That was one great show.
High on Fire were absolutely LAME. No other word can describe it better.
Orphaned Land were amazing, even for a warm up show - I wish I knew more songs, I only knew 3 and a half of the tracklist.

Metallica was awesome as expected (mind - I'm not a "burned" fan, I just like good music, I'm "burned" on Megadeth by the way) though it had a three notable issues:
* The quota expected by the organizers (30K) was not reached (only around 22K arrived), so they moved the stage from the far end of the stadium to the side, in order to extract a more "cramped" feeling - however people who paid extra money for sits closer to the stage (i.e. not standing) were now forced to be far away from the action. Stupid and pointless.
* At few points during the beginning of the show the amplification stopped working (Ramat Gan stadium is not a good place for rock, let alone metal shows) - didn't bother me though, I was in the golden ring.
* Lars kept getting out of rhythm, THAT was very annoying.

Overall - very good show.
If I could rank it, I would've given it an 8.1.
