Yesterday (18), Metallica performed in Beijing for the first time in the history of their career. While we managed to dig up a few fan clips, today we have professionally shot footage of their performance of “One” featuring the reunited guest musician Lang Lang, which we saw at 2014’s Grammy Award ceremony.

Here’s your chance to listen to Metallica and Lang Lang play ‘One’

Posted by on February 18, 2014

A few weeks back, Metallica and Chinese pianist Lang Lang got together to play “One” on the Grammy Awards. Reaction was mixed, but it was certainly an interesting and ambitious rendition. The performance was quickly scrubbed from the Internet, never to be heard again, until last week, when the “awards show rehearsal” version of the […]

Metallica and Lang Lang’s version of “One” available for download

The Grammys, eh? They sure were polarizing. While it was nice that Black Sabbath got to pick up an award, most metal fans were a little, make that a lot, disappointed by the show. First of all, Slayer’s Jeff Hanneman was snubbed in the list of musicians that passed in 2013. Then the Nine Inch […]

Metallica release “One” from ‘Through the Never’

Posted by on January 28, 2014

[youtube]http://youtu.be/tbFZO1V5hrE[/youtube] So we’ve got nothing against Lang Lang. In fact, he’s a stupendous and incredibly talented pianist. Yet Metallica’s “One” sounds a hell of a lot better when it’s played by James, Kirk, Lars and Rob and only them. Since Metallica Through the Never is out today on DVD, Blu-Ray and on demand, the band have […]

In a few hours, music’s biggest night (their words, not ours) will occur as the 56th Annual Grammy Awards will take place. And like previous years, by the time the televised event starts, the bulk of the other awards have already been handed out. Metal is no exception, and this year’s winner for best metal […]

Kvelertak outdid themselves at the Norwegian Grammys

Posted by on January 20, 2014

[youtube]http://youtu.be/eMRn4GMwTfA[/youtube] I guess it’s pretty cool that this Sunday, 25 years after they made their awards show debut by playing “One” at the Grammy awards and subsequently losing to Jethro Tull, that Metallica will be  performing on this Sunday’s awards. It’s even cooler that they’ll actually, once again, be performing “One,” this time with Chinese […]

Posted by on January 7, 2014

Well, normally there isn’t much in the way of metal performances at the Grammys, but it looks like Metallica will be taking the stage this year for the first time since 1991. […]
