Watch Metallica’s Secret Surprise Show as ‘Dehaan’ at Orion Music 2013

metallica, kill em all, dehaan

When Metallica took the stage at this year’s Orion Music + More Festival under the alias Dehaan to perform their entire 1983 debut album, Kill ‘Em All, SPIN labeled it the Best Surprise of the two-day showcase. “As Metallica launched into ‘Hit the Lights,’ the audience was too busy capturing this intimate Metallica gig on camera phones to really mosh,” SPIN’s Christopher R. Weingarten wrote. Lucky for everyone not in attendance, someone in the crowd has uploaded the entire 52-minute gig online. Celebrate Kill ‘Em All‘s 30th anniversary by watching the furious 10-song set above. 

The band’s pseudonym is a reference to Dane DeHaan, the lead actor in Metallica’s upcoming documentary-ish 3D concert film, Metallica Through the Never.
