Hear Royal Blood’s badass cover of Metallica’s Sad But True

Metal epic Sad But True gets the Royal Blood treatment for The Metallica Blacklist album.

Royal Blood have shared a cool-as-hell cover of Sad But True for The Metallica Blacklist album.

The Brighton duo – Mike Kerr (vocals, bass) and Ben Thatcher (drums) – take a relatively faithful approach for their rendition of the 1991 metal classic, adding a few Royal Blood‑y touches here and there along the way. Perfect.

The Metallica Blacklist as a whole is due out on September 10 via Blackened Recordings, and includes a whopping 53 reworkings of the The Black Album’s 12 tracks by Biffy Clyro, Weezer, Corey Taylor, Ghost, Miley Cyrus, Elton John, IDLES and loads more!
