Anthrax, Slayer And Mastodon, Live in Anaheim
Venue: House Of Blues, Anaheim
Anthrax, Slayer and Mastodon members go for metal glory
Until this evening, the biggest news coming out of Disneyland this week has been the vacation-ruining measles outbreak that has cast an itchy, eye-watering pall over the Happiest Place On Earth. Tonight the mayhem rises exponentially as a platoon of legends descends on the House Of Blues – tucked deep in the heart of downtown Disney – for another riotous all-star jam.
Formerly billed as the Metal Masters series of clinics and concerts, the metal collective have rebranded as the Metal Allegiance, boasting largely the same lineup: Frank Bello, Charlie Benante and Scott Ian (Anthrax), Chuck Billy and Alex Skolnick (Testament), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Chris Broderick (ex-Megadeth), Gary Holt (Slayer), Rex Brown (Pantera, Kill Devil Hill) and Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs).
Tonight features the inaugural appearances of Andreas Kisser (Sepultura), Mark Osegueda (Death Angel), John Tempesta (The Cult) and Troy Sanders (Mastodon).
