Heavy metal band, Metallica has shared their video live performing track named “For Whom The Bell Tolls” from the upcoming Metallica And San Francisco Symphony: S&M2 live album. Watch the video below.
The track, “For Whom The Bell Tolls” was first released on Metallica’s second album, 1984’s Ride The Lightning. The video filmed at Chase Center in San Francisco, California on September 6 and 8, accompanied by the San Francisco Symphony.
The live album, ‘S&M2’ is the follow-up to the band’s 1999 live album ‘S&M’, and was recorded in San Francisco over two nights in September 2019 with the San Francisco Symphony to commemorate the 20th anniversary of ‘S&M’.
The track was impressed by Ernest Hemingway’s 1940 novel of the same identify concerning the means of loss of life in modern warfare and the bloody Spanish Civil War. Particular allusions are made to the scene described in Chapter 27 of the e-book, during which 5 soldiers are obliterated throughout an airstrike after taking a defensive place on a hill.
