Boasting a lineup of brilliant musicians, the 11 legendary players tore through 22 songs for a captivated Anaheim, Calif., audience. If you were unable to check out Metal Masters 5 in person, no worries! We've got some fan-filmed footage to share with you here.
Members of Pantera, Slayer, Down, Megadeth, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, the Winery Dogs + more were all featured performers at MM5, jamming classics such as Slayer's 'Angel of Death,' Iron Maiden's 'Wrathchild' and Pantera's 'F---ing Hostile,' the last of which featured all 11 featured players.
“Metal Masters started out as two bassists [Anthrax's Frank Bello + Megadeth's David Ellefson] teaching a clinic and has gone on to become a spectacle that includes some of the greatest musicians that defined a genre” says Samson’s Director of Marketing and Metal Masters founder, Mark Menghi. “What better way to learn, than seeing these amazing performers up close and personal teaching their own personal techniques of the trade. Metal Masters has always been about doing something special for the fansand that will never go away.”
