VIDEO: Metallica perform Master Of Puppets instrumental in Prague

Metallica performed “Orion”, the instrumental from 1986’s “Master Of Puppets” during their July 8th show in Prague, Czech Republic, and the band are now sharing video from the event.

The footage also includes the band warming up in the tuning room, as well as "St. Anger” from the show.

“Orion” was the lone instrumental on “Master Of Puppets”, the band’s third album and final one with bassist Cliff Burton, who died tragically in a tour bus accident in Sweden in September of 1986.

The album peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard 200 on its way to selling more than 6 million copies in the States alone.

Metallica recently wrapped up their “By Request” European tour and will perform at Heavy Montreal on August 9.
