A day late (I worked a 12 hour shift yesterday so please forgive me), but I have to post to celebrate the 24th birthday of what is universally known as The Black Album. Metallica’s fifth full length opus launched the band into the musical stratosphere, sold millions of copies and set the band on a world tour that lasted for the best part of three years.
I saw the band for the first time on this tour on Saturday 24th October 1992 at Wembley Arena. I still remember every single detail of the show as if it was yesterday. Oh, the memories…
Here’s a live version (from the tour) of one of my favourite songs from The Black Album. It still sounds amazing.
