Irish metal quartet Metallitia to rock Belfast

“Not another Metallica tribute band” you might say, “They’d never be able to pull that shit off”. Six years and countless gigs later this Irish metal quartet must be doing something right!

Since their formation in the summer of ’99 Metallitia have continually brought Metallica’s finest moments to an eager and hungry public. From sold out shows the length and breadth of this country of Ireland including Temple Bar Music Centre and Belfast’s famous Ulster Hall to some famous drunken english dates, this band are pulling out all the stops with their high energy and visually exciting shows.

This band wasn’t formed because it was a chance to make a quick buck off a really popular outfit, this was from a pure love of Metallica’s music and how much this music changed the face of metal and inspired the members of Metallitia to become the proficient players that they are.

Metallitia originally got together to commemorate the 13th anniversary of the late great bass monster Cliff Burton, performing tracks from the first three albums only. This era of Metallica is what Metallitia love doing and do best. Everything from “Motorbreath” to “Fight Fire with Fire”, “Battery” to the awesome “The Thing That Should Not Be”. Since the first gig Metallitia have expanded their repertoire to include something for every Metallica fan. If you preference is “…And Justice For All”, “The Black Album” or anything that followed then these guys are for you!

For the moment Metallitia will continue infecting people’s minds with all things Metallica. If you’re in any doubt then come to a show, crack open a beer and let the metal do the talking! As Cliff once said – “we’re not trying to be something big and fancy, it’s just us doing what we do”.
