Watch Metallica’s James Hetfield play Ghost’s Cirice

Metallica vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield warms up in the studio by playing Ghost track Cirice

Metallica vocalist and guitarist James Hetfield can be seen jamming Ghost track Cirice in a new video.

The rehearsal footage was filmed at Metallica’s HQ and shows Hetfield playing the intro and riff from the song, which featured on Ghost’s 2015 album Meliora.

Watch the footage below.

Earlier this week, footage emerged of three Metallica fans getting a tour of the band’s HQ after they won a competition the band ran in conjunction with Ernie Ball. The trio were shown around the band’s inner sanctum by Hetfield and guitarist Kirk Hammett.

The band recently wrapped up live dates in Europe in support of their latest album Hardwired… To Self Destruct and will head back out on the road across North America from September.
