Other than that, I can't think of any 5/4 songs on Master Of Puppets.

edit: Actually, there are single bars of 5/4 in Battery, where they sing the "BATTERY" line, but no prolonged sections of 5/4.
That's probably it, then. I just heard someone talk about there being a 5/4 song on MOP

Edit: just listened to Leper Messiah again and Lars derfinately counts to five...You can hear him behind the "tssch" sounds.And he hits the hi hat five times to count them in live: (at 1:11 in this video)
