Metallica respect to Ennio Morricone: “Your career was legendary, your compositions were timeless”

Metallica respect tribute to Ennio Morricone after the legendary Italian composer died earlier this week. Morricone, the legendary film composer whose death at the age of 91.

He is one of the most-known and of course the best composer who scored over 500 films and more. He just can’t inspire cinephiles like Quentin Tarantino but bands as varied musicians as Muse, Scott Walker, Radiohead, Dire Straits, Orbital, Portishead, Nick Cave, The Last Shadow Puppets. We know Ennio Morricone amazing works like ‘The Ecstasy Of Gold’ from the soundtrack to “The Good The Bad And The Ugly” film. However, Metallica used this soundtrack as the band intro music since 1983.

Metallica shows their respect to Ennio Morricone on their social media accounts:

First, the whole band wrote this:

The band posted on Twitter: “RIP Ennio Morricone. Your career was legendary, your compositions were timeless. Thank you for setting the mood for so many of our shows since 1983.”

Then James Hetfield added:

“The day we first played The Ecstasy Of Gold as our new intro in 1983 it was magic! It has become apart of our blood flow, deep breathing, fist-bumping, prayers, and band huddle pre-show ritual ever since. I have sung that melody thousands of times to warm up my throat before hitting the stage. Thank you, Ennio for pumping us up, being a big part of our inspiration, and bonding between band, crew, and fan.

I will forever think of you as part of the Metallica family.”
