Watch Metallica Do “Blackened 2020” Acoustic Quarantine Style

Metallica give the ripping ‘…And Justice For All’ opener a social distance, semi-acoustic update.

When Metallica tweak their classics for acoustic performance, sometimes the songs assume a new personality. But even “Blackened 2020” still has a killer Kirk Hammett solo.

Also, seeing as how I’m posting this on a Monday, this seems like a great time to mention that tonight’s #MetallicaMondays never-before-seen full-length concert sounds like a compelling watch. Metallica: Live at House of Vans – November 18, 2016. Metallica playing an intimate venue for only a few hundred people? Doesn’t happen often. Should look and sound amazing. As with all the #MetallicaMondays concerts during quarantine, they’ll stream it live on their YouTube and Facebook channels at 7PM CT and make it available on-demand tomorrow. Fans are encouraged to donate to the band’s non-profit All Within My Hands Foundation during the broadcasts. #MetallicaMondays has raised $50,000 for Covid-19 relief thus far!
