Watch Metallica and San Francisco Symphony’s Performance of ‘Moth Into Flame’ From S&M2
Epic performance previews upcoming concert film
For the song, which first appeared on the 2016 double-LP, Hardwired… to Self-Destruct, both James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett take their guitar solos off the stage and into the symphonic section — giving those who were at the show that night the 360-degree experience.
Metallica have previously shared “Nothing Else Matters” and “All Within My Hands,” along with the trailer, which teases interviews with the band and classical music directors.
S&M2 was filmed in 2019 on Sept. 6 and Sept. 8 at the Chase Center in San Francisco — the arena’s first-ever concerts. The sets reunited Metallica with the symphony after their 1999 collaboration for the S&M live album.
