Iron Horse - Fade to Bluegrass: The Bluegrass Tribute to Metallica (2003)

To continue down the bumpy path of Metallica, Bruunski Beats now bring you the ultimate tribute album by the almighty Iron Horse!
"Metallica’s thundering drums, heart-pounding guitars and anguished vocals tell the story of people lost in the hustle of modern society. Bluegrass music sings the tale of people stuck between heaven and hell, the farm and the city and love and hate. In many ways Metallica and bluegrass are brothers, one raised in the urban jungle and the other in the country. So what happens when these two estranged siblings get together? "Fade to Bluegrass: The Bluegrass Tribute to Metallica" has the answer. Banjo and mandolin replace electric guitars and high lonesome harmonies soar in place of growling vocals to create a surprising and moving tribute. Performed with passion and skill by Alabama bluegrass band Iron Horse, and featuring classics such as “Unforgiven,” “Enter Sandman” and “Fade to Black,” "Fade to Bluegrass: The Bluegrass Tribute to Metallica" is a family reunion between brothers heavy metal and bluegrass."

Oh man, too bad that singer has such a thin voice! The music is great though. I once heard a bluegrass cover of War Pigs that absolutely killed, but no one knew the album or band. Ever heard of such a thing?
