Metallica’s “Spit Out The Bone” is most popular and faster song of their latest album “Hardwired… To Self-Destruct”. The song not premiered live in shows yet.

Metallica guitarist Kirk Hammett talked with Variety and he explained that why they not played live Spit Out The Bone yet. He said:

“‘Spit Out the Bone’ is the Mount Everest of the new album – the highest peak and the hardest ascent.


On the rest of the record, I improvised my solos – not that one. The instrumentation on that song is so tight that I wanted to solo with equal precision.

How hard is it to play? We haven’t done it yet live. We keep saying that we will by summer. We really have to work up to it!”

Apparently, Metallica will play “Spit Out The Bone” for the first time in one of the upcoming shows next summer. We have to wait…

      Yeah, I mean it’s kind of sad considering the fact that there are already cover bands playing the song… in it’s entirety… and very well I might add, lol. The song itself isn’t even more technical than Puppets… it just has more changes. I don’t know… they know the fans want to hear it… they just need to play the song.
