Metallica's two-day festival "Orion" went down on the weekend over in Atlantic City, New Jersey. As promised Metallica played a 2 hour set on opening night, that included their entire second album, "Ride The Lightning" in full.
The band performed the album in reverse, opening with the long instrumental "The Call of Ktulu" and with "Fight Fire With Fire". The song "Escape" received its world premiere, a somewhat shocking feat for a 28-year-old song, one of the best on the album.
