Ok, so you may be asking yourself, “Why is a metal bass player being featured on Acoustic Nation?” Wait for it. By now we’re all convinced that Robert Trujillo is a monster bass player. The job of providing the low end in Metallica – a band known for their lineage of fantastic bassists – is no easy task. But Trujillo delivers. What you’ll discover today, however, is that Trujillo’s musicality stretches beyond the bass. That’s right, we’re talking classical guitar maestro over here.
Metallica performed a new song, the eight-minute-long "The Lords of Summer," in Bogotá, Colombia, Sunday night. It represents the band's first new original song since the tracks found on their 2012 EP, Beyond Magnetic.
Earlier today, the band posted a photo, which you can check out below, to their Facebook page, along with the caption: “Working out the kinks in the new song that we’ll be debuting in South America in a couple days.”
