A few years ago I watched Sam Dunn's excellent documentary Global Metal (the follow-up to the excellent Metal: A Headbanger's Journey) in which he showed how metal is growing all around the world in developing countries one of which was India. Old Man Feind came across this today from Indian TV and I only wish Metallica still sounded this damn good!
If you've never seen Metal: A Headbanger's Journey or Global Metal you're missing some of the best documentaries you'll see and they're all about metal damn it so definitely seek them out! Sam Dunn also recently finished a documentary on Alice Cooper called Super Duper Alice Cooper that I've yet to check out but I definitely will.
This may be one of the best covers I've ever heard and it only makes me reminisce on how much I once was a die-hard Metallica fan. If only they still sounded half this good! Metal tours traverse the globe to places you've probably never thought of or heard of but as much as your mother may try to convince you otherwise metal is loved everywhere! But it's not just American & European acts traveling the globe bringing metal to the masses, metal advances when people are inspired to pick up an instrument and start a band. The metal community in India is still a growing one but with an appearance on Indian TV by Thaikkudam Bridge (official website) hopefully it will expand, grow and thrive! I have never said this before and I will probably never say it again but stick it out to the end of this one for an awesome... violin solo? What? Yup that's right but don't be fooled there are several guitars, drums and even keyboards in this most excellent cover of Metallica's Nothing Else Matters.
Just for comparison's sake here's the original live from back before Metallica grabbed the train into Sucksville!
