After emotional induction speeches, five-piece band delivers ‘Master of Puppets,’ ‘Enter Sandman.’
Embraced by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for more than 25 years of brutally melodic, cathartic hard rock, Metallica stayed true to their pledge and made their induction Saturday night a generous family affair, and a throat-punching throwdown.
Ex-bassist Jason Newsted — who was ousted from the group eight years ago — guitarist/singer James Hetfield, drummer Lars Ulrich, guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo, along with the father of late bassist Cliff Burton, paid homage to the brotherhood that lifted a scrappy band of speed-demon metalists to the pinnacles of rock-and-roll success. Then they capped the night by showing the room full of their musical heroes the lessons they’ve learned along the way in a no-holds-barred set that included “Master of Puppets” and “Enter Sandman.” (more…)

To celebrate the release of their new album Â“Death MagneticÂ” in September (actual date still tbc) the band thought it would be cool to hang with a few of their closest friends in some of their favourite cities.
On September 12th in Berlin, Germany and on September 15th in London, England they will be hosting a little bash to celebrate the blessed event of the upcoming addition to the Metallica family/catalogue.

The band headline the Leeds (August 22nd) and Reading (August 24th) festivals.
