Well, it's finally May. And, as any up-to-speed guitar-centric internet fan knows, that's when Rob Scallon posts his popular "Maytallica" videos.

Typically, Scallon's Maytallica clips show him covering a Metallica song (or two, or 10) in a very unique way. Today's installment is his cover of “For Whom the Bell Tolls” using bell instruments.

Scallon employs an assortment of bells, plus a host of other percussive instruments including bowls and xylophones to create a "chimey," ethereal version of a metal classic.
