Metallica‘s 72 Seasons video saga has come to an end.

Since dropping their much-anticipated new album Friday, April 14, the metal legends have premiered a new visual every day to accompany a different song off the record. The four prerelease tracks — lead single “Lux Æterna,” “Screaming Suicide,” “If Darkness Had a Son” and the title track — also got videos.

Now, Metallica’s premiered the video for the final 72 Seasons song, album closer “Inamorata.” You can argue whether they saved the best for last, but they certainly saved the longest — the epic “Inamorata” lasts 11 minutes and 10 seconds, a personal record for Metallica.

You can watch the “Inamorata” video, an animated, hallucinatory journey through a desert, streaming now on YouTube.

While every 72 Seasons song now has its own video, Metallica is not quite done with the album’s visual side. Each 72 Seasons video is also being released in American Sign Language, or ASL. The ASL edition of the title track is out now, and the remaining 11 videos will premiere April 25.
