US groove metallers Devildriver are working on a cover of Metallica's "Holier Than Thou" for a special tribute to Metallica's self-titled classic album.

Last week the band updated their Facebook wall as follows: "DevilDriver is recording Metallica's "Holier Than Thou" for a 20th anniversary Black Album tribute! Drums were done yesterday (Tuesday, June 7th) and guitars start today (Wednesday, June 8th)!"

Some studio footage of the undertaking can be watched over at Blabbermouth.

More details regarding this anniversary release to follow.



Bonus trivia: In late 2009, Metallica's self-titled 1991 album (known as the Black Album) surpassed Shania Twain's 1997 CD, Come On Over, to become the best-selling album since Nielsen SoundScan began tracking sales for Billboard on March 1, 1991. To date, Metallica has sold more than 15,500,000 copies of the album.

I like the song "Holier Than Thou", I like playing it at least.

"Holier Than Thou" is definitely one of the most underrated Metallica songs, not just on the black album, but overall. It'll be interesting to hear Devildriver's take on it, but it probably wont be as good as the original...

No way, Devildriver are actually going to have a thrash song on one of their albums.

I wouldn't call the Black Album thrash...

Anyways, I might check out this tribute album. What I want to hear is whoever is doing "Of Wolf and Man" now that's a badass song.

Ya it was irony...like Devildriver =/= thrash so they partake in covering a non-thrash album from a thrash band.

That´s one ov their worst album...... it was the beginin´ ov the end for Metallica. Devildriver could do a cover for any ov the Kill em All instead.
Can´t wait to see them this August 8th

@Troy Gallant: A thrash song? HAHA! How can you even call "The Black Album" for thrash... That's the joke of the day.
