Watch Jason Momoa React To Metallica's S&M2
Hollywood superstar Jason Momoa is continuing to prove himself as one of the absolute coolest metalheads on the planet, having been sent an advance copy of Metallica’s epic new S&M2 album (which is out now).
After getting a lovely new bass guitar for his birthday and jamming Red Hot Chili Peppers recently, now Aquaman/Khal Drogo has moved onto things on the heavier end of the spectrum, praising the metal titans and stating proudly in a video showing his shiny new copy of S&M2: “If you’re a Metallica fan, you’re a Jason Momoa fan; If you’re a Jason Momoa fan, you’re a Metallica fan.”
The actor adds of the ’Tallica record: “I got a really special present in the mail and I just want to show you some of it. It’s got everything in it, man. It’s amazing.”
Speaking exclusively to Kerrang! about S&M2, bassist Rob Trujillo reflected on bringing the power of orchestral music to metalheads: “…You’re sharing something that’s hopefully educating and helping a thrash metal fan to understand that this is going on too, and it’s very powerful.
“We might not even be onstage at that moment but I really believe everybody came out of that show with a heightened sense of not just respect, but knowing they experienced something special. For me, that was the goal and I think we achieved it both nights.”
He also continued of the two San Fransisco gigs as a whole, “We were actually very excited about it and not nervous; I love that feeling when you can go in with a different kind of nervousness. For me it was the excitement of doing something that I’d personally never done before, to feel the power of the orchestra, and to know that everybody in that building is absolutely excited and thrilled to experience this side of Metallica.”
