Metallica is bringing you back to perhaps the most metal concert of the last 10 years.

As part of the band’s #MetallicaMondays series, the “Enter Sandman” rockers have premiered a full stream of their performance at the 2011 Big 4 concert at New York City’s Yankee Stadium.

The stacked show featured the so-called “Big 4” of thrash metal — Metallica, Slayer, Megadeth and Anthrax — all performing on the same bill. Between 2010 and 2011, the groups played a number of Big 4 shows across Europe, as well as one at the Empire Polo Club in Indio, California — where Coachella takes place — and another in NYC.

The Yankee Stadium date, which took place on September 14, 2011, was and remains the final Big 4 performance.

You can watch Metallica’s two-hour set in its entirety streaming now on YouTube.

In modern-day Metallica happenings, the metal legends are filming a new performance to be shown in drive-in theaters, premiering August 29.
