“The Heaviest Banjo in the Universe” Gojira Cover!
Just when you think the Metal Interwebs can’t possibly leverage any more hits out of covers of metal songs using goofy instruments, along comes our old, trusty friend Rob Scallon to make us giggle with delight.
His latest: a banjo cover of Gojira’s “The Heaviest Matter in the Universe” featuring Leo Moracchioli (Frog Leap Studios) on vocals. Scallon tells MetalSucks he only recently discovered Gojira, but instantly fell in love, “So it only made sense for me to bring back the banjo, buy every straw hat the local party city had in stock and give this a proper barn yard treatment.”
And a fine treatment it is, fellas! Well done. It’s right up there with Guy First’s hand-farted version of “Flying Whales.”
