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.
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.
By now you should be familiar with Chicago-based guitarist Rob Scallon, the guy who covers Slayer and Cannibal Corpse songs with banjos and ukuleles. Below, Scallon creates an original metal song with a guitar covered with a capo on the 14th fret, and it’s pretty impressive.
We admit this video is a lot more amusing if you're familiar with its two stars, Rob Scallon and Jared Dines. They're both guitarists who create hugely popular, guitar-centric videos that tend to get shared here on GuitarWorld.com.
In this new video, guitarist Rob Scallon—who brought you "Metal in Inappropriate Places" and other hilarious guitar-based masterpieces—plays a one-note metal song called "00000." Hey, sometimes one note is all you need!
