The funny thing is I picture some death-bringing, iron armor clad, 500lb. 0% body fat, muscles the size of semi trucks, guy singing those vocals...then the scrawny little lead singer comes out running around the stage. Kinda dazzles one's brain.

If that dazzles your brain check out Arch Enemy's singer.

Or at least looking like someone from Gwar.

It was a great show but have to agree with some of the earlier posts, I just don't get the interest in Lamb of God. WTF was that? It's great that people are into that stuff, to each their own man, but wow I was left unimpressed.

Metallica rocked, great blend of old and new. I was actually surprised how many new songs they played. All the songs sounded great, did you notice how much more load they were compared to L.O.G.? We first noticed when they were doing the sound check on Lars' drums. Loaded show I have ever been too and loved every minute of it.

Metallica shows are always like that...they run the PA nowhere near full capacity for the opening acts. In some cases, it may even be just a little more than the stage guitar amps for the openers. One can only guess why they do this...maybe a combination of wanting to sound more massive than the openers and it costs too much to run that much juice for that long!

Lars' drum check before they take the stage is one of my favorite things of the show (as stupid as that sounds). You've been subjected to the crappy opening acts playing on a weaker system...then the sound of the gods erupt from his kick drum! Makes your insides rattle around!!!

Good show Metallica...next time (if there is a next time) i'm paying for better seats..nosebleeds just don't give you the full effect. No offense, but those opening acts just don't do it for me. I love metal, BUT.. no value in it for me...To each his own I guess.

If I could fault Metallica on one thing, it would be their opening act selection. Reference the Summer Sanitarium 2003 tour for further detail.

Exactly, we saw the line wrapping around the building before the doors opened. We had no interest in seeing them, nor waiting in line to get in so we went up to Fox and Hound for dinner and beers. It was fun seeing all the metalheads in uptown before the concert. Completely different crowd then you would see say on a friday or saturday night.

I am the opposite. I would probably go just for Lamb of God. I am not a fan of the newer Metallica. Anything after And Justice... is mostly crap to me. I could see myself leaving during the Metallica show. I was sort of psyched when I heard ST Anger was going to be heavier. It started out hard then went limp.

To each his own.
