If anyone has any doubts that rock, including heavy metal, has its roots in bles, jazz, country, and other distinctly American forms of “classical” music, this will, or should, end those doubts.
This is from Iron Horse’s Fade to Bluegrass: Tribute to Metallica album. Like most of their albums that I’ve found it’s a compilation of old-school metal hits that have been converted to full-on bluegrass.
Every track I’ve heard has been awesome. I highly recommend this album and Iron Horse in general.
Honestly, when I first saw this clip I was expecting it to seriously hurt my brain but, as it turns out, the way that it did hurt my brain was in the fact that converting Metallica to bluegrass didn’t do so.
