All of us, every single man, woman, and child on the face of the Earth were born with the same unalienable rights; to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And, if the governments of the world can't get that through their thick skulls, then, regime change will be necessary.

Music for the Final Crusade
Metallica and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra
That is way cooler than I would have expected.
Thanks for posting that.
Get yourself the album if you can. It is amazing. Metallica S&M. What the orchestra did with the heavy metal will give you chills. . .
Out of curiosity and a bit OT, is anyone here "into" HiFi? :)
Scorpions with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, live: Hurricane 2000.
Manowar with a 200-piece combined choir and orchestra, live: Battle Hymn.
Sorry Abu but in my opinion all these bands had "lot it" long before they went Symphonic and artyfarty.
I managed to see Metallica six times in the early 80,s, including Monsters at Donington Park 85 I was on the train from Gothernberg to Copenhagen to see them for the sixth time when I got the news that Cliff had been killed. The Sixth and last time I saw them was in Copenhagen about a year later.
The first three albums where total mind fuck, after that only pulp with the occasional gem.
Even today Whiplash gets my head shaking like a maniac
The same with the scorpions, the first four albums where great, then same thing a decline into AOR
The last time I saw the Scorpion was at The Wall concert in Berlin.
Manowar I saw only once in Copenhagen, all I can say it was a great show, but I never really got into them, as I was more into German metal
It is strange that most bands lose it after their third or forth album
Who should give the grand grand daddy of heavy metal a listen, Richard Wagner.
Or you can try some Carl Orf
I used to as many concerts as possible, and to be truthful, it is the music that I miss most about Europe. Especially Copenhagen, where you cold always go into Christiana and enjoy a few bongs and a good meal before the show.
