Bite The Ivory - The Piano Tribute To Metallica


Vitamin Records press release:

"Metallica is the little engine that roars. That's Motorbreath. This heavy metal locomotive fuels its fire with anger, rage, and uncertainty. Your conductors are Hetfield and Ulrich. By making stops all over the world, Metallica has become the most popular metal band of all time. Beginning with 1983's Kill 'Em All, each subsequent album has brought car loads of new fans. The ride hasn't always been smooth, but Metallica has never been derailed.

This Piano Tribute to Metallica pulls away the iron panels of speed and coal-blackened distortion to reveal the fundamental element of the band's success: grandiose melody. With these arena-sized anthems laid bare, the haunting melodies are heard in their pristine beauty. Fortunately, it is impossible to fully suppress the Wagnerian sturm und drang of the music. Enter Piano Man!"

Release Date: 4/8/2008

01. The Ecstasy Of Gold

I think metallica derailed long, long ago.
I never heard it but I would say this is an alright album; Apocalyptica being a whole bunch better I would assume.

Wow, seems like something you should definitely get then.
Expanding your vocabulary (and mind) wouldn't harm you

No need to attack,its just that we definitly dont need another stupid apocolyptica type "tribute" thing to a band who has already been "tributed" the fuck out ov.

This thing would be really epic if they covered "Dyer's Eve"

Music was my life, music brought me to life and music is how I will be remembered long after I leave this life. When I die there will be a final waltz in my head that only I can hear.

I like this track listing here, although I don't think that covering The Unforgiven on piano is such a good idea. But, oh well, what the hell, might try it.
