It's better than the real thing: Once rivals, Metallica and Megadeth didn't share a stage until both of them had seen better days. Tribute bands Alchoholica (Metallica) and Degameth (Megadeth) recreate the clash of the titans the way it should have been, presenting sets primarily comprising old-school classics. Featuring former members of MSOD and Mo Rage, Degameth nails some of the sickest, gnarliest guitar songs ever. Frontman George Hartwig -- thankfully -- has a voice that's deeper than Megadeth's Dave Mustaine's trademark piercing vocals, leaving the shrieking to lead guitarist Jon Perotti. Alcoholica is a side-project for drummer Opus and guitarist Ross, whose main gig is playing in Dead by Wednesday, a metalcore on the roster of Jamey Jasta's Stillborn Records. As Mustaine once asked, "Can you put a price on peace -- or a show like this?" Visit www.clevescene.com/blogs for set lists.
