The latest entry in Metallica‘s continuing “Metallica Mondays” concert series is a big one. The series has seen the band digging up pro-shot footage of shows from across their career and broadcasting it on the group’s YouTube channel and Facebook page, and has been a great way for homebound fans to pass two-plus hours the social-distancing restrictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, the thrash OGs flashed back to June 10th, 2012, when they celebrated the 20th anniversary of their self-titled 1991 album, a.k.a. “the Black Album,” at Pannonia Fields II in Nickelsdorf, Austria — by playing it in its entirety. Watch the performance and check out the set list below.

So far the series has included seven shows: at Slane Castle in Ireland in 2019; Paris’ AccorHotels Arena in 2017; Forum København in Copenhagen, Denmark, in 2009; San Francisco’s Outside Lands Festival in the summer of 2017; Munich, Germany, in 2015;  L.C. Walker Arena in Muskegon, Michigan, in 1991; House of Vans in London, in 2016; and, of course, the latest concert.

In addition to “Metallica Mondays,” the heavy-music pioneers have also responded to the coronavirus crisis via their nonprofit organization, All Within My Hands, donating “four grants totaling $350,000 to organizations dedicated to assisting those hit hard by the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic.”
