Metallica Have To Learn Metallica

(Gibson) Metallica are set to perform 1991's "Black Album" in its entirety when they perform at next June's Download Festival at Donington in the U.K. But, according to the NME, drummer Lars Ulrich said the band will have to re-learn some of the album – including two tracks that Metallica has never played live.

The concert will include 'The Struggle Within' and 'Don't Tread on Me," Ulrich confirmed, and said: "Although to be honest with you, a song like 'The Struggle Within' is a lot easier to relearn than 'The Frayed Ends of Sanity [from …And Justice for All]. I don't think it's going to be too difficult for us to figure out these songs."

He said that the idea to play the album straight through came from Download Festival organizers.

"The people at Download asked. It wasn't our idea," Ulrich said. "The thing is, although we haven't played at Donington for six years, we have been to England pretty much every summer since then. So they wanted us to do something different, and that's what they came up with." more on this story
