Watch Metallica Perform “Battery” Live in Japan in 1986


Metallica have unveiled a live performance of “Battery” filmed in  Nagoya, Japan in 1986. The footage comes from the super-duper-extra-special-deluxe re-mastered edition of Master of Puppets, which comes out November 10 (pre-order it here).

So how is it? You’d assume it’s amazing, but it’s actually only really great. The reason: while the audio is solid, the entire thing was shot with a single camera, and not one placed near the stage (I’m not sure but it may have very well been bootleg originally). So it’s not quite the you-are-there experience that would be ideal.

Still pretty cool, though:
