watch Metallica perform a new version of “Blackened,” quarantine style
Metallica have been posting a live concert video from their archives every Monday, and they're airing a concert recording a day on SiriusXM for all of May, but they haven't actually performed anything new during quarantine... until now.
James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett, and Rob Trujillo got "together" from their own homes and did a rustic new version of the classic ...And Justice For All opener "Blackened." It's a pretty cool rendition, and it's also cool to see Metallica getting in on the whole quarantine performance thing. Watch below.
Lars also recently said that the four of them have a Zoom chat once a week and that they're tossing around the idea of beginning to work on a new album in quarantine.
