This Enter Sandman-Themed Halloween Light Show Is Spectacular

Metallica’s Enter Sandman sequenced with a Halloween light show… just epic.

While we haven’t been able to enjoy any actual live music for months now, Tom BetGeorge of Magical Light Shows has seemingly come up with the next best thing: a spectacular Halloween light show that is soundtracked by Metallica.
