New Documentary Remembers Metallica's First Headlining Show
A new documentary has been released that reveals the story of Metallica's first ever headline show in Europe. Titled "How Metallica raised hell in De Westereen," the 30-minute program was produced by Dutch public broadcaster Omrop Fryslân TV and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the show Metallica did in the small Dutch village Zwaagwesteinde (De Westereen) on June 9, 1984. It features interviews with Kirk Hammett and Lars Ulrich, sharing their recollections of the show. 

In other Metallica news, Lars Ulrich recently talked with Rolling Stone about the process of writing and recording "Ride the Lightning," with is 30 this year. As the drummer notes, the album gave the band a chance to "broaden their horizons":

"It was the first time that the four of us wrote together and we got a chance to broaden our horizons. I don't think it was a conscious effort to break away from anything musically. Obviously, listening to songs like 'Fight Fire With Fire' and 'Trapped Under Ice,' we were obviously still into the thrash type of stuff. But we were realizing you had to be careful that it didn't become too limiting or one-dimensional."
