its debut on Nov. 4, 1997, the music video for the first single from 1997's 'ReLoad' features Metallica front-and-center in an intensely dreamlike setting. 'The Memory Remains' was directed by Paul Andersen and reportedly cost $400,000 to film.
The fourth single from Metallica's 'Load' brings with it the second music video directed by Matt Mahurin. Filmed toward the end of 1996 in Salt Lake City, Utah, the video for 'King Nothing' made its debut on television sets across the country on January 7, 1997.
Metallica got together with Dutch filmmaker Anton Corbijn to direct the music video for their second single from 1996's 'Load.' 'Hero of the Day' is a fascinating video as it follows a supposed drug-addicted teen for a day. The teen has his television set on all day, and switches between several different programs, all featuring members of Metallica.
