The group deliver a blistering performance musically, but James Hetfield, perhaps encouraged by the audience response, lets the crowd fill in some of the vocal parts on 'Master of Puppets' while he and the band let loose with their furious playing. The song is definitely a highlight of the forthcoming release.
Metallica headed to Quebec City in the fall of 2009 as part of their 'World Magnetic Tour' and the shows were filmed for the forthcoming DVD/Blu-Ray offering, 'Quebec Magnetic,' which will be in stores Dec. 10. This will be the band's first release via their new Blackened Recordings label.
The group recently announced the launch of the label in coordination with the news that they had taken control of the masters of their past recordings, giving the band full access over how their music is used going forward. Part of having control means the band can offer their concert film at the reasonable price of $15.98 for either the DVD or Blu-Ray format.
Fans were allowed to vote on the set list, and the home video will include 18 songs from the concert, plus an additional eight "bonus songs." 'Quebec Magnetic' can be pre-ordered here.
