The date and current line-up for Metal Masters 5 has been revealed!
Metal Masters 5 will take place in Anaheim, California on January 22 at the House of Blues. The initial roster of metal all-stars includes Philip Anselmo (Pantera/Down), Kerry King (Slayer), Gary Holt (Slayer/Exodus), Charlie Benante (Anthrax), Frank Bello (Anthrax), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Chris Broderick (Megadeth), Billy Sheehan (Winery Dogs), Mike Portnoy (Winery Dogs) and newly added master Rex Brown (Pantera/Kill Devil Hill).
As far as the nature of the event, Samson’s Mark Menghi had the following to say about it:
“Metal Masters started out as two bassists teaching a clinic and has gone on to become a spectacle that includes some of the greatest musicians that defined a genre. What better way to learn, than seeing these amazing performers up close and personal teaching their own personal techniques of the trade. Metal Masters has always been about doing something special for the fans and that will never go away.”
