Robert Trujillo recently revealed his favorite METALLICA deep cut to play live in a discussion with the mixed martial arts website MMA Junkie.
Trujillo explained that the song, from METALLICA’s 1988 album “…And Justice for All”, represents for him some of the most progressive aspects of the legendary metal act.
Robert explains: “My favorite deep cut with Metallica is, by far, ‘The Frayed Ends of Sanity.’ That is a song I think we’ve played twice, maybe — not more than three times. We did play it a couple of times on tour, but it is a rarity.”
The song is “probably the craziest” of METALLICA’s catalog, he adds.
“What I like about that particular song is that it has all the ingredients that I like about Metallica. It has the power grooves, the stuff that makes you headbang, but at the same time, it gets crazy in the middle section,” the bassist continues. “It feels progressive like that, and that’s what I actually like about it because there’s something that’s loose and reckless, but at the same time it’s tight, so it has to be a conceived body of music in that section.” [courtesy of BraveWords]
