Metallica have just released a trippy new version of their iconic Enter Sandman video
Metallica have released a brand-new version of their iconic Enter Sandman video – featuring none of the original clip’s plot, and just a bunch of killer footage of the band rocking out.
With loads of previously unseen rough-cut footage, this incredibly trippy Psycho Band Pass flickers between James Hetfield, Kirk Hammett, Jason Newsted and Lars Ulrich performing in Los Angeles in June 1991. It is taken from the Music Videos DVD included in the band’s upcoming Remastered Deluxe Box Set of The Black Album, and is an absolute treat…
If that’s not enough for you, Volbeat have just shared their thundering version of Don’t Tread On Me from The Metallica Blacklist. Both records will be out on September 10 via Blackened Recordings and can be pre-ordered here.
Metallica explain of the ambitious Blacklist project: “With contributions from countries all over the globe from the U.S. to Nigeria, there are tracks from singer-songwriters, country artists, electronic, and hip-hop artists alongside punk rockers, indie darlings, icons of rock, metal, world music, and many, many more covering the entire spectrum from musicians we’ve shared the stage with, to some who were not even born yet when the original album was released!
“In addition to raising money for charity, we wanted to show that Metallica’s music transcends genres, distance, and cultures, and we like to think that – with everyone’s help – we’ve done just that. It was important to us that the artists could choose whichever song they most connected to; it didn’t matter if we already had multiple versions of a song, if an artist wanted to cover that song, so be it. We were honored to have artists of this caliber want to be a part of the project and we hope you enjoy listening as much as we enjoyed putting it all together!
“One album, 12 songs, 53 artists, unlimited possibilities.”
