Metallica: Sound Matters to Artists

In this new video, Metallica frontman James Hetfield finds a few moments during the epic WorldWired Tour to talk about how a continuing partnership with Meyer Sound helps directly connect the band’s music to audiences. Intermixed with tour concert footage, Hetfield talks about visiting the “mad scientists of sound” in Berkeley and says of the tour’s LEO Family system, “Yes, it’s loud, but it’s extremely clear. You can hear every nuance…”

FOH engineer “Big Mick” Hughes, who has forged Metallica’s concert sound for more than three decades, adds: “I’ve been to many other speaker manufacturers over the years and there is nobody like Meyer...nobody.”
