Dyers Eve – MetallicaSteve Ley
Dyers Eve is the final track on Metallica's fourth album "... And Justice for All" (1988).
This excerpt is taken from the intro section of the song. It features the toms and crash-cymbals sounding in rhythmic unison with the guitars – working in a 2+2+3 beat framework.
Immediately following this section, a monster swiss-triplet based fill (played over what sounds like ten toms) acts as a bridge to the main part of the song.
Dyers Eve was difficult to reproduce live and although it was a fan-favourite, it was not played in concert until 2004, sixteen years after its release.
