Preview Revolver’s Big Four Trading Cards!

Unless you’ve been living under a boulder, you know that the Big Four of thrash—Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth, and Anthrax—are playing Yankee Stadium in New York City on Wednesday, September 14. It’s only the second time these four metal colossuses have shared a stage in the United States.

Since nobody knows whether we’ll get another chance to see them onstage again, Revolver and Guitar World are celebrating the event with the Big Four Weeks. For the next month or so, leading up to the show, our websites will be giving fans eye-popping exclusives, previously unseen backstage video, excerpts from our interviews with the bands—including those in Revolver’s special issue devoted to the Big Four, which you can buy right here—and much, much more.

To kick things off, Revolver is presenting a first look at the Big Four trading cards we’re including in newsstand editions of our September/October issue, which you can buy right here right now and will be available everywhere else on Tuesday, August 16. We’ve modeled the cards after the Topps baseball cards in 1986—the year that three of the bands released their masterpieces—and the backs feature vital stats, selected discographies, and fun facts sponsored by our friends at Samson, Zoom, and Hartke.

We hope you enjoy them and check back regularly for more cool Big Four–related coverage!

    I am a magazine subscriber and I don’t understand why I didn’t get any trading cards with this month’s magazine  just recieved in the mail?!

  • Krissheepdog4

    I think that loyal subscribers should be entitled to get the trading cards with their mags too!!!

  • Crimson

    Where are my trading cards Revolver???

  • 40watt

    Thanks for not giving the subscribers these nifty trading cards…I’ll be canceling my subscription shortly…jerks.

  • Phat Pat

    Got to say I agree with my fellow readers.  I have been a loyal subscriber for many years & don’t receive the awesome Big Four cards.  Not mad enough to end my sub (I mean where else am I supposed to read about METAL?….Kerrang? I don’t f*`king think so!) just want to have dead tree with METAL legends printed upon it’s flesh.  Is that too much to ask?

  • Jackassosaurus

    Pretty sad when your a  loyal subscriber and you can’t get the cards. Customer service is taking a back seat these days it seems

  • ghostrydr

    hey im a loyal subscriber also and this im furious about !!!!! you would think being a loyal subscriber you would get first crack at the cards but no…. once again the big guy f#*ks over the little guy,……. again !!! its not bad enough when i get my revolver mag every two months out of my mailbox its bent up & all disheveled looking!!! I think somthing should be done about this as do many of your LOYAL subscribers as it appears im not alone in this reasonable request?????

    i’m so glad my subscription is now over… fuck you if you think i’m gonna buy a newstand issue in addition  to the one i just got in the mail today for some fucking baseball cards… you guys have done this shit a few times now with different extras (like the Dimebag Darrell coin) and it is fucking lame. In fact the cover of the issue i got today says “big 4 cards inside”…

    Not to sound like a broken record but I have been a subscriber for damn near 10 years and this is how you treat loyalty? Guess I’m supposed to go throw down $5 for another issue, well, think again. No cards for me, I guess. You are making me question my subscription, Revolver.

    I had the EXACT reaction when I got the mag in the mail.  “Did someone steal my cards?  Did they fall out?  It says free inside.”  I was thinking about cancelling anyway – this made my decision easier.  Bad move Revolver.  Listen to your readers.

    Hell has officially frozen over. I remember when Slayer stated that they would never do music videos. Now they’re doing trading cards? Lame. Definitely not METAL.

      Revolver cashing in on the big four. It has nothing to do with the bands.

    • you are retarded

      Slayer has been on trading cards for YEARS.

    All u Whiney Fucks, Get off the gas. First, a magazine to what, learn some tabs or juicy gossip? There is NO FUCKIN GOSSIP in METAL. Learn your own music or no creativity? WOW loosers.. SLAYER will do whatever they fuckin want!!!!!! If you don’t get it by now, go listen to Stryper or Petra U FUCKIN POSERS!!!!      ?????CARDS??????? Really, what do u want next?  Action figures? Yeah, Right.  Be glad that they still KILL it for us.  And If U Don’t Like It, FUCK OFF!!!! 

    • Ben52192

      you sound very intelligent

      • http://www.facebook.com/rees426 Robert E Stack

        Intelligence is not required for music. Just open up and release! Is that your B-day Ben? 5-21-92. See intelligence working there. I think you should research the scene back in 83-87. Slayer was on Z-ROCK and private stations. If you didn’t listen to that genre of music, you weren’t exposed to it. No internet, just HEADBANGERS BALL. So, my coment stands as it is, U NO LIKEY,   FUK OHF!

        • Scarmiglione

          You are right, intelligence is not required for music. It is however, required for the Internet, and as a user of the Internet, you must be intelligent, or else you will invoke the trolls and get burned quite badly. The Internet may not have been publicly accessible back in 1985, but it certainly is now, and you need to learn how to adapt to this change and deal with it.

          And please, you sound like a fucking wigger. Do us all a favor, go hire an English tutor, lay off the Heathen and Dark Angel, exercise at least 60 minutes a day, eat your veggies, play some Touhou 11, and come back to the Internet when you’re actually smart enough.

        Um, Trading Cards of Rock and Metal have been out since the early Seventies… So, uhhhh… You’re a little ridonkulous…

    Dear Revolver.I’ve been a subscriber for a # of yrs. I would like to know how to get the 18 card set of the Big Four. I haven’t received them in any issue. Please respond. Thanx.

    ’86 Topps. Cool idea. The back looks like shit but I can’t imagine competent design work comes free enough for a print periodical. 2/5
