NME: Metallica perform ‘The Black Album’ in full at Louder Than Life festival
Metallica played ‘The Black Album’ in its entirety during their headline set at Louder Than Life festival last night (September 26) – see footage below. ‘The Black Album’ was reissued this month to celebrate its 20th anniversary, while alongside the record’s reissue came ‘The Metallica Blacklist’, a mammoth covers album. To continue the celebrations, Metallica played their second headline set of the weekend at Louder Than Life in Louisville, Kentucky, playing the album in reverse order. The set began with three non-‘Black Album’ tracks – ‘Hardwired’, ‘The Four Horsemen’ and ‘Welcome Home (Sanitarium)’ – before the band launched in to its closing track, ‘The Struggle Within’.
