Metallica’s M72 World Tour Showcases Electrifying Performance of ‘Through the Never’ | Society Of Rock Videos

Metallica delivered the tour debut of “Through the Never” on their May 28 show in Germany.

As part of the band’s M72 World Tour, Metallica included the song “Through the Never” on their second of a pair of shows at the Volksparkstadion, Hamburg setlist. Initially, it was released as the seventh track on their fifth self-titled studio album, better known as The Black Album.

The trek supports the launch of Metallica’s latest album 72 Seasons, but the band promised to perform their classic hits as well.

In a recent interview with Bass Player, Robert Trujillo stated:

“One of the beautiful things about being in Metallica is that there’s no shortage of great ideas. … With every handful of riffs we get out of Kirk, there’s another 500 we didn’t hear. I might have 10 spare ideas for every one I put forward, things that don’t even get listened to. So I have this arsenal of bass lines and riffs that I sit on.”

He added:

“And it’s not that nobody wanted to listen to them – we just had enough. There comes a point where you don’t need any more. All of these songs have a lot of cool ideas in them.” Describing his career with the thrash icons as a “beautiful thing,” that involved “pulling together all these riffs to be played by such amazing musicians who each have their own signature,” he continued: “That’s a special thing for me. But the scary thing is that there’s always another 10 other riffs that didn’t make it to the drawing board… they’re just sitting there. It’s gotta be the best for Metallica.”

Live recordings of the pair of Hamburg shows are now available for pre-order at Metallica’s official online store. Watch Metallica’s live performance of “Through the Never” in the video below.
