    General Commentright. its the piece played at the beginning of every metallica concert as each of the band members come onstage. a nice little piece and very fitting in the last bit of the 'some kind of monster' movie

    General CommentThis is a theme by Ennio Morricone, written for the movie "The Good, The Bad, The Ugly", it is heard as the Ugly enters the graveyard and searches for the tomb that contains the treasure

    General CommentEnnio Morricone really rules. If someone out there knows his music he will recognize that the intro of "the Unforgiven" with the trumpet and acoustic guitar is inspired by Ennio's style

    General Commentall of that is true. but have you been to a concert of metallica... its more then the music that gets played, the crowd screams the parts to the song. Hetfield is in the back of the stage leading his army of fans(as seen in somekind of monster). its metallica calling there fans...pumping them up for the night of there life. Ennio Morricone is an artist for creating such a pumping tune that will live for ever.

    General CommentI always wondered where this song came from, I never got to go to a Metallica concert and I have the S&M album. I couldn't recognize the name from any of the albums and then I looked at the composer and I was like "wtf". This clarifies where it comes from though, I am DEEPLY SADDENNED that I never got to attend a Metallica concert. I would have never questioned whether to live or not again, the answer would be simple: Live for metallica!

    General CommentThis is actually the theme from "The Good, The Bad and The Ugly", James' favorite movie. They play this everytime before a show to get them all pumped up.

    General CommentPretty good song played by Metallica on the new "We All Love Ennio Marconi" album. Its an album dedicated to Ennio Marconi who wrote the music to The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly. I'd advise all Metallica fans to check it out.

    General CommentI like the beginning of the 'tallica version of it, but i think Kirk got a little carried away with the Wah this time. Just a tad. Overall outstanding though
