Metallica performed their 1986 thrash metal classic, “Battery”, during the first of two nights at the Unipol Arena in Bologna, Italy on February 12, and the band are streaming professional footage from the show.
The song was the opening track from the group’s third record, “Master Of Puppets.” Metallica’s major label debut became thrash metal’s first platinum album while expanding and solidifying the band’s sonic palette. The project has now sold more than 6 million copies in the US alone.
As part of their ongoing reissues series, Metallica released a series of remastered 30th anniversary editions of the project last fall on CD, vinyl and digital, alongside an expanded 3CD edition and a deluxe box set.
They are currently touring to support their tenth album “Hardwired… To self destruct” which debuted at #1 on the US Billboard 200!
