Yes, most of the song is in 4/4, The "5" is actually the one of the next bar. Not sure why he counts 5, other than it must have made sense at the time.
Metallica has no songs that are entriely in odd times, but several songs on And Justice for All have bars of 5, 7 and such thrown in here and there.
