Metallica kicks off world tour tonight. Who knew dads could still be metal?

All kidding aside, the (dad’s) of Metallica have proven their staying power and career longevity time and time again. Tonight they kicked off their WorldWired 2017 North American tour in support of their newest album Hardwired… To Self Destruct in Baltimore, MD.

After a few mis-steps post Black Album, we were throughly enjoyed the latest album. Rather than trying to match the speed and ferocity of their younger contemporaries, they slid into form, embraced their ‘vintage’ nomenclature and put together a mature, focused, album that shreds heavily and leans just enough on their past while embracing their future to create a new sound.

It is this sound and re-galvanized attitude that is on display this tour… and allows them to remain in the hearts of their fans.
