Considering they've only been playing it since 2016, "Moth Into Flame" has quickly become a regular part of Metallica's live set. They've already performed it at nearly every single show of 2022, including their run of European gigs beginning with their concert in Copenhagen on June 15.

Now, they're sharing one of the most recent performances of the Self-Destruct track as their latest pro-shot live video. You can watch "Moth Into Flame" live at Firenze Rocks in Florence, Italy, on June 19, in the video below.

Watch Metallica Perform "Moth Into Flame" Live in Florence

The performance of "Moth Into Flame" at Firenze Rocks marked Metallica's 175th time playing the song. The first time they ever shared it with fans from the stage was on Sept. 27, 2016, at the epic club show at New York City's Webster Hall. That day was important for a number of reasons, including the fact that it was the 30th anniversary of Cliff Burton's death.

As fans can quickly see at the beginning of the newly-released video, Metallica are having a blast playing over all Europe. The video opens with Robert Trujillo and James Hetfield goofing around, playing the other's instrument, and then Hetfield messes up his intro for the song.

"That's an eight-count, James," he told himself. "Be professional."
