"The Unforgiven III" is a song by the heavy metal band Metallica and appears on the album Death Magnetic released in 2008. It is the second continuation of the song "The Unforgiven", which appears on the album Metallica. The song is precedent for the song "The Unforgiven II" (which makes appearance on the album Reload), which is the first sequel. Despite being part of the series, "The Unforgiven III" is structured similar to "The Unforgiven", containing a heavy verse and a soft chorus, "The Unforgiven II" had the opposite making it different from the rest. "The Unforgiven III" is also missing the opening horn note, opening instead with an acoustic piano with a horn section in the background. Also, a major difference is the lack of melancholia and the sense of remorse, evident in its prequels, both lyrically and musically. It was not released as a single, as its predecessors were. A live version was performed for the first time on April 14, 2010 in Oslo, Norway.
