Metallica joined by King Diamond on stage at Ozzfest 2008, setlist and video footage of new song ‘Cyanide’ also posted

Metallica played Ozzfest 2008 this past Saturday and were joined by the legendary King Diamond for an encore of the Mercyful Fate classic ‘Mercyful Fate’.

Why can’t this happen more often? Metallica should bring a band like King Diamond or Mercyful Fate out on the road with them. It’s nice to see the band stay with a classic set as well, here’s their setlist:

‘Creeping Death’, ‘For Whom The Bell Tolls’, ‘Ride The Lightning’, ‘Harvester Of Sorrow’, ‘Welcome Home (Sanitarium)’, ‘Cyanide’ (a new song), ‘…And Justice For All’, ‘No Remorse’, ‘Fade To Black’, ‘Master Of Puppets’, ‘Damage Inc.’, ‘Nothing Else Matters’, ‘Sad But True’, ‘One’, ‘Enter Sandman’, ‘Mercyful Fate’ (with King Diamond), ‘Seek And Destroy’

Here’s the live performance of their new song ‘Cyanide’:
