Remember when we posted that fan-shot footage of Metallica's first-ever performance of "The Frayed Ends of Sanity"?

Well, screw that footage. The thrash masters have just released their own professionally shot, clip of the historic May 28 performance at the Sonisphere Festival in Helsinki, Finland.

"The Frayed Ends of Sanity" begins at the 22:30 mark in the following video.
