See METALLICA play their longest song "Inamorata" live for the first time

'72 Seasons' fan favorite got its live debut in Munich

The surprises kept coming at Metallica's two-show weekend standoff in Munich, Germany. Beyond the torrential downpour that soaked the band and the rest of the Olympiastadion on Friday night (May 25th), the band's Sunday (May 27th) performance found Metallica raining down the live debut of 72 Seasons' epic "Inamorata."

The 11-minute opus — Metallica's longest studio track to date — dropped into the set about midway through the performance.
