30 Years of Metallica

Metallica may be 30, but at 31,Thrasher's got one on 'em. Four shows at the Fillmore, and at 50-years-old, they rocked for two and a half hours. It was insane: "Unforgiven," "Battery," "Creeping Death," all the hammers. Special guests included Marianne Faithfull, Lou Reed, and Kid Rock (sucks). The shit hit the fan at the end when they brought out Mercyful Fate. Eighteen years since they've been on stage together. They did a melody of "Gypsy", "Into the Coven" and  "Curse of the Pharaohs," all with Metallica on stage. Five Flying Vs on stage add up to one awesome night. Here's to 30 more. The best way for Thrasher to end one epic year.

740TH1213PC1.jpgIn This Issue
Be careful opening the July 2015 issue because this Vans Propeller-themed beast might just cut your damn fingers off. Featuring interviews with Zorilla, AVE, Rowley, Caples, Pedro, Dollin, Dill, Chima, Trujillo, K-Walks and more, you're probably going to need a crowbar to pry the damn smile off your face when you're done reading this one. In addition, the Visualtraveling crew rides the edge of Arabia, Cab talks classic covers, Neckface celebrates a decade-long party with the mag and Daan Van Der Linden gets the Lunatic Fringe treatment (you're gonna wanna remember that name). There's not going to be any space left on your bedroom walls after you rip the good photos out of this issue. Tell mom to buy more thumbtacks.
Add this one to your collection.
