Right from the start, when Anthrax hit the stage for its very early 4 p.m. slot, the collective goal of artists and audience alike seemed to be to peel the paint off the walls with violent volume and loosen the bolts that held the joint together, with the bounce of dance moves.

Of the opening three acts before Metallica took the stage at 9 p.m., Anthrax was the outfit that owned The Bronx.
Over the course of an hour, the quintet wowed the fans with cornerstones of their songbook such as “Indians,” “Thrashing Mad” and “I Am The Law.”

Megadeth was the second band to play and was the least successful act on the bill. Lead singer Dave Mustaine told the house he had just had neck surgery earlier in the week, adding “I shouldn’t even be here.” He was right.

Slayer was the heaviest band on the bill. Their set was pure brute force. The shred guitar solos were impossibly fast, and the drumming made thunder sound tame…[NY Post]

And we already talked about what Metallica played as well as the Motorhead cover that brouht all the bands back to the stage. We also saw pictures of the Rocks Off boat cruise that brought a few hundred fans up to the Bronx on Wednesday (9/14). Now here are the pictures from the first three bands that played the ‘Big 4′ show (Metallica pics HERE). They continue below…
