Metallica Release Fourth Previously Unheard ‘Death Magnetic’ Song

Mary Ouellette,

Last night (Dec. 10), Metallica wrapped up their last of four intimate club shows at the Fillmore in San Francisco, Calif. offering up yet another track from the ‘Death Magnetic’ sessions titled ‘Rebel of Babylon.’

‘Rebel of Babylon’ marks the fourth previously unreleased song that Metallica performed over the special four show anniversary run in along with ‘Hell and Back,’ ‘Just a Bullet Away,’ and ‘Hate Train.’ Listen to ‘Rebel of Babylon’ below.

As had become quick tradition, the night also featured a slew of special guests taking the stage. Former band mate and current Megadeth frontman Dave Mustaine joined the band for several songs including ‘Phantom Lord,’ ‘Jump In The Fire’ and ‘Metal Militia.’

Before the show, rumors swirled that Ozzy Osbourne may make a guest appearance, and he did just that, but also brought along fellow Black Sabbath bandmate Geezer Butler. The two joined Metallica to perform Black Sabbath classics ‘Iron Man’ and ‘Paranoid’.

In fitting fashion, former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted joined them on stage one more time to perform ‘King Nothing’ and ‘Whiplash.’

The band also performed a song with a few fan club members, capping off a very special night for some lucky fans.

The show last night wraps up ‘fan club members-only’ run of shows, celebrating the band’s 30th anniversary.
