Metallica have released a video of their performance of classic track For Whom The Bell Tolls.

It was filmed at New York’s Webster Hall on September 27th – a show that was exclusively set up for the band’s Fifth Members fan club. It also took place on the 30th anniversary of bassist Cliff Burton’s death. Watch it below.

Metallica are gearing up for the launch of their highly anticipated 10th album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, which will be released on November 18th on their own Blackened Recordings label.

  1. I don’t know…Metallica has been so polarizing for a lot of people, me included. I absolutely love their first albums through Justice, and continue to listen to them regularly. I just can’t get into their “newer” music after the Justice album. I miss the distorted sonics of the guitars, James’ angry voice, the “street” vibe of the band, etc…While I have been pleasantly surprised by the couple of tunes released off the forthcoming Hardwired album, I have felt betrayed, musically, after Justice. Yet, other bands from the 80’s era, like Death Angel and Testament, can release new albums that are complete thrash monsters.

    And I wish James would stop trying to “sing” these old school songs.

  2. In my opinion, there is a magic on the first 3 albums that I don’t think can ever be reproduced because they’re not that young, hungry band full of fire that they were. I think Justice is great, but for me it was the first album where they did not show major artistic growth from the previous album.

    It’s hard to criticize the Black Album when it sold Diamond and apparently continues to sell well a quarter-century later. The only albums that I don’t think are anything special are Load and Reload. I liked the first half of St. Anger a lot. I don’t know why people apparently didn’t like it. Maybe the movie put people off.

    Looking forward to hearing the new one after an 8-year album break.
