In their early days, Metallica were the epitome of a band on top of their game. From Kill ’Em All in 1983 through The Black Album in 1991, Metallica were matched by few, if any, bands in the heavy metal genre. Every album was highly anticipated as the Bay area thrashers did things their own way and expanded the boundaries of the genre.
The Four Horsemen: The Ultimate Metallica Tribute Act focus on that special era, what they like to call the “Back & Black Days.” They do a great job recreating the look and feel of a Metallica show the way you would have seen it back in the ’80s, in a more intimate setting. It’s all killer and no filler when The Four Horsemen come to town as they burn though hits like “Seek and Destroy,” “Fade To Black,” “Master of Puppets,” “One,” and “Enter Sandman” with unmatched energy. They might even throw in a song or two from the $5.98 EP, Garage Days Re-Revisited, for good measure.
Appearing Jan. 19 at The Clyde, The Four Horsemen give you a throwback experience playing the songs you know and love from one of the top metal bands of all time. — Chris Hupe
