Yep, it's another Metallica cover. I recorded this mainly to test what sort of a sound I could get just using the bare minimum of tracks and such, sort of like a live rehearsal recording. So there is drums, bass, two guitars, vocals, and that's it. As a result there are bunch of harmony parts missing which you'll particularly notice after the first chorus. There's a few wrong notes as well, but I didn't want to get bogged down taking ages recording what was supposed to be as 'live' sounding as possible. Anyway I hope you enjoy it.

Extar responds:

Really? Oh well.


I'd have to say this is much better than your misfits cover, but the misfits cover was good, too.

Extar responds:

Is that still hanging over my head?

Metallica day!

Haha, speedmetalmessiah uploaded his cover of this today too. No complaints about anything, other than your fuzzy dist...but that not really your fault. You work extremely well with what you have. :P

Nice job on the vocals too. Singing lessons eh? Sweet!
Well, anyways, always gets my support, bro.

Extar responds:

Yeah I'm rapidly losing my patience with the distortion pedal I've been using. I didn't spend much time in the recording trying to tweak it to sound less fuzzy and horrible, as I was eager to get something recorded quickly. Some new distortion is already on my list of 'things to buy when I have money' :D
Thanks for the review, I'll have to check out what speedmetalmessiah did with the song now :D
