“I don’t know if Metallica knew this, but Battery has such cool Baroque-isms and traditional harmony. I’m completely drawn to metal that uses classical moments. There’s I-V-I all over it.
“The song is about metal itself. Battery is a street intersection, and on one of the streets was this club. They’re talking about that, but they’re also talking about destruction. James Hetfield chose such great words to describe what metal is. It’s a perfect, self-contained song.
“Musically, it’s Metallica at their heaviest, fastest and most melodic. Unbelievable stuff."
