Audio: Metallica at the Agora, 1983



OK, so the audience recording here isn't *great* — but the very fact that we can hear such an early recording of Metallica playing in Cleveland is awesome. Dec. 18, 1983: Ride the Lightning was still a almost year away, but several songs from that album show up here.

The Ecstasy of Gold (Ennio Morricone song)
Hit the Lights
The Four Horsemen
Jump in the Fire
Fight Fire With Fire
Ride the Lightning
Phantom Lord
The Call of Ktulu (Early version called "When Hell Freezes Over")
No Remorse
Seek & Destroy
(Anesthesia) Pulling Teeth

Creeping Death
(Guitar Solo)
Metal Militia
