Metallica Maul Melbourne (As Seen From The Photo Pit)

Combining this frenzy with Metallica’s bombastic appearance on stage made for a powerful jolt to the senses. For a minute, I forgot why I was there – so overwhelmed I was by the band before me. Last time I saw them was in the 80s on the ‘And Justice For All’ tour; and now, here I was, in the pit, feeling James Hetfield’s stare cut right through me.

It proved to be an amazing array of anxiousness and raw emotion today.
