Metallica is speaking out about one very pivotal Stranger Things moment.
The band is giving the Netflix show their seal of approval over how their iconic 1986 song, Master Of Puppets, was used in a powerful way on the hit series’ season 4 finale.
Bandmembers James Heftield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Robert Trujillo took to the official Instagram page to express their admiration for the Duffer Brothers:
“The way The Duffer Brothers have incorporated music into Stranger Things has always been next level, so we were beyond psyched for them to not only include ‘Master Of Puppets’ in the show, but to have such a pivotal scene built around it. We were all stoked to see the final result and when we did we were totally blown away…”
They went on to praise how well done the entire segment was crafted:
“It’s so extremely well done, so much so, that some folks were able to guess the song just by seeing a few seconds of Joseph Quinn’s hands in the trailer!! How crazy cool is that?
It’s an incredible honor to be such a big part of Eddie’s journey and to once again be keeping company with all of the other amazing artists featured in the show.”
On Sunday (July 3), Metallica’s bassist Robert Trujillo shared on Instagram that his 17-year-old son Tye helped to provide additional guitar tracks for the episode:
“That’s my boy! Proud of ya Tye! Stranger Things finale shredding it on ‘Master of Puppets’”
