On the 30th anniversary of the release of Metallica’s Black Album (August 12), the band has unveiled more stirring covers from its upcoming compilation album, The Metallica Blacklist.
Singer-songwriter Chris Stapleton might come from a different musical world, but like so many others, but he loves for Metallica.
The Blacklist, a compilation of 53 covers of Black Album tracks by different artists spanning a variety of genres.
Stapleton’s covers “Nothing Else Matters.” His version is gritty and soulful, rooted in a blues interpretation of the classic heavy metal ballad. At well over 8-minutes long, his instrumental track sounds like it was recorded live. It features two guitar solos, including an outro solo that spans the track’s final three minutes.
