Metallica perform The Black Album at Louder Than Life festival

Metallica performed their self-titled 1991 record – aka The Black Album – in its entirety during a September 26 appearance at the Louder Than Life festival in Louisville, KY.

After opening the show with 2016’s “Hardwired” and a pair of classic tracks, the band launched into a full version of the album in reverse order – beginning with the rarely-played “The Struggle Within” and “My Friend Of Misery”, and eventually closing out their regular set with “Enter Sandman” before returning for encores.

The Sunday night gig marked Metallica’s second appearance during the weekend event, after they headlined on September 24.

The performance comes just weeks after the group released a series of 30th anniversary reissues of “Metallica”, which helped return it to the US Top 10 for the first time in three decades.
