METALLICA's Live Video For "Moth Into Flame" Was Filmed With Drones
Metallica has had set designer and show director Dan Braun on board since 1994, and who has recently incorporated the increasingly-popular drone vehicle into the band's live performance. Braun recently sat down with OnMilwaukee to discuss the drones, which he says James Hetfield has been wanting to put into the show for several years. Braun says he didn't want to for a while due to safety concerns.
“I used to say they weren’t safe, so we sort of got away from the idea, but kept it on the back burner. Then I spoke with Adam Davis at TAIT, and he told us about their relationship with Verity and about the potential possibilities, and that’s how we got into using drones on this tour. As the show’s designer and director, I thought we should put them in ‘Moth Into Flame’, as it’s been a very successful song for the band for a long time. And after the first night of the tour in Copenhagen, James said the drones were great, so we were happy, and we always want to keep the band happy.”
