This was nothing more than Metallica making it look like they are not afraid of the other bands. And by the way they closed out the show with them doing metallica over every1 doin the am i evil song only shows how metallica are scared that they would be shown up for the has beens they are.
Typical sh!t move by the metalli-b1tches. IF THIS WAS ABOUT THE "BIG 4", then metallica fkd that up by making it about them as usual! BESIDES, THEIR SET SUCKED a$$ TO BEGIN WITH!
let the flaming begin!
If it was 2 hours of Slayer instead, i'd probably drop the coin on it. Even if it was 1 hour across the board for all bands i'd probably pay it. Instead, I'll have a friend download it so Metallica gets fvcked up the a$$.
rik: You're calling branded an idiot? He's seen it. Have you? Ba-a-a-a-a?
If this lineup plays at Panthers stadium next year...I'm there!! Besides, if Metallica were not on this tour, I hate to say, it probably wouldn't have happened. I love all 4 of these bands, each of them has left a huge mark on this genre of music. I would like to see them add a couple of band to the line up for the US tour...Exodus and Testament!!
Ty rik. Even though metallica, says you, put it together, they still showed low class by having themselves end the show and not everyone on "am i evil". I can see why KK, TA, and JH from Slayer chose to not be out there. They saw it before anyone else, how low metallica was being.
go ahead and call me what you will, but others feel the same way. You are only stating your opinion of me, and thats fine. Im not going to stress what some euro-turd says about me anyways!!
METALLICA STILL SUCKS THOUGH!!!
I wouldnt of hit the stage at encore either ...... Megadave is gona have to do alot of in depth work with his therapist after this a$$ raping by the boys agaiiiin !!!!! That being said, i will buy this dvd when it comes out .......but not before Clutch at the 9 30 club. ps. Now playing kill,ride,master on random.
I KNOW FOR A FACT THE OTHER THREE COULLD NOT HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT METALLICA, U OBVIOUSLY DIDNT WATCH IT, BECAUSE IF U DID THEN U WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT THE PLACE COULDNT EVEN FILL UP TIL METALLICA HIT THE STAGE, THEN PEOPLE WERE ACTUALLY THERE, METALLICA HAD A TRANCE ON THE CROWD, THEY MADE THE WHOLE THING, AND LARS IS THE ONE WHOO MADE IT HAPPEN, IT WAS HIS IDEA, METALLICA PUT IT TOGETHER, DID U SEE HOW MANY METALLICA SHIRTS THERE WERE? OBVIOUSLY PEOPLE ONLY CAME TO SEE METALLICA, THERE WERE MORE METALLICA SHIRTS THEN THERE WERE ANTHRAX, MEGADETH AND SLAYER SHIRTS COMBINE, UR AN IDIOT, WAKE THE F UCK UP FAGG OT
THEY PIT ON SUCH A GOOD SHOW, I WAS DOZING OFF AT THE OTHER BANDS, SLAYER WAS HARDCORE BUT NOT GOOD, ANTHRAX WAS HELL IN EARDRUM, MEGADETH WAS DECENT BUT 0 STAGE PRESENCE, METALLICA IS FAR BEYOND INCREDIBLE, THEY SOLD MORE ALBUMS THAN THE OTHER THREE COMBINE, METALLICA COULD HAVE RETIRED AND BEEN AT THE AGES OF 23, THE OTHER THREE BANDS STILL MIGHT NOT B ABLE TO, FACE FACTS, AS MUCH AS U HATE METALLICA, U MUST ADMIT THEY HAVE THE MOST TALENT, BEST FRONT MAN AND ACOUSTIC GUITARIST EVER, BEST DRUMMER, BEST ELECTRIC GUITARIST, AND HAD THE BEST BASSIST TIL HE DIED, BUT ROB IS INCREDIBLE TOO
31-32 i paid 18 bucks to watch it in the theater. ok, looks like another metalli-sheep is mad that someone has talked down upon their metalli-gods! boo fkn hoo!
Metallica sucks, no matter how high of a pedistal you put them on, they have trashed their careers out and went very low by doing what they did at Sonisphere. Go ahead and flame me back and rant on and on and on and on about metalli-this metalli-that, and ill keep telling you how much they suck a$$ now!!!
I didn't see it, but I like Metallica the best here out of all...but if what I'm hearing is true, then Metallica did go pretty low. I mean, to end a concert this epic? Everyone should come out and play! And yes, I mean EVERYONE, even if that did mean 4 drummers and so on, it would have been that much cooler! My opinion, though, say what you will, but it seems that branded is right.
WTF? metallica gets a 2 hour set while slayer and megadeth gets 1 hour IMO slayer out of the four should have had the 2 hour set thats bullsh** and whats with anthrax? Exodus or Testament would have been way more extreme but oh well cant have everything you want CHEERS MUTHA f***AS!!!
