Metallica gave us a new awesome version of their classic Blackened song playing from their homes! Blackened was the first track of the 1988 studio album …And Justice for All. Enjoy:

And here are the lyrics – some say the band selected to perform this one because it somehow relates to the COVID-19 situation we experience. I don’t know, for me, it’s just because it is one of their best songs:

Blackened is the end
Winter it will send
Throwing all you see
Into obscurity
Death of mother earth
Never a rebirth
Evolution's end
Never will it mend never
Fire to begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened
Blistering of earth
Terminate its worth
Deadly nicotine
Kills what might have been
Callous frigid chill
Nothing left to kill
Never seen before
Breathing nevermore never
Fire to begin whipping dance of the dead
Blackened is the end
To begin whipping dance of the dead
Color our world blackened
Blackened
Opposition, contradiction premonition compromise
Agitation violation mutilation, planet dies
Darkest color
Blistered earth
True death of life
Termination, expiration,…
