Watch Metallica debut “Hardwired” track “ManUNkind” live

ABC/Randy HolmesDuring their show in Paris over the weekend, Metallica performed their song “ManUNkind” — a track from the band’s new album Hardwired…to Self-Destruct — live for the first time. Now, the metal legends have shared an official live video of the performance, which you can watch on YouTube.

“ManUNkind” begins with a bass solo from Robert Trujillo, which he wrote as a tribute to the late Cliff Burton.

“In a way, that to me is a tip of the hat to Cliff Burton and the spirit of Cliff,” Trujillo told Canada’s Exclaim! TV. “If you hear that little thing before ‘ManUNkind,’ for me personally, that was with Cliff in mind.”

Metallica is currently touring Europe in support of Hardwired…to Self-Destruct. The outing will last all the way into May 2018.
