Metallica stream 1983 rarity Phantom Lord from Megaforce tribute concert

Metallica are streaming proshot video of a rare performance of the 1983 track, “Phantom Lord”, from their November 6 tribute concert in honor of the founders of Megaforce Records, Jon and Marsha Zazula.

The event at Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, FL saw Metallica honor the late husband and wife duo and their record label, which released the band’s first two albums: 1983's "Kill 'Em All" and 1984's "Ride The Lightning."

The show – which featured music exclusively from those records – marked only the 5th time that "Phantom Lord" was performed over the last 10 years, while giving fans a rare, full version of the song.

A portion of the proceeds from the show are being donated in Jonny and Marsha’s name to MusiCares, a safety net supporting the health and welfare of the music community offering preventive, emergency, and recovery programs to musicians and industry professionals; Metallica’s All Within My Hands Foundation has also provided a donation to the Feeding South Florida food bank.

Pick up your copies of “Kill ‘Em All” here and “Ride The Lightning” here.
