Here we grow again.
Check out this amazing lineup and mega jam session.
The Masters are heading back to the West Coast!
Philip Anselmo (Pantera, Down), Kerry King and Gary Holt (Slayer), Charlie Benante and Frank Bello (Anthrax), David Ellefson and Chris Broderick (Megadeth), Billy Sheehan and Mike Portnoy (The Winery Dogs), and now Rex Brown (Pantera, Kill Devil Hill) are headed to California for the biggest Metal Masters event to date!
“‘Metal Masters’ started out as two bassists 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 techniques of the trade. ‘Metal Masters’ has always been about doing something special for the fans and that will never go away.”
“The reason I still do it to this day is to get Phil [ Anselmo] involved, because I think the world misses. him. He’s good at what he does & everybody wants to see Phil. Everybody loves Phil. When I come out, it’s a huge applause. When Phil comes out, it’s like somebody came back from the dead; they’re not expecting it.”
If the still circulating buzz from “Metal Masters 4” is any indication, “Metal Masters 5” will not disappoint. “Metal Masters 4” marked the clinic’s return to New York City where it played before a sold-out crowd at the Gramercy Theater. The evening featured musical clinics by Frank Bello, Scott Ian, Billy Sheehan, Charlie Benante and an opening set by PHILM featuring Dave Lombardo.
The concert finale that night was one for the ages featuring metal classics such as ANTHRAX’s “Room For One More”, PANTERA’s “Mouth For War” and “5 Minutes Alone” as well as SLAYER’s “Chemical Warfare”, to name a few. The 13-song set let the crowd know they had just witnessed a once-in-a-lifetime moment.
