    The "Big Four" --Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax-- shared a stage together for the very first time on June 22, 2010, in Sofia, Bulgaria and it was the moment their fans had waited decades for. The monumental show was beamed live into over 1000 theatres worldwide via satellite in a special HD cinematic event. In case you are not a raging metal fan, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Anthrax are the "Big Four" of thrash metal and there were a pissed off a lot of domestic metal fans who weren't able to take a few days to travel to Bulgaria to see this show.

    However, fans can "live" the show like they were there in the flesh beginning tomorrow, when The Big Four Live From Sofia hits DVD retailers. The Big Four Live From Sofia includes full shows from all four bands on a two-disc set as well as behind the scenes and interview footage. Bring it on.

    In addition to the two DVD set and the corresponding Blu-Ray, there will be a limited edition "Super Deluxe" Box Set, including the dual DVD set, five CD's with all five hours of music, a 24 page booklet, a two-sided poster, photos of each band, and a collectible "Big Four" guitar pick. This is the absolute best present you can get for the metalhead in your life.

    But first, a little history lesson for those in need: these four acts broke out of the underground thrash movement in the 1980's to dominate the metal world, selling millions of records and packing arenas across the globe. Despite huge demand, these musical giants had never shared the same stage, until Sonisphere, where they played seven dates together across Europe. The instantly legendary June 22, 2010, concert from the tour's stop of the Sonisphere Festival in Sofia, Bulgaria aired the same day in 79 movie theaters in the UK, over 450 theaters in over 140 markets in the US, as well as being beamed into theaters in Europe, Canada, Latin America, Australia, South Africa and New Zealand.

    Lars Ulrich of Metallica said of this historic show: "Who would have thought that more than 25 years after its inception, thrash metal's 'Big Four' would not only still be around, be more popular than ever, playing shows together at stadiums all over Europe, and on top of that, coming to a movie theater near you in High Definition (for better or worse??!!). Bring it on!"

    Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian said: "Damn, as if this 'Big Four' tour wasn't exciting enough now we get to be on the big screen worldwide! Metal at the movies, two big horns up! It is unbelievably gratifying that this means so much to the metal community around the globe. Get your tix, grab some popcorn and get ready to bang your head!"

    Declared Slayer's Kerry King: "I can't believe someone didn't make this happen 15 years ago! The fans finally get what they want. I think it's awesome!"

    Said Megadeth's Dave Mustaine, "The magnitude of this event hasn't really sunk in yet, and I am thrilled to know that people around the planet will be able to walk into a movie theatre and experience the greatest line up of Heavy Metal in the history of the world!"
