Still groundbreaking after three decades, metal titans Metallica have officially set the world record by performing on each of the seven continents within a single year.
The record was rounded up on December 8 following the band's Antarctica show under a Carlini Argentine Base dome. Sponsored by Coca-Cola Zero, the concert was attended by a group of lucky cruise ticket winners from around the globe.
Speaking of which, pro-shot footage of the entire gig recently surfaced and is available for streaming. The band had charged through a total of 10 classic tunes, as the fans listened through headphones merely a few feet away from the four-piece.
"Not only has Metallica actually played all seven continents now - we've played all seven continents in 2013," drummer Lars Ulrich explained. "The perverse beauty of this - it's so far out there - a year and a half ago when my son came home from a gig in a place called Treasure Island in San Francisco, he was talking that he'd been to a silent rave and he was trying to explain what it [looks like when] 500 people [are] dancing with headphones on and you can hear a pin drop in there."
The band previously unveiled a set of photos and the concert's full setlist, describing the experience as "the most unique show Metallica has ever done." More details here, make sure to check out the clips below and share your thoughts in the comments.
