What an unbelievable and memorable show I attended last Saturday night at the House of Blues in Cleveland. The Four Horsemen, considered the ultimate tribute band to Metallica, headlined an evening which consisted of Meccadeth (Megadeth) and Maiden Voyage (Iron Maiden) as the openers. A whole evening full of thrash classics I grew up on.
Metallica, being the peak of bands I throughly look up to, The Four Horsemen brought something truly special that only a hardcore Metallica fan would truly appreciate and understand. Delivering a classic presence of what Metallica displayed back in their 80s and 90s heyday. All the energy and sound that fans remembered from days past when they were on top of the world. Sean Perry, the lead vocalist, demonstrated an authentic vintage James Hetfield. The voice, growls, oh, and the "yeeeaahs" were mirror-like chilling to listen to. Even his stage stance and mannerisms were spot on adding to the experience. Everything was kept pretty much old school for these guys. Nothing played later than the "Black" album era, which true metal heads would appreciate.
Check out The Four Horsemen's "Creeping Death" at the HOB from Dante Steel.
