In their Sunday Lunch YouTube series, Robert Fripp and Toyah Willcox have covered a wealth of classic metal cuts, from Metallica’s Seek & Destroy to Korn’s Blind, and this week they added another feather to their caps with a hilarious take on Megadeth’s Holy Wars… The Punishment Due.

In this installment, the pair take on the opening track from the thrash metal icons’ fourth studio album, Rust in Peace, with the King Crimson man handling Dave Mustaine and Marty Friedman’s electric guitar riffs using a Les Paul and Toyah providing vocals while holding an inflatable crown balloon. Yep, it’s surreal, all right. Watch the video below.
