They say that music transcends language, and as the first band to perform on all seven continents, Metallica‘s worldwide success certainly backs that up. Just in case anything is still lost in translation, though, the metal legends are here to help.

Metallica has released several new lyric videos for “Lux Æterna,” the lead single off the band’s upcoming 72 Seasons album, translating the songs in different languages, including Japanese, German, Spanish and Portuguese. A new English lyric video is also out.

You can watch all the multilingual lyric videos streaming now on YouTube.

72 Seasons, the follow-up to 2016’s Hardwired…to Self-Destruct, arrives April 14. Metallica will support the record on a world tour in 2023 and 2024, featuring completely different set lists across multiple shows in each city. Openers include the reformed Pantera, Five Finger Death Punch, Greta Van Fleet, Mammoth WVH, Ice Nine Kills, Volbeat and Architects.
