Video: Metallica’s “Blackened” Played in the Style of Meshuggah

  • Axl Rosenberg

Ever wonder what Metallica’s “Blackened” would sound like if it was a Meshuggah song? Well, wonder no more — Bog Studios has the answer. And that answer is, “FUCKING HEAVY.” Like, I would happily listen to this for pleasure. I know it’s just a silly YouTube video, but seriously, this is how you do a cover: it’s recognizable as the original, but it’s distinctly not the original. It’s excellent. Check it out:

Lest we forget, Kirk Hammett actually did join Meshuggah on stage in 2015 for a rendition of “Bleed.” If you’ve never seen that before, enjoy some fan-filmed video below:
