Once upon a time, on 10th of June 2006, Metallica headlined Download Festival at Donington Park in England, UK.
On officially the hottest day of that year, the quartet from California came, saw and conquered a crowd of more than 100,000 people from all over the world. They launched into a 2½ hour set that saw them reprise “Master of Puppets” album in its entirety, alongside many of their legendary songs in an atmosphere and setting which appeared to be their natural home.
This was (and still is) one of the best concerts I have seen in my life and watching them started with the “Creeping Death” and the dozens of thousands of die-hard fans shouting “Die!! Die!!” in the air, was one of the highlights of that weekend. Thanks to users “MetConcerts100”, “ptdee” and other unnamed sources for video and audio, at last I managed to mix various parts and create a multi-cam video for the people to remember the start of that legendary evening.
