‘The Ultimate Metallica Show’ Recap: End of the Year Playlist Curated By You
By now, I know I'm not the first person to say it, but I still have to: Happy New Year.
2022 was a pretty special year to be a Metallica fan and there's no question that 2023 is going to be even more memorable. And since the latest edition of The Ultimate Metallica Show landed on the weekend that split '22 and '23, I figured we should make it as memorable as possible, too.
To do that, I turned to you.
I put out a call for you to help curate this special New Year playlist and you did not disappoint. We received requests from all over the country and a couple from our Ultimate Metallica radio family, too. I even dedicated one of the tracks to my young daughter who has become obsessed with "Lux Æterna."
If you missed it, don't worry, you can catch it on the Ultimate Metallica stream, and you can check out the full playlist and recap below, too.
