Metallica Release ‘The Memory Remains’ Clip From ‘S&M2′ Film
Metallica are previewing their upcoming S&M2 concert movie with a clip of the song "The Memory Remains." The film documents two concerts the band performed last month with the San Francisco Symphony.
S&M2 will be screened on Oct. 9 in more than 3,000 theaters around the world. (You can find the one nearest to your location at the movie's website.) The shows celebrated the 20th anniversary of the original S&M shows, as well as the opening of the new Chase Center on San Francisco's waterfront.
The two musical forces combined to perform several songs from the 1999 dates plus some new compositions the band has released since then. The orchestra was conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas.

One of the show's highlights came from the symphony's bassist, Scott Pingel, who performed Cliff Burton's "Anesthesia (Pulling Teeth)" solo on an upright bass. As Pingel told UCR, playing the late Burton's piece was something he wanted to do ever since he was a teenager.
"I remember sitting in my house, listening to the Kill 'Em All album, and hearing that solo," he said. "It was such a cool sound, particularly the way he used the effects. I had no idea whatsoever how he did it. I had no idea about effects pedals, but I loved it. I never really explored how to do it until a few months ago."
