A previously unreleased video of Metallica performing ‘Battery’ 31 years ago has been shared by the band.
Perfectly capturing the raw energy of Metallica’s performances in their early days, the clip was filmed at the Aichi Kinro Kaikan venue in Nagoya, Japan on 17th November 1986.
It was Metallica’s fourth show with bassist Jason Newsted in the band, who, of course, replaced the late-great Cliff Burton following his untimely death in Sweden on 27th September of that year.
Warning: The first 25 seconds of this video contains continuous strobe lighting effects.
The video is lifted from the Remastered Deluxe Box Set & 3-CD Expanded Edition of ‘Master of Puppets’, which is released across the globe on Friday 10th November.
Costing a whopping £149.99, the limited edition deluxe numbered box set of Master of Puppets includes three vinyl records (with a MP3 Download Card), ten CDs, two DVDs, one cassette, a hardcover book including never-before-seen photos, a folder containing handwritten lyrics, a set of six buttons and a "Damage, Inc." lithograph.
