Metallica: WorldWired Philadelphia

There’s a mystifying sensation and surge of adrenaline when you know you’re about to witness something great. When I first began to discover and listen to heavy metal as a teenager there were 3 bands that started my obsession with the genre. Black Sabbath, the founders of heavy metal, Motorhead, and Metallica. Metallica has always remained somewhere in my personal top 5 all time favorite bands. Every day on my bus ride to and from school I was listening to something from one of their first 5 (perfect) albums, Kill ‘Em All (1983), Ride the Lightning (1984), Master of Puppets (1986), …And Justice For All (1988), and Metallica/The Black Album (1991). This last Friday, May 12th, I finally saw my metal heroes live in concert.
