I would be a vampire, because they’re stealth, lurk in the shadows, and appear and disappear. There’s also a goth element to vampires that I really like, which doesn’t exist in werewolves, the Frankenstein monster or the mummy. James [Hetfield] would probably enjoy being a Frankenstein monster…but then again maybe not! Rob [Trujillo] would definitely be a werewolf, because he’s already halfway there in appearance.
Metallica have announced an early Christmas present for their fans — a two-disc DVD featuring a combination of their two 2009 World Magnetic concerts from Quebec City. It's scheduled to be released in December.
Metallica closed out the second night of their Orion Music + More festival with a performance of their self-titled 1991 album, better known to most as the "Black Album." You can now watch footage of the band performing "My Friend of Misery" from the festival below.
When Metallica announced their first-ever music festival, it's safe to say there was a healthy dose of skepticism from fans and press alike when they discovered the line-up was far from metal-centric. Boasting a two-day schedule that included indie rock, comedians, metal bands of all stripes, alternative rock, blues and even a brass ensemble, many balked at the band's attempt to bring a "European style" festival to the States.
