Ready For Another String Instrument Metallica Cover?

Posted by on August 12, 2010


It isn’t that unique to see heavy metal combined with classical music anymore. Vitamin Records has been releasing string quartet tributes to hard rock acts for a while now, and you’ve probably at least heard one song from Apocalyptica (who started out as a cello tribute to Metallica). But just recently, RollingStone.com posted a video interview and performance with violinist David Garrett. His new album Rock Symphonies features covers of songs like Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit,” Guns n’ Roses’ “November Rain,” Metallica’s “Master of Puppets” and Led Zeppelin’s “Kashmir.” You can watch Garrett performing the Metallica classic above.
