An Official pro footage surfaced today on my FB feed with a song they played 4 days ago in Portugal, clicking on it by curiosity and waiting it to be lackluster I was in fact surprised, very surprised.
Its Frantic but without the Trash Can Snare so it sound much better already, also Lars seem to have managed one song without any major mistakes:
Then again driven by curiosity I went to check their other performance videos and got into Fight Fire With Fire and damn... this is the Metallica I know. Ok they are older, miss some beats here and there but James is almost growling. Loved the attitude and the Energy:
They seem to be sounding better Live again, James doesn't seem to be singing from his Nose like someone with a Cold.
