A new video uploaded by YouTuber ATARAXIA shows Metallica attempting to play their iconic hit "Enter Sandman" backwards during one of their rehearsals.

In the video, reportedly filmed in 2013, Lars Ulrich, Robert Trujillo, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett are seen jamming in a studio, playing the notes of the song in the opposite sequence with their respective instruments.

Hetfield also makes an attempt to sing a line backward. After the attempt, he lets out a laugh, saying, "Could've been different!"

In the second portion of the video, the footage is rewound to see if it matches the original forward-moving song, and, surprisingly, the band's backward take sounds quite perfect.
