For Whom the Bell Tolls (5:11)

Cover of Ride the Lightning

From Ride the Lightning and 316 other releases

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.
