I would be a vampire, because they’re stealth, lurk in the shadows, and appear and disappear. There’s also a goth element to vampires that I really like, which doesn’t exist in werewolves, the Frankenstein monster or the mummy. James [Hetfield] would probably enjoy being a Frankenstein monster…but then again maybe not! Rob [Trujillo] would definitely be a werewolf, because he’s already halfway there in appearance.
Metallica closed out the second night of their Orion Music + More festival with a performance of their self-titled 1991 album, better known to most as the "Black Album." You can now watch footage of the band performing "My Friend of Misery" from the festival below.
When the book is closed on Metallica and the final history written, you won't find the word "unambitious" anywhere. In fact, with a busy European festival season nearly behind them, their own Orion Music festival looming, a 3D movie in the works and a new album on the horizon, Metallica are looking to accomplish more this summer than most bands do in a career.
Yesterday, Metallica kicked off their summer European tour at Synot Tip Arena in Prague, Czech Republic, a tour which will see them play their self-titled 1991 album — best known as The Black Album — in its entirety.
Metallica have posted yet another video feature from their DVD Orgullo, Pasión, y Gloria: Tres Noches en la Ciudad de México. You can check out footage of the band performing "Fight Fire With Fire" in front of 150,000 die-hard Metallica fans in Mexico City below.
