Metallica surprised crowds at their Orion Music + More Festival in Detroit over the weekend when they hit the stage under a fake name to play their 1983 debut album in its entirety. During a slot scheduled for an unknown band named "Dehaan", Metallica walked on stage and gave fans a treat by playing their album "Kill 'Em All" from start to finish. The set was a huge surprise, since the band had only been scheduled to headline at the festival on Sunday. It turns out "Dehaan" is the last name of Dane DeHaan, the actor who stars in the band's new 3D film "Through The Never". James Hetfield introduced Dehaan before bringing out the rest of Metallica. The performance came just a month before the 30th anniversary of the release of "Kill Them All".

Trujillo told Billboard.com that there is a possibility of more INFECTIOUS GROOVES live performances in the future.
