SEPULTURA to Play with METALLICA
Posted: March 09, 2012
Legendary Brazilian/American thrashers, SEPULTURA, have officially been confirmed for the Orion Music Fest alongside headliners METALLICA! “We are very happy and honored to be a part of such an amazing festival,” commented guitarist Andreas Kisser. “Especially a festival that is bringing all the European tradition to the States. METALLICA is showing why they are the biggest band in the world, once again they are the pioneers, the inspiration and motivation to keep metal alive and strong. We feel great to be a part of this challenge and I feel this will be an historical event, one of many more to come. See you all there metalheads!” Set for June 23rd and 24th in the seaside New Jersey town of Atlantic City, the event will feature headlining sets from METALLICA each evening, during which they will perform two of their most enduring albums in their entirety: their 1991 eponymous fifth release ("The Black Album") one night and 1984's Ride the Lightning the other.
