Metallica: Orion Meaning
anonymous Sep 21st, 9:00pm report
For some reason, my husband chose this particular piece of music for his funeral in a last text to his cousin, before he committed suicide by hanging himself in his girlfriends garage. To me the song represents a man lost with no words left to say.

to me, a song that symbolizes in music the infinite nature of the universe, which was created by an Almighty, eternal and omnicient God. Kevin Ryan, Mobile Alabama 2017

This song is about space travel.The slow section where you hear Cliff's bass shows the loneliness of our space travelers as they are light years away from Earth.Love the sci Fi guitar tones and riffs.

It's one of many masterpieces Cliff left for us. It means Metallica is the best band ever!

This is not an interpretation, but a response to one. This song is NOT a tribute to Cliff Burton. He was alive and well when this song was written and recorded. It was played at his funeral, yes, but it's not a tribute. He's got bass solos in it for cryin' out loud. lol

Cliff was alive in this album.... This song is just a piece of art!
