(The Metal Den) TMD has unearthed another one of the earliest Metallica demo tracks ever. It is a recording of Diamond Head's "Sucking My Love", featuring Dave Mustaine on guitar, Ron McGovney on bass, Lars Ulrich on drums and James Hetfield on vocals.

Official Metallica historian Bob Nalbandian states it for the record: "For Metallica fans, this was definitely the rarest, and earliest, material to ever surface. No one knew this recording even existed, since original bassist Ron McGovney had the only copy of this garage practice session (this tape was too crude even be labeled a demo!).

"The tape features the Diamond Head covers "Sucking My Love," "Helpless" and "Am I Evil" (the latter two which Metallica later re-recorded and released commercially), and their very first original tune, "Hit the Lights." Recorded in Ron's garage in March of '82 (two months after the band was formed) by suspending a $49.00 ghetto blaster in the air, and with James singing through the guitar amp..." - Listen to the extremely rare track here
