Metallica fans and Beatles fans unite! No, seriously, unite, damnit! Mashup band Beatallica is back with their latest release, Abbey Load.
If you’re not familiar with Beatallica, which some of you probably aren’t, here’s a quick description. The band has every sound of Metalica- the thrash, the vocal style, the growls…but here’s the kicker- they play a combo of Beatles songs with Metallica songs.
Everything from “Help” to “Come Together,” there’s the classic Beatles songs. The band has also done stuff like Sgt. Hetfield’s Motorbreath Pub Band, The White Album, All You Need is Blood, “And Justice For All My Loving and other mashups of the two bands.
Dawning the stage names of Jaymz Lennfield, Grg Hammetson, Kliff McBurtney and Ringo Larz, this band offers up a fresh take on the classics.
Abbey Load is right on track and up to par with everything the band has done before. Both entertaining and mind-numbingly rocking, this is an absolute must-have for any fan of Metallica or The Beatles.
Hell, the guys from Metallica gave their seal of approval, so should you!
