Dustin et STranger Things dans l'Upside Down à l'abri des Demobats

The metal band thanks the series and the community in its own way with a video that sends heavy!

The Duffer Brothers series has had its share of epic scenes set to music since the 1980s. Run up that hill by Kate Bush giving life to one of the most iconic moments on television, the second part of Stranger things he left pop to honor good vintage metal. It was on the side of Metallica that the directors went to draw, and the result was masterful. If you haven’t seen the last two episodes of Unknown things 4 : watch out for spoilers!

The integration of the song Puppet Master by Metallica was done to perfection. While Eddie Munson traveled to the Upside Down with the rest of the band, he uses his guitar skills to attract the Demobats who protect Vecna’s mansion. Eddie is the “Game Director” from the part of Dungeons & Dragons of the Hellfire Club, his role as master here takes on a whole new dimension. He finds himself controlling the monsters that become his puppets: the circle is complete.

A collaboration that benefits everyone

Unfortunately, this heroic act will end up costing him his life in a scene that will not fail to tear us from tears. This however makes it a cult scene, so it will be difficult to separate the character from the song for a long time. A few days ago the group thanked the Duffer brothers for including this music in the series, but above all for making it such an important moment.

But to the delight of fans of the series and the group, Metallica didn’t stop at simple thanks. It is on Tiktok that the musicians have lent themselves to the game to interpret their music together with Eddie Munson. We then get an extraordinary duo that makes us shiver.

The Duffer brothers took advantage of this cute gift from the group to showcase Joseph Quinn’s performance practicing guitar playing the cult title. Although the actor didn’t play the snippet heard on the show, he practiced mimicking chords and playing strings. so that the physical performance is faithful to the soundtrack (very rare in movies and series).

The attention to detail for this scene was therefore very special knowing that the sonic performance was provided by Kirk Hammett, the band’s guitarist, as well as Tye Trujillo, the bassist’s son. For the directors the choice of this music was obvious. Like Kate Bush’s song, this title was already included in the pre-production projects and the series team went to great lengths to secure the rights as soon as possible. The efforts will have paid off and this collaboration has been worth it.
