Metallica share Whiplash performance from Boston Calling

Metallica are sharing video of a performance of their 1983 classic, “Whiplash”, from a May 29 appearance at the Boston Calling festival.

The track was originally featured on the group’s debut album, “Kill ‘Em All”, which they began recording a month after they fired Dave Mustaine and brought in new guitarist Kirk Hammett, who was a founding member of the California thrash band Exodus.

Several songs from the debut remain fan favorites and continue in high rotation in live shows, including “Seek & Destroy”, “The Four Horsemen” and “Motorbreath.”

Metallica are currently preparing to launch a summer series of dates across Europe that will begin at Denmark’s Copenhell festival on June 15.
