Recorded live on April 21-22, 1999 at the Berkeley Community Theatre, this is a rare performance by the iconic heavy metal group Metallica with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra conducted by Michael Kamen. Bass guitarist Cliff Burton's love of classical music spawned the idea for this performance and can be heard in songs from Metallica's Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets albums.
Never resting, never ceasing to innovate or amaze, Metallica presents this extraordinary document of their concert with the San Francisco Symphony. Metallica's select favorites unfold like never before with the eloquent backing of The San Francisco Symphony. Metallica has never sounded more powerful or dramatic.
Metallica is easily one of the best, most influential heavy metal band of the '80s. Responsible for bringing the genre back to Earth, the bandmates looked and talked like they were from the street, shunning the usual rockstar games of metal musicians during the early '80s. They expanded the limits of thrash, using speed and volume not for their own sake, but to enhance their intricately structured compositions.
