Metallica stream Fade To Black from Bataclan live album

Metallica have streamed their performance of Fade To Black at the Bataclan venue in Paris in 2003.

It’s taken from live album Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite, Metallica! which will be released on April 15 to tie in with Record Store Day.

The band are official ambassadors for this year’s event. Drummer Lars Ulrich recently said: “Independent record stores are part of Metallica’s DNA – they’ve been pivotal in shaping each one of us into the music fanatics we’ve all become.”

All proceeds from sales will be donated to victims of the Bataclan terrorist attack last year, in which 89 people died.

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, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories 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.
