‘The Ultimate Metallica Show’ Recap: ‘Reload’ Demo, Live Track in Denmark + More
I know I say it every week, but this past weekend's Ultimate Metallica Show was a lot of fun. Thank you for letting me crash your weekend for a couple of hours as we celebrated all things Mighty Metallica.
As usual, we covered a lot of ground together, including spinning some killer live tracks and heavy cover songs. But the standout moment for me was pulling out a demo from Reload that a lot of fans probably haven't heard. It comes from one one of Metallica's exclusive Fan Can releases, and you can see which track I played in the full recap and playlist below.
