Video info

Band Metallica
Date 23/11/1984
Album Ride the Lightning
Description Metallica was inspired for the song by the second half of the film “The Ten Commandments”, which is based on the Bible tale of the Plagues of Egypt. While watching the scene of the final plague killing every Egyptian first-born child, Cliff Burton remarked “Whoa – it’s like creeping death”, as the plague was represented by a fog rolling into the Pharaoh’s palace. The band liked the sound of “creeping death” and decided to write a song about the plagues, with the phrase as its title.
