LAS VEGAS, NEVADA - NOVEMBER 26: Singer/guitarist James Hetfield of Metallica performs during a stop of the band's WorldWired Tour at T-Mobile Arena on November 26, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Metallica releases pro-shot clips of their shows to their YouTube channel all of the time, but this performance of “Master of Puppets” is quite the sight.

The video below shows the metal icons during their June 18 gig in Manchester, England powering through the song in the middle of a very heavy rainstorm. Camera angles on Lars Ulrich really seem to capture just how intense the rain was coming down. Plus, the water splashing resulting from Ulrich beating the hell out of his drum just adds to the stunning visual.

Metallica is spending the summer on tour in Europe with their next show taking place July 6 in Berlin. They return stateside in September for their S&M2 shows at the new Chase Center in San Francisco on the 6th and the 8th. A complete list of tour dates can be found at
