Kirk Hammett’s Fear FestEvil took place in the Bay Area this past weekend, the second year in a row the Metallica guitarist has combined his love of horror and metal into one event. Hammett was able to lure in Meshuggah and High on Fire to headline the show portion this year, making it a most excellent time for metalheads in and around San Francisco.

And so: the inevitable guest appearance! Hammett joined Meshuggah on stage for a guest solo in “Bleed,” and it sounds like… well, it sounds a lot like Kirk Hammett soloing over Meshuggah. Take that as you will. Here’s crappy cell phone video with decent audio (Hammett’s section starts around 4:40):

Meanwhile, Stone Sour are about to release a covers EP called Meanwhile in Burbank on Record Store Day, April 18th. Unsurprisingly it sounds a whole lot like Stone Sour covering Metallica; no major departures from the original here, although the addition of Corey Taylor’s voice to pretty much anything is always a good thing.

So… that happened.
