Video: Kirk Hammett Performs "Trapped Under Ice" with Death Angel
Kirk Hammett evidently knows how to throw a book party. The Metallica guitarist invited Bay Area thrashers Death Angel to perform at the release party for his new book, Too Much Horror Business: The Kirk Hammett Collection. (Hah! Take that, Jonathan Franzen!)
During the performance, Hammett joined the band for a handful of songs, including renditions of Metallica's "Trapped Under Ice," Kiss' "She" and, fittingly, Misfits' "Horror Business." You can watch fan-filmed footage from the performance below.
Hammett's relationship with Death Angel goes back more than two decades, when the Metallica guitarist produced the band's 1986 demo, Kill As One.
