On November 10, 2017, Metallica will release a remastered box set of their 1986 album Master Of Puppets. To give fans a taste of what to expect, the band has shared a live version of their song "For Whom the Bell Tolls," which was performed in Hampton, Virginia on August 3, 1986. Listen to it above, courtesy of the band's YouTube channel.
The recording is a very interesting look back in time to the band's earlier years. The late Cliff Burton is featured on bass, and John "Stack" Marshall, the band's guitar roadie, is on rhythm guitar. After some commentary from frontman James Hetfield, the group dives into the song with breakneck guitar riffs and Hetfield's screaming vocals.
Pick up the box set on Amazon.
The band will resume their tour on February 1, 2018 in Portugal. For concert tickets and more, check out Metallica's Zumic artist page.
