Metallica Footage From Antarctica Show Available

Photo of Metallica

Band Photo: Metallica (?)

Metallica recently played a live show in Antarctica, and photos from the set can be found at the band's Facebook profile here. An hour and a half long video from the show is available below. Metallica comments:

"This was the most unique show Metallica has ever done. The band, contest winners, research station scientists (from Russia, South Korea, China, Poland, Chile, Brazil and Germany), and the ship crew, all crammed in this little dome out on the helipad of Carlini Station in ANTARCTICA!

"The energy in the little dome was amazing! Words can not describe how happy everyone was. The band cranked out 10 songs for the small crowd including Creeping Death, For Whom the Bell Tolls, Sad But True, Welcome Home (Sanitarium), Master of Puppets, One, Blackened, Nothing Else Matters, Enter Sandman, and Seek & Destroy.

"No word on if there were any penguins were attendance."

This reminds me of the first episode of metalocalypse where they had a concert near the artic circle. Metallica just cracks me up with how rediculous they are now.

^It's even funnier when you remember that two members of Metallica did voice work for that episode.

On some other forums, I've seen people lambasting them for this. "oh, metallica are a bunch of hacks, look at this next publicity stunt", etc. etc.

Come on. These guys are world famous and literally worth tens of million collectively/each. You know how this conversation probably went? "Hey guys..you know what'd be awesome? Let's play in f***in Antarctica!" "Hell yeah!"

If you were rich and famous and could do whatever, wouldn't you eventually do something like this? Complain about their music, whatever you want, but I see people complain about LITERALLY everything these guys do. It's getting ridiculous.

^but not nearly as ridiculous as rationalizing and justifying on these chumps behalf...no?

Besides, just think of the poor penguins....haplessly having borne witness to this fvcking junkshow's tactless intrusion onto their frozen and barren wastes, their innocent fuzzy bird brains are hopelessly corrupted for fvcking ever

^ Ha! Hate it when that happens... It's like getting c***blocked by Ron Jeremy. LMAO

Don't worry about the penguins... They inserted their earbuds, cranked out some Murmaider, and dove underwater.

Thanks for the video DJ (the former, definitely not the latter). Great quality for 1985. If I weren't 4, I'd have been there trying to break my neck with the rest of those fvckers.
