They’ve done it, folks.
Metallica have set a new world record by becoming the first and only band in history to perform concerts on all seven continents in under a year.
The record was set with their Antarctica gig over the weekend.
The band played 10 songs for contest winners, research station scientists (from Russia, South Korea, China, Poland, Chile, Brazil and Germany), and the crew of a ship.
The set went down in this little dome out on the helipad of Carlini Station.
“The energy in the little dome was amazing! Words cannot describe how happy everyone was,” says the band.
Now if only they could release an album that wasn’t a half-assed attempt at a return to their glory days, I’d be happy.
