Band Tries to Cover Metallica’s ‘Enter Sandman,’ Exits With Big Fail [Watch]
One of the best things about metal is that it’s nearly impossible to find a metalhead who doesn’t play any instruments or has never been in a band. It encourages creativity and sparks a drive inside young kids to go out there and try to pave their own way through their influences. Sometimes this is a double-edged sword.
This young band, who goes under the moniker Shadow Soldiers, makes a laughable attempt at covering the Metallica classic ‘Enter Sandman.’ The haphazard fumbling of the central riff gets things off to a rocky start, and things don’t go much better when the flat and unaggressive vocals come into play. Don’t worry, we haven’t figured out what that keyboard is for either. So far close to a half-million people have seen this 2010 YouTube clip. One listen of this and you’ll likely wish you were off to never never-land.
