The November issue of ‘Guitar World’ magazine is going BIG, ‘Big 4’ that is.  

Their ode to the historic concert series includes a larger than life cover featuring the all-star axe-master’s from each 'Big 4' band photographed with their guitars. Mugging on the cover are Megadeth’s Dave Mustaine, Anthrax's Scott Ian, Metallica's double guitar slaying duo, James Hetfield and Kirk Hammett, and Slayer’s Kerry King. Take a look at the full cover here and let us know what you think!

The special Guitar World issue goes on sale the week of Sept. 14, which is the night that the ‘Big 4’ show takes over the Big Apple at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx, N.Y.

Leading up to the show Guitar World has lots of ‘Big 4’ behind the scenes action on tap with exclusive interviews, videos, and lessons from the bands. Visit for all the updates.

In other 'Big 4' news, Anthrax revealed plans earlier today for a co-headlining tour with Testament that kicks off one month after the New York 'Big 4' show.
