Heavy-metal icon Metallica made rock history Sunday night by playing a gig in the most unusual of locales: Antarctica.

The Sunday night show, called “Freeze ‘Em All” in a riff on the band’s 1983 debut album Kill ‘Em All, was played in a transparent dome. The enclosure was packed with approximately 100 concert-goers made up of contest winners and research staff, Yahoo! News reports.

Metallica played 10 songs, including favorites like Master of Puppets, One and Enter Sandman. However, it wisely chose to skip Trapped Under Ice from the 1984 release Ride the Lightning — lest the group jinx everyone’s safety.

According to Metallica’s Facebook page, “the energy in the little dome was amazing! Words can not describe how happy everyone was.”

Metallica later posted the entire hour-long show on YouTube, where you can watch it without the need for thermal undies:
