April 24, 2011

Well, the Big Four show -- featuring metal titans Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, and Anthrax -- finally arrived in the U.S for a one-off show. The weekend after Coachella, a small nation of metalheads descended upon the Empire Polo Grounds in Indio for an outdoor music festival with way fewer hippie girls and way more skull tattoos. Photographer Richard Haick was on hand to capture some of the mania, and he sent us these photos. For more, see our full slideshow from the Big 4 concert.

Despite twenty years of the "Biz" trying to destroy honest, working class heavy metal, these guys have kept the flame burning in Amerika.We're now at the dawn of a New Age of Heavy Metal!This summer, it's going to burn HOT!!!
