At the recently concluded five-day music festival in Spain, Metallica amused the audience with their “For Whom the Bell Tolls” performance.

This track was the band’s 1984 classic that was featured on their second album, Ride the Lightning. The album that they have recorded in Copenhagen, Denmark with Flemming Rasmussen, who would also join the group to produce 1986’s Master Of Puppets.

According to, the “For Whom the Bell Tolls” is one of the top 5 most-played songs in concert by the band since its release almost 40 years ago. Metallica performed it on the first day of the Mad Cool Festival, which took place in Madrid, Spain. “Whiplash,” “Wherever I May Roam,” and “Seek and Destroy” were also added on their set list, which hyped up the whole crowd.

Imagine Dragons, Muse, Twenty One Pilots, Jack White, and The Killers, were among the acts who also performed at the event. Mad Cool was one of the last shows of Metallica as part of their Europe tour. The trek wrapped up by a show at NOS Alive in Lisbon, Portugal on July 8.

Watch the official performance video below. Some of the comments read:

“It’s heartwarming to see the guys having so much fun on stage. After all this years.”

“They are getting better year by year. Lars is a monster recently.”

“I think they each aged backwards like 10 years. They sound incredible.”
