Classic music videos for “Nothing Else Matters,” “Enter Sandman,” “The Unforgiven” and “One” account for close to 2 billion views between them. And while they haven’t released an official “music video” in the traditional sense for a few years, their channel is regularly refreshed with content. In just the last four weeks they’ve posted fifteen different professional quality videos from 2019’s world tour, accounting for another 2 million views. Among them: “The Memory Remains” (shot in Wichita, Kansas), “Ride the Lightning” (Cincinnati, Ohio) and “Blackened” (Nashville, Tennessee).
