For Whom the Bell Tolls (4:26)

Ernest Hemingway's epic written work about the perils of war through the eyes of those sent into battle to witness it is set to the haunting tones of a chiming bell and then the massive sonic onslaught of Cliff Burton and Lars Ulrich's driving relentless rhythm. And that's just the intro before the manic yet precise riffing of James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett take over.

Make his fight on the hill in the early day
Constant chill deep inside
Shouting gun, on they run through the endless grey
On the fight, for they are right, yes, by who's to say?