Why do you all have to trash on Metallica so much? why can't you just enjoy the music and stop with the petty trash talk? It seems if one guy trashes them there are ten more sucking the balls of the first guy that trashed them. You all know you secretly listen to Load and Reload when your buddies aren't around. Closet Metallica fans. It's ok, you can come out of there now. No one is going to judge you.
^Seriously metallica was f***ing badass until they came out with their self tilted album which was alright on my account, then they come out with that piece of sh** album Load, then all of a sudden they turn that piece of sh** into a pile of sh** which was reload and just when i thought they couldnt get any worse, boy did they ever prove me wrong with that garbage, ungrateful, unforgiving, nasty sounding beer sh** i have every morning St. Anger album just made me lose every piece of respect i had for them!
i don't have any buddies....i don't listen to load, or re-fvcking-load, or ANY of their dumpy records that followed what SHOULD have been the nadir and END of their 'efforts'....i do not reside in a closet....though i WILL COME OUT AND SAY THAT metallica IS FVCKING DOGSH!T....in EVERY aspect....at EVERY fvcking turn
got that? good....
now shut yer fvckin slathering holes, goddamned sucker fvcking punk slits
its so nice to see others who share my complete hatred for has-been-tallica!! All the fanboys need to understand that the bands they talk smack on have fans too. Just because we hate your metalli-gods, doesnt mean we are bad people, it means we are smart people!!
We can see through the metalli-greed and see them for the low life greedy di(ks they have become. AND METALLICA'S SET WAS SH1T AT THE BIG 4 SHOW!!
Branded: so you're a racist, ignornate of others opinions, feel the need to press your opinion on to others, you make up your mind as to how things come about even though you have no idea what lies behind these decisions and feel the need to spoil others enjoyment of music.
All these reasons make you a bad person and far from being smart.
fvcking jimmy jim....racist? well ain't that the go-to word of 'insult' that stupid a$$ motherf***ers pull outta their pockets when they ain't got ANYthing relevent or meaningful to say...."euro turd" ain't remotely racist, dumb fvck
as far as being ignorant of others opinions...what the fvck does that even mean? pretty sure any literate individual is quite aware of the opinions that have been expressed here...kinda the point of discussion, eh?
allowing someone's OPINION to be impressed upon you, or to have it ruin your enjoyment of ANYTHING, is YOUR fvcking problem
as far as having an idea regarding "how things come about"....well, that process is QUITE apparent in this case to anyone that has even the slightest bit of fvcking SENSE....of which YOU evidently possess none, as is so perfectly illustrated by your hypocritically ignorant (note spelling) presumptuous last sentence
baah--baah....goddamned sheep dip :)
"Branded: so you're a racist"
Where in this thread did I say anything about racial matters?
"and feel the need to spoil others enjoyment of music."
Nope, Metallica does that all on their own!!
"ignornate of others opinions"
Ignornate is spelled (ignorant)! Guess you need spelling class again!!!
"All these reasons make you a bad person and far from being smart."
I know it doesnt make us smarter people because we hate metallica, it was a joke. You are seriously taking everything you read way too seriously.
Metallica sucks and thats my final answer!!!
There are europeans of all races.
So its ok to talk smack at me, but just because i said "euro" makes me racist?! WELL, IM EUROPEAN AMERICAN, SO I CANT BE RACIST WHEN TALKING OF EUROPEANS!! They are my looooooooooong distant cousins! You just want to come on here and make yourself sound so above me. Go ahead, blabber on about whatever you want. The people here know the truth!
Well.. JimJim is... interesting. So... now "european" is a race? Hell, ain't that all fine and dandy.
I dislike metallica (to say the least). As someone who obviously knows a lil' something about history said, "they died in 1991".
And I'm not really fond of Antharx (who I do believe we're a good choice, despite other opinions).
And the 2 hours metallica vs 1 hour the rest is annoying (again, to say the least).
Still, gotta love what was done. Too bad Lady Gaga didn't show up. Damn, that would've been awesome!!!. *sarcasm (just to be sure everyone understands it lulz)
Waiting on the Bluray dude, waiting on the bluray.
HR, i think you were a relative of mine in a previous life time bro....LOL...
I ll end up picking this cherry up, even though im not a megadeth fan....
When this tour happends next year in the US, and again it will happen, still think soulfly would be a great opening act...
2011 US Big 4 stadium tour summer
HR, i wish, but i was being realistic..as you know andres kisser still has that stick up his azz from 1996, and hasnt buried the hatchet, so we all have to suffer as fans and diehard sepultura supporters...
