Watch Pantera, Metallica, AC/DC Tear Up Moscow
Band Photo: Metallica (?)
Ozzfest and Sounds of the Underground are fine and all, but back in 1991 the Monsters of Rock festival in Moscow featured Pantera, Metallica and AC/DC on the same bill. In addition to being a great concert, the show had real historical impact. It was the first mega-metal festival to follow the collapse of the Soviet Union and it was a sign of the changes and hardships to come.
MTV has posted a stream of Pantera playing “Cowboys From Hell,” “Primal Concrete Sledge” and “Psycho Holiday”; Metallica opening with “Enter Sandman,” and continuing the assault with “Creeping Death” and “Fade to Black”; And AC/DC capping off the night with “Back in Black,” “Highway to Hell,” “Whole Lotta Rosie” and “For Those About to Rock (We Salute You). The beginning of the 112 minute-long video capturing the event features the caption, “In August of 1991 in the U.S.S.R., the young challenged the old. Those who questioned authority triumphed.” Indeed, (re)visit this moment in history for some metal education, or to breathe in a little nostalgia.
