FADE TO BLACK - LIVE AT THEPLAYHOUSE THEATRE 1986
Recored in December 1986 on the legendary Damage Inc tour in support of their classic 3rd LP, 'Master Of Puppets', the thrash kings of California shredded their way through unsuspecting Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
The show was one of the first to feature new bassist Jason Newsted, and took place less than 3 months after the tragic death of Cliff Burton. Despite the internal turmoil (the band planned to fire Lars Ulrich at the end of the tour - though that obviously never happened), and the tragic death of Burton, the band let it all out on stage and performed as if on a mission. Pure ripping thrash metal from the band that perfected the form, years before they went mainstream. Essential.
