Metallica’s been putting together an album called “Blacklist” which is a covers album of many different bands and artists covering Metallica songs from the “Black Album” only… as in celebration of the “Black Album”. Artists from all different genres cover Metallica songs from the “Black Album” and here is Weezer with their take on Metallica’s smash hit, “Enter Sandman”.
It’s pretty freaking awesome and Weezer nailed it just like they nail all the covers they do. Is there anything Weezer can’t do? It just proves even more that Weezer can play anything.
In this cover, sounds like they played all the riffs and rhythm parts note for note a little bit but they still sound like Weezer at the same time. It sounds pretty close to the original too, though.
Wouldn’t it be awesome if Weezer did a Metallica covers album? I bet they can pull that off with no problem. So far, this is the best cover I’ve heard for Metallica “Blacklist”.
