Big 4

If you follow me on Twitter [@eveofdoom] then you know I spent a very headbanging day at Yankee Stadium in New York at The Big 4 metal concert back on Wednesday, September 14, 2011. For an old-school metalhead like me, seeing Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax share a concert bill is a dream come true, and this 7-hour metal extravaganza did not disappoint.

Metallica recently released an official 30-minute video with behind-the-scenes footage and sound check, as well as their performance of “Blackened” (complete with lots of fire and laser-show action) and the encore jam of Motorhead’s “Overkill” including members of all four bands.

Watch it here below.

Of note, guitarist Gary Holt of Exodus, who is filling in for Slayer’s ailing Jeff Hanneman, was also in on the jam, making this a Big 5 appearance!!!

If you check out the Geeks of Doom YouTube Page, you’ll find more of our side-stage videos from Megadeth’s set.

Tidbit: Bronx Borough President Rubien Diaz Jr. proclaimed September 14, 2011 Anthrax Day in the Bronx and awarded the New York natives with a spot in the borough’s Walk of Fame — and it was all thanks to the crazy metalheads at the office of the Borough President (metalheads have infiltrated NY politics, woo!!!). Thanks to those awesome metalheads, the Geeks of Doom got to watch the show from the side of the stage! Check out the 30-second stage-side video here below we took during Metallica’s set.

The first-ever Big 4 concert, titled The Big Four: Live From Sofia, Bulgaria, is out on DVD and Blu-ray.
