Metallica have shared a previously unreleased version of their classic Ride The Lightning track For Whom The Bell Tolls.
It was recorded on August 3, 1986, at the Hampton Coliseum during the last show on Ozzy Osbourne’s Ultimate Sin tour and features John Marshall on rhythm guitar. He stepped in after James Hatfield broke his arm earlier that summer.
The track has been lifted from the band’s upcoming reissue of Master Of Puppets, which will arrive on November 10 via their Blackened Recordings label.
It’ll be available in a variety of formats, with a limited edition deluxe box set containing 10 CDs, two vinyl LPs, two DVDs and a cassette, along with 108-page hardback book, lithograph, folder with handwritten lyrics and six button badges.
Speaking about the reissue last month, drummer Lars Ulrich said: “There are so many things associated with Master Of Puppets – it is an immense project.
“Master Of Puppets seemed to be the culmination of the journey that had started four or five years before with James and I getting together, writing some songs, Kirk Hammett and Cliff Burton joining, and that lineup settling.”
Master Of Puppets (Remastered) is available for pre-order (opens in new tab).
The band will resume their WorldWired tour next month with dates planned across the UK and Europe.