Ive seen video of max doing overseas large festivals over the years but never a large one here in the states....this tour would be the proper platform....soulfy shows are always high energy...HR on the real, i still think 1 day that reunion will happen, but it on andres.....
ya, i know brother....i would sure hope so as well...you KNOW!!
but fvckin d!ck kisser has proved to be a real stubborn self absorbed sh!t headed mule thus far, anyway
i don't see him changing until his shoddy (POACHED from the brothas) version of 'tura hits finacial rock bottom....then that snivelling cvnt will come grovelling back
them bros cav should just TAKE back what's rightfully theirs...PLENTY of wiiling, able, and grateful g-fiddle players out there to render d!ck ksiser's gutter 'claim' null and VOID
31&32 says 'U MUST ADMIT THEY HAVE THE MOST TALENT, BEST FRONT MAN AND ACOUSTIC GUITARIST EVER, BEST DRUMMER, BEST ELECTRIC GUITARIST, AND HAD THE BEST BASSIST TIL HE DIED, BUT ROB IS INCREDIBLE TOO'
Just so I'm sure: Are we saying that Lars is the best drummer? I have no idea what 'best' means in this context but, in any context Lars is not bad, does what he needs to do but in no way the 'best'. I'd say the other three drummers from the big four alone would have better drumming ability to Lars. And if you consider drummers from other bands then Lars doesn't even have a chance.
If you don't get the drift, Metallica do what they do but in no way are they more superior to any other band as far as singing, playing ability or stage presence goes. They have released albums which are popular to a wide spread audience and you would probably find that fans at a metallica gig may not necessarily be into metal but just into Metallica.
Dont let the Metalli-sheep know that, you may upset them!!!! Hahahahhaa, let the fanboys begin the flaming! You are very correct about them not being superior to other bands out there in the different aspects of the music. But the blind fanboy sheeple just cant accept the truth about their metalli-turds declining careers!
I'm with most of ya on 99 percent of your points but I have to wonder if caps lock metallica fanboy might have a small point. I think the driving force for this reunion for Megadave (and maybe others) was the potential bottom line. Not disparraging making a living, but Metallica makes alot more money touring than the other 3 bands. Dave wouldn't have swallowed his pride if the potential money wasn't as huge as he thought he could get. He was selling his pride. Lars and James are the same way. I don't get the feeling any of em woulda been there except Slayer if it wasn't for the huge payday. I agree with Branded and his characterization of Metallica and their motives tho!
I'd pay some serious cash to see that lineup RTB!
Umm saw the show theatre thing and was impressed. Not been a huge fan of Metallica since Cliff's idea's yadadda yadda have been out of their music but they were solid. What's with James Hetfield he makes some weird faces and yes I LOL'd at them.
Stadium that size having that many fans for Anthrax = WOW
Megadeth = NORM
Slayer = NORM
Metallica = NORM
I did see the show in theaters and I thought it was a great idea as well......Anthrax was really good , Joey is still Anthrax i dont care what anybody says, his voice is a little weaker but what do you expect . The whole surprise of the show for me was Megadeth, even though Dave's voice was shot, the band sounded awesome...Slayer, which is my favorite, played good, Tom recovering from back surgery looked great physically and sounded great as usual in concert...Metallica of course trying to steal the show with all the theatrics and pyro, sad thing is that they need that to be the show, Anthrax , Megadeth , and Slayer just came out and thrashed as usual. No staged b.s. to make the show all about them...Metallica stay mainstream, I will continue to enjoy my thrash the way it originated.
good points about the fan thing (filling up when metallica came out) however everyone who has megadeth/metallica beef all need to smoke a joint and relax it was a loooong time ago, also of cousre your gonna go the way of the big money, these people have families what better way to give their children a good education and good start in life than to make as much money as possible, hell if i had the chance to sell-out i would to support my family to the maximum... i love megadeth, metallica, slayer, anthrax, all of em theyre amazing
I'd illegially download it just to p**s Lars off :-)
Hang on! Isn't this supposed to be 'THE BIG 4', not a Metallica DVD that just happens to include 3 'other' acts??? It smells like a big Metallica retirement fundraiser to me.
Sorry...I used to like Metallica, but I have lost respect for them as they are trying so desperately to be 'hard' when really they lost their 'metal edge' when Load was released. A hard rock band they are nowadays, but a metal band they haven't been for years!
You can download this right now from the usual sites. Just watched it and it kicks ass, Anthrax plays great even if their songs are a little dull, they have the spirit. Megadeth rules but Mustaine´s voice is not what it used to be, Slayer are on top of their game but Hanneman should exercise a little, he´s a fat pig now and Mr. King looks ridiculous with all the chains, spikes, tattoos and Metallica are the same as always, sh**ty setlist and sentimental sh**. Am i evil will make your blood pump faster even if you don´t like the song, shame that only Lombardo represents Slayer. Overall it´s all great to see them together but i hate metallica having more time than the others onstage.
