New Music: New samples from Metal Hammer’s Metallica tribute album

Posted by jessepac on Tuesday, August 30, 2011 at 11:07 AM (PST)

metal hammer metallicaMetal Hammer, the leading heavy metal magazine for all of Europe, has been known to publish various tribute albums to legends of the field, calling in younger bands to cover some of the best songs of the genre. Much like their sister magazine, Kerrang!, the compilations are often varied in quality, but always leave at least one or two moments that nearly outshine the original works.

This year is the 20th anniversary of the seminal “black” album by Metallica and the line-up for the cover album includes DevilDriver, ICS Vortex, Lemmy, and many more. With over 15 million copies sold (and still going strong), it may go down as the best selling metal album of all time.
