Thrash metal legends Anthrax, Megadeth, Slayer, and Metallica teamed up to form the "Big Four" for a couple of concerts in 2010. In Sofia, Bulgaria on June 22nd of that year, the Big Four played one of the most significant metal concerts ever, which was later broadcast to over 800 theaters across the world and released as a critically acclaimed DVD/Blu-ray. But while the show was an astounding success, it turns out that Anthrax was actually experiencing quite a few technical issues. In a recent interview with, Anthrax's guitarist Rob Caggiano discussed some of the problems the group experienced during that momentous performance: "It was a hard show for us because we had a lot of sound problems, monitor problems. The stage sound was definitely screwed up and my amp was making all kinds of noises. I think Charlie had some monitor issues as well. It was a weird show for us." "But when we walked back to the dressing room we were all a little bummed out because it sounded so weird on stage and then the guy that recorded it from Metallica's camp came into our dressing room and was going to show us the footage, you know, because we had to approve it because it was going to be broadcast in the movie theatres that day! So we watched it and it actually sounded really good. Couldn't believe it was the same show!" Although the show sounds like it didn't run as smoothly as planned, Caggiano still seemed to love the experience: "My favorite moment of [the Big Four] was the Bulgaria show and we all got up on stage with Metallica to do "Am I Evil?" for the first time. That quite possibly is the most fun I ever had in my life!.. just to be up on stage with Metallica and Megadeth and Slayer at the same time is like... talk about a dream!"
