Kirk Hammett relearns Metallica songs

As part of the upcoming Orion Music + More festival, Metallica will be performing their landmark album Ride the Lightning in its entirety. Guitarist Kirk Hammett tells Guitar World that this move requires a little woodshedding:

(A) lot of the songs in our set are on Ride the Lightning to begin with, so when it came time to actually think about doing (the whole album), the only songs we needed to rehearse were “Escape,” which we’ve never played live before, and “The Call of Ktulu,” which we have played live a lot, but not since December.
