There have been some rough patches here and there, but make no mistake—Metallica still is the best metal band that ever was or will be. On Wednesday, May 10, at the home of the Baltimore Ravens, the most successful band in the history of the genre gave a fiery, powerful performance that almost certainly erased any doubts among the tens of thousands of people who filled the stadium.

That this was the first stop on the North American leg of the band’s “WorldWired” tour made the anticipation climb even higher.

Before we even got to Metallica there were two opening acts capable of drawing several thousand fans on their own. (more…)
