Metallica Perform New Version Of ‘Blackened’ From Quarantine

Metallica recently performed a stripped down version of their 1988 hit “Blackened” and shared it on YouTube.

The rock band members, James Hetfield, Lars Ulrich, Kirk Hammett and Robert Trujillo, performed the track off their …And Justice for All album from their respective homes.

“Here’s a little something we cooked up over the last few days. Hope you’re all safe & sound. Have a great weekend,” Metallica captioned the split-screen video.

During a Twitter chat earlier last week with Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, Ulrich spoke about the possibility of a new album from the band while in quarantine.

“The guys in Metallica… we sit here and go, well, maybe in a month or two from now, is there a chance that the four of us can be together maybe at our studio here in Northern California, if the quarantine and stay-at-home orders subside — so on and so forth,” Ulrich said.

“Will there be a Metallica quarantine record? I can’t tell you, because, again, I don’t know how long the quarantine will last. But if you and I and the rest of the world are sitting here six months from now or a year from now, I’d say there’s a very good chance,” he added.

The band’s previous album was Hardwired…To Self-Destruct in 2016.

Metallica announced at the end of March that they would be rescheduling upcoming tour dates and festival appearances due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The band recently launched a weekly online concert series, called “Metallica Mondays,” promising to post a new live performance every Monday.
