Research Blog Antarctica #129 – Freeze ‘Em All

Freeze ‘Em All is a concert given by Metallica at the Argentinean Carlini base on 8.12.2013. It’s part of an attempt to make a record by playing a gig on all seven continents within a year.

I’m an Antarctic geek and I like metal, but this doesn’t do much for me. The bludgeoning Metallica sound doesn’t really seem to be in any dialogue with the Antarctic environment, and the Cocal-Cola-related branding creates distance between the viewer and the show.
