Metallica have shared newly released professional footage of their lilting western-swing rendition of Kill 'Em All track "The Four Horseman" at the All Within My Hands Foundation's special Helping Hands concert in November. The performance opens with singer-guitarist James Hetfield picking on his acoustic guitar before the band and their expanded lineup for the night join in over the next few measures. Drummer Lars Ulrich's steady shuffle lays the perfect backbone for the country-fied take, which still features the signature snare drum accents that drive the original track. Guitarist Kirk Hammett adds to the alterations, as well, utilizing a guitar slide for that down-home bluesy sound on his laid-back leads.
The full audio performance will be released on a limited-edition, 140g colored 2-LP set on February 1st with pre-orders available here. More clips are sure to to emerge; in the meantime, you can watch Metallica's previously released pro-shot video of their "Disposable Heroes" performance, as well as fan-filmed footage of other cuts.
