Epic concert
31 December 2014 | by 4-KaneSee all my reviews

To date, The Big 4 has to be the most epic concert DVD I have ever seen. It brings four thrash metal bands together for an epic metal concert show: Anthrax, Megadeth, Metallica, and Slayer. Each group stands on their own as they take their turns on the stage to perform in front of a huge audience in Sofia, Bulgaria.

Joey Belladonna shines through as he sings Anthrax classics such as "Caught In A Mosh," "I Am The Law," "Medusa," and the John Bush-era "Only." Like Anthrax, the other bands made impressive performances in this concert, too. Slayer, in particular, delivers the goods with songs like "Angel of Death," "South of Heaven," "Raining Blood," and "World Painted Blood." Of all the highlights on this DVD, none are more significant than the bands (albeit minus Slayer's Tom Araya, Jeff Hanneman, and Kerry King) joining together on stage to perform to the Diamond Head song "Am I Evil?"

Awesome concert DVD - and one that no metal-head should be without!
