Metallica - The Ecstasy of Gold (Kalimba Tab)

The Ecstasy of Gold is a musical composition originally composed by Italian composer Ennio Morricone for the soundtrack of the 1966 spaghetti western film "The Good, the Bad and the Ugly," directed by Sergio Leone. The piece has since become iconic and is often associated with Morricone's work in the western genre. Metallica later incorporated "The Ecstasy of Gold" into their live performances. The band commonly uses it as the introductory music before they take the stage.

Metallica's version of the song, as played in their concerts, has become a distinctive and recognizable part of their live shows. Ennio Morricone's original composition is an instrumental piece that captures the tension, drama, and grandeur often associated with spaghetti westerns. The music builds a sense of anticipation and excitement, making it a fitting choice for both the film and Metallica's use as an intro for their performances. The song has been widely praised for its emotive power and has become a classic in film music history.
