When I was younger my dad introduced me to Metallica‘s album, Ride the Lightning. To date, that album is still one of my favorites and one that I associate with many memories, including seeing Metallica for the first time in 8th grade with my dad. There is always something special about seeing an iconic band like Metallica.
They have been around for so long and were such an important part of the heavy metal scene. Not only are they great to see live, but the feeling you get whilst being surround by thousands of super stoked fans really adds to the experience. Metallica fans are passionate folk.
Last week in San Antonio, Metallica took the Alamodome by storm, playing personal favorites like “For Whom the Bell Tolls”, “Fade to Black”, “The Four Horsemen”, and “Master of Puppets”. When they played S”eek and Destroy”, they set up at the end of the long stage, which extended into the crowd, providing a more intimate experience.
During the intro of “One”, there were explosions with smoke and fire, sounds of gun fire, and lasers to emulate battle.
All in all, there was fuel, fire and everything (mostly) I could have desired.
Though the members of Metallica are getting older, that doesn’t seem to slow them down much. You can tell they love what they are doing and want to provide the best experience they can for their fans.
