Kingsmen – Pay Tribute To 30th Anniversary Of Metallica’s ‘Black Album’ With Cover Of ‘Sad But True’12th August 2021 0 By John Deaux
Rhode Island metalheads KINGSMEN are paying homage today to the 30th anniversary of METALLICA’s seminal self-titled masterpiece the “Black Album” with a faithful rendition of the classic song “Sad But True.” Their hard-hitting cover is streaming now and a music video can be viewed at KnotFest.com. The band will take part in a live discussion about Metallica, the cover and upcoming tour at 1:45PM PT/4:45PM ET today at https://www.twitch.tv/knotfestofficial.
Commenting on the track, the band states:
“Metallica’s black album was monumental to our growth as musicians. Their presence as a band is unmatched, uplifting and inspiring. As an aggressive band, we decided it was best to honor them by recording a true to the roots cover of their heaviest track, “Sad But True”. Everything from the equipment to the recording techniques are ‘to a T’ the same as Metallica did in 1991. We wanted to show patronage to them by covering the song in a similar way to how they recorded it… but with an extra aggressive edge.”
“SAD BUT TRUE” AUDIO STREAM:
