Metallica have shared another preview of their upcoming live concert film S&M2, which captures their 2019 performance with the San Francisco Symphony at the Chase Center.
In the latest preview, the metal legends rock out to “Moth into Flame,” a cut off their 2016 album Hardwired… To Self Destruct. It’s a dramatic reimagining of the arena-ready anthem, and a wistful glimpse at the splendour of concerts prior to the coronavirus pandemic.
S&M2 arrives almost 20 years after Metallica released S&M, their first collaboration with the Grammy Award-winning orchestra. The sequel will include 20 tracks and over 2.5 hours of performances.
“We were actually very excited about it and not nervous; I love that feeling when you can go in with a different kind of nervousness,” bassist Rob Trujillo told Kerrang! of the two recorded shows. “For me it was the excitement of doing something that I’d personally never done before, to feel the power of the orchestra, and to know that everybody in that building is absolutely excited and thrilled to experience this side of Metallica.”
S&M2 will be released on August 28. Watch Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony perform “Moth into Flame” here:
