Metallica set to play theBlack Album in full atSoundwave 2013?

Soundwave Festival boss AJ Maddah has revealed that Metallica will be using their famed “Snakepit” set up on the festival tour next month, which strongly suggests that the band will be playing their 1991 self-titled record – “The Black Album” – in full.

In a series of tweets Maddah conformed that there won’t be a D at the main stage this year and that Soundwave will be using combination of Snakepit, T and Static barriers at the festival’s stages.

The presence of the Snakepit all but confirms that Metallica will be playing The Black Album as they resurrected the pit for their 20th anniversary “Black Album” shows in Europe last year. Hyping the tour, the band’s official website told fans, “For those of you who were with us almost 20 years ago for the summer of ’92-’93 tours, you might recall that diamond shaped pit extending from the middle of the stage, well it’s baccccckkkk for our little summer vacation! … What would a tour of the Black Album be without a snake pit?”

Last year’s 16-date Black Album tour saw Metallica headline several European festivals including the Portuguese edition of Rock in Rio Festival, Spain’s Sonisphere Festival, Rock am Ring in Germany and Download in England.

While the full details of the Soundwave 2013 set-times aren’t scheduled to be released until late next week, Maddah has already confirmed that Metallica will headline the festival with a two hour show.

I'm not the biggest fan of the Black Album but that setlist makes me hard. Awesome opening and encore. I dream of Four Horsemen live.

Cool, only need to watch the beginning of their set now which means I can see Paramore.

Oflick

Oflick said on the 15th Jan, 2013

From what I know Paramore will be playing for the first half of Metallica and Offspring for the second. So you'll probably still miss a fair amount of Paramore.

loudQUIETloud said on the 15th Jan, 2013

Didn't AJ say that the 'pop-punk' stage was going to be All Time Low then Paramore during Metallica's set?

Oflick

Oflick said on the 15th Jan, 2013

Did he? I was under the impression there was another stage (called a second main stage, even though it's a lot smaller) which went Paramore then Offspring. This may have changed. Just have to wait until the timetables are released.

loudQUIETloud said on the 15th Jan, 2013

Ahh fair enough, I heard this in like September so it's most likely changed since then.

Oflick

Oflick said on the 15th Jan, 2013

I'm only going by the bits of information I got from skimming through AJ's twitter feed. I could have misread or just be completely wrong. Like I said, we'll just have to wait for the timetable to be released.

When I heard of them playing the Black Album in full I wasn't all that keen on the idea, but fuck that setlist is actually so killer. I would much prefer Ride the Lightning or Master of Puppets in full, but at least the non-Black Album tracks r00lz.

wouldn't it be a better idea to play the black album in order?

berlinchair101

Would prefer the Black Album played in this order.

1. "Fight Fire with Fire"
2. "Ride the Lightning"
3. "For Whom the Bell Tolls"
4. "Fade to Black"
5. "Trapped Under Ice"
6. "Escape"
7. "Creeping Death"
8. "The Call of Ktulu" (Instrumental)
9. "Battery"
10. "Master of Puppets"
11. "The Thing That Should Not Be"
12. "Sanitarium (Welcome Home)"
13. "Disposable Heroes"
14. "Leper Messiah"
15. "Orion"
16. "Damage Inc."

Jeez, that is uber lame.

Why not play Master Of Puppets - would be appropriately epic.

jason newstead although playing on the last good metallica records is regarded among most metallica fans as a bit of a laughing stock thanks to his post metallica reality show. band.

hang on a minute why they skip and justice for all ill tell ya why because they cant fucking play it anymore!!!!!!!

Pretty sure they've been busting out Harvester Of Sorrow, Blackened and Dyers Eve on the last few tours. Not to mention that they always play One.

Oflick

Oflick said on the 17th Jan, 2013

I think he was referring to the song itself, not the album. But I thought they started playing it again a few years ago.

lineofbestfit

lineofbestfit said on the 17th Jan, 2013

jason is better than bob though.

moventura

moventura said on the 17th Jan, 2013

from what i understand of timetables, paramore/all time low will be on one stage, metallica on another stage and offspring on another stage. all 3 will be clashing. offspring and paramore are about 70 minutes and metallica 2 hours.

Probably because Lars can no longer play the old stuff, that's if he could in the first place.

This will do very nicely in the place of The Black Album.
