Sunday Metal – Metallica

Metallica, from 1983’s Kill ’em All tour:

Sunday Metal – Slayer

Back to more live Slayer. This claims to be the first show ever filmed, March 3, 1983 — even before “Show No Mercy” came out.

Note there’s one song about half-way through that Tom introduces as “Blitzkrieg”. Looks like they kept the song but changed the name to “Final Command”.

It’s also really strange to see Slayer playing to a dead crowd and almost empty theater. πŸ™‚

Live footage of Slayer continues, with the 1985 Hell Awaits tour:

Sunday Metal – Haggard Cat

This may not be strictly metal, but it’s loud and the video is awesome, hilarious, inspired, and shows what a little creativity can do.

Sunday Metal – Corrosion of Conformity

I’m still digging the new Corrosion of Conformity album, “No Cross No Crown”. While this is a promo video, it’s still a great song for the first single off the album “Cast the First Stone”

Sunday Metal – Crowbar

Another bit of long-form excellence.

This is Crowbar, live in Dallas, Texas on November 10, 1996.

What’s really cool about this? This is a special short-lived lineup. Not only Jimmy Bower on drums, but Jay Abenne is on lead guitar! Jay is best known for his work in Wrathchild America and Souls At Zero. He subbed in for a few months after their then-guitarist left the band.

As an extra treat? Here’s video of a practice session from 5 days before that show.

Sunday Metal – dead horse

Sometimes long-form is what you need.

dead horse. About an hour of video footage through the years: 1988 – 1994

Sunday Metal – Judas Priest

There are some songs that, when they come on, I have to turn the volume to 11.
