Here we have the latest clever offering from YouTube sensation Rob Scallon, a banjo-riffic cover of Metallica’s “Battery.” It’s part of what Scallon is calling Maytallica, a month long celebration that we’re happy to endorse. Below, enjoy a country-fried version of this ‘Master of Puppets’ thrasher.
Over the weekend, Metallica headlined Rock in Rio USA, a rock festival that took over the Las Vegas Strip. Metallica's two-hour set was streamed around the world via Yahoo! Live, and you can check it out below (in case you happened to miss it).
Internet guitar dude—and possibly the closest thing to an up-and-coming guitar hero in whatever messed-up age we're in these days—Rob Scallon has come up with a good one. It's his cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman," performed entirely backwards, including guitars and vocals.
Finland's Steve ‘N’ Seagulls, the guys who brought you their acoustic, bluegrass-tinged covers of Dio's "Holy Diver" and Iron Maiden's "The Trooper," are back with a new cover—and a new video. Below, check out their new rendition of Metallica's "Seek & Destroy," which was posted to YouTube just yesterday.
What’s better than a master guitarist pouring his guts out through his strings? How about two master guitarists simultaneously pouring their guts out through their strings? You read me? Do I hear three master guitarists?
The April 18 episode of That Metal Show featured the first-ever Kirk Hammett-Michael Schenker jam session. If you happened to miss it, you're in luck, because you watch it all below. You also get to watch the pair rehearsing earlier that day.
No one ever went to a Led Zeppelin concert expecting the band to open with “The Rain Song.” A fine tune, to be sure, but the electric charge of a crowd in waiting must be met in kind. The same applies to the album: Kiss didn’t open Destroyer with “Beth,” for example. And Metallica had the prudence to place “Fade to Black” a good four songs into Ride the Lightning.
Three sisters from Monterrey, Mexico—better known as the Warning—have been turning up on a lot of monitors and iPhone screens lately. Why? It's probably their pretty impressive cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman."
