Check Out Metallica's Lyrics for 'Lux Æterna'

Happy Metallica day! The band surprised fans Monday (Nov. 28) with the announcement of a new album, 72 Seasons, out in April, as well as the release of the album’s first single, “Lux Æterna.”

So, what the heck is James Hetfield singing in those lyrics? Find the full lyrics below.

“Is there a special meaning to the [album] title?” Metallica frontman James Hetfield said in a statement. “72 seasons. The first 18 years of our lives that form our true or false selves. The concept that we were told ‘who we are’ by our parents. A possible pigeonholing around what kind of personality we are.”

He added, “I think the most interesting part of this is the continued study of those core beliefs and how it affects our perception of the world today. Much of our adult experience is reenactment or reaction to these childhood experiences. Prisoners of childhood or breaking free of those bondages we carry.”

  • Metallica's Lux Æterna lyrics

    Anticipation
    In domination
    A sea of hearts beat as one, unified
    Magnification
    All generations
    Approaching thunder awaiting the light
    Full speed or nothing
    Full speed or nothing

    Lux Æterna
    Lux Æterna

    Exhilaration
    Frenzied sensation
    Kindred alliance connected inside
    Commiseration
    Sonic salvation
    Cast out the demons that strangle your life

    Full speed or nothing
    Full speed or nothing

    Lux Æterna
    Lux Æterna

    Lux Æterna

    Emancipation
    Kill isolation
    Never alone for the feelings alike
    Amplification
    Lightning the nation
    Never alive more
    Than right here tonight

    Full speed or nothing
    Full speed or nothing

    Lux Æterna
    Lux Æterna

    Light it
