Metallica have released a video of their performance of classic track For Whom The Bell Tolls.

It was filmed at New York’s Webster Hall on September 27 – a show that was exclusively set up for the band’s Fifth Members fan club. It also took place on the 30th anniversary of bassist Cliff Burton’s death.

The clip shows fans queuing outside the Manhattan venue, the crew setting up equipment, Metallica going through their soundcheck, interviews with Fifth Members and live footage from the performance.

Metallica are gearing up for the launch of their highly anticipated 10th album Hardwired… To Self-Destruct, which will be released on November 18 on their own Blackened Recordings label.

They’ve released two tracks from the album so far in the shape of Hardwired and Moth Into Flame.

Metallica have announced a number of live appearances in the coming months, with more to be added in due course.
