Metallica lit up the stage in Copenhagen Wednesday night in their first European gig since the pandemic hit.

They headlined the first night of the city’s four-day Copenhell festival; a homecoming show of sorts for Danish drummer and co-founder Lars Ulrich.

They opened with “Whiplash” followed by “Creeping Death,” and then “Enter Sandman” just three songs in (traditionally their set closer!)

They also threw in the rare cut “Trapped Under Ice,” previously played just five times in the last 13 years, and returned Damage Inc., which had all but disappeared from Metallica’s sets in recent years.

The last two songs that made up the encore: “One” and “Master Of Puppets.”
