Headline set from Metallica, recorded by me on the second day of the Download Festival.

Taper notes:

I positioned myself practically underneath one of the speaker stacks, so the sound is very clear, yet you also get some the atmosphere from the crowd too.

The weather over the first couple of days at Download was shit, windy and raining, but this recording came out very good all things considering and the weather seemed to be better once Metallica came onstage. This was the first time I'd seen Metallica since the Monsters of Rock at Donington in 1991 and I was really impressed with how good they still are. It was also great to hear the black album in its entirity too.
