Metallica's latest dvd QUEBEC MAGNETIC is a killer. I'm genuinely surprised. Recorded in Quebec City in 2009 during the Death Magnetic tour, the re-engergized Metallica blaze through the new Death Magnetic songs and play the old old stuff like it matters. There were times in the past when it seemed like they were going through the motions.
The Quebec City crowd is insane, not just for responding on Hetfield's cue but for being on their feet, roaring throughout the songs. This type of gonzo fan participation is rare in North America.
Recorded on the Halloween weekend, one of the real treats is when the band wears demented zombie and clown masks for "Seek & Destroy". One of the best live albums on dvd ? this year...if anybody cares about live dvds anymore.
This weekend 97.7 HTZ-FM is cranking Quebec Magnetic on the radio along with other Metallica classics and deep cutz.
Here's a taste:
