Metallica stream 1985 live recording

Metallica have streamed a recording of live performances of Am I Evil and Motorbreath in 1985.

The clip was taped at the Kabuki Theatre in San Francisco on March 15 of that year, and it’ll appear on the upcoming deluxe remaster edition of second album Ride The Lightning.

It’s released on April 15 to tie in with Record Store Day, alongside a new edition of debut record Kill ‘Em All. Both will be available in limited-edition box sets, CD and vinyl.

Meanwhile, Metallica have been confirmed as the first band to play at the Minnesota Vikings’ new home at the US Bank Stadium, Minneapolis, on August 20. They’ll be joined by Avenged Sevenfold and Volbeat.

It’s thought the thrash giants will have completed work on their 10th album by that time.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
