That song got me through a lot of tough shit in the past, thanks for putting this song on newgrounds.
omg thats great..... ive been feeling depressed lately and this song kind of amplifies it....
Its ok not as good as the original song obviously but its pretty good at the begining
good guitarist. Thumbs up.
damn i love this song. it took a while for me to learn, and it was a little hard, but once you know it, it's not that hard to play. and yea, if i remember correct the harmony you had (right before the outro solo) is in 5ths. i dont know, i am not a HUGE music theory buff, but i think tht part was a bit off. and also, like a couple of other people noticed, the intro was a little slow. did you do it because the intro solo has that fast sweep picking part? oh well. either way, nice cover. fade to black is a song that really strikes a chord with me (no pun intended) because a friend of mine killed himself. he slit his wrists. in his suicide note, it said that life was no longer fun for him and he needed to just die. he was in deep depression, but he was so cool. anyway, this song makes me know how he felt. if only he had come to us for help.... anyway nice cover.
As a fan of Metallica (and specially of Ride the Lighning) i cannot resist to say that this has been one of the best covers i've heard around here.
I also speak as a guy that isn't good enough to play this great song :(
Keep it up, you totally rock!
BTW, have you thought about recording a singed version?
Please contact me if you would like to use this in a project. We can discuss the details.
