Guitar World Reveals Big Four Cover

The Big Four of thrash—Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax—are set to play New York City’s Yankee Stadium on September 14. It will be the second time ever that all four groups have shared a stage in the United States. To mark this occasion, Revolver and Guitar World are celebrating the event with the Big Four Weeks leading up to the event. For the next month or so, leading up to the show, our websites will be giving fans eye-popping exclusives (like the Big Four trading cards from the September/October issue), previously unseen backstage video, and excerpts from our interviews with the bands.

Guitar World has revealed their much anticipated November 2011 cover, featuring members of the Big Four. Check out this historic cover featuring Metallica’s James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, Anthrax’s Scott Ian, Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, and Slayer’s Kerry King, below. You can also watch a teaser video for the issue over at
