Watch out Orange County! 'Metal Masters 5' will be taking place at the House of Blues in Anaheim, Calif. with an all-star lineup of metal greats taking part. The event is scheduled for Jan. 22, 2014.
As with previous 'Metal Masters' shows, members of Pantera, Slayer, Anthrax and Megadeth will lead the way. Pantera are represented by frontman Philip H. Anselmo and Rex Brown. Slayer's guitarists Kerry King and Gary Holt are joining in the fun. Anthrax's Charlie Benante and Frank Bello return for another round of 'Metal Masters,' and Megadeth's David Ellefson and Chris Broderick are repeat performers as well. Rounding out the initial lineup is drummer Mike Portnoy and his current Winery Dogs cohort Billy Sheehan.
As with previous 'Metal Masters' shows, the lineup will be revolving throughout the show and there are still a few special guests that have yet to be named. But you can expect a set list representative of those taking part in the event.
