Rhode Island metallers Kingsmen have released a cover of Metallica’s track Sad But True to celebrate the 30th anniversary of their Black Album.
“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,” says the band.
Kingsmen‘s debut album Revenge. Forgiveness. Recovery is out now via SharpTone Records, available to stream or purchase HERE.
