Bluegrass Band Tunes Into Metallica Cover
Nashville, TN -- A bluegrass band could rock the music world with a CD featuring down-home versions of Metallica tunes.
On Oct. 14, the group Iron Horse will release a banjo-plucking, Metallica cover album, "Fade To Bluegrass: A Bluegrass Tribute to Metallica."
When CMH Records asked the group to cover Metallica, vocalist Tony Robertson says he and his band members "sort of laughed."
"It seemed almost impossible," says Robertson because Metallica's music is "heavy, loud and brassy."
He says Iron Horse had to strip away the heavy metal from the basic melody and then find a way to make it bluegrass palatable.
Robertson thinks the results will be successful and predicts that bluegrass fans will really like the music because "it's so different."
And folks who love screaming to Metallica's music seem to enjoy screaming to the bluegrass version he says, especially women. Now, the group is working on a cover album of Ozzy Osbourne, which Robertson says is "gonna be something."
