We’re still at a loss for words after hearing what Ben Eller did with Metallica’s classic debut album Kill ‘Em All. The album was recorded in minor key, but Eller decided to see what it would sound like if he played the entire thing in major key.
Let’s just say this, if Metallica would’ve recorded the album this way, they most likely wouldn’t be the rock legends they are today. Fortunately for us, and the entire world that loves Metallica, this is just a what-if scenario. We almost cried tears of disgust when we heard “Seek And Destroy” in major key. What is one of the most epic guitar riffs of all-time was lessened to that of an annoying TV theme song.
Anyone that can play Metallica chord for chord is a complete badass, but let’s just leave legendary alone and let the classics live on.
