Calling all Metallica fans!
Since time immemorial (2013… just 2013), Malaysian Magnetic has been organizing a few tribute gigs and jam sessions around Kuala Lumpur annually. It has been a tradition for us to gather local Metallica fan boys, bands, and even bedroom players to meet up, have free jam sessions, and eventually lead up to full gigs.
Now, as a culmination of all our efforts since 2013, we are proud to present you our very own Metallica carnival that will be held right here in Malaysia. This is not just another tribute gig; it’s a gathering of Metallica fans, merchandise collectors, Metallica art fans and more.
There’s going to be a collector’s showcase (Metallica Experience), fan art display, merchandise exhibition and sales, and also a movie screening of the Metallica’s 2013 movie – “Through the Never”.
In keeping with tradition, we’ll have three of our local bands play covers of a selection of our favorite Metallica tunes, from Kill ‘Em All to their latest behemoth Hardwired… To Self Destruct. It’s gonna be one hell of a show!
This is also a collaborative effort with our neighboring Metallica family from Singapore (Singatarium chapter) and Indonesia (And Indonesia For All chapter – AIFA). So come on and enjoy the party, show your support, for we are one – a Metallica family!

Metallica Through the Never is a 2013 American IMAX thriller concert film featuring the American heavy metal band Metallica. Its title is derived from the song “Through the Never” off the band’s self-titled 1991 album. It follows a young roadie, Trip’s (Dane DeHaan) surreal misadventures intercut with concert footage shot in Vancouver and Edmonton in August 2012. It uses a unique premise of no dialogue or narration in the film’s entirety with the exception of Trip’s supervisor and the band. It was the first feature released by the revived incarnation of the Picturehouse marquee, which had been shut down since 2008.
This year, we’ll have three of our local bands rock the house and bring you timeless tunes from Metallica. Maxxxter, Ironman, and Distorted Outlaws will be covering our favorite Metallica tunes from Kill ‘Em All to the latest release Hardwired… To Self Destruct. We’ll also have our friends from Singapore and Indonesia putting up performances of their own to rile the day up. It’s gonna be one hell of a show!
Avid Metallica Collectors will be displaying their rare collectibles for viewing. Metallica enthusiasts can look (or even possibly touch) collectibles and merchandise from all over the world (yes, even stuff from the hallowed grounds of MetClub HQ, San Rafael, California)
