Review: Heavy Metal's Best Ignite Seattle Crowd On METALLICA's SUMMER SANITARIUM Tour

August 8, 2003

Tina Potterf of Seattle Times is reporting that METALLICA, the elder statesmen of metal, assembled an untouchable lineup of acts for their Summer Sanitarium appearance at Settle's Seahawks Stadium Thursday (August 7): MUDVAYNE and the DEFTONES, LINKIN PARK and LIMP BIZKIT.

"The real heavyweights of the evening demonstrated why they are as vital as ever. While many bands would have peaked by now, METALLICA continues to shape a scene it pioneered some 20 years ago.

" 'Now your friends in METALLICA are here to take you to a whole other level,' frontman James Hetfield told the swelling crowd.

"The band wasted no time giving the fans what they wanted: classic METALLICA.

"The band has never sounded better: the blazing finger-work of guitarist Kirk Hammett fit seamlessly with the frenetic energy released by drummer Lars Ulrich. Hetfield's distinctive voice, which moves from sinister to sorrowful without losing pitch, still packs a punch. The band's latest addition, bassist Robert Trujillo (SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, OZZY OSBOURNE),who replaced Jason Newsted, is a natural fit." Read more.
