Metallica Runs Through The Entire “Black Album” In Prague
For the first time ever, one of the most influential bands in music history performed the entire "Black Album" for a lucky Czech Republic audience.Before the band ripped through all twelve jaw-dropping tracks of the 1991 release, they played some older tunes and took rockers back to the early and middle 80's.
Interestingly enough, Metallica played the entire album backwards, starting with the twelfth track, "The Struggle Within" all the way up to the smash hit "Enter Sandman", before coming out and performing a three song encore consisting of "Fuel", "One", and the classic "Seek and Destroy".
In 2009, the "Black Album" became the best selling album of the "SoundScan" era, selling 15,772,000 copies in the United States alone.
Congrats to Metallica, it's good to see the guys bring some more unique material to the already astounding shows that the guys put on.
